    My favorite non-tele/Esquire as of late is a buckskin brown Strat-type.

    Mine is my barncaster style Les Paul junior. One p90, no grain filler or paint and really light. It's got an unfinished and, for me at least, fast neck. Simple guitar with bags of character, handmade by a bloke in Wales.

    Currently my favorite non-tele is a partscaster I built after the Music Man Albert Lee. P.A.F. style pickups, "vintage meets modern."

    I guess my Dot would be my number 1. My Tele and SG are tied for second place.

    Since AAT65 beat me to the AO Jazzmaster, I'm going with my favorite slouched-on-the-couch, never-go-away -without-it Mule.

    For electric it is only my Telecaster. I have a very nice AV62 Strat but haven’t played it in years.

    I do spend a lotta time with one of these, though. 92F201EA-4783-4378-9327-63B2930653EA.jpeg

    Good mix...

    I see a good showing for Gretsch, a few LPs (BUT I bet the Juniors are more popular with Tele owners), some nice acoustics...

    My favorite is probably my Gretsch... Its serial number puts its production within DAYS of my date of birth.

    Nice... I think a matching headstock is the one thing that could improve my JM..!

    I hope my computer keyboard doesn't "short out" by me drooling on it from all these choices. ;)
    I guess I'd have to go with this one. PRS SE ONE. As you see in second pic, it now sports an added neck pickup. all new 002.JPG all new 046.JPG

    My Strat, a CS Wildwood 10, ‘61 Relic. While I don’t consider any of my guitars to be irreplaceable it would be the last to go. I slightly prefer the feel of only remaining Tele, it’s not as good overall as either of my Strats.

    Favorite non Tele is a Gibson USA ES-335. There are many like it but this one is mine.
