      Is it 1975 again?

        I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks.

          I'll play. Mine would be a ESP Mirage Custom into a Randall RG 100 head on a angled 4x12 Celestion G12 80s.

          In 1987.

            Only one guitar? Only one amp? No effects? Any guitar with both a single-coil and a (preferably splittable) humbucker into any decent modern modeling amp.

            If that's cheating, then **************** versatility, clean tones, the neighbors, and my hearing and give me a Les Paul (or reasonable facsimile) into a Marshal JCM800.
            Punk rock is a work ethic.

              Tone King Falcon. I've never been legitimately blown away by how good an amp sounds before

                Honestly, I could live with any of my strats through any of my three main amps.

                Best? Uh... I'd probably go with a Fender Masterbuilt with a beefy bridge pickup and a Tone King Metropolitan.

                  into a Fender Twin Reverb (ideally a Fender Twin Reverb preamp section into a McIntosh power amp, but that's a little extreme).

                    Rickenbacker (w/toaster pups) into an AC-30

                      Ewww....! Reminds me of this:

                      I'll take an SG with P90s into an AC30, or a Strat into a JTM-45...

                        Strat and deluxe reverb

                          I don' know about best but pretty much anything plugged into my Mesa Boogie Electra Dyne sounds great. The only negative is the reverb control being on the rear.

                              I totally wish I had the money to buy one of those.
