Come on then, show us the absolute #1 guitar than you own!
« on: January 21, 2009, 10:08:39 PM »
I thought this might make an interesting thread  :)

Some of us own one guitar, some of us several, some of us probably too many *cough*  :roll:

You must have an absolute #1.  One that stands out just that bit more than the others.  You love them all, but there's just something about that one guitar that you can't put your finger on.  It's different, it's got "something".

For me, it's not the one you might think.  I have two clear leaders, and as I'm more of a humbucker man than a single coil man most of the time it boils down to this one.  It's got something in its voice that's more vocal.  It's supremely comfortable to play, it's light, it's resonant.  It was a completely blind on-line purchase that's paid off BIG time - bought because of its looks, I'm equally in love with its tone.  It's completely stock, and it doesn't need any modifications.  It's perfect.

This is Twinfan's #1 guitar.  What's yours?

That's mine.  Granted it's not a nice US model, but suits me fine.  It's a BC Rich Mockingbird NJ Classic.  Nice & heavy, just how I like them.  8)  I've got a set of Cold Sweats in it & it sounds mint.

(I know I'll have to find a better photo of it)

The '57 R.I Custom is my fav... doesn't look quite so tatty now it's been re-finished and I don't have any up to date pics. When I first had it (40th (well 41st,42nd,43rd and so on) birthday present from my better half and boys) I really couldn't get on with it... the neck is big. I even put it up for sale then changed my mind to give it another try. I don't know what happened but suddenly it clicked and now I actually prefer the big neck? The guitar has been beat up, used and abused and damaged... it's just getting better with age. Anyway... here it is...

Oh ok, you've twisted my arm  :)

My B2, as far as I'm concerned no guitar I've come across, ever, has come close to it in any respect.

The SG, it has sentimental value since my grandpa (who has since passed away) helped me pick it and buy it.
I tried to buy a second SG, naive going to a store and trying others, but they didn't play as nicely as this one. Even the salesman in the store where I bought was surprised when he demonstrated it a bit.

Thanks mate! That's not really the my favourite pic, but I've spammed the best pics of it enough on here already.
