    The Warmoth telecaster i assembled and modified myself. 5 years on the same set of strings and it still plays and sounds great. I’ve never broken a string on this guitar! It’s magical or it’s possessed!

    When I bought my '52 AVRI Hot rod, I thought that would definitely be my forever guitar. And I still love it, however, I have been GASing recently for a EBMM cutlass HSS. I guess it is more than likely another case of N+1....

    My Warmoth-based parts tele, for sure, absolutely. Put it together 10 years ago and it's been a great partner ever since. But I wouldn't be happy if I couldn't at least have an acoustic. I love my current acoustic, but a great-sounding J45 would be the dream "one acoustic" for me.

    Easy for me : Duesenberg Starplayer. I sold 3 other guitars when I bought mine V, because they became redundant. V IMG_20201204_143629.jpg IMG_20201204_143326.jpg VERY versatile and a joy to play.

    Plus one on the Guild T100D. My go to is actually a T100 that a previous owner modded by adding an Epiphone (of all things!) humbucker at the bridge. It’s not a decision I would have made, but it adds a weird, magical versatility to it. I swear by this guitar.

    Yeah, great mention on the under-sung T100D.

    I have a fair few really beautiful guitars and the other day I was thinking if the house goes up in flames (praying it won't) which one would I have to grab. I have an American original 50s tele which has had lots of little upgrades (basically the neck and body are original - most of the rest has been subtly upgraded). I love that guitar and its become my go to everytime I have a spare few minutes - I wirelessly run it through a Yamaha THR30II and away I go. I have other guitars that are worth far more but with all the mods its pretty irreplaceable - if the house burns down its the one that's coming with me.
    I think JoBo said something similar about one of his - maybe the Terry Reed tele? - or did I dream it? Makes perfect sense to me but can you imagine all those Lesters going up ... ouch!:(:)

    That scenario came awfully close to home this past summer, and it was completely real for many in several towns in Oregon (other places too I know). That would be a time for saving skins, not guitars.

    That "which one" quandary would probably get me burned up but, to answer the thread question, I would probably choose the one I've had the longest, my classical Takamine.

    Tough question! Probably my Les Paul ‘55 signed by the man himself. Alternates are a GE Smith tele signed by Sonny Landreth and John Hiatt. I would give my brother’s ‘59 Jazzmaster back to him. And a bunch of others behind :(
