    so...purely hypothetical because I’m healthy and not at medium term risk of being in financial trouble. But @11top made me wonder what my last guitar might be.

    I’ve said before I’ll keep my Laskin classical and acoustic until the end of days, so it’s really down to what electrics deserve to make it to the final countdown. Many of you have seen most of my guitars already, so I won’t list them all. I might be willing to share a refresher photo for something you remember and want to see again.

    Are you asking us which of yours we think you should keep? Or which of ours would we keep? Or which of yours would we sneak in and pilfer while you're in the slam?

    In terms of electric tones, what do you favor? It would be easy to say, keep the dragon because it’s a dragon, but what sends you to tonal bliss is the better choice. Hard question for me to answer myself between my first PRS(most everyone here knows the story and sentiment) and my PS. Actually it’s not as hard. My PS is the one that gives me the most joy playing it. So I’d tell you to figure that question out while deciding between your electrics. I’ve always been partial to your Westie but I really don’t know ALL your guitars, so I could be forgetting something.

    Any of those would be interesting to hear, but I was asking which you thought I should keep to the end

    IMHO this thread requires:
    - A full & complete inventory list
    - A mandatory pic
    - Your clear & honest admission as to which one feels best in your hands, to your ears, and inspires your playing.

    U know me and that my suggestion would be your very best HB, but I'm prejudiced in a blatant way. That said, I think it should be "last two guitars standing", your best HB and the solid body that gives off the high pitched angel strings sound when you open the case.

    I mean, if you’re going to jail I think it would be a good idea to hide your assets. There’s some space over here, and I won’t tell.

    That’s a solid plan. I would even be willing to help out with the overflow.

    It's not really fair to judge just on pics. Ship them to me (bulk or one at a time - you're call) so I can devote some time and give you a valid answer.

    I’m a bit of a tone slut - I’ll play them all. But, dirty blues is my go to - Boogie Mark III is the ticket for me and I’ll keep that.

    The millennium dragon does always give me that sound. Dirty 100 is a good match just plugged in. I can get most of my guitars into that space.

    I love sitting down with the tree of life single cut though. It always makes me happy.

    I have a spare room and work from home internet. You could come for a month and try them out through my amps.

    Fair enough, but a full inventory might make me look like an entitled prick.

    I’m good with a hollow body and one solid.

    Wait, I thought that epithet applied to all of us PRS owners...? What massive change in guitar-player-opinion-world have I missed? ;)

    Other than my Martin D-35?

    Probably my '99 BRW McCarty...

    Either that or my Cunetto Nocaster Relic, since it can also be used as a weapon...
