Well, considering my #1 is a nocaster type, I guess that answers that.............................
A 1990's Gibson SG Special that's equipped for battle!
I like my Harley Benton Gretsch type homebody..Looks and plays great for 220
I like more guitars than I don't, so I could list a lot of guitars I like and have and play. Noteworthy models that don't do it for me are Les Pauls, Teles other than Thinlines, and Rickenbackers. For purposes of this discussion, I think the Gretsch Jet is a heck of a guitar. Kind of under the radar for a lot of players.
Another PRS lover here. Got my first (and favorite) nearly 34 years ago.
It blew my mind at the time; still puts a grin on my face today.
Here's a post I wrote coupla years ago on the PRS forum.
When did you first hear about PRS and what made you want to own one?
Midnight Angel. Not fancy to look at but man, does she sing.
Several things I love about PRS core models, beyond great sound that is:
Great wood - most feel very lively in your hands; at volume they come they alive quite early.
24" scale length - more elastic than Fenders, a little crisper & punchier than Gibsons.
Neck carves - I have several different PRS profiles; for my hand every one of them feels perfect.
Neck joints - they're all long tenon necks, even the bolt-ons. Only learned about that recently.
PRS necks hardly ever require attention- my '87 hasn't needed any adjustments in decades.
Good quality hardware throughout, never have to upgrade tuners, bridges, strap buttons, etc.
Perfect knife edge trem - super smooth & precise, no tuning issues, no PITA locking hardware.
I've acquired a number of PRSs over the years.
'97 CE22. This one's named Aquamarine Spitfire, after its personality and color.
20th Anniversary Custom 22. Pretty orange top and swirly Anni inlays. I call her Oriole.
'06 McCarty with 57/08 pickups. Named her Lilith - she's seductive and addictive
'07 McCarty Korina/Brazilian. One of a few made using 50-year-old rosewood Paul got from CF Martin. These were held back for years, finally sold as NOS in 2015, marked For US Only.
'09 Starla. "Kinghawk" - a great blues guitar with thick neck and a bit of Gretsch in its voice.
'011 DGT. Cool & unique neck, custom pickups, 10-top. Named TigerEye for obvious reasons.
Cool collection of PRS guitars.
The one that's currently suffering under my hands.
And then, this one
I see that big tablet you used to take the pic!What brand of guitar is that?
I'm still trying to figure out the answer to that question.
Tough to say which is my favorite non-strat, but I've been liking my 71' Hirade a lot lately.
That is a beautiful Tele! What year is it?
Thanks. It's a 2012. I bought that one because they had a belly cut in that specific year. It's very confortable to play.
I know, I tried to find a used one but could not (wanted a rosewood neck, and a solid color... Stupid...), the prices were out of this world when I was shopping last summer. Bought a new Telecaster Professional, beautiful guitar, sounds wonderful, but very uncomfortable to play after 13 years on a Strat. I like the belly cut but of course the Pros don't have it. Just not bonding with it...
I purchased a G&L Tribute about a year ago and it plays as good as if not better than my new Fender Telecaster at 4 times the price. Also own MIM Fender Strat that plays great , as well as, my original Gibson Firebird from 1963
Probably Gretsch guitars...followed by Telecasters.
Hi Dude, I have both strat and tele (with gold hardware) I like the tele because the sound from the gold hardware really resonates around the room. As for a different guitar, I have on order; Shecter Blackjack Solo 2 in gloss black and all stainless gear. I'll post s pic ofit when it arrives in March.
My favorite non Strat is this Gibson ES339.
