    You have just been told that you got a gig that pays $10 million per year but there’s a catch. You have to live on a deserted island playing music three days per week for a rich Middle Eastern Prince and his family. To make things worse you can only take one brand of electric guitar, although the Prince will get as many guitars as you like as long as it is from that brand. You will be playing all types of music. Which brand do you choose?

    (Kind of ridiculous I know)

    Reverend. They're the one brand with the most models that I like straight off the rack, without having to modify them.

    Gibson. I'm a fan. Wish I understood what the bashing is about.

    PRS. Even if it's just production models, I'd be more than happy with whats available (CU22, 594, 509, Piezo models), but on top of that, older stuff like the 305 and the fact that Private Stock will literally build anything and I don't have to pay for it? Gibson and Fender just can't keep up with unlimited funds and PRS.

    I get people saying Fender, but realistically, how many people would just play a Tele, and Strat?

    Have to agree with PRS. Never played a Fender that could sound like a Gibson, never played a Gibson that could sound like a Tele or Strat. One DGT can cover them all...

    G&L or Ernie Ball Music Man. I love several guitars and basses from their line and I've never played a bad one.

    Fenders feel like home to me. Like an old worn in shoe.

    This may sound crazy, but I'd go with First Act then have him buy me every custom shop model that comes up for sale.

    Fender. My humbucker tones don't necessarily have to be in the Gibson realm, but I need that Fender single coil sound.

    I do love my Les Paul but if its a desert island, but I'm going with Fender.

    Tele, Tele with P-90's, Tele with a Charlie Christian in the neck, Strat, HSS Strat, Jazzmaster, Jaguar, and a Mustang.

    That's easy - Suhr. They make a killer tele (classic T), strat (classic) , super strat (standard), single cut (Aura), and shredtastic plank (Modern). Plus @Husky has a full custom shop to build you anything else you might want. What else do ya need?!?!
