    Back when I was in my home country (Philippines), the guitar I've always relied on and never failed me is my partscaster thinline tele.. It was my first time to assemble such a guitar from parts I got from ebay for cheaps.. (except the pickups which I bought bnew, AV62)

    I used this guitar for everything, and through whatever amp, tube/SS, at home, studio, big outdoor events, small camps, in worship service in church centers.. its the telecaster I severely miss.. I thought about bringing it with me here in Oz, but with the growing expenses of moving, and also trying to pay for my dog's move, I had to sell it, along with a bunch of other guitars.

    If there's a Telecaster thats been perfect since Day 1 its this one..

    Squier vintage modified thinline body
    Fender Standard MIM neck
    Gold Hardwares
    AV62 pickups

    My beautiful old 1973 Strat. I bought her new and she's been with me since. Survived gigs all over the map, been through three marriages and a few kids and dogs. For many years she was the only electric guitar I owned and never once let me down.

    She's the one.

    Has always been my 1978 355 Gibson. My Panther holds its own well against the Gibby in reliability.

    I tune my Duesenberg Star Player once a month- wether it needs it or not.
    But seriously, I’ve never had a guitar so stable and reliable.

    Sadly I had to sell it, but my most reliable guitar was my vintage Steinberger GM.
    Indestructible, always in tune and super-servicable (when ever needed). The Trans-Trem was a thing of beauty and you could always lock it when a string should break (what rarely happened).
    I had the "most reliable price-developement" of all my guitars, btw.. Always going up and selling for double the price that I originally paid for it.

    I’ve worn out my old black Strat so it’s become this CV Squier Telecaster. Here she is with her brand new baby sister the CV Stratocaster.
