Tough call. Right now, I'm going with the Santana. Maple neck and ebony board give it a little extra zing!

And this one, one of the last ones ever built on the Core line, with a solid East Indian Rosewood neck -

I have a humble SAS, in Azul Blue. It`s an incredibly versatile guitar. Not the prettiest girl at the prom, but always gives me what I want. My guitar buddies tell me they know it when they turn their backs because the sound is so distinctive. It just feels right in my hands. Then there is a 30th Ann.SE CU24, and an 03 CE24. There are several others close behind.

My Avatar Guitar, Prototype SC 594 from the Private Stock team. Best guitar I have ever owned, has been my favorite since arriving in October of 2016.
Also it has a really cool "Semi-Gloss" Nitro finish, which gives it a really vintage and worn in feel. I have never heard of this finish before anywhere, but I dig it, I like it so much that I spec'ed another SC 594 with this finish.

It came with the 5815 LT's in it. I tried ThroBak Peter Green's in there, and regular 5815's. Both were great, but I went back to 5815 LT's, this time a set with Gold Screws to better match the Hybrid Hardware look, and it sounds amazing, just perfect. These LT's match this model really well, vintage PAF classic Singlecut tones!!

You've never heard of a semi-gloss nitro finish?? Come on Pete, you need to get out more :D. But on a serious note, the 59/09 limited from a few years back like the one Spikedog posted had a semi-gloss nitro finish. Love your guitar though, it's so sick!!!

Right now it would be my modified Mira X. No other reason than it's the one sitting out on a stand right now. Love the shorter scale and the Phat Cats in it. (But I'm mainly playing acoustic right now, so my electrics are mostly just sitting around.

My MC58.

I play it everyday even if it's just for a few minutes.

My hands can't go more than a day without playing it or holding it. Such a well built instrument I love it so much.

Don't shoot yourself short, if you went for one it would probably be the one that makes the others collect dust.
I only record, write songs with it and gig only once in a blue moon at jazz spots, so you can call me a hobbyist too.
No reason to deny yourself the love & rapture that is an HB II.;)
That's what happened to me. Rarely play anything else for very long anymore. Play my NF3 for something very different sounding. But most of the time it's just the PS.
