    If I don't take one with me, I'll end up buying one so what to live with is the question. It will be played into a Kemper loaded with Britt profiles. Lots and lots of Britt profiles.

    SAS had good range.

    Hollowbody is pretty versatile with the piezo...and a sexy white case

    But the archtop hasn't been getting much love lately and is pretty compact

    And some of you know of other guitars in the house...I'm open to suggestions.

    Steve Jobs wished he had Pete’s hair. :D

    My recommendation is to commission a Vela semihollow PS, blinged to your standards. Keep the model’s neck carve and finish (pore-exposed mahogany highly recommended) hardware, and neck pickups. The option could be a 58/15 LT in the bridge. Or maybe a DGT. This is potentially a very light guitar, infinitely comfortable, and sonically flexible.

    If you don’t have 19 months to wait, grab an off the shelf new SH in a cool color.

    His hair is very nice...

    If only we could put his hair with Sergio’s eye brows... we could build the most perfect Ken doll that the world has ever seen.

    Just sayin.

    I think I'd be all over that HB with piezo.
    Great unplugged and plugged in, and a bonus acoustic sound!

    That’s why I’ve been saving it for you!
    It has been a frequent traveler in the last 10 years.

    The answer was hiding right in your question the whole time!

    SE One

    Enjoy your time.

    Edit: More seriously, I’d pick the least versatile guitar and force myself to work on technique.

    Take the blue one and start sticker-ing the top with stickers from your travels like an old timey suitcase.

    You know, this DGT Vela idea has stuck with me all afternoon.

    Yes it is. I’ll swap cases with my 80s HB (sans piezo) so I can still look like a boss in the hotel lobby.
    The 25th kind of got trumped by Blondie

    It’s extra work with the 12s. I might pack a smaller gauge just in case I wear out my fingers. You should probably try one for a few months.

    Hmm...

    If you need single coil sounds, SAS. If not, 25th Anni HB.

    I didn’t know you were taking reservations on your guitars :)

    Not exactly reservations, but from time to time I recognize a need and register it.
