    I can't tell you.
    Well, I can say it's the guitar to the left in my avatar. But I don't know what it is.
    Oh sure, it's an 'explorer' copy shape, MIJ, and may or may not be labeled "Gig" as a brand label on headstock. I have no idea about this mystery guitar but I love it.

    I like SG's, V's, Explorer e2, and Firebirds from Gibson. Any big body guitar from Gretsch. Jaguar and Jazzmaster.

    My trusty old 00-18 Martin, it's been around the world with me from Tahiti to the Caribbean.

    My good old friend.

    The definition of “main guitar” and “other guitar” probably varies among us TDPRIers. If “main guitar” means the most important one in my collection, that would be my 1983 Japanese vintage Hohner G-940 acoustic. It is the most important because it’s a quality guitar that plays and sounds great, has been with me for 36 years and has a lot of sentiment behind it. I’d hate to go back to owning just one guitar, but if that scenario were forced upon me, this would be the guitar I’d choose. I’ll never part with it, and one of my children will inherit it.

    But a tele is what I play the most these days. I have four, and spread the love around. If “other guitar” means other electric, I’ve got a Logan Custom Challenger, my only guitar with humbuckers. I’ve had it for five months now, and it’s not going anywhere, but I’m still adjusting to playing with humbucking pickups after eleven years of single coils, so I’m not sure this qualifies as the “other guitar” as you seem to present it in your OP.

    It may well be that my “other guitar” by your definition is my “main guitar.”

    Here’s the group. My Hohner is the one hanging on the left in the pic.The four teles, and the tele acoustic/electric in the middle on the couch, are all Logan Customs, and the aforementioned Logan Custom Challenger loaded with humbuckers is the Orange Haze guitar on the stand.

    Had one just like that in the 90s. Very good instrument. Replaced it with a 335.

    I’m a strat guy. An Ibanez Scofield semi-hollow and a tele with P90s are my “other guitars”.

    Jazzmaster at the moment. My US Strat is my best, most playable guitar but it’s not as fun!
