    Sound , then playability, but the playability has to be up to a certain level or it doesn't matter how good the sound is, because there's something else out there that will play better and sound as good, but if it sounds really nice I'm willing to put up with some difficulty of playing .

    Edit: that's for acoustics. Electrics , maybe the other way around. It's close , either way.
    One should have both sound and feel. Anything less would be uncivilized.

    I think the sound can be changed much easier than the feel, so it needs to feel good first.

    If it does not feel right I can't be bothered! That includes my interest in guitars.

    Partscaster Blackie just happened to feel right and essentially to sound right.

    I can get used to most guitars though I rarely find it feels right for the most part.

    The same holds true with my Jackson Rhoads custom and that felt right at home from day 1. With the right gear it sounds good too.

    Both guitars feels good and has for more than 20 years and still do for me.

    This is so clearly the right answer. If the neck doesn't feel right for you, you won't play as well. Sound is easily changed (pickups are the obvious place to start), but if a guitar isn't comfortable to play, you won't want to play it, or you won't play as well.

    Neck and pick ups.. But neck would be the deal breaker for me.

    Both. There are about 10,000,000 guitars out there for sale; no need to settle on one that doesn't have both.

    I can make almost any guitar sound pleasant enough to be presentable. But a guitar that I bond with has to feel good in my hands. The neck has to be right. The balance has to be good.

    If it doesn't feel right to me, I won't be going to it before one that does. No matter what they sound like.
