  • what was the nicest playing guitar you ever played? do you own it? if not, why?

    i'm not talking pricetag, so leave the class war BS at home.



    i'm talking about the one that you picked up, started playing and said to yourself, 'damn! this one has it.' (however you define "it").



    was it an inseparable bond from that point on? did you put it back on the shelf, only to have it gone the next day when you realized your mistake and went back? did you buy it and foolishly sell it later? does it belong to a close friend who you're trying to convince to sell it to you?



    post 'em if you got 'em, and share a story or two if you are so inclined.

    This one, Tom Anderson Swamp Ash Classic with Fralin vintatge hots in the neck and middle, and a steel pole 43 in the bridge. Perfection. I sold it when my wife got pregnant the first time. I sold it to a guy from Hong Kong, he was in the states for 2 weeks and I shipped it out to him in LA before he left.

      The nicest guitar(s) I've ever played is any one of a dozen or so in my collection that I have setup myself.

                yeah, i get it; most any guitar can be a really nice player with the right set-up and tweaking. do you have one in the dozen (or so) that "brings it" just a bit more than the rest though, or it is really just as simple for you as a set-up to personal tastes?

                    Excuse the crappy photo but I'm going to have to go with my Reverend Flatroc

                    http://wickedchickenz.com/kit/photos...t/IMG_0021.jpg



                    It was a total crapshoot since there weren't any Reverend dealers around but my wife got the rest of the family to chip in to get it as my 2007 Christmas gift. Instantly it felt great and has been played heavily since then. I need to rewire it as one of the pots (or caps) seems to ahve gone bad and now there are no mids and highs. It could probably use a refret to as the first 6-7 frets are pitted to hell.



                    I have several other great feeling/playing guitars in my collection but the Flatroc will always be my first love.

                      My point is this:



                      It's not the guitar. I can bring it whenever I need to as long as the guitar is setup to my preferences. The guitar is really a bit player a that point.

                              One of the nicest playing guitars I have ever picked up and was really impressed with the feel and set up was at summer NAMM this year. It was a Zerberus Guitar, made in Germany.
