    Which one would you keep?
    Many of us have multiple guitars, but if you were forced by finances to lose them all but one, which one would it be?

    For me, it would be my 60's tribute Les Paul. The tone is just so perfect for whatever I would need to play. And its one of my cheaper guitars:

    Les Paul Traditional
    USA Standard strat
    Custom built Tele
    -many other acoustic, 12 string, misc guitars

    One of my two Strats, it would be hard to choose between the two though!

    Believe it or not, because it is so versatile, my Epiphone ES-339 Ultra. It's my only
    Epiphone - all the rest are Gibson's and Fenders.

    I'd go down to a beaten-up ash-body partsocaster, kinda Soloist-ish in shape. Sheer personal attachment.

    '93 Fender Strat Plus. It can do most anything, really. It's the easiest guitar to play that I've ever owned and I've been through many over the years.
