I currently only have two guitars, and I like them both. One is my Epi Les Paul Classic Plus and the other is an Epi AJ-1 acoustic that is my lug around guitar (usually left at the girlfriends place). To be honest, that $99 AJ-1 plays really well and I find myself noodling around on it a lot. The rest of my gear is a Marshall MG15DFX amp, a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue, Ibanez TS-7 pedal, Behringer UB502 mixer, and a Behringer XM8500 mic.
I really do love my LP though, as it was my first guitar and a gift from my girlfriend. It gets played everyday (just about anyway) and I will never part with it. My next guitar will probably be a MIM Strat. The guitar that I'm gasing for though is a Gibson SG. In a few years when I get better as a player, I'll probably pick one up.

Well my favorite is my Gibson Les Paul Standard.
It cost me right about $2200. Alot of money, but in my mind worth every penny.
Whoops! You got ripped off!
If there's one thing I've learned from the Les Paul Forum guys, it's to never buy a Les Paul from GC or Musician's Friend. Most of the time their prices are competitive, but they really jack LP's up. Head to Centre City Music or Wildwood and you won't pay more than 1700 for a new Standard, and it'll come with a great set up.
And 2200? The high street price is 2000 right now anyways, is that including a case or did you get it somewhere where it was even... more ?
Well the only music stores near me that carry LPs are SamAsh and GC. The price was just about the same from place to place, and I refuse to buy guitars online so...
Now that I think about it though, I did buy a bunch of other stuff with it. This really nice strap I have been eyeing and a bunch of strings.
Gun control is using both hands!!!
All I have is my fender MiM standard stratocasterin black with white pick guard. . Great guitar, but I wanna replace with an epi elitist les paul, es 333, or epi g 400 custom
Oh.. and sorry to burst your bubbly somebody_someone, but I think Korn broke up. Apparently the lead singer "Found God" and doesn't want to sing that kind of music. 8)
Stairway to Freebird!
I heard about that. Apparently the lead singer suddenly found God and got baptized in the jordan river i think. He's now a very spirirtual person. A HUGE leap from what he used to do
OMG no, well as long as Nirvana is still around.
Nick you have a way with words
I have to say atm my 7 string is my fav guitar atm, tuned down a step (which is admittedly the same as korn but i play other stuff).. though unlike korn it has a 27" scale length and heavier gauge strings so it doesn't sound like mud.. increasing the gauge (mainly on the lowest string) actually improved the intonation as well. I can't understand how they play the guitar they do with the gauges... be too much like rubber bands for me :)
Also i must have a special knack to break the 60 gauge strings which was the 7th string.... now got a 65 there instead, sounds and plays so much better.. though i'm still considering either a higher gauge or maybe a half round string.
Still i also have an SG copy, which is also a great guitar :D

I have a Seagull s6=cedar, and a Raimundo classical. I like playing both, but the Seagull lends itself to more music styles. I would like to get a smaller body Seagull, either the Folk, or the Grand, but we only have one dealer carrying them in Orlando. At the moment they are having trouble getting any seagulls from their distributor. Anybody have any suggestions, or know of another place, near Orlando?
I only have 2.. A washburn D-10 which is my favorite .. I love the tone and for the 100 bucks I paid for it .. the sound just can't be beat. I also have a 1964 Ventura Bruno that has been passed down 3 generations.. and that as you can probably tell has sentimental value, not the best sound but it is good to practice on.
Looking to find an electric to start playing on...
I wanna Rock N Roll all night... Ahh who am I kidding I'll be in bed at 9 pm....
