I’ve got the trinity and four of the six.
Ain’t I special!
I have a Double Trinity, plus an SG.
I have 10 of the 11. Missing the SG and i don’t care to own one. Just me.
LOL! I need to confess that I’m not a member of either club. Lesters are just too damned heavy for my old bones.
well, the Holy Trinity is pretty much Church Doctrine I think. But the sexy Sixpack is definitely open to interpretation. Substitutions are no charge.
Since my '61 Reissue SG is by far the best guitar I own, I'd put it in the trinity! My Les Paul is great, but there's nothing it can do the SG can't do better.
But I do think my SG is a one-in-a-million guitar, so there's that.
I don't own a Fender P-Bass, but I have an early 80s Ibanez Roadstar PJ that plays as well as any P-Bass I have held. So the only guitar I'm short on is a 335. That said, I think a hollowbody archtop is more useful than a 335 when you have everything else on the list, so I'll stick with my Casino rather than shop for a 335.
4. LP Jnr
If i want to turn it into a Top 10:
11. Les Paul
12. B&G Little Sister
Not even the Marx Brothers?
Holy trinity* here, and they’re my only electric guitars.
* If an Epiphone Les Paul counts...
My sexy six pack? 6 Telecasters!
Wow, lots of SG hate...
Don't know why, one of the most popular guitars of all time.
I love my new '61 SG and prefer it to the R8 Les Paul that I once owned but it should be replaced on that list with a Gretsch. Gibson and Fender aren't the only guitar makers that powered modern music.
I'm a lover of Leo's old tweed-era circuits, and found that a Tele and a Strat really do it for me in those amps, where the Les Paul gets muddy pretty quick. My Les Paul wasn't getting much love until I flipped the magnet in the neck pickup to get the Peter Green thing going. Now I play the Les Paul almost as much as the Fenders.
Sick, Strats and Les Pauls?
Beer Gut Five, add:
Gretsch 6120 Chet
Replace the 335 with a 339 and a Jazz for a P....
Member of no clubs here too.
For the trinity, I'd argue to type not brand. That's what I've basically done, with one Tele, one LP and a bass (Jazz in my case).
Can these do all the sounds of the others mentioned above? Nope, of course not. And they could just as easily be Strat, SG and P-bass. Or whatever. The point is, they do the three basic sonic flavours of single coil, humbucker and something that goes boom.
I tend to think of it in terms of food, like white, blonde and brown roux - pretty basic starting point, but with these you can construct so much.
But, not everyone wants or needs that, and that's totally fine.
Incidentally, I arrived at this accidentally, for the guitars at least. I did actually need the goes boom thing. I constructed the theory only after I got the Tele and I realised how well it was working out for me.
I thought of Gretsch, and I've owned a Nashville 6120. But, I just couldn't handle the Bigsby or the poor upper fret access. The Filtertrons are fabulous, but since practically all Gretsches come with a Bigsby, I crossed it off my list.
