    I keep vacillating between these two. (When I’m not stealing my standard Tele back from my daughter) The CVT has TV-Jones T-90’s, and a Varitone. It sounds SO good through the Sugar Drive into my VHT, but I don’t get enough chances to play through my “big” amp at home. The Tele is really good for rock sounds (I’m sure the Dimarzio’s don’t hurt) the neck feels really good (an MIK Bullet neck) It’s all good.

    No. It just feels that way.

    I think that may, at least in part, be due to its unusual for a Gibson construction.

    The neck is maple, not mahogany (Gibson's norm), and unlike most if not all of the other guitars Gibson makes with set maple necks the CM has a solid maple cap (not a veneer). Thus the set neck makes it maple/maple and the feel is as if it were of one piece of wood. More so, surprisingly, then some true neck-through designs I have played over the years.

    My Squier Classic Vibe Duo Sonic is hands down my favorite, guitar anyway. Bass is a whole diffent world. The duo sonic has been my steadfast strumming companion for 7 years since I bought it new in 2011, only modification I did to it was put in a GFS lil killer hotrail in the bridge. The build quality is phenomenal, the tones a very versatile and pleasant, the aluminum pickguard makes it the quietest guitar I own, and I love the short scale. It just feels like home when I pick it up :)

    Some special guitars! @duceditor Don's favorite guitar is the one he playing right now. Here's a favorite partscaster and fun player. CV '50 bod, CVC rosewood neck, Texas Spec pickups, ash tray added for the "throwback" effect. DSCN2528.JPG

    For the past few weeks, it's been the VM Tele Custom. From throaty blues to nasal-twang country, it has a large palette of tones.

    My '92 MIM Tele is the one that gets pulled down from the rack the most. I cant ask for anything more in a Telecaster than I get from this. Its totally stock. I've tried changing things around 20180720_132847.jpg but to me stock sounded the best and that's how its going to stay.

    It’s true, how can we just pick one as a favorite. It’s just not fair. I love my SQ. It just feels right in my hands and all the abuse it’s had done by the previous owner just makes it mysterious.

    Playing my VM Cabronita has made me appreciate what an amp can do for tone. She is a quality, well made instrument that makes simplicity sound good.

    Similar to @Davis Sharp , since getting my VM tele Custom she has been played a lot. Super clean and bright Tele tones with a smooth bucker that likes to get driven.

    I always favored LPs and Strats and still play one of each. I suppose I am becoming a Tele convert.

    What an unfair question! What a great question! What great guitars and stories!

    Currently this is my player. These SD pups sound good no matter what you do . I purposely built this guitar to be a lightweight and It ended up being perfectly balanced. The Squier Deluxe one piece maple neck is super fast and comfortable to play. At just a hair under 1 11\16 at the nut it's just about perfect :0)

    Today’s favorite... I love it because it’s not just a warmed over signature model that the artist doesn’t actually use, and it is unique.

    1999 Yngwie strat, and I hate strats....

    If I ever have a signature model it will be an SG, U2 or a V.

    This is such a great topic. Someone started a similar one some time back. But with the newer members and some who missed the first one, I'm getting a chance to see some real beauties. Keep em coming. Nod to @fadetoz for starting it.

    Favorite I've ever owned was probably the Fender/MJT partscaster I had last year. Quadrupled my money on it so that helps with the regret over selling it. Right now I own a Fender USA Lonestar that is everything I love about guitars. It's a Strat (duh), love the Shoreline Gold color, it's a 98 so the maple neck has 20 years of tint and patina and medium jumbo frets, Texas Special pickups in the neck and middle and an SD Pearly Gates Plus in the bridge. The HSS configuration is also my favorite so that works out perfect. There's just nothing about this guitar I don't love.

    Although I own several Squiers, Epiphones and Gretsches, my favorite guitar all around is my Kramer Assault Plus. The fit and finish are remarkable and it has great Seymore Duncan pickups along with locking tuners and a great 24 fret neck (two full octaves). The sound is amazing and very versatile. You can go from a smooth jazz sound to a sold crunch with a crank of a knob or the tap of a pedal. It has coil tapping for even more versatility and has the best bass response and sustain of any guitar I have.
