What is the most humble member of your guitar collection?

You could take this a few ways...
a) What is your cheapo banger that just hangs on in the collection?
b) What is the "forgetable" guitar that you just keep coming back to?
c) What is just not even worth selling?

For my part, I have a 80's Cort Strat copy that I kid you not sounds every bit as good as any other Strat I have ever owned. It is Dakota Red and does not fully look the part, but that thing has some serious "quack" in the notch positions...and the neck pickup is so nice and fat and punchy.

Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker.
Looks like it was painted by hand with a brush.
Single P90 and a wrap tail bridge.....and will rip anyone a new butthole....killer little throw around.

I would have to say that my very first guitar is my most humble, which is an Ibanez RG in black with a set of EMG's. I learned many a song and technique on it. It doesn't fit my playing style these days, but it has more sentimental value than anything and I love it and will never get rid of it.

the one that started it all, my mom's 60s Sekora parlor, worst piece of crap ever but it's the one I learned on and my mom still has it. It's horrible. used to tune up that one string missing a tuner button via pliers, but now all the teeth on the gears are worn so they slip and won't turn without popping and loosening up.

I picked up this SX LP special copy for something like $130. Nice fat set neck, great frets, snarly P-90s, and YELLOW! what's not to like?

I couldn't get $800 for this pair of guitars guitars but I've made much of my favorite music with them. I love them and even if I wanted to sell them it would make no sense. :)

Burny Les Paul jr copy. "Rock 'n Roll Version"
beat up, aged white, Set neck with one Lollar P-90. I occasionally think about selling it, but for the 300-400$ I would get for it, I just can't do it.

My Strat. Squier Vintage Modified SSS Strat, Clapton electronics, aged parts, plays like a dream. Everyone tells me to "get a real Fender and sell that Strat. People will respect you more if you play a Fender". I say BULLS***!!!!!! The thing sounds better than any American Strat I've played.

Cort Nylon currently at my parents' place.
Most played guitar in my collection as I'm there almost everyday with spare hours. Nylons last longer than steel. Corrosion free.;)

I picked up a Kimberly branded Hummingbird copy for about $100. F'n amazing. Think it was made by Teisco in the late 60s/early 70s. So many songs in that guitar...

My first guitar, a 60s Teisco I bought from a flea market in the late 80s. The guy threw it in for free when I bought a table and a lamp for $90. Still plays fine and has a certain trash-tone charm. A few years ago I picked up the 12-string version for $125. That one is a little tough to play.

My highway one strat, blonde nitro paint, big head stock, rosewood board and custom shop '54 pickups. Got around $600 in it. Not exactly the definition of "el cheapo" but it feels and sounds exactly the way I like. It vibrates when I play and fits me like a glove. It plays better than I do. The one guitar I will never get rid of. Excuse me, must go play...

As soon as I saw this thread my '60s Tribute Les Paul came to mind. It's such a straight-forward guitar that it doesn't stand out sitting on the rack. I've considered selling it off several times in bouts of gas attacks but then I pick it up and fall in love with it all over again. This guitar never fails to deliver. My guess is that it would get played more if I put a set of 11's on it.

All my are pretty humble. 2 MJTs, a Telecaster and a Telemaster, and a MIM Strat. All are quite playable. I'm not one for fancy guitars.
