    Which of your electrics or acoustics do you NEVER see yourself parting with? What makes it perfect to you?

    Mine is my 2011 American Standard LTD Tele. Something about its collective parts that add up to its mojo. Im a tele guy anyway, but i dont really see how it can get any better.

    This Three Sides Guitars (3SG) 7-string Strat. Just a spectacular guitar that was an extremely generous gift. Don’t see how it could ever be sold.

    My ‘66 Epiphone Cortez and the ‘92 Rickenbacker 360-12 my father bought for me. Those two are off the table.

    My 98 MIK Fender acoustic. It was my first guitar, and the only acoustic I own.
    And probably my Reverend Sensei Junior. Awesome guitar that replaced my Les Pauls and Teles.

    It always changes but right now I don't see myself ever getting rid of my reclaimed CE24 or my custom 24.

    The CE24 was my first PRS and I love the unique top that's on this specific one. It also plays and sounds extremely well and is feather light.

    The custom 24 was my first core PRS and is an odd ball itself with a custom color finish, quilt 10 top, swamp ash body and flamed maple neck. It also sounds and plays amazing and I'm in love with the finish/top.

    NONE are perfect, but because of sentimental reasons there's a few I won't let go of. The Number One right now is a Hamer Chaparral, which is a great guitar, except the neck's too bloody narrow.

    My Takamine (1992) acoustic and my Highway 1 Tele (2003 or 4). Never giving them up for sentimental reasons unless I absolutely have to.

    2014 J45 Custom or my 1952 Harmony Roy Shmeck

    Eastman T185mx, 83 Yamaha SA800 or my K-Line San Bernardino.

    I can't figure out which one is the one.

    Went and hand picked each piece of wood.
    Took the best PRS neck I'd ever feld and had him base the neck shape on it.
    Came out better than I ever dreamed. Hands down best guitar I own, I play better on it. There's a comfort level unexplainable. Just lets me stop thinking and play.
    Flat plays better than any guitar I've ever owned, I've turned down more than twice what I paid for it multiple times.

    My ‘68 Gibson J-50. I will never part with it because well, I’m not allowed to part with it. It was my grandfathers and my parents would murder me. Ive had it for 17 years myself, and it’s a wonderful acoustic.

    This November 1st, The Venerable Black No. 1 turns 32 years old. It's a 1986 MIJ from back when it was still difficult to find an American Strat. I don't play it much anymore as it got a lot of use over many years and needs work done such as re-crowning the frets. The neck, knobs and pickups show their age, but the pickguard is as white as it was three decades ago. Don't know why.
