If you had to pick three guitars to do "everything" which ones would you pick?

    Fezz, that’s cheating. The OP asks to pick 3. That’s two demerits. One for failing to follow the rule and one for being able to get more sounds out of a Strat than your peers. Shame on you.

    i am of the opinion that you can do everything you need to do with one guitar and some pedals.
    for 15 or so years, rehab was the only electric i had.
    those knobs on your guitar, amp, and pedals are there for a reason.
    except for the bad bob. it only has a "more" knob.

    My peers( people of the same skill) can do the same things I do.;)

    I don't follow rules. You haven't figured that out yet. I march to the beat of my own drum.:D

    The style of music is not dictated by the instrument.

    Steve Howe played progressive rock on an ES175. And a Telecaster.

    Terd Nugget played dude rawk on a Byrdland.

    Ed Bickert played jazz on a Telecaster.

    I could play jazz on a Jackson Shredder.

    So...my post is designed to illustrate a very important aspect of being a musician. The player makes the sound. If you know how to play the style, that's what matters.

    Buying a 175 won't get you jazz.
    Buying a Telecaster won't get you country.
    Buying a shredder won't get you metal.
    Buying a Les Paul won't get you crotch rock.
    Buying a 1275 won't get you Stairway To Heaven or Hotel California.

    :)

    Strat
    Tele with wide range
    Tele with humbuckers
    I should probably disclose that my tele's are thinlines. And I have no desire to play rock of any type. :p

    You speak the truth. I have said this in a couple of other threads and got a lot of arguments.

    In this thread I showed 3 guitars, and honestly, I can play anything I want on any one of them. I just chose those 3 because they are my 3 favorites.

    Agree as well, except maybe needing the acoustic. I do well over 95% of my playing on the one tele and strat though. Plus I like using pedals.. pedals = fun

    Yep.. and I actually prefer the black tubing over the clear. But I don't tell anyone.

    I haven't had an acoustic in years. I never miss it. I never have really enjoyed playing an acoustic.

    I once played a flamenco piece on my archtop...once.

    Never again.

    I love this guitar, its very comfortable, the neck is wonderful, never any issues fantastic quality, not expensive for the quality
    if you want a double cut its a great choice, they also make a Beautiful P-90 Revstar, which if you'd want to another guitar id go for the P-90, seeing as i did not see a Dual P-90 in your stable :)
