    Just a bit of fun while we wait for the election results. What would be your one guitar model to rule them all doesn't have to be PRS just nothing like 59LP, 62 Strat, Paul's Number 1,(out of production ultra rare, liberated from a secured vault etc). Try to stay in whatever a realistic price range would be for you to comfortably spend on a guitar to be played.

    I’m going to limit my response to PRS since this is a PRS forum.

    McCarty 594 SC with IRW neck, 59/09 pickups and piezo.

    Core SSH piezo with S2 bevels.

    If we're limiting it to guitars that actually exist,
    I could get by just fine with only this one.

    If there can be only one, is it ok to add a piezo?

    It would have to be an orange PS Modern Eagle with 594 switching/volume, IRW neck, and ebony board.

    509. Not my favorite of all time, but it does more than most guitars, and it does it well. I love my DC3 , but it doesn't do humbuckers.

    A good friend of mine has a 345, bought by his dad just after the UK ban on US musical instruments, post WWII. Unfortunately, that's probably as close as I'm ever going to get to owning one. :(

    I'll vote for the PRS DGT, one of which I am now lucky enough to own. I could quite happily live with just this one guitar, if I really had to. :)

    What @11top said, though would be content with a McCarty S2 Singlecut 594, 58/15LTs, in Burnt Amber Burst. I'm not in need of one, and prefer to be realistic regards my finances, so will keep the wish to an S2.

    I'm going to limit my response to guitars I still own. I struggled with this question a lot. One guitar I'd favor over another at certain times, rather it was situations or my taste changed but never could definitively decide on the one I'd keep "if there could only be one." That all changed when I got my Cu24. It's the one above all others. It does everything well, has the "it" quality of sound the others don't have, and is a joy to play every time I pick it up. Oh and its blue and beautiful!

    PS I didn't pick it because this a PRS forum either!

    I have never played one to confirm it, but I think the ME-V is the one for me. Until I get the chance, I will stick to my Brent Mason Signature Model.

    I think mine might be a 6-string Hollowbody I.

    This is a tough question. I have a 2000 McCarty with 8515 neck pickup and that combo sounds so freakin good BUT my cu24 with 5909s can cover a ton of territory too so there's that.

    I have other prs guitars but I've been the most intimate with these two so I know how to make them work for me.
