    I'd actually rather have the 00 or 000 now but 8 years ago I prefered the dreadnaught. Pretty cool! Nice to see somebody else who digs the Faded as much as I do. I actually have a les paul standard as well. Its a different type of sound vs the faded. Its a very dense sound and I guess I just prefer the faded's more airy sounds. If I had to sell one it would definitely be the standard.

    I was stupid and traded it....... PRS DGT Standard in green. Man, that thing had it all..... Now a days.....
    A toss up........ ASAT Classic Blues boy and G&L S 500. Love my PRS Core Single Cut Trem. But not quite as versatile as the other two..

    My '89 Custom Shop Tele. Looks & sounds like Roy Buchanan's "Nancy". It was mint when I bought it on 48st. 25 years ago; now it looks like a heavy relic, but it's an HONEST relic. The closest I will ever come to sounding like Roy or Danny.

    100% this. I think it's honestly why other LP's don't sound quite right to me, because I've had an open/airy one so long.

    2008 Les Paul Standard:
    - Lightweight (7.4 lbs) yet resonant
    - Antiquity and Humbucker from Hell for balanced tone
    - 50's wiring with 500K pots
    - Wrap around tail

    Sounds great, lightweight, and plays great.

    2008 ESP Edwards LP Custom E-LP-113LTC. Replaced the bridge pup with an Oil City 'The Creature', but only because the bridge JB was malfunctioning. Turned out to be a great decision. The best guitar I have ever owned; all the best things about Les Pauls with none of the supposed drawbacks. Bright but never harsh, powerful but never muddy, beautiful sounds in every pickup position - perfect for everything from easy going jangle to teeth clenched hardcore punk/metal. A beast with excellent etiquette.

    In 1992, my dad took me to a music store and let me pick out a guitar for my 15th birthday. I picked this brand new Alpine White Les Paul Studio. I still have it, and the OG Earth III lightning bolt strap (that I got a couple of years earlier) is the only strap that's ever been on it.

    The guitar and amp are both excellent, but so are the decks along the wall.

    This one. 2011 American Standard Strat. It's perfect. It is one of the best guitars I've owned (and I have owned a lot).

    Thanks! I’ve got a wall full of 80’s pro decks signed by the skater. Tony Hawk, Rob Roskopp, etc... My wife is nice enough not to mind them.

    1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard. Bought for me by my dad in 1982, signed by Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1995, played at hundreds upon hundreds of gigs...it sits in the case a lot these days, but it will be with me until I leave this planet.

    I'm not 100% sure what mine is, I've had someone tell me it's a Diamond but that doesn't seem to tie in with the year I bought it used, it might be an N.J but it has no marking saying that, I emailed Neil Moser once & he thought it was maybe a US one made at El Monte so who knows. All I know is it rules. :D

    I'll give up all my electric guitars before I give up my Reverend Kingbolt RA.

    In the acoustic category, I don't want to ever be without a spanish-style guitar, but the specific one doesn't matter so much.

    I can't really limit it to 1. These I'm pretty sure I keep for good.
