    Original stock golds. Only change I've made was to remove the tremsetter.

    Yo,

    Yes, for sure I could. My Strat-Plus was my only electric for 15+ years before I got the family started...

    However, all of them get treated equally, so it would not be possible to contemplate picking-one-out...An out-of-your-hands circumstance or act-of-God would be where I'd have to count my losses.

    I'd rather lose them all & start all over again I think.

    And even if that happened, & I found myself broke too, it would be no-time-at-all before I'd pull-the-money-together to start over.

    And since the Epiphone SG's are fantastic playing & sounding guitars -( when plugged in...), I'd be playing again the following day since they are probably the best buy for your dollars in the market IMO, & where I'd start first with no regrets. Then I'd save for another Classic Series 1970's re-issue. These are the ones for me too.

    Ciao,

    Rastus

    I could survive just fine with one good strat and one acoustic.... I could, but fortunately I don't have to.

    Well, I wouldn't want to but if I HAD to, I would keep my R8. Best Custom I've ever had and much easier to play than my Fenders which are all 7.25 radius.

    My telecaster.

    It makes rock better than the strats.
    It makes funk better than the les pauls.
    It makes blues just fine too.
    It cuts trough any mix.
    Looks road worn... by me.
    Its a classic, simple and effective.

    i could probably cut down to just my .strandberg* Boden OS 8 with the Lace Aluma X-bars,
    and either my Squier VM fretless Jazz Bass or my JB62SS (MIJ short scale Jazz Bass).
    Luckily, i don't have any reason to at this point... :)

    My American std strat with rosewood fretboard and Lollar pickups. I still “need” my other guitar but I could live with just that strat.

    Here
    Been travelling a bit lately and my main loves are in storage. I sat down about a year ago and put together a partsocaster that would keep me pretty happy in every way, and which would stay in tune and feel good with minimal requirement for setups.

    Alder MIM body in CAR; Gotoh Floyd and locking nut; 2x 90s AmStd pickups and a SD JB Jr; master vol, master tone, series-parallel rotary switch; chunky C USACG neck with a 16" radius and stainless steel frets.

    Never needs tweaking. Stays in tune. Has the playability of a speed machine but somehow retains the utilitarian clunkiness of a good Strat. Happy.

    @Ebidis has a good eye, it is indeed a Gibson ES 175.

    If I had to be forced to one guitar (man, that’s like sleeping with the same woman in the missionary position only for the rest of your life. Who does that?) it’s be a strat. Hardtail. Not sure about pickups, though. Probably Texas Special. Rosewood fretboard.

    A very nice one too. I prefer the natural finish over the sunburst on the 175's, and yours is a beauty with a bit of flame on the top.
