POLL, What type electric you prefer…

Can't figure out what I really prefer
OK, I'm not alone. What sound really suites you, hollow, semi or solid?
Humbuckers, or single coils.
You'll have to choose only one. You;ll have to post what your second choice or qualifiers are.
Thanks! Bill

Strats and Teles all the way.

Kind of odd, but I really don't care for humbucker guitars anymore... and my favorite guitar players pretty much exclusively play humbucker guitars.

Kind of a hard question to answer
after all I own a 335 and love it
but my other 4 guitars are all single coil, and I love the P90 the best
I have a tele with 2 P90s I built that I can get to Bark or sing that is my go to guitar

so I had to say solid singles

My preference is any electric that is plugged in, turned up and tuned to Open G.

Over the years I have mainly used electric guitars as a solution to one musical situation - working with a bassist and a drummer with possible additional musicians (generally a Harp, another guitar and maybe a keyboard)

For that particular boat, I like a paddle. A Fender Telecaster is the guitar of choice, and my consistent favorite "Other electric guitar" has, for a long time, been a mahogany body/neck Gibson of moderate means with a p-90. These go into a two speaker Fender Amp.

Currently I have a well maintained but barely broken in Fender Vibroluxe Reverb Amp, a turquoise '98 Tele and a '64 Melody Maker with an after market p-90 that sit on a stand on display next to hard worked sweat burnished acoustics.

I am a tele guy-( even tho I find Gibsons much easier to play ) 2nd place for me is a Les Paul Jr

Right now must of my electric playing is on a Japanese Squier Bullet ( tele neck on strat body ) and a Peavey 12 string that I play as a 10 string in single coil mode

Generally I prefer humbuckers, but enjoy my single coil guitars too. Big neck, biggish strings, low output pickups and a decent amp. Done.
