    Rickenbacker and Gretsch.

    Unless you are talking about acoustics, then it's Martin and Gibson.

    Gibson, well, and Gretsch here. I can't get any love from a Fender.

    Gotta agree with Martin on the acoustic front.

    Gibson. I'll own another Tele at some point in my life, but it's not a burning desire at the moment.

    Oh, and Mac, of course.

    Although I started playing electric guitar in the early 60's in Fullerton/Anaheim California and played Fenders then, I never owned one! Back then they were fun, but really noisy and quirky, to find one that played in tune and didn't attract every radio station within 200 miles!

    I own 2 Gibsons - a hot-rodded, neutered 345 ('74) and a stock '67 175... in 2006, I bought a Taylor T-5 which I adore!!! It makes a very nice tele bridge and 'board p'up tone, as well as a decent Gretsch rhythm sound, along with 'bucker tones, all in a 5# package!

    I must admit, however, that I've always kinda lusted after a good Telecaster...

    I will have to say Gibson. But, for some strange reason, I have been intrigued by the Eric Johnson Stratocaster lately!!!!

    A dealer friend of mine described the EJ Strat as "A Strat for Gibson players." Hmmm...

    As for the OP: FALSE DUALITY ALERT!!!!

    PersonallY:
    I play guitars.
    I use computers.
    I am mostly "brand (or platform) agnostic."

    I'm pretty much a Fender-guy, but I'm Gibson-curious.
