It's a toss up between these two
Well... My Tele is my #2, taking a backseat to my esquire. Next in line, however, is the Gretsch G5420T I bought early in this Covid mess for something to play with.
Electric: My Squier Bullet Special with a Bootstrap Skookum 90 Mean bridge pickup only, except it’s down for service right now, so I’d likely grab my Danelectro Convertible.
Acoustic: Godin 5th Ave acoustic (although it does have a ‘50s DeArmond “monkey on a stick”).
And I can’t believe two of you posted this same guitar right after I spotted one for sale. Probably the Godin electric I most want.
Are we talking about acoustic or electric? If the former, I'd say a J45. If the latter, I'd say a Les Paul.
My ES335 gets a ton of use. I really like this full hollow body ibanez artcore also. Stock pickups were absolute garbage but when replaced with Seymour Duncan’s it’s super fun guitar with great tone (although definitely made with cheapo components and wood).
My Mosrite JR style kit build gets the most attention
My Taylor 815ce. So much resonance that I often think my phone is vibrating in my pocket when I play it sitting down!
For looks-appearance, I love 1950s Les Pauls.
The carved top models made between 1953-1960, specifically.
For sound, I like Filtertron equipped Gretsch guitars.
For acoustic guitars, Martins sound best, and Gibsons look coolest.
The blue Tele and the goldtop PT are tied for #1 depending on my mood. I guess that makes the Hamer Sunburst #3.
Martin's are nice, but they're not my style.
My good buddy there is a union-made '76 Guild D-35. (The brand giveaway is the curvy pickguard.)
It's my second Guild. The first was a late-sixties D-25. Wish I still had it. Can't even remember what I did with it. Those were the daze!
My strat and my tele are both #1
My current number 1s are
Electric: a Strat
Acoustic: a Taylor 814ce I bought when I lost strength in my hands due to tennis elbow.
But my electrics get almost no time these days. When I have a reason to play them again, we'll see if the Tele or the LP Special take the top slot.
My Collings mandolin probably got the most playing time over the last 3 months.
And now that I've regained some strength in my hands I'm ready to get my Martin dread out of the case again.
My #1 2010 Am St next to my #10 2003 Squier Standard
A tele shaped bullet of course
Hard to pick a number one or a number two. The current rotation, in no particular order of preference:
2007 AS Tele with Fralin Steel Pole 42s, Carvin SH-550, 2008 Gibson LP Std, 2020 Gibson ES-335 (replacing a 2012 model), Epi Dot with Fralin P-92s.
Here's mine. A 2014 Gingerburst Studio. Needed a cap change or treble bleed, forget what he did, but yeah its a nice little guitar. I may end up trading it in on a 335 sometime in the future though
Geeze! Must I choose one of the lovelies over another? Man! My wonderful wife asks me every so often, "How many favorite guitars does one man need?" And My answer is always the standard one, "Need? What need? Who needs more than one guitar? Need has no place in any conversation about guitar ownership."
This will convince her.
