If you could own just ONE GUITAR, what would it be?

Postby MudcatMatt » Tue Nov 27, 2007 7:21 am

If you had to choose only one guitar to keep and play, one that would serve you well in any and every musical style or situation you could possibly find yourself in, what guitar would you choose? What kind of features and mods would it have in order to meet your needs, and why?

What would be your ultimate ONE guitar?

My Taylor 612CE.
Plays like Butter, sounds like a Dream.

My Tele. It already is that one guitar 8) (my one and only). American made no frills, does everything I ask it to and just feels right.

electric or acoustic? Hard to choose

I'm down to two:

Fender Strat or Gibson L1

probably the L1 if I could only have one

I'd like one of those $50,000 vintage Les Pauls, so I could sell it and buy tons of harmonicas and amps. :)

Dude, already have it. 78' LP Pro with P90's. Leftover solid mahogany bodies from LP Classics. Mine plays and sounds like sex. But I will second another guitar...the V I am currently playing. I will take either....or a National O...I'm so confused..Cheers, TB.

One of those 1959 Les Paul Standards. If they ever made any left handed.

One guitar I played recently and fell in love with was the Martin HD-28. Absolutely amazingly wonderful in every aspect. So maybe I'd have one of those.

If I could only have ONE . . .

it would have to be my Gretsch 6120 SSLTM. It was used as the main road tool of a pretty prominent, hard touring rockabilly cat before I got hold of it . . so it's very broken in and comfortable as an old pair of jeans, plays and sounds like a wet dream and has genuine road-worn mojo out the a**. It doesn't get any better.

Definitely my Tele. I just can't top that guitar. Actually...as long as I own one Tele I'll be happy.

Acoustically I'd really like to own a National.

Good choice. I used to go to Bluegrass festivals and a lot of pickers always used their old D-28s. I've never heard one that didn't sound amazing.

I think I'd be happy with an old SG Junior (with the small pick guard). A single P-90, a nice JTM-45, a Premier 90 Reverb and my soon-to-be-completed Triple Batch of @$$Kick boost pedal would keep me entertained for an eternity.

-edit-
The booster is now complete. :D See my new thread if you're curious.

Hard to tell if the picture I posted came up or not; my venerable Gibson L-oo. Nicest sounding flat top I've ever heard.
