Nowadays it is something like:
30% Custom 24
the cone of shame!
I have two. My first was my Paul's. So there is an emotional attachment to it. My second was my HB 1. And it is so light that maybe it is slightly my favorite to play for that reason.
I would say that I play the HB 1 53.47% of the time and my Paul's 46.53% of the time.
My second should be arriving tomorrow... Help me. The first is an SE Custom 24, the second is an S2 Standard 22.
Now THAT is diligence! That's going above and beyond to give an accurate answer to the question. (I was both estimating, and rounding off...)
I do the Hokey Pokey and I turn 'em all about..... aCk!!!
So was I!
I usually try to be impartial towards one or the other. One might have a different weight and resultant tone, the other, lighter and its own tone. The acoustic is for when the amp is off the table.
Either S2 is built the same way, except for finish and perhaps some minor electronic repair adjustments. Each has its own characteristics, it mostly depends on how long I might practice vs. weight relief...
but, when rounding off, I stay to the left of the decimal point, and you went two places to the right!
(aka, it was a joke...not necessarily a funny one. I had a 2 minute break waiting for docs. I did what I could with the time I had. )
hmmmm. I always thought that was a hearing aid. Er what?
I don’t play them equally and don’t really have a favourite.
I’ll probably play a lot of red this month.
Usually I just play the one that calls my name as I walk into the room.
I like to get in my home studio at least twice a week and jamb on about 6-8 guitars over the course of about 2 yrs.
I'll play my '09 DGT, my new to me '95 Custom 24, and then I'll play my Tom A's, Suhr, Gibson 335, and then some Fender Tele's and Strats. and finally some acoustics.
I feel it's important for me to be able to navigate all these guitar's necks with ease and feel comfortable with them.
You just never know when you might end up going to a jam or having to fill in last notice for a friend at a gig ,and figure only a certain guitar will fit the bill.
I want to be able to pick up any of my guitars and be able to play with confidence.
I will say that I prefer some of my guitars because of the neck, weight and versatility of the tones available, but they ALL get some love at one time or another.
The newest one tends to get the most love, Then I try and rotate thru or play them all in one day along with beer over the holidays I try and restring and clean them all.
I go by sequence in which their cases are arranged in. I call it the Rotation of Bliss.
Is that an aftermath of of this? :
Standard issue for us sound men.
In your defense, there ain't enough time in the day to play all of yours. Even after you retire!
I play the latest one the most (currently the McCarty 594) and then after a while it just goes into rotation. When I go to play, I look at the wall and just pick the one I’m feeling right then. And if one hasn’t gotten played in a few weeks, I’ll pick that one. Guitars that I don’t play for a while don’t hang around too long here.
Due to the ongoing move I haven’t been able to play as most are stored offsite. I’ll get to play a few this week
My PS build gets the most time since years of empirical research went into it. I try to rotate among the others. The new Orca truly is killer though
I have four (need new avatar). Lately it's either the SS or Goldtop McTrem. Still in love with the neck on my Siggy Ltd. It just hasn’t had much recent love. SCT is latest in. Just haven’t given it much of a go as yet.
Oh boy...... I think it depends on what genre of music I feel like playing and how I feel that day. Sometimes I want a more single coil sound sometimes I want a harder edged Humbucker sound.
