    I play acoustic guitars for church and electric guitars for fun and relaxation at home. But I wrote a lot of songs back when I was single and had hours of time to myself to dream up lyrics and melodies. So with this pandemic keeping me at home, I've been working on recording some in GarageBand. As a result, I've gone from:
    A. Which of my guitars are cool and have neat features, fun to just play? to
    B. Which of my guitars can sound good, and blend well, with the tracks I'm recording?

    I'm also having to adjust how I think about tone. Thick, warm, wide (through modulation and reverb) tones sound great on a single guitar, but in a mix it dominates and muddies everything. With that in mind, here's what I've been gravitating toward recently:

    1. Eastman T484 with LollarTrons
    2. PRS S2 Studio (2 D-Type single coils and a split-able humbucker)
    3. Vox SSC-33 with Bootstrap vintage-wind P90s (switching option removes tone pot from circuit)

    These guitars somehow still sound good when panned and EQd, and they still have body in the tone without too much mid-range dominance. That's a very useful balance.

    Fender American Pro Strat, PRS Swamp Ash Special, Martin D 35. Waiting on a PRS Silver Sky which probably will take over for the Strat.
