    I cast "Other" because my favorite, of course, is the Telecaster. Why is it not among the choices?!

    This picture should've had a les paul with no pickguard.

    In fact, my favorite is this one. A 2014 Telecaster Prototype in Sunset Burst, #21 of 50.

    If we're doing architecture a les paul is a split level ranch in the suburbs with vinyl siding.

    Visually, Telecasters are interesting.

    They lack classical lines, the headstock shape is oddly proportioned and their bodies a slab. They look like the homemade creation of an amateur luthier, built after work in a garage serving as a wood shop.

    They are, because of these things, the most honestly beautiful electric guitars ever built.

    I shouldn't even ask, but...

    Be hard to pick one in particular, but it would be an acoustic (probably OOO size) Nice shape.

    I'd have to go with a Rickenbacker 330, 360, or 620, in Fireglo.

    Seems silly that's where you'd fall at good old TDPRI, doesn't it?

    Anyways, I vote for the 335. I don't own one, but they are fun to look at.

    I saw this Santa Cruz Guitar Company acoustic at the 2019 NAMM that I could have killed for. It was drop-dead beautiful and sounded like heaven. Had a nice chat with the representative. I told her it will have to be in the next life. She said there will be one waiting for me! Cheers!

    This is my 1977 Ibanez Les Paul with, what's that? The original humbucker covers.

    Not the original humbuckers however. I have no idea what happened to those.

    If your loins are ringing, you may have pennitus? There was a thread earlier today . . . the consensus was to see an ENP as soon as possible.

    Agreed, moving Les Paul to St Peter Cathedral... Usonian House, is that the one that cantilevers over the river? Because that is SO STRAT!!! Looks like teles are ok at porta-John’s then....
