  • If you could play only one of your electric guitars

    I'd pick my G&L Tele. It just goes everywhere. No need for hums

    If I had to pick something was comfy to play and hold, really delivered a bunch of awesome tones, and I could one haz one, right?

    Drum roll please.

    However I have a lot of guitars and would not pick that particularly one if I was a Jazzer, nor would I pick that one if I played rootsy blues music.

    That's why I have different tools for different jobs.

      I love the PRS thing. Just great. That being said, I may never own one

          There's no way any single guitar can provide all the various tones I need.

          You might as well ask which one of the kids I love the most. There is no answer for a question like that!

            Never say never. This one was a little costly, but if I was gonna do a PRS I wanted a 10 top and birds.

            Tried a ton of em, including non Tremolo McCarty's. The Custom 22 spoke to me.

            I have a TN Rose with the Hi Filtertrons. It's a very nice pick up and guitar that has played more than a few shows in recent years. I also have a Gretsch Power Jet, I like that a lot too. It actually have a slicker neck and TV Jones pick ups.

              If I had to pick just one, it would be my SG. No, it won't do everything, but, as has been pointed out, no single guitar will, but it will do more different things than most guitars will.

              Fortunately for me, I'm a bass player, so picking one guitar won't affect me much.

                  My 1990 BC Rich HSS superstrat. Easy question.
                  It's not about money or popularity , although some money would be nice.

                        If I got me one of these, would that count as one guitar or five?
