    My number one is the '71 influenced partscaster I built, all Fender parts, Squire VM70s body, Fender "F" tuners and neck plate, high mass bridge, one PV string tree with correct nylon spacer, (and in the correct spot! Another nice thing about the replacement necks!) I have a set of PV59 pickups though, and used the eggshell white PV plastic, AVRI guard, PV strap knobs, US jack cup, guts are gavitt wire and O/G switch, .05 dime cap, CTS pots and Switchcrat jack.

    Though a '99 60's Classic Series is been taking it's place a lot lately (probably because it is new LOL)

    Which is stock, except for Fender 62 RI guard, 2 saddle screws and Pure Vintage 60's Vintage White plastic set. Naturaly "relic'ed"..all the nickel has patina'd nicely, as has the finish which has a greenish glow.This thing is seriously killer! Still kinda dialing it in, but it is hard to put down!! (I still need to do a proper NGD!)

    Been playing my tele all week. Just put it in the case to get ready to bring it to my lesson. I still got a few minutes so I grabbed my strat.
    It still feels like home

    I’m really gassing for one of these at the moment... if it had the block inlays it would be the coolest guitar ever...

    One of these. I actually need to split my answer among the situations in which I find myself. Here are my rock n roll, blues bar guitars.The LPMM on the left was prepared by Gibson, Nashville for Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" Tour. I bought it from a Nashville pawn dealer a few days after the tour ended. The one on the right I had ordered from Zzounds a few weeks before I got the Platinum. Both are dandy and the slug P-90s are hot+ but mellow out nicely with a counter-clockwise nudge.

    Nasty, my N225 has bumped my LP custom from #1 for the formal/sit down gigs.
    Traditional P-90 neck and splittable Dirtyfingers+ in the bridge slot.
    Looks equally at home with a formal jacket or black leather.

    At home, no doubt about it, the one next to my recording deck and easy chair is my 03 faded SG, Five Moons.

    Gotta be Lester, my 1975 Les Paul Deluxe, much modified but he has rocked with me for over 40 years now and is still going strong. He is sporting a SD Jazz & a Pearly Gates, with the Jimmy Page wiring that produces a wide range of tones.

    And I've got to show y'all the side of his neck, since in the first pic he still looks rather new. He's not.

    Goes back and forth between my LP's- Classic and Studio. BUT my Strat, once done, could be a hot contender...

    Good to have what you love and love what you have!

    @Biddlin I almost bought an N225 from MF a while back- was an open box deal. Was nervous because of the hollow body (no experience with them) and the body. Would love to hear your take / assessment of it!
