Put a gun to my head and I am keeping the Northern. Hands down, without question. The rest of them are just guitars to me, that is my baby. To be fair, I have enough babies I would probably just give you one of those if I could keep two guitars.

Still haven't gotten around to shortening up that input cable or putting the rest of the screws back in.... but that doesn't mean I love her any less.

That would be tough. Honesty I have 5-6 guitars that I could let someone else pick from, and I'd probably be happy. I think the 2022 R9 would be the keeper right now.

But I'll cheat and put another one, because I keep coming back to this one. 2001 Gibson Custom Shop Class 5 Les Paul

It would really suck if I could only keep one. But if so, it would have to be the '53.

If you'd asked me 2 years ago the answer most definitely would have been my custom shop tele. Since really getting to know what a 50's style LP is all about, no question that is it. A les paul is so much easier to play than a fender and as I get older that is a real benefit. I can get the bridge pickup to somewhat mimic a tele. One of the most shocking discoveries for me is how well my les paul does country but also rocks fantastically on classic rock styles.
To me the neck pickup on a les paul is far more useable and versatile than on a tele. I almost never use the neck pickup on a tele in a live setting while on a les paul its used a lot.
