If my son would ever return the dozen or so guitars he "borrowed", I might get to see them once in a while. But my "go to" guitars are 2. One, a "like showroom new" 1973 Gibson L6-S in tobacco sunburst and the other a 2000 Am Std strat, black with maple neck that I finally set up like I wanted it.
Currently rebuilding/restoring my 1962 Fender duosonic. I havent seen my SG's or Les Pauls in years. But the L6-s never leaves me. I told him he can have it after I'm dead. Not a real fan of Les Pauls due to their weight. I get almost the same sustain from the L6 and much better neck action. I would like one of my SGs back though....
None of my LPs are rare, btw. Just bargain prices, so I bought them. Currently looking for a nice old Tele...maybe 62-64 or so....for under 10K. You name it, I've probably owned it and sold it. I still go back to that small necked L6. Good guitars are decent investments if you know where to flip them. I was offered $8K for my L6...and laughed. You can buy them (1974-75 models) on ebay all day long for 350-1000. But I've never seen this one for sale anywhere...so it stays.
