5 Guitars - what are they?

Post by jwishart77 » January 17th, 2007, 2:33 pm

OK - if you could have 5 electric guitars in your collection, and only 5, what would they be? For the sake of the argument, let's leave out customs and vintage etc - just models in general.

Personally I think a Tele, Strat and Les Paul are givens.
Then it gets trickier..
Maybe a PRS and a hollowbody...Gibson ES335....or maybe something more exotic..Gretsch, Rickenbacker.....hmmm...
OK;
1) Les Paul
2) Strat
3) Tele
4) ES335
5) Some kind of Gretsch...
:?

1) My first electric, a Kay that cost me £35 about 15 years ago :)
2) My Marlin Sidewinder, another cheapo
3) A guitar that I made myself (haven't got there yet, but I will one day)
4) In Ibanez Iceman
5) A '59 Les Paul

That's my entire list too, it just happened to be 5 items long... and I genuinely would not swap my first guitar for any other on the planet. When I started out, every guitarist I'd ever spoken to had said "I really wish I still had my first guitar", so I resolved then that I would never let it go no matter what. Since then, that sentiment has evolved to be any of my guitars... not being able to trade up is a little limiting, but I'm happy with my choice :mrgreen:

Slash could stand outside my door begging me to swap my Kay for his entire collection and give me free lessons 40 hours a week for the rest of my life, and I'd still keep it. I might try and barter something for a loan, but it'd still be mine :wink:

Is Schecter an American type thing? I've only ever heard of them in this forum. I've never seen one in Australia and I don't know what's so good about them. They're obviously pretty cool because you guys all seem to love them! I had a look online at musician's friend once, but it's hard to tell what all the fuss is about just looking at a pic and some stats online....

I can totally understand the feeling of not wanting a LP or Strat, I never wanted them either (i still don't have a Strat but it will probably be next on the list) because I felt like everyone has them. However after 'accidentally' plugging them in at the shops, the sound and playability of them just blew me away and I had to have them. I think they're like prestige cars, there's a reason people want them - it's not just to be cool, it's because they're so hard to beat :D

Thats why I love my Schecter C1EA and no doubt I believe that the guitars you are talking about sound beautiful. So many pros play them.. But my Schecter has such an awsome tone. I believe its Korean.. but I am not sure.. never really checked.

For what its worth. My next guitar is a Lite Ash Tele.. I forgot to list that specifically.
