my only guitar is HSS style US Strat, although I'm planning on getting acoustic guitar very soon. What types of guitars do you guys own?

PRS Custom 24 for the lead stuff and PRS Paul Allender for riffing. I'm also currently using the Ibanez MMM Baritone, although soon enough I planning on a switch to the PRS Mike Mushok Baritone. smile.gif I see the PRS as a combination of power and refinement - just what I need from a guitar - tone, playability and sharp looks tongue.gif

As for acoustic stuff...I'm still searching for something - I like the Yamaha model used by Sevendust's guitarist, Clint Lowery, but since I never had any opportunity to try one, I guess I'll have to wait a little until I get my hands on it smile.gif

I play a Fret King Esprit, Trevor Wilkinson's brand. Bought from Ivor Mairants in London.
I initially wanted a higher end Les Paul but this guitar was just amazing.
PAF mikes, it's a brand I'm sticking with.

I have:

ESP M1 standard (2011 model)
Ibanez RG270
Ibanez MTM2
Fender acoustic

The ESP is my primary guitar. I keep the RG270 under a couch at my parents, so I can play when I am bored, while visiting. The MTM2 is strictly for drop tuned songs.

The acoustic is used almost never, but it looks good on the wall

Ibanez RG560 (1989 Japan)
Ibanez RG7620 (1999 Japan)
Kramer Focus 1000 (1985 Japan - EMG 81 Pickup)
Minarik Lotus (EMG Kerry King Edition Pickup Set)
Fretlight Pro (Prototype)
Yamaha Classical (Nylon String with Internal Pickup/Eq)
Ibanez Acoustic-Electric Guitar (Internal Pickup/Eq)
Rogue 6 String Bass (Active EQ)
Rogue Mandolin Accoustic/Electric (Internal Pickup/EQ)

That about covers it wink.gif Most of these I bought used, some VERY used. So the lot of them really didn't cost that much. Some are really cheap instruments like the ROGUES and the accoustics. I am a sucker for cheap guitars that play and sound decent. I've never spent more than $500 on any single instrument and keeping that fiscal discipline is what has allowed me to fill out my home studio with gear. For example, instead of getting a new JEM 7string, I got a used Ibanez 7620 and honestly it plays and sounds great. With the money I saved, I bought nice reference monitors and some rack gear.

Well, here goes...
PRS Custom 24
PRS Swamp Ash Special, 25th Anneversary Model.
Gibson Les Paul Custom, Black Beauty, 3 Pickups, Gold Hardware
Ibanez 540 (pre-dates JS models, 1st Ibanez endorsed by Satriani)
Warmoth Strat w/Lindy Fralin Vintage Hots
Ovation Celebrity Acoustic
Washburn 6-String Acoustic
Breedlove 12-String Acoustic
Ibanez SG300 Bass.

Hmmm. I think I have too many guitars tongue.gif . Well, I heard Richie Sambora once say "A man can never have too many guitars. ... and pairs of sunglasses." I guess it's true. I stopped getting rid of guitars after making two very big mistakes. First I traded my Cherry Sunburst Gibson Les Paul (that I bought with a bank loan when I was 17) for a digital reverb unit about 5 years after I got it. The guitar is probably worth bookoo bucks now, and the reverb unit, which I still have, is worth about $20. Then I once bought a pre-CBS Fender Stratocaster at a garage sale for $400 (the original owner was an older gentleman who had never actually played it so it was in mint condition). I then sold it the next day to a friend who ran a music store for $700. The sad part about that one is that I didn't really need the money at that time as I had just started my first job as an electrical engineer and was doing ok. Oh well, live and learn I guess, but that's when I decided to start keeping all my guitars. So the ones above are part of my 20+ year collection (I bought the Ibanez 540 in 1987 shortly after Surfin with the Alien was released). IMHO, if you have the storage space, and don't need the money, keep all of your guitars forever. Not that I play them all every day or every month anymore. I tend to have one goto favorite all the time. It's just that I've built up quite a few memories with these damn things. Then again, on the other side of the coin, you never really need more than one good guitar. At least keep that one forever even if you have to quit playing for awhile. Time will pass, and you'll have a chance to get back into it eventually.

I have a PRS Mark Tremonti Signature model and my acoustic is a Garrison G20. Garrison was a guitar company here in Newfoundland but Gibson bought them out a couple of years ago.

My two main guitars are:

- Fender Highway One Stratocaster SSS
- ESP LTD H-1001

The Ltd has a 24v mod (yes, 24v) and three EMG pickups that I rotate through the different positions. Currently I have the 85 in the bridge and the 81 in the neck, but I think I like the 60 in the neck more, so thats probably gonna change. I'm looking to get my hands on an EMG HA sometime soon. The HA is the SA single coil in a humbucker housing.

The Highway one Strat has the hot Alnico III pickups in it, which I have mixed feelings about. They're more than adequate when playing with any amount of gain. Not the best, but good and acceptable. But for clean sounds, there is a bit of that Strat sparkling clean missing. I usually compensate for this by plugging it into a Bad Monkey and turning up the treble and volume on the pedal. I'm thinking of putting a humbucker in the bridge, either a DiMarzio Chopper or a Seymour Duncan JB I have in another guitar.

I also have a guitar that I got from one of my friends for $30. He had a habit he needed to satiate and I needed a guitar biggrin.gif Its a 1981(?) Yamaha Studio Lord. I dated it by looking at the date on the back of the pickups. Yes, a genius move on my part tongue.gif Its a Les Paul Lawsuit guitar, and looks almost exactly like it. The major difference between it and the LP is the fact that the Studio Lord is a bolt-on neck. There is also a volute on the neck, which is a reliability advantage it has over the Gibson it is imitating. Its got a monstrous tone, and excellent sustain. It has a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and an eBay Dragon Mountain pickup in the neck, which surprisingly sounds pretty good. But I don't like the frets on it, there too low and wide for my tastes. It also needs a new nut and a trussrod adjustment. So its sitting in the back of my closet for now.

For an acoustic I have a 91' Ovation legend given to me by my grandfather. Its a great guitar with excellent workmanship and a very loud, ringing sound. But I did notice it is somewhat fussy about what kind of strings I put on it. I have to put very bright strings on it in order for the bass strings not to sound dull. A little detail about this guitar that I think is really cool is the fact that the tuning machines say "W.Germany" on them. It really dates it to another time in human history.

I also have a 4 string banjo. I never play it because it stays in tune about as well as a pimple popping teenager can speak in an even voice. Instead of having machine tuners, it has friction pegs, which are the biggest piece of shit design ever. How well it stays in tune depends on how well the rubber gasket holds the peg.

In the back of my closet I have a Peavey Milestone II bass guitar that has a warped neck. It plays fine down in the lower frets so I' not too concerned about it. It was given to me by a friend.

Then of course, there is the gem in my collection. It was gift also given to me by my grandfather. Its a Jose Ramirez classical, made in Spain. The sound that comes out of that guitar is absolutely stunning, every note is rich and textured. It also smells fantastic. I open it the case every now and then just to get a whiff of it.

The funny thing about my collection. If no one gave me a guitar, I would only have two biggrin.gif
