    and price was not an issue, what would it be?

    I think my answer would be at PRS 513 for its versatility and PRS build quality and feel.

    Probably my SG Standard w/ Maestro. I wouldn't be able to get into single coil territory, which is a shame, but it does most of the stuff I need. I happen to like the sound of humbucker cleans, which are full and midsy. Plus, an SG is so comfortable and playable it would make a great deserted island guitar. (Assuming there was a desert island channel switcher and desert island 120 VAC supply somewhere. Otherwise, I'd want the biggest, lightest guitar I could find so I could float to a place where I could buy an SG.)

    If only one: Tele
    If two: Tele & Strat
    If Three Tele, Strat & Les Paul
    I must have at least these, everything else is optional.

    thats what i have now haha, 52' hot rod tele, 88' american strat, and a 2005 gibson R8 les paul.


    if i could only have 1, it would be the hot rod tele, i feel that can cover the most ground.

    hot rod tele with a hughes and kettner triamp.

    Tough question.

    Tele or a 335.

    If I could have 2, it would be tele + 335, no doubt.

    Man, that's difficult. As much as I love my 335, I just don't play it as much as I used to (at one time it was my main guitar). The Tele and the DL-90 probably see the most gig action these days, but I think I'd have to go Strat style becuase I played one exclusively for the longest period of my gigging time, and still feel totally at home on one. My Tyler classic would be just fine, or maybe a D'Pergo since price is not an issue.

    Strat with a Floyd, humbucker, and two single coils would cover the most ground for me.

    I've got a WW10 Tele that I absolutely love... 1-inch neck going from a V to a C. 6105 frets. Maple and ash... ahhh.

    Nothing that can't be done with a good Strat. Perennially entertaining...

    Tyler SE, no question. But how awful that would be. I'd have to practice instead of post. Hmmm
