    If you could have an electric or acoustic, not on a desert island but in your house what would it be. I am curious to see what the consensus would be. I love playing my electric but there are times when you are alone with a mic and he acoustic just sounds perfect on a good song.
    I would probably pick my Taylor 310ce.

    My wife says when the "whole world craps out", I can only use an acoustic.
    I say I can quietly play a Strat and they never find me....LOL!

    I love my Martin and waited oh so long for it but I would have to go electric.

    My 07 Standard LP. (you know the one with the "crappy stock Burst Buckers, low quality control, and horrible chambered body which can't sustain past a 32nd note"? Yep, that one)

    It's just the one. I always wanted a Standard, really don't want to play any of my others now that I have it, and am as thrilled with the looks as I am with the tone and playability (60's thin necks are just right for me). As you can clearly see, it's perfect. :banana (This is our saturday night gig at my daughter's HS graduation party. LP in the back yard, LP in the back yard!!)

    That's a tough one, but I'd have to go with my Gatton sig Tele. A Grissom sig PRS is coming later this month though, so a battle of the sigs may be in order before a final decision is made.

    If amplification was still an option, it'd be my '53 ES-175.

    If unplugged was the only way to go, it would be my '56 LG-2.

    No doubt a Tele. Which one.........that's gonna take some thinking.

    Since I could only have one guitar it would have a Splittable Neck Humbucker, a strat single coil in the middle, and a broadcaster type Tele in the bridge with a 5 way switch and a Push Pull on the Volume knob for the Humbucker to split. Swamp Ash Body . Maple neck and Fret board. [​IMG]
