    A good 335-style guitar, and a good 6L6 amp -- probably a Mesa, for reliability as much as anything else.

    A 200w Marshall Major double stack (or quadruple stack) would be handy. It could double as furniture, communications or a self defence system.

    As for guitar, a Strat of sons kind - but I’d probably prefer take the opportunity to learn sax instead. A Selmer MkVI maybe.

    I’ll take a pre-CBS Jazzmaster and a Deluxe Reverb.

    Les Paul, probably LPC. With coil splits/out of phase options.

    Matchless Independence or Diezel VH4 or Friedman BE-100 Deluxe or something similar...versatile & touch sensitive. I'd love a Tone King Imperial but with no pedals I need more gain.

    4x12 full stack.

    Stratocaster and a Princeton Reverb, although there'd be no neighbors to annoy with a louder amp like a Twin Reverb, and it might help me alert a passing ship, so I would consider that.

    You probably would never have to move that DP on a desert island, good thing 'cause it feels like it is bolted to the bedrock most days.

    I'd be happy enough with my Forshage Orion and Lil Dawgs Tweed Deluxe amp.

    Of course, one might ask where electricity is coming from on a desert island.

    Any guitar provided I have s few packs of strings.


    And I know this is a controversial decision but I’d take either a Boss Katana Artist or a Line 6 Spider 120v or something similar that has built in effects.
