    My 1986 PRS Custom 24 (Serial number just over 500)
    It was my father's guitar. He bought it new in '86 before most folks even knew who Paul Reed Smith was. He gave it to me shortly before he passed away in 2007. Needless to say, it's a keeper.

    Can I have two? It would be very hard to narrow it down between these two.

    1. My 1957 Reissue Stratocaster. I believe it's an '83 or early '84 by V005XXX serial number, but have never taken the neck off. I bought this guitar new in 1986 (dealer had bought quite a few Fullerton reissues to hold them through until the start of Corona production) when I was 15 after a summer of saving. It was my first name brand guitar after a no name classical, a Lotus Tele copy and a Mach 1 Explorer copy. If I could just have one, this one would probably be "The One."

    If I can cheat and have two, the other would be this one, Jem 777 LG #16, which I am also the original owner of:

    1984 B.C. Rich Ironbird. It is one of the first Ironbirds they made. It has a brass pre-patent Kahler tremolo. I've had it since 1986. It has some war wounds and a little bit of history

    There's a couple of contenders but one fore sure is this. It's a 1995 Taylor 810. Sitka Spruce top, IRW back and sides, Mahogany neck. I'm the original owner. Never found another acoustic I like more. We've been through a lot.

    Go fvck yourself. If you knew ANYTHING about the history of rock and roll music, you'd know how important the Grady Martin Bigsby was. Show some guitars you built, so I can tell you how bad YOU suck.

    I have a few of those.

    This is an Old Moon that Ray Redness made for me over the course of a year of casual conversations about several Gibson's I've owned that I liked and what I didn't like about them. He then gifted the guitar to me about 3 years ago. Amazing sounding guitar and my #1 live.

    [​IMG]

    This one is an '87 BC Rich Gunslinger custom. It's very rare as it was done as a 2 pickup from the factory which was not a stock option. The finish is not really my thing, but the guitar sounds AMAZING and has the best sounding JB in the bridge that I've ever heard. My go to shredder guitar.

    [​IMG]

    And finally my '97 Brian Moore C90p. This guitar looks amazing and sounds like nothing else I have. Incredible guitar.
