    You have the following and are very happy:

    EBMM Axis
    Tele
    Strat
    LP
    Super Strat (kind of EVH like)

    You enjoy and play all of them, the Axis is #1. What do you think would be a nice piece to add to the bunch? Curious what ppl here would look at.

    Please note, answers that call for selling or not adding to the arsenal are incorrect.:beer

    Something with P-90s if your LP has humbuckers, (LP special, etc, the Larrivee RS-2 is like a Les Paul Special if you prefer the 25.5" scale length to the Gibson scale length)

    Maybe a hollowbody of some type

    A bass/baritone guitar

    Gretsch. Hollowbody is the obviously missing thing...

    I'd probably get a SG.

    If not an acoustic, then at least a semihollow.

    You might start with a 339 since it is approximately the same size as an LP. 335 type guitars are arguably the most versatile out there.

    Another vote for a 335.

    I personally like to have options when it comes to pickups, so I'd vote something with either P-90s (Gibson LP Special/LP Jr/SG/etc) or something with Filtertrons/TV Jones pickups (Gretsch).

    I have every guitar you listed.. So I just added a Rickenbacker 350 and I am shopping for a Rickenbacker 360.. I used to own a 360 but regrettably sold it years ago..
