    You are stranded on a desert island and somehow have the luxury of having...
    a)a single guitar
    b)a single amp

    no pedals, no double neck guitars

    What would you prefer to be stuck playing for a few years until you are rescued?

    Give me a good hot vintage style tele and some sort of bluesbreaker

    I'm on a deserted island, that baby is getting dimed

    Deserted islands often lack electricity.

    My Union Jack 45 and Gerlitz cab with my assembled tele.

    If it has to be a combo I'll take a Super Six. Not like I've got to move it or anything. Lol

    :agree
    This would be the poison I would pick as well. You might be able to make some glass out of all of that sand with a Fender Twin.

    Well, give me a nice loud amp, but one that I can still carry in case I wanna get away from the high tide.

    60s Tele
    BF Vibrolux

    Can we get a 4-track as part of this island deal?

    I can only go from experience so I'd have to go with the guitar and amp in my signature. That's my desert island combination. I might substitute my ENG Rocco for the Volcano once the former gets the Railhammer treatment but I can't imagine wanting any other amp except maybe a VT-22 (for maximum distress call volume).

    I don't think i'd want to play electric guitar all by myself on a desert island.

    I'll take my Rainsong carbon fibre acoustic. no worries about warping, bloating or cracking.

    amp? can I trade that for a case of elixir strings? :rotflmao

    Suhr Pro M8 and a Swart AST Pro. Have both. You got tremelo, reverb, hi and lo inputs, can do clean to mean and just about the best playing guitar I have ever touched.
