Hey all,

I'm thinking of studying outside of my homeland. Problem being is I have 3 guitars and I can probably only take 1.

So I wonder what other people would say: Which guitar would you take with you and why?

My Les Paul is out of the question, don't like it so much anymore, I'm not sure wether I will take my fender strat or ibanez RG.

Would love to read your answers!

Though as I don't play that one any more, it's more a sentimental thing now.

This is the one I play I would never sell:


1977 Burny FLG70
2004 EBMM JP6
2016 SE Holcolmb

I probably would leave them all in safe keeping and buy a new- or new to me- guitar in the new country.

Why? First, even though I like some of my guitars more than others, choosing just one in anything besides an emergency would be torture.

Second, by shopping in my new location, I get to experience the thrill of shopping for a new axe while simultaneously getting to know my new surroundings and possibly making connections & friends.

Noooooooooooo, Danny.

That's not how it works. You can't put them all in self storage and choose a new guitar.

It has to be one of your preciouses, this is an emergency. The house is burning down, everyone's safe, you see a clear route to your guitar rack but you know if you dither too long the roof will collapse on you, so you really can only choose one.

Which one do you choose? Otherwise they all burn. THEY ALL BURRRRN!!!

MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAaaaaaaaa... Ahem.

I am probably SOOOOOOO a crispy critter in that scenario.

However, if I'm lucky, I may just remember I keep one of my most favorite guitars- my JKG semihollow- under my bed in its case. Perfect for grab & go.

Always have an emergency guitar lying under your bed. In case your house burns down, you'll always have a companion with you

She will join the prom.

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

if the house is on fire and i only have time to grab one guitar, it's going to be the Ramirez classical, cause it's by far the most expensive.

I have about 15 instruments - mostly guitars, also banjos, mandolins, a sitar

I've got a lot of instruments I treasure, among them a 1930's resonator and a Breedlove mandolin

I'd have to grab my 2010 American Special Telecaster. It's just the guitar that sounds like me

1989 White Gibson Les Paul Custom white with gold hardware, sperzel locking tuners, stock pickups with a faulty pickup switch that does some crazy shit to the tone for reasons beyond my understanding.
Love it. Truly and utterly.

Old 60's Japanese guitar my grandad got for a wedding present. I made an NGD thread on it a while back, I'll go look for pictures.
EDIT:


Yeah, purely sentimental value. This is ahead of my Rhoads and S670, so it really had some competition.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

My only choice, after I got this I realized how bad my other guitars were.

There seems to be more than one scenario here. So, if my house was burning down I would rescue my '63 standard SG. It has lots of sentimental value to me.



If I could keep all my guitars but just take one away with me for a while, I would take my Standard LTD SG with 60's neck profile. Because it's new and needs some use and also is pretty versatile.

I saw those in the gear photo thread- loved the photography! They almost look like miniatures...
