So, my favorite guitar to play, at the moment, often seems to be the last one I played. That's the case with this Ibanez AM93. I pulled it out of it's case yesterday and fell in love all over again. Such amazing clarity from the bass through the treble in the Super 58's! I played a range of songs and remembered just how versatile this guitar can be. It looks great, feels good, and sounds great. It's performance yesterday earned it extended playing time. Of my Strats, this one is definitely my favorite. I played it a couple of days ago, and and had such a good time I had to sneak another peak inside to see if there was anything I might have missed before that could tell me why it sounds so amazing. I still can't come up with anything definite, but I did notice that the pole pieces on the pickups seem to be following the neck's approximate radius. I have read that this might be a good thing to do, so maybe that's it. I do know that someone else gave up on it, because I got it used, so maybe it's just my individual ears. In any case, this one's a heavy favorite whenever I want to play a Strat. Then there's the 2011 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose. I've never pulled this one out of it's case, and wished I had I had gotten out a different guitar. The feel of the neck, the look, and the buttery sound really makes this guitar a favorite. Again, I got this used, so someone else didn't agree with me, but I can say that if I am ever downsizing again - and that won't be any time soon - the Tennessee Rose definitely stays.
