    Just because I'm curious, which is your favourite of this bunch?
    Which gets the most play time?

    I cycled thru favorites at different times but
    #1 was the G&L S-500
    #2 my go to guitar for many years was the HSS which I bought for a little over $250 on ebay. When I bought it I just liked how it looked, it was listed with very bad tiny pictures and a poor description. I got it filthy and cleaned it up and it just had the mojo. I call it a tex-mex cause of the pickups but it was just a partscaster. I changed out the pickups once and it killed it so put the old ones back in and it came back to life.
    #3 the '95 USA -all stock - looked, played & sounded incredible
    (should've kept this one but needed the money)

    -never bonded with the "67 Reissue but it was gorgeous looking.
    -the 60's Classic Player was really nice but not what I was looking
    for at the time -- I did just get a set of the '69 pickups (abby initialed)
    recently that are from a 60's CP and they sound fantastic.

    The one on the left is my old standby, a 2009 EJ Strat my wife and kids were kind enough to let me buy for my 40th birthday. It's absolutely my favorite guitar. Death will part us. The one on the right is a recently acquired "Traditional Series," which is basically an entry level MIM guitar with junk Asian pots, wiring, caps, bridge, tuners, jack, etc. The pickups are stock MIM, and the wood is rumored to be American surplus that was shipped to Ensenada for finishing. I gutted it basically -- the only stock parts left are the wood (and nut), plastic and pickups. And it sounds amazing. Fantastic sounding and playing guitar for less than $300 including the upgrades.

    Since those pics were taken I turned my Black Fender and Gold Charvel into Maiden Tribute Strats and stripped my Black San Dimas.

    Is that a Squier Series? Mine is a Traditional Series (same guitar without the word "Squier" on it) that is phenomenal. I changed all the hardware, electronics, and the pickguard, but the wood and pickups are stock, and it is really an amazing guitar.

    04 Gunmetal Satin. Absolutely HATED the finish at first but once I switched out the plastics with these I grew to love it.
