    Was thinking about this over the weekend while considering another purchase and then notice the desert island pedal thread today so thought I'd put the question to everyone here.

    Two part question.

    If you could only have 1 guitar and 1 amp today what would it be?
    1. Out of your current line up?
    2. Anything you wanted other then what you have?

    For me it would be:
    1. My 6119SP and JCM800 head and cabinet. Close second would be the Penguin but the 6119 holds more sentimental value to me.

    2. A really good pro Tele and 60's topboost AC30. Would love to say a green double anniversary but hard to beat a tele for versatility.

    How about everyone else?

    If I could only keep one guitar from my current lineup would be have to be my Taylor acoustic because I use it every Sunday. As far as electrics go, my Nashville tele with modded switching and Graphtech acoustic saddles would probably be the one because it can do almost anything and my Hot rod deluxe would be the amp because it’s purple and sounds good.

    As far as dream gear goes, I would have no objection to a 6118 and a Tone King Falcon.

    Probably my G6122-1959 Hall Of Fame edition Country Gent. You can’t get much better than a clone of Chet’s #1.

    I’d keep the ES295 and my Vox AC15...and the pedalboard.

    i’d take a 69 rosewood telecaster And an AC30 if money were no object. Theres a nice one at Chicago Music Exchange for the price of a kidney

    Sorry, I forgot the amp. The Winfield Cyclone would probably be my first choice, followed very closely by the Winfield Tremor.

    if I'm still on this damn island and the choice is my own gear:

    my $80 Squier Tele pawnshop find.. so i could beat the monkeys off without losing tune. And, my Super-Sonic 60.

    if I'm hallucinating.. I'll take a blonde '59 Jazz.. this'll do:

    and a Magnatone TwiLighter 2x12

    1. LDS Falcon in my display pic, and HiWatt DR103 clone. (I have a nice Tele that covers more bases than the Falcon, but the Falcon still wins out)

    2. Probably the same, maybe a non clone HiWatt though. Probably also be happy with a 100w Plexi.

    Agree, that would be a nice only one to have.

    lol, not much a tele can't do and i agree that it would make a good weapon, and a cutting board, as I said Tele's are versatile.
