  • Let's see YOUR #1...

    We all have a favorite, whether it be a guitar, girlfriend/wife or child (JK) and, on occasion, the one that is your favorite may change for various reasons. Sometimes it's a hard choice so if you have more than one favorite that's okay. That said; please limit it to a maximum of two guitars and feel free to say why they're your favorite if you'd like to share.

    My current favorite/#1: Because it came together perfectly, plays as effortlessly as any guitar I've owned and sounds beautiful whether clean or over-driven.

    Charvel Sambora Mutt

    - 2009 Charvel USA San Dimas One Piece Maple Neck with R3 1 11/16” Nut, 22 6100 Jumbo Frets, Grover Mini-Rotomatic Tuners
    - NOS 1989 Richie Sambora Signature Body
    - Seymour Duncan Jazz/Seymour Duncan JB/2018 Custom Shop MJ Warren DeMartini RTM TB
    - DiMarzio 500K Volume/Sambora Slant 5 Way Pickup Selector/2 DPDT/Cannon Jack
    - Top Mount Vintage 1985 Floyd Rose Original with 42mm Block




    The other contender would be my 1988 Kramer Nightswan...for the exact same reasons as the Sambora.

    - Maple Neck with Ebony Freboard, R1 1 9/16” Nut, 22 6100 Jumbo Frets, Schaller Tuners
    - Mahogany Body finished in Blue Sparkle
    - Seymour Duncans: Hot Rail/Custom Shop MJ Evenly Voiced Harmonics/Custom Shop MJ Holdsworth Dual Adjustable Coil TB
    - DiMarzio 500K Volume/3 DPDT Pickup Selectors & Blower Switch/Cannon Jack
    - Top Mount Floyd Rose Original with 42mm Block

    My #1 is by far my IC500 Iceman. Plays like a dreams, sounds incredible, to my ears and just keep going back to it. It has a DD in the bridge and stock Ibby pickip in the neck.

    #2 is the LTD loaded w a C5 and Jazz, bringing up 3rd is the Jackson loaded w a Nazgul and Sentient.

          Hsb - haven't tried an IC500 but did have an ICT700 and it was phenomenal. Sounds like you've got it and your LTD and Jackson done up right and loaded for TONE!

          PFD - Totally dig the Orange Charvy and the Black Strat with Reverse HS is Classic!

              Very nice! Great woods and unique design on the Warmoth and that LP has a lovely top and some tasteful/useful mods.

                The natural one, Franky, has been my number one for years. However, lately I've been playing the blue one. Both partsocasters. Both have the same woods, same neck specs (except construction; Franky's is the old Warmoth Pro construction and the blue one is Vintage Modern construction roasted maple). Same hardware, both loaded with Seymour Duncans.

                      Sounds like you've figured out what you like/what works for you. Cannot go wrong with a Warmoth Build! Both lovely.

                        It would have have to be my Gretsch Orange '96 PRS Custom 22. She's the one I take to every gig.

                        Bought her cheap from a pawn shop. They thought she was an import and I didn't correct them. Pulled the 5 position rotary switch and the Dragon pickups. Put in a three way switch and a set of Duncan Antiquitys with the covers removed.

                        Did the same thing with my Blue '02 PRS Custom 22 hanging on the right side of the PRS group shot. She's a killer too and the double Cream Antiquitys in her feature a stock A2 neck Antiquity and a bridge Antiquity I modded with a Roughcast A4 magnet.

                        Love them both. Blue is prettier but OJ is my favorite. A little more resonant.

                          Sure did. The blue one came about from the Esquire build I had. Couldn't get the body to balance so I sold it fully loaded and got the Strat body. Then discovered the nut width on the other neck was wider than on Franky so it got sold and replaced with the roasted maple. 1 5/8" nut width on the boatneck contour is super comfortable. The natural one has a Chandler body and Warmoth neck. The blue one is all Warmoth. Technically, Tao Turquoise is the color.
