    Heck, I have eight of the precise same special edition, anniversary model, with just subtle variations in wood grain. All made within a few weeks on one another, as I understand it.

    The more similar certain guitars are, the harder you have to concentrate to tell them apart. I think it can be good for ya, to focus on things like this from time to time. Other times, just turn up LOUD and get on with it! :^)

    1) Highway one tele w/ Klein Fatman in the bridge. Relic'd by Dax an Co and a buffalo nickel in the headstock. This one feel's the best to play and has a great warm tone to it.
    2) '91 American Standard. This is my at home, play on the couch guitar currently. I play it the most. Feels great and sounds great with the SD QuartPound bridge.
    3) '13 American Standard. Currently my C standard guitar. I play this guitar only on a few songs but I put a Bare Knuckle Pile Driver in the bridge and it is mean!
    4) '13 MIM Standard. Played way better than I thought. Currently torn apart for a special project.
    5) '16 Custom Aluminum. Plays well, a slight intonation issues. Weighs 14lbs.....14!!

    That was easy. Love both, but my MIA is practically perfect in every single way - like Mary Poppins.

    I have 3.

    My favorite is a partscaster with Fender OV pickups. Twangs for days. Setup is pretty good, but probably could be better. Very comfortable. Black w/ 3 ply white.
    Second is a Peavey Gen EXP. Nicely put together. Has the Fishman pickup option. Gold w/ black. Pickups are polite.
    Last in another partscaster. Black w/ gold everything. Bigsby on a Vibramate. Needs a little work. The differing string tension tends to pull the Bigsby out of line. And because it has a 3-barrel bridge, the spacing never stays right. I could correct the latter by grooving either the saddles or the Bigsby. Has SD Broadcaster pickups which are also very nice. A little work, and it would be great for the right song.
