That '50s wiring had a tone all its own... thanks for sharing that thought and triggering a great memory for me. (I got to handle a '58 back in the late '60s when a family member had one. I want one so bad now and they are expensive as h*ll, but one of this days... yeah, one of these days.)

2020 Ibanez RG421 w/ Evertune bridge, 2010 Ibanez SA-120 (modded with locking tuners and Seymour Duncan pickups), 2018 Epiphone Les Paul Special, 2019 Yamaha Pacifica 112J, along with several acoustic guitars.

2008 Line 6 POD 2.0, Boss Katana Air, Boss Katana MkII 50-watt.

N-Track 9.1 Digital Audio Workstation software, Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio Gen 3.

Mainly into blues and southern rock, but checking out all styles on GuitarTricks.

This is an old thread... glad Jim picked it up.

Problem for me, is guitars are like girls. As soon as I see a pretty one...haha.

Well, married for 33 years and the one girl that would put up with me has allowed me many fancies from bikes and cars to now guitars.

If I see it and it turns me on, I want it.

PS:

I see that matonanjin2 has Seagull S6 Classic. I have the S6 Slim. Lovely guitars!

And I realized now I said '58 when I meant '59. Gawd... I hate this keyboard. It causes me to make mistakes. ;)

so many to choose from!

Electric

My favorite-G&L ASAT Tribute. I have become a big fan of the MFD pickups and the neck is great! I own this one

S&G (epi and gibson)-love the neck, sold it as I downsized and kept the the G&L

Gretch hollow body (don't own one yet)

Acoustic

Guild

Martin

Godin (Seagull, Art & Luthier)

Acoustic small batch

Iris

Collings

Bourgeois (sp?)

Waterloo

I have downsized to two guitars-the Iris CH and G&L, both are the ones I kept going to, and I needed the space. If I were to buy another guitar-it would be a Martin JR for travel.

I've added two Harley Benton DC Juniors to my collection of guitars (one with standard P90 and a second with a stacked P90) and then just for kicks added an SC Junior as well. Love the sound of these guitars and they feel REALLY good. Ok, yeah, it was an old thread, but I love hearing what other people are playing as well..

Selmer Maccaferri - round sound hole. Just a tad on the expensive side, though

Six strings, but only four fingers. Twelve simi-tones, but only eight notes to an octive. Part of me thinks mathematicians should steer well clear of guitars.....

I have a new favorite guitar.

I played it and it's so perfect that I must buy it in the next month.

I tend to go back and forth. I have a few but love them all. If I had to choose 1 that I own, it would be my PRS single cut McCarty. But I suspect my favorite is the one that I haven't liberated from the guitar store yet. Eyeing a hollowbody PRS that is beautiful.

I'm an older guy and not a very good player (yet) but I love a nice looking guitar that sounds good.
