    Any brand, any model, any year, any price level, bone stock or with mods.

    What one guitar of yours, just always plays right, sounds right, and just feels right, every single time you pick it up?

    The one that just makes you shake your head and go, WOW.

    I'm fortunate and have a couple like this, but this one is my head shaker.

    '07 6122-58 Gent that I've had about 10 years now. I traded a DuoJet straight across for it, and it just never disappoints.

    What's yours?

    I guess it would have to be this one....

    A slightly modified streamliner 2420 with alameda pickups. With the selectable pickups I can get any sound I want out of it. I never have to tweak and adjust anything. Just plug and play all day.

    My "go to" lately has been my 2017 ES-335 Studio. I can't believe how much I like this guitar. Never disappoints when I pick it up. So versatile, and always sounds great.

    8736E0BD-F6A4-40E8-91D6-7B9FCAD6914B.jpeg It’s still this one. The Wariner sort of bullied it’s way into second place, but the Les Paul is still #1.

    My Brown Bear Cabronita has been my mainstay.

    looks like my new Anni might give the Bear a shake

    Either of these two, both have roasted maple Warmoth necks with SS frets, 1-3/4" nuts, and fat profiles (fatback on the black one, boatneck on the white).
    The black one has great Dynasonic-style pickups from Gabojo, that work for almost everything I play, and the Moslike trem works really well. The white one is super-light (pine body), and has a very spanky, twangy broadcaster-style pickup, and a P90 that can be warm and jazzy, but still doesn't get too dark (both both Q Pickups in Croatia).
