Thread: What Guitar Can You Not Put Down?

  1. #1

    What Guitar Can You Not Put Down?

    So we have the "food you can't put down" thread, and I'm thinking why not guitars you can't put down?

    I would watch a guitar network, but I'd never watch the Food Network. I can watch someone build a guitar, but have no interest in watching some famous chef cook.

    My A-V is probably my #1 rock instrument, and the SC58 cuts deep to my innermost musical self, but I can't stop playing the Sig Ltd. It's just so darn interesting, and it can be incredibly detailed and subtle, or can hit you over the head. Great instrument.

    So...what's the guitar that you can't put down once you pick it up?

    For me it's the last one in that does not want to leave my hands. Thr AP P22, with a pattern IRW neck and ebony board just feels so natural. Add the piezo and it's all there in one package.

    The I pick up the stripper and I'm ready to propose a lifetime monogamous commitment.

    I'm trying not to play the MEQ or CU24 so I can get my head around the idea of parting with them. Alas, I fail too often, fall in love again and return to start.

    My guilty pleasure...my SE One. It may be the lowest priced PRS in history but it plays like a million bucks.

    For me it's a toss-up between the Siggy and the CE24.

    I have spent many an hour just playing with the mini-toggles on the Siggy, playing the same songs over and appreciating the differences.

    The CE makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. It's the most raucous axe I have ever had, and probably best neck ever.

    For me it's my PS Custom 22 in Charcoal Cherry Burst. Mahogany body and neck, maple top, ebony board, 57/08's with McCarty switching. It's chunky, it's snappy. It's so metal, it's so sexy.

    I have big GAS for an Artist V due to it having similar wood combination. One day!

    I have 2 guitars that just make me feel like playing into the night and it's a case of whichever I pick up first. Both have a real organic feel, hardly any finish and they are both so resonant you don't need to plug in at home. Here they are....

    Well Les,I waited for Mr Smith to make this instrument,for a long time. Many dead presidents fell by the way, on the journey to the ownership of this prize!!! WE HAVE ARRIVED!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I took my SE Orianthi to a session yesterday because my other guitars are buried (or unfinished yet) since my move. I mean of course it's upgraded fully, but I'm still in awe of how much I like that guitar, it also made me enough money to buy gas, squares, wine, and dinner.

    I love my Goldtop DGT - I've pretty much shunned all others since 2008.

    My P24, not because of just the piezo, but the way it sounds with the McCarty body thickness and the 53/10's. It is inspiring me to write some pretty killer riffs, isnt that what its all about. I'm so lucky have one.

    It had been my DGT for quite a while, but since last fall, it's been the 408. The DGT neck is just heavenly in my hands, but the 408 is extremely close - and it's IRW.

    I purchased my 2011 cu24 this past summer and I LOVE that guitar. It blows me away how versatile this guitar is and those pickups are fabulous. I dont understand why 5909s are not offered on the cu24 for 2013. What gives? I have a mccarty and a cu22. I love those guitars as well but there is something about my cu24 that speaks to me. I wouldnt even think of going to a gig withoutit,I cant put it down.
