Oh wow, loving that black custom!
I only have 4, so this was pretty easy... until I had to pick the third.
Gretsch Streamliner 2655T (no question at all, my favorite of the 4)
Fender Sonoran Acoustic
I just can't pick the third because I like both of these guitars equally. My Takamine GS330S is one with a cedar top and my Gretsch 5120 is just a cool guitar, both with their own unique sound. So I guess I'll just pick two for now!
Ugh. Only top 3? Well... in a way to be fair I'll do top guitar of the brands I own...
Gretsch: G7593 Falcon
Ibanez: IC-400 Iceman w/ custom broken mirror topped
Jackson/BC Rich: Jackson KV2 King V USA
My three favourites at the moment are (probably also in this order):
Gretsch Midnight Sapphire Penguin,
Gretsch Red Sparkle Duo Jet,
Gibson 1934 L5 reissue.
haha....I have a 2016 Firebird T in Sunburst....I have tried to sell it a couple of times and couldn't bring myself to do it.
Every time that I pick it up I fall in love with it again.
There's something about how it just feels so easy for me to play....and bending strings and sustain are the best of any of my guitars.
I just have to resolve myself to the fact that despite being pretty much a single coil guy, I'll never part with the mini-humbuckers in this guitar...
The three I can't imagine selling... L-R Brian Moore 8.13, Gretsch Billy Bo, Steinberger Spirit.
The only two instruments that might shake one of these off the tree are either a Falcon or Anni Jr (a real Jr that is), or a Hofner John Stowell. Otherwise these three are here to stay.
Tough one, hmm......
I don't own a lot of guitars these days, but my top 3;
1A - '78 ES355
1B - Panther
2 - Reverend PA-1
Glad to see that PA-1, still in the top 3......they really are..THAT GOOD!!!
It's not really a pain per se. Just more of a pain. Usually I take two guitars and put 'em both in a Mono M80 dual gig bag. I put the gig bag on my back, my pedalboard on top of my rolling amp case, and thence from the truck to the club (in downtown Austin that might be a ways). With the Duffy, I've got to manage that - plus what amounts to a small cello. Makes the trip more interesting.
In consequence, the Duffy quit going to downtown gigs. Gigs where we bring our own PA, lights, etc. the Duffy's more likely to come along.
Is that a Flying V doing the splits?
Wow, that third one is truly a pointy guitar.
I can see why that's your favorite. Stunning guitar!
How on earth can anyone choose between two Martins?
Fed up with these Chinese interruptions. Not even sure that this post is going anywhere.
Yup. I'd have to agree with your Tele selection.
But that only applies to the electric side of things. And it doesn't do much to help me having to pick between two Teles and a Strat.
Now, what about acoustics. It's just impossible to make a choice.
Thank Christ I'm seventy. So I won't have to worry about it for too long.
But wait, that means I'm running out of time.
The amps in this picture have all gone away, but the guitars still hold up
Love that Billy Bo
This one is climbing the ranks quickly....I cant believe how much I LOVE this Streamliner...This thing does not go out of tune, sounds wonderful acoustically and the BroadTrons are thick and beefy......and the sustain is friggin' amazing....
I keep thinking about what Gretsch I would want next, but so far this one has been my favorite....did I just get a really good one?
Thanks, it's so easy to play!... helps make up for my inadequacies ;-)
