    I "prize" all of my guitars equally. I wouldn't want to lose any of them for any reason.

    the one and only electric I own (have to look out for a backup soon) is this AV 52 RI. My to-go-guitar. Covers any style for me and plays like a dream. In a fire I would be tempted to save my more expensive archtops or my 30 year old classical guitar though.

    I think this one: my 69 Esquire in Olympic White because:
    light-weight 69 body, 69 Bridge Pu, 6130 fretted 69 neck.
    And 69 was a good year for me, born 1948.

    That's an easy one: my new 2008 Vintage Hot Rod '52 Tele, of course!

    First off, it's probably worth more than all of my other guitars combined. And, it's so dang purty, it became my instant fave.

    That's why it's so hard just picking one -- I love them all! Here's my DGT -- FANTASTIC guitar:

    But if I have to pick just one, it has to be my Taylor 816ce. I just love this guitar:
