Is there a big difference between J and first on LH to FRA?
Can you elaborate pls?
You said to where but not from where, so I'm guessing you mean from Debrecen. I'll elaborate for you, the major difference is that business is the so called "EuroBiz" which is an Economy seat but the middle seat is blocked for comfort. First class on the other hand they bring a recliner onto the plane and remove the seats for you. Plus you get a complimentary bottle of whiskey

I understand that you want to make a point, but....

As a travel guru you should know there ain't J and F from Debrecen to FRA. It must be a long haul flight to qualify....: -)

🤒
NYC
J is 2-2-2 configuration on most if not all LH flights FRA-NYC
F is Single seats. Service in F is unreal. FCT is definitely the dealmaker. I spent 5 hours in the FCT.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Is there a bed in F or just a bigger seat? Is it a suite or open?

Would United allow a guitar in a hard case onto the flight as carry on baggage?
If yes,Would it be counted as carry on bag or as personal item?
Any difference if traveler has MPE or Club card?

Yes. Officially it would be counted as a carry on but I've done it with another carry on suitcase, YMMV.
Credit card won't help.

Any chance they would force me to check it in?

They shouldn't force you to check in the guitar (according to the terms on united.com) but you never know what a gate agent or a FA will insist on.

United should be the last airline to do that ;)

Iím pretty sure the one thing a lot of airlines have in common is that they donít learn from their mistakes. Amirite?
