    I hope to be in your place soon :) Or else guitars will become a very expensive hobby.

    I call mine puddin' because she's the color of banana pudding.

    Puddin's an excellent guitar, I'll take her and my dual P-90 SG over every other guitar I've ever owned or played. Funny how puddin' got her name within the first week of owning her, but the SG remains unnamed.

    I already own it.

    My USACG surf green tele I built. It's the best guitar for me. I would be lost without it.

    My Les Paul Traditional. With Fenders, I find I can get exactly what I want with an upgraded MIM, so no need to go U.S. by default.

    Tough call but have to go with an ES335 or H535 and a runner up of a big box archtop (heritage super eagle).


    I've played dozens plus owned about 12 335-type semi-hollows ranging from lawsuit MIJ, to Korea, to China and really none of them was quite what a basic 335 is for some reason. It's one of those guitar formulas where if you don't stick to the full recipe...it won't taste right.

    Probably an ES175- maybe a 135, with P90s. My Baja and Classic Player Strat are perfectly good enough to rely on for any purpose, with minimal modification. My Korean 335 clone covers that side of things pretty effectively.

    If we added acoustics, I'd always take a National over imported Resos. Easier to find a good J45 or D28 clone than a quality imported Reso.

    My first issue Peavey Predator is the USA electric I still have. Changed to alnico pups, new switch, and Grovers. Trem needs changed, though. Also have a T-40, pretty good bass for being found in a trash can, lol.

    While we're in fantasy land, I'll take a '59 Burst - preferably one named Hotlanta.

    But I would miss my teles.

    Easy I would build another Carvin DC 145. Own or have owned about anything you can name but keep coming back to the Carvins. Just something about how they feel and respond + they hold up on the road better than anything else out there that keeps me hooked.
    Right now my # 1 is this mahogany neck and body Ruby Quilt 2002 DC400.

    What I currently own:[​IMG]
    '91 Studio Lite. I could only afford it 'cause it came to me in pieces, but it's the nicest guitar I've owned so far.
    If I had to pick from the MIA stuff I owned so far (but don't have anymore) would be my '68 Gretsch Rally

    Because by now I could fix what was wrong with it myself, instead of spending hundreds having somebody else hack it together, and still not fix it...

    Hard to narrow down, and it flips depending on which guitar I'm playing. This week I'd say my Gibson ES-347, since it can play pretty much everything:
