Like the title says we are curious. What gets your heart pumping? Share it with us?

 

I don't want you to just tell us though .. I want to know why you like it. Is it the feel, the sound, the wood, does it hold a special place in your heart?

 

I have two, I have a Gibson SG (my first) and was lusting after a Fender Stratocaster. Growing up the guys I went and saw live all played them. I am a child of the 90's after all. I have recently purchased one and am not sure that I prefer it to my Gibson. I like the way it feels but it very heavy compared to my SG and I don't like I like the floating bridge. Only time will tell.

 

What's your favorite?


\m/(><)\m/
'99 Fender Stratocaster / '12 Gibson SG (Nothing special but they are mine)

My favorite guitar (I own) is the ESP LTD Viper 2005. I swapped the EMG with Duncans and did a few tweaks as well.

Not only does it look awesome and sexy, it feels, plays and sounds terrific. It's one of those guitars you have to struggle with if played upstanding. I like that feeling and would go so far as to say it is the best sounding and playing guitar out of my seven.

 

I also recently achieved a Squier CV 50 Stratocaster and have been blown away since then, due to the low price and overall superb quality of that guitar. Do like it a lot, especially after customizing it.

Normally avaible Guitar would be the ESP M-II Neck Thru with Bareknuckle Juggernauts PUs. 

I think it is a very smooth feeling guitar that still is rather affordable. With some modding (like these PUs and a 5 way switch) you can actually make it a very versatile instrument (the BKPs can be wired as Single coils and Humbucker). It just got one of the slickest string setups i have ever played.

Speaking of Gretsch, I knew there was one I was missing.  This is on my GAS list along with the ESP:

That I own, its my Eastwood GP, a remake of an Ovation Ultra GP. It feels nicely balanced, the neck feels just right and it sounds pretty good too. I have a nice strat also, but i keep going back to the GP for that thick sound

Hey, I have two guitars that I consider to be my main's as well as a classical guitar. Both are Fender Stratocasters. 2011 Am Standard. I've put locking tuners and a Trem-ol-no in it and will replace the block next.

 

1965 Am Vintage with a Callaham bridge. This is my #1.  :D

 

They just have a certain vibe to them that I resonate with.

My favorite guitar of all time is James Hetfields EET FUK explorer. Obviously I've never played it but it was that guitar that made me want to play when I was a kid. It just looked so awesome and even now looking at it makes me want to go play. As far as actual guitars I own, my favorite is my ESP EC-1000 Vintage Black. Plays great, sounds great, and feels great.
