They're all great. It's a quandary. The strat's so ergonomic and versatile. Can't play country on the SG, but what a great rocker! The PRS hollowbody is so light, plays jazzy so well, and the tele, well...it's a telly!

Every time I get ready to go out and play, I have the same argument with myself.

How about you? :hmm:

I take a les Paul and my prs sc245 as backup. No one but me cares if I play a strat part with a les paul.

It sounds like you're playing country, so I think you probably take your tele or PRS.

But I could be wrong, I'd like to phone a friend

take the guitar that would suit the music that you play the most. the backup guitar should be able to fit right in.

Why can't you play country on an SG? Am I missing something or is a guitar not a guitar anymore?

Well, of course you CAN, it's just hard to get that cosmic twang you get with a squished Tele, which has become the signature sound for a lot of country.

Teles do everything.

Country? Check.

Zep? Check.

Blues? Check.

Funk? Check.

Metal? Check.

When in doubt...tele.

All I know is my black custom is at ALL of them. Anything else is subject to change. Took a chance the other night and brought out a demo guitar to a pretty big gig. Luckily it went well.
