    I like all my guitars. I can't choose one. I have a primary, or number one, but it is not my only weapon. Can't answer!

    As it should seem obvious to those around here that know me, it's not a guitar!

    My number one go-to is my fretless Clement bass.

    Something magical about it. I can play much better on that one than anything else.

    Sorry, didn't mean to discriminate, NWBasser! Of course any kind of bass is welcome in the poll!

    My Heritage 535 with Duncan Phat Cats is my current go-to six-string but I actually play pedal steel for about 80% of the gigs I do. In that case, my Sierra Crown D-10 is my go-to.

    I keep trying other guitars, but I keep coming back to a Les Paul. Maybe that'll change in the future, but right now that's my weapon of choice.

    Strat, with a humbucker in the bridge, wired for "quack" in positions 2 and 4. In other words, my MIM Standard Strat! It really is incredibly versatile.

    Voted "Other" I keep re igniting my love for my Maton BB1200 every time I start playing it again. I think, at least for this week, semi-hollow's are really my thing.

    My avatar: my Jackson Dinky DK2M. It is the guitar manifestation of Rev. Rawk.

    Can't vote via Tapatalk. N.B. I'm giving a test right now.

    Now that I'm home, I chose "pointy shredder" although I'm not entirely sure that's accurate. Headstock is pointy, but beyond that. . . Prolly a "superstrat" choice would be more appropriate.

    My '94 MiM Squier Series Tele. At rehearsal, it's all I play. I take other guitars too, but I always end up playing that tele. At home I play everything a little bit.

    Damn you Robert. How can you insist on just ONE? I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E!


    How about a Line6 Variax? That should cover everything including banjos.
    Otherwise, it would be a Strat for me (damn you for making me choose just one, arrrgh)

    I voted 335 style although the Yamaha SA2200 should have it's own category

    That would currently be my Hell Zero Dot (Hell, what do you expect?!) . Although 2 weeks ago it would have been the Hell Bender but I'm getting into having a trem model at the moment.

    In case I am perceived to be biased by mentioning my own guitars, then I would have to go with my Gretsch Hot Rod.

    Despite having amassed a versatile quiver of almost all of the above, and others not in the poll -- 12-String Electric, 12-String Acoustic, mando, uke, reso (unless counted as a 'slide' guitar) -- I voted Stratocaster, since my #1 go-to weapon since the day I got it, 9/24/81, is my '81 Fender STRAT, and it always will be.

    Ok, ok. I pick my strat. I have always said it is my number one, and it still is. I still don't want to pick though.

    Currently it's my 1976 Strat. It beats all guitars I have played so far tonewise and the playability is awesome, too. Due to the Hardtail I can get a wide range of sounds, also some twangy Tele stuff, but can also switch into Hendrix & SRV territory within a second.
