    Perhaps.

    But fellow member @Pete Baker sure is. He was the frontman for a rockin' little band called The Agitators ;) They were great!

    Congrats, you'll own more and more guitars someday I'm sure, not just the big 3. It's addicting, for me anyways.

    Cool lineup.

    I didn't see you mention your Gibson ES-335. Did you forget?

    Glad you have your "big 3", however you need a few for guitars in that collection. I'm sure you can find something you didn't even know you needed.:D

    I chased the big 3 for a long time too when at first big 3 made me think Tele Strat LP then i changed to HB SC P90 thinking. Then it morphed to brand names.... Now I have 13 Electrics. If I had to get it down to 3 right now it would be 2020 LPJr because it's so simple but can do so much - tons of tone in that thing, 2012 G&L Bluesboy for the hb sc combo, 3rd would probably be a Strat.

    So after 40 years I'd have come full circle right back to a variation of Strat LP Tele....go figure

    I was thinking big 3 as in Fender, Gibson and PRS. Obviously I have a Squier and Epiphone but close enough. I'll admit I have tried a Epiphone Casino and I always wanted one but it never found its way back to my home.

    I have a handful of acoustics. I'll admit that I take acoustic a little more serious than electric because that is my primary instrument at the moment. My main acoustics are my Blueridge BR-140 and Guild M-20.

    The amps I have been using are a Fender Super Champ X2 combo and Marshall Origin 50 Head with matching 212A cabinet. I really stopped using pedals long ago but sometimes I use a Behringer Vintage Tube Overdrive into a Behringer HM300 for a Metal sound.

    Hollow body / Gretsch?

    your journey was great because you tried a lot of different styles to find the ones that suit you best. I do warn you that your tastes will change and the journey will continue
