We (gf, and I) have a mexi-strat, an Epiphone and Michael Kelly - Les Paul-style copies. A generic Fender acoustic, a Washburn electric (Idol series), and a mexi-Telecaster.
Most of them are out of commish, but that's life.
I usually play the Ephiphone Les knockoff, and she'll play her Michael Kelly (they mainly make mandolins) Les knockoff. She can pull up the volume knobs, and go to a single coil sound, which is handy.
What do you have, and what would you have?
If I had a choice, I'd have my tobacco sunburst Sheraton model Epiphone back. Mother of pearl inlay, semi hollow body (through neck), tone for all day, and pretty low action. 22 frets IIRC.
I sold it, back to the store I got it for (for half as much :(
What I have:
1. A 2011 PRS SE 245 in Scarlet Red, tuned to Open D Minor, modded as follows: Grover 406C Locking Tuners, TUSQ XL Nut PT-6643-00, Pigtail Intonatable Wraparound Bridge, GHS Eric Johnson Signature Nickel Rockers 0.11-0.52 strings.
2. A 2000 Epiphone G-400 Custom, which will soon transform into my Mark I prototype (not to be confused with the iconic Mesa Boogie amp).
3. 2004 G&L S-500 Mahogany Special Build (Tobacco Sunburst, Ebony Fretboard, Tortoise Shell pickguard) in standard tuning, absolutely stock.
What I Want:
1. My Mark II prototype, completed and fully functional.
2. A Chapman Stick, 12 String Grand, in 12 String Classic tuning.
I am looking to sell the PRS and the G&L in order to afford more prototyping. I still love guitar, but it's more important that I find a way to fund the rest of my existence.
Ovation Elite 1768 "German Edition". I've never seen another one of these; it's a limited edition of a model that was discontinued before Fender bought Ovation.
"**** you" in advance to Ovation haters. I'm not a honk for the Ovation brand, but this is a great acoustic that has served me well for several years now.
I also keep an old Martin DXME in open D.
