Which is the best guitar ever made?

Or...

Which kind of guitar is your favorite?

I haven't really played enough to be able to have a favourite. I really like my guitars though.

And a sunburst Japanese Silver Series Squier strat which is about 8 years old and I can't find a picture of. It's the 3 colour sunburst with a rosewood fretboard.

Are we talking strictly "guitars" or can we include "basses" in here.

If we're allowed to talk basses, then I'd have to say JayDee Supernatural Basses.

But then I would say that :love:

Look at these beauties...

The 2nd bass in from the left - I actually owned that one for a while, it has the 7 Dwarves engraved in to the fret board in mother of pearl.

Beautiful guitars.

"Les Paul Studio Black/gold with Duesenberg tremolo"

Hey I have Les Paul Studio Black/gold too... just no tremolo.

Twin. Bah.

The tremolo is nice, because you don't have to change much, just a part of the bridge. Works quite good, actually.

I played a Yamaha bass with a tremolo on it once. I couldn't help but just think "Why a trem on a bass??".

I also tried an Ibanez bass that had all these fret scallop cut outs at the top of the neck like some of their lead guitars. Again I just thought "urh, why?". I know Billy Sheean's bass had fret cuts on it, he tried to play the thing like a lead guitar, but he was a complete fruit cake of a player.

I have a Fender US Telecaster with a Seymour Duncan Little '59 humbucker in the bridge position and a 25 year old (approx) Yamaha acoustic which is badged as a 'Mountain and is a surprising ly good copy of a Martin D28.
Hopefully next year I will be investing in a Collings, Martin, Santa Cruz etc acoustic if I get the money I'm hoping for (the fun part will be the trying out).
