I probably don’t have a favorite guitar per se (look at me, using Latin!), but I do have favorite guitar plus amp combinations, with one exception: The 20th PS Anniversary model from a couple of years back sounds equally incredible with any of my amps, yet none of my amps sound alike (they cover the Marshall style, Tweed style, and Blackface style food groups). It’s a special instrument. Every time I play this guitar I go all gooey in the brain. It’s amazing, I love it, it loves me, we’re going to the chapel and we”re gonna get married... I sometimes think that a more tone-committed person would sell all of his other humbucker electric guitars and order another one of these from PS, but maybe with an all-mahogany body to compliment this one. It’s certainly a do-everything-well guitar. You know, the idea is to concentrate on this guitar concept, work it forever like a Grissom or Santana or Carlton might, and call it a life. I keep going back and forth. What’s the point of that? Well, it’s to go narrow but deep, as opposed to wide but shallow (you’re tempted to make the obvious joke here, aren’t you? I wouldn’t be able to resist making that joke if I simply happened to read this post, so don’t be thinkin’ you’re all that clever/original ). Still. Is it better to have a model that’s “the guitar I play,” or is it better to have a variety of choices, with the drawback that you’re more superficial due to the strictures and limitations of time on this planet? That is the conundrum! Perhaps there can be no answer for an addicted person like me? But I am attracted to the idea of finding a more or less permanent ‘voice’.
