    not the purdiest, but says in tune, can be played for 4 hours without hurtnig my back or shredding my fingers, is verstile as hell tone wise and last of all sounds as good as any guitar i've ever heard.

    My 1956 ES125.

    It was my Dad's. RIP Dad.

    He also gave me the Explorer in the background, neither will EVER be sold but the ES is the most precious to me because he played it so much.

    Thank you very much, Slaveone. That guitar is very special to me. Far beyond the monetary value, it's a little piece of my Dad that I get to hold on to.

    Never say never, but this one will probably stay:

    I had another McInturff FLE about 8 years ago that I couldn't afford to keep, but this one will stay mine

    My 76 Explorer, I bought it new in early 77 and it was my very first Gibson and to this day, one of the finest I've ever played. A huge neck and tone to match. It's a beautiful thing. I will never part with it. Every wear mark, scuff and scar has a story. I toured with this guitar for almost 40yrs and it's still going strong. A mojo machine

    My Ibanez RG 220B. This is the one I leave out and don't worry about getting nicked.

    Here is my keeper.

    I ordered it in December and two weeks later I shattered my elbow. I was told I had a 40% chance I would never be able to bend my arm again and thus never play again. Well I waited 3 months until the caste came off and slowly I have been able to play. I will never have normal movement of my arm again but it bends enough I can play about as well as before it broke. Thus this guitar just has a real special place with me. It is just now been set up so well I have never had a Gibson that plays as well as this one does. All in all my favourite Gibson even if it is only a Studio.

    I got this sucker in 1987 when I was 14 years old. I wanted a Jem, but it was too expensive. I also wanted the yellow, so this was my affordable choice. it is bone stock and only has one small ding. I have rarely gigged it, but it could cover everything musically with the 3 on/off switches and the push/pull coil tap on the HB. it even still has the original back stop system!

    Ibanez 540S

    this guitar has stayed while many other greats have passed through the collection - it really is the keeper.

    the ONLY other would be my brian moore - but that is because I do a lot with synth guitar when I record. even then, if I got a BETTER brian moore, my current one would be history. it is more of tool than anything else...

    Those Ibanez take a beating. If I got a LP Standard, it would probably be a keeper. Maybe even the Epi version.
