    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.

    Probably due the novelty factor, as it's the most recent into the house...

    I've really been getting into my 2017 Gibson ES-335 Studio lately. It just sounds so good with the DRRI.. Such a versatile guitar.

    Quarantine + nice weather = apartment windows open all day long.
    Then I don't plug the electric ones and only play my Washburn D10CE:

    I’ve been working from home for the last 3,5 weeks and will continue to do so for at least another 3,5 weeks more. I’m quite lucky that, for a limited time, I don’t need much more than my laptop and an internet connection to do my job.
    I get easily distracted, but don’t have time to go to my music room between calls, e-mails and online meetings. I do noodle a lot with my acoustic on my couch though.
    So, my favourite guitar at the moment is my Martin 000-18. Well, I’m not sure it’s my favourite, but definitely the most played at the moment. Today: Where is my mind - Pixies.

    Favorite guitar at the moment is my only Gretsch (and only electric): G6620T Nashville Center Block Double Cut. It's not an exaggeration to say that it's transformed my playing. It's that great semi-acoustic sound...

    New Toy.jpg My chambered Cozart Strat. I added a cheap set of rail pups wired front to back position M-MN-N-NB-B. Had my guitar guy dress the frets. Paid $125 for the guitar. Mostly the Strat as I have a frozen shoulder that prevents me from playing a heavier guitar. I play it through a Ric TR-25 amp. Closest amp to a Fender Princeton. Sometimes my Beatle collection Beatle Guitar Collection.jpg

    Having purchased 6 new guitars for myself since September, 4 Gretsch & 2 Squiers, I'm switching guitars all the time. No favorites at the moment, they all produce unique sounds that's what I bought them for.

    I don't play her often, but took her out a week ago, and enjoying her majestic presence, tone and rubenesque body. (Pretty much the dimensions of a Falcon.)
