    My ‘64 Casino, Perfect in every way... tone, feel, mojo. My only 100% stock guitar (other than having no pickguard). All original electronics.

    It just does what you want a ‘64 Casino to do.

    Close second is my vintage ES345 stereo. Just had a magnet flip

    Well, considering my playing is not perfect I'll stick to my unperfect guitars. We make a perfect couple!

    This is hard.......I have some really , really great guitars...... They just dont work equally well for everything , all though my taste in music , AND talent arent that varied/great.... Many of us are tinkerers as well , but I'm done swapping bridge pu from one guitar to the next to make that one perfect......
    I don't have that much time to p,ay with the band these days , but I always try to learn more about my gear , and bring a different guitar or amp each time , if I remember........... My drummer , wo plays guitar in other bands often ask me : You sounded great last week , why change ?
    I always answer : Why not ?

    All five of my Gretsch guitars and both Rickenbackers were purchased new and arrived in perfect condition including the setup. I've owned many, many Fenders (still have more than a dozen), and they all needed some tweaking to the action.

    I had an Ibanez AF-120 about 10 years ago (not an artcore) that was superb, it was second hand but everything was original and like new. No setup needed, fantastic neck, intonation, put it on the neck pickup and rolled off the tone about 95% and it was perfect (for me) jazz tone.

    I haven't modified any of my guitars, I built a Tele which came out pretty close to perfect, just a happy accident.

    My '06 American Series Tele. Other than having to fix the jack that was shorting out last week, it's always been perfect in every way - feel, mojo, tone, weight.

    Les Paul R8 2007.
    Telecaster Standard 60th anniversary model 2011.

    They both are exactly what I was looking for in sound, playability, neck shape and weight.
