    My #1 favorite is a git'r I don't have anymore, having sold it when I was young and foolish 'cuz - GASP - I needed the money. :roll: It was a '68 Gibby ES-355ESTD in mint shape. I still wake up at night in a cold sweat thinking about it. :cry:

    So nowadays, it's my '79 Ibanez MC200 Musician:

  • Through the GNX4, my favorite is the Ibanez RG5EX1, from clean/acoustic to heavy distortion and everything in between!

    Currently I'm playing my Epi LP Custom (EMG 81/85, Gibson TP-6 tail piece, TonePro Tune-o-Matic w/Graphtec saddles) and my white Schecter C1FR Hellraiser sixxer, both tuned to DropC.

    When needing standard tuning with some additional kick in the low end I pick up one of my Schecter C7FR Hellraisers (7 stringers). I have one in white as well as black to represent the duality of my musical personalities. =)

    Then there's always my USA made '96 50th Anniversary Fender Strat Plus Deluxe w/Lace Sensors & roller nut, but that's more of a keep sake that I intend on passing down to my niece when she gets old enough to appreciate it. It stays in its case most of the time these days.

    My older Jackson DR7T 7 stringer collects dust, but is there as a backup in case something happened to either of my C7FR's.

    I suppose if I had to pick my \"one favorite\" it would have to be either of my C7FR's. Both are well made guitars with excellent tone and playability.

    2004 Ibanez Joe Satriani Signature JS1000 Black Pearl.
    (doesn't show fingerprints and kiss marks like other black guitars)
    DiMarzio Fred bridge pickup that gives those Satch-style harmonics and overtones.
    DiMarzio PAF-PRO neck pickup.
    Hi-pass filter push/pull switch in volume control.
    Coil tap push/pull switch in tone control.
    Multi-radius JS Prestige neck and Low-Pro Floyd Rose Tremolo.
    Basswood body (very light, but still great sustain)

    I Love mine as well Manitou! These days I would Say the Fender AM Deluxe FMT Strat is the number 1. I do still play the JS prety much every week 8) I love that thing So comfortable effortlessly to play. Actually both these guitars are so close to each other. Just different Tones. Although when I coil tap the Js it gives pretty decent single coil tones! Fairly noisy when not playing BUT I have a Humdebugger pedal that quites all hum 8)

    My favorite is definitely my Epi LP. It has that bold sound I like from solid body guitars.

    I do have a ESP M102 that I have been wanting to put EMG pickups in. also wanted to put locking machine heads on it. My question on that is, I already have Floyd Rose locking trmelo--wondering if locking machine heads is overkill? What does everybody else think?

  • My first guitar was The Gibson SG and i got it as a gift from my father. My father is also a guitarist and he used to use this guitar.
  • I would have to say my Schecter Damien FR 6-string is my favorite, it was cheap, plays well, dont weigh alot and the finish is satin black with black hardware, it looks really evil :twisted: that and my Jackson is a cheap model and my Peavey Tracer is 18 years old, i'm goin with my Schecter.

    I know this thread is 4 years old but I thought I'd resurrect it as it looks like it is / was a cool thread.

    I own both Gibson and Epihone guitars and my Epi. Ace is my favorite guitar and even more so since I upgraded to a 50's style wiring kit from Jonsey Blues with Vintage Braided wires, Switchcraft switch and jack, CTS 550k pots, with a push pull bridge tone pot to turn the middle pup on and off and PIO .022 caps. to complete the upgrade. The tones I get from it now are shweeett!!
