When you think about or imagine BLUES, what guitar immediately comes to mind?
Acoustic - electricity could be an issue
Didn't we just have a similar thread last week?
Anyway, I voted "other" because I don't think there is an archetypal blues guitar. I think any guitar can be used for anything you want to use it for. And I don't think of any particular guitar when I think of "blues" (quotations, because there are just about an infinite variety of blues styles), because I have seen "blues" played on just about everything.
It is the player, not the gear.
Playing the guitar association game in my head it’s probably a 335 or a les Paul.
But I agree with @Ebidis
I’m the lead guitar player in a blues band and I play a sparkly blue jazzmaster.
I think of Robben Ford’s Epiphone.
So you play jazzy sparkly blues?
The worst guitars imaginable.
I voted for the Strat, because that is what I use for blues
the one in your hands. It's just not that hard......
When I think Delta Blues I think acoustic .
Hollow or semi-hollow...or whatever you have.
That wasn’t the question.
Out of mine I'd say this one. It's my most versatile guitar
I voted Stratocaster because some of my electric blues heroes played them like Buddy Guy, Pee Wee Crayton & Guitar Slim. Not to mention Jimmie Vaughan.
My second choice would be a Telecaster because of Albert Collins. I've owned an Epi Dot 335 and for me (I'm a small person) most hollow and semi hollow body guitars are too big and awkward for me to play.
Either one of these two...
Have you tried a 339 ? The 335 little brother. About the size of a LP
Ohhhh look at us gettin all fancy with the words.!!!
