    Thank you for all that work. I was planning on doing it, but you saved me.

    I would agree that the preponderance of Gretsch guitars with Fender second is not surprising. Nor is the majority Fender amps.

    What I did find interesting is that for not a few, their choice was not the most expensive guitar. Electros, Squiers, Epis are there.

    Tavo does rule though.

    If it has to be what I already own it would be:
    Peavy Ecoustic 112
    Boss ME80

    If I don't have to already own them:

    I want my 1955 6120 back

    One of these

    And I guess I'' keep my Boss ME-80 cuz it does a lot of things (just none very well) and I don't know what the Brain hoopla is all about.

    I've posted this pic before around here, and it's still my favorite combination.

    Not into pedals, so I guess that my old reverb tank will be the pedal choice.

    My 6120, Cave Valley Plexi Head, and my Vox cab with a Celestion Gold, are really "it" for me. Just so fun to play and has some great tones.

    I feel very lucky to have these.

    Guitar would be my 5420, naturally. Pedal would probably be my Old Blood Noise Endeavors Dweller, because it can do so so so many atmospheric sounds. And one amp is already one more than I have now, so I don't really know.

    And the Vox AC15C1 03669F8F-C46D-471E-A0AE-8705C6854003.jpeg The MXR carbon copy
    Basically all the classics. So without wishing to upset the good doctor I also commend beer 9D94B972-AA58-4E0A-8A32-B87A7084A640.jpeg
    And biscuits (cookies?) - dark chocolate in my house

    6120de, trio 2 for the pedal and my digitech rp360xp in place of an amp, condo bedroom picking demands headphones. One of the many subtle advantages is having 2 loopers to play with.

    Thank you sir. I was on a vintage quilted top hunt for decades, with luck/timing/funds never working out.

    When I spotted this one, it came home quickly.

    The top is just icing on the cake to me. This is the best playing/feeling/sounding guitar that I've ever been around or owned.

    I just feel blessed being able to be its' keeper while I'm alive.

    When I first saw that picture, I thought it was James Taylor.

    I noticed that as well. My choice was my least expensive Gretsch. It just sounds amazing.

    Wow this is tough. I mean I have a lot of guitars, precisely because I love them (certainly not because I deserve them!). But to choose just one of each, and from my current collection? It would have to be a Strat (as much as I love my Gretsches, and my Gibsons).

    So, Roadworn 60s Stratocaster, Deluxe Reverb Reissue and TS9 Tube Screamer (I have a vintage one, my newer TS808 Tube Screamer would be an acceptable alternative).

    Second choice? Probably my RHH 6120, such a fantastic guitar. And Mystery Brain, it does what it does so well. Bassman Reissue Ltd. amp. Or Vox AC15 C1 TV. Or... and then there's the Les Pauls, the Gretsch Anniversay, the gorgeous and perfect feeling 6129 Silver Jet... argh! So hard to choose. But I did, top of my post. So glad I don't really have to though!
