So on November 10th (sorry about the lag there), I asked the following question on Twitter and on the Facebook page – “Ok. Question time. Seems like a lot of a peeps have a few guitars in their line up. What’s your #1 guitar? The guitar you’d run into a burning building to save.” I remember Twitter seemed a bit slow, so thought I’d get some community interaction going.
Below are the responses:
JohnnydelFuego @effectsbay 71 Telecaster with Rosewood fretboard.
rrevenge @effectsbay so far my Shecter Avenger Jagermeister edition. my frankenstein is gonna be better tho. i got my Gotoh floyd in the mail!
HomesickFrank @effectsbay 1995 American Standard Strat with colored headstock. Custom Shop design – limited production.
RandallMBrown @effectsbay My “burning-building guitar”: The black Fender Flame: http://www.masterseriesguit….
Merrw @effectsbay Mine is an Eastwood GP – goldtop
lloydtones @effectsbay Mine’s a 1st year Ibanez Jetking II. I love that guitar like I love little else. Too bad Ibanez messed up the later models.
collateraldmge @effectsbay Gibson Les Paul Custom Slash Edition
Petroguy @effectsbay McCarty Soapbar is getting saved. Then I would go back for the wife.
drewstreetmary @effectsbay 52 RI Telecaster for me!
Trey Bliss Although I’m usually playing my Les Paul, I have a 1955 Gretsch Duo Jet I don’t like to take out to gigs. Amazing guitar thats great for the studio. I would run in to save it.
Justin Vigeant What a cruel question… hmmm, I would say the Tele just barely edges out the SG, but both are pretty light, so hopefully I could get both in time!
Owen Vickers That’s a really hard question, but if I had to choose one, it would be my bitsa guitar put together from a Realtone Strat shaped body, Ibanez RG140 neck and Rio Grande pickups. And then my Malmsteen Strat, if I was fast enough 😉
Patricio Morales Tought question… for personal reasons, my most beloved guitar is a ’93 AM. ST. Strat that my late dad bought me. It stands next to my bed and I no longer tour with it. In fact, when I die I wish to be cremated with it (unless my daughter wants it really bad).
Of the guitars I do gig with (and which are at my rehearsal space) I wouldn’t hesitate … Read Morein saving my Duesenberg Starplayer TV… although it would break my heart to see my Jap. Jazzmaster with K. Novak pups burn to a crisp. Can I save both?
Kevin Kelsey My Jazzmaster…but my Toronado is a very close second.
