    I know it’s socially forbidden to pick out a favorite child, but I have to admit a partsocaster Tele I assembled 10 or so years ago is still my favorite accomplice for various music crimes.

    As far as my PRS stable, I’d have to admit my Paul’s Guitar has a neck that just is the perfect carve for me.

    Anything I play sounds like me pretty quickly with a couple amp tweaks.

    My S2 Standard 22 gets the most love these days, just set up well and finding it inspiring to play, I tried the single coil thing and while I see its value as a pickup Im a bucker guy 90 percent of the time...

    I had dozens of ''collectors'' guitars - but since 1996 it's just ONE left - my 1991 PRS Custom 24 10-Top and I wouldn't change it for anything else.... even of course I love to see pictures of those limited runs or luthiers guitars like Driskill etc.. None of my previous guitars (Gibsons, Blade R4, M&B Himmelsschlüssel or other) gave me ANY sound I always needed in just one instrument, my PRS does with the 5-way rotary and sweet switch! Thank you Paul! ;)

    It’d be tough to choose... if I didn’t own the [email protected]’ White West Street!

    This just shows how fickle I am LOL. For the past few weeks it’s been this Paul’s Guitar that used to be Paul’s personal guitar (Paul’s Paul’s Guitar).

    It served as Paul’s personal prototype for the new 2019 Paul’s Guitar. Paul also personally handpicked the woods, and I’m certainly not gonna argue with his selection because this axe indeed has special tone.

    Chaltecoco neck and Honduran RW FB. Comes with extra large mini toggles, whaddaya know!

    My 2013 McRosie still wins the shootout with my favorite F strat.... but that F strat still beats my other 3 PRSi because of sound (not feel or build quality).

    McRosie still wins. Every time.

    My 03 CE24 gets most of my love right now. However, I have a feeling it will slide to second place after I get my new CE24 Semi-Hollow.

    It’s rarely the same two weeks in a row. My classical gets played more than anything else by a wide margin - Laskin, old growth Brazilian, cedar.

    In the last week my 20 year old McCarty hollow body gets the nod.

    This one is so incredible. The tonal range on these must be so vast and addictive. Such a perfect example of a Private Stock top and color, too.

    Want.
