Collings for sure
Samick ... because they make 90% of the guitars for all the brands at all price points.
My heart says Gibson,
My head says Fender,
My wife smiles and says: Louis Vuitton.
Hallmark Custom 60 or Custom 65. Absolute best guitar on the planet, in terms of tone,fit & finish, tuning stability & vibrato. Don't believe me? try one, if you can find one. My Hallmark Custom 60
blows away my '72 Strat, my Custom Shop Tele, and my Mosrite.
For accoustic, I have always preferred Guild; love my '77 D-50. Martin,Gibson, & Takamine are also great.
For pedal steel...Emmons push-pull is the tone you want. Nothing else compares; it is the Hammond B-3 of steels.
Agree 100% Fender is not in the same league with Gibson when it come to acoustic guitars. That's why Gibson wins this one hands down fir me. Not to mention Gibson's semi hollow and hollowbody jazz boxes. No contest.
No one for Hagstrom??? C’mon, the 8 string Viking bass??
Fender does not own Guild anymore, and they never owned Takamine. They only distributed them when they owned Kaman, parent corporation of Ovation and Applause, the largest music gear distributor, but they sold Kaman a few years ago when they decided to get back to their core business of guitars and amps. Where do you guys get this mis-information? Jeez! Whoever bought Kaman now owns Ovation and Hamer, and Cordoba owns Guild, because they bought them from Fender. Takamine is an independent Japanese company, which is now distributed by another independent Japanese company, ESP. Tacoma has been defunct for many years. Fender only bought them to get their factory to build Guild acoustics, and promptly shut down Tacoma after that. And, Gretsch is owned by Fred Gretsch III. Fender builds Gretsch guitars for him under contract.
So easy I don't even have to say the name...
Kaman, and so also Hamer, Ovation, and Applause are now owned by an Irish company called DCC, which is in retail, oil, healthcare, and technology. They were owned by Jam Industries, a Canadian company which owned, Kaman, US Music, AVS, and some other music and audio companies, and DCC bought JAM.
Is have to agree with the OP’s choice of Gibson, based on their acoustics over Fender acoustics. I might consider Collings as well based on their electrics and acoustics.
After years of Gibson’s and Fenders, I’m really happy with my PRS McCarty Gold Top Double Cut with Harmonic Design Soap Bars. Stays in tune. Frets are tall enough. Great sustain. Looks snazzy. I’d get a Mayer pseudoStrat and a new McCarty with PAFs.
That being said, the Collings 290 with a Lollards Staple P90 in the neck would be my better than the PRS choice.
As a couple have said I’ll take fender with all their subsidiaries. Which is pretty mich my guitar collection

Ernie Ball Music Man? Because this Cutlass here has not only taken over all of my playing time on electric, it has (I swear to God) made me a better player.
But the thought of going without a tele, or a National, or my trusty 000-18, just gives me the willies. One amp company I could do: Marshall, Orange, Bad Cat or Vox would all work. But until EBMM starts making acoustic guitars, resonators and telecasters, couldn't do it.
Thank goodness this is never a real situation.
Kind of a dumb thread.
Rickenbacker. Because owning a room full of them would be amazing and surreal.
Fender! I can literally cover every base from there!
