strat with tele bridge pickup
Gibson ES 335
Tele and a Les Paul. Hopefully I would have a neighbor with a Strat, a Gretcsh, and an ES175 that I could borrow once in a while!
Nashville Tele and 335- got 'em
1) a Tele (that's the easy one)
2) either a 335 or a Ric 12str depending on my mood. (today it's definitely the Ric but tomorrow it could be the Gibson)
2 Electrics - Tele and a Les Paul (man I'd miss the Strat whammy)
only 2 of any type - Martin OM and Tele
A custom made Tele body style with mini humbuckers, "which I will be making this spring". And something with P90's.
Two G&L guitars, but the choice would be hard. Probably my ASAT Classic Buttterscotch Blonde and my S-500 Signature, but then... love my Tribute Deluxe too (and my PRS Custom and Gibson Les Paul Custom from the early nineties)... You can never have enough guitars...
If we're talking electrics only then my ES-137 and USA '52 RI tele.
If we're talking all guitars then my ES-137 and Gibson Country Western.
Les Paul and strat
I play about 50:50 slide and fingerpicking, slide only on electrics so:
My Bourgeois MS Sig. Not ideal, but as close to an all-rounder as I have played.
For the electric, a 2*P90 Warmoth chambered hardtail bitsa.
My Gretsch 5420 and the telecaster I plan on building next.
Solid poplar body, rosewood fretboard, transparent red finish. Filter'tron in the neck position, reverse wound lipstick tube mid pickup, and tele bridge pickup. Individual toggles for each pickup on stainless control panel. Pearl white pickguard. Vintage style bridge with ashtray cover. Grover Minirotomatics with pearl pegs. Jim Dunlop Strap Locks. Nice wide padded Levy leather strap.
HSS strat and a Les Paul
I already have those 2 guitars:
Squier CV thinline. Heavily modified and absolutely perfect for me in every way.
Norman dreadnought acoustic. No mods, because it was perfect when I bought it!
These two guitars would cover pretty much anything I would ever need musically, guitar-wise (other than bass, but that's a different thread).
I'm loving my CV Thinline. Only mod is a 4 way switch.
If it's only two electric guitars - an HSS Strat and a high-end Ibanez HSH.
If it's only two guitars period - an HSS Strat and a high-end Taylor, Santa Cruz, Collings, or Martin acoustic.
I already have mine, my American Tele and my American Strat (HSS). There's a few others that I'd miss on occasion, but realistically I can do almost everything with those two Fenders.
This 1st one (Fender American Deluxe Thinline Telecaster in 3-Color Sunburst) is the tele of my dreams that I recently got & love. It has everything I demanded in my "custom" tele & more. I wasn't gonna go without it being a tele that was made of Ash, was a Thinline & (quite obviously) sounded great. With that checked off, the noiseless pickups & pickup switch option(s) are nice too. The beautiful pickguard, binding & locking case just make it all the sweeter &, therefore, 1 of my 2 pics here.

Of course I'd want not only an SG (like I've had before) but one that was REALLY special. Going thru the Gibson Custom shop for a Maestro Standard Reissue would definitely provide all the "crunch" & divebombing I'd ever need/desire. I haven't yet played a Maestro Standard Reissue or paid that much on 1 Guitar but it would be the SG of my dreams that would easily be my 2nd choice. Check it out!
