    I'm a little embarrassed at how many guitars and amps I've accumulated over the years... and unfortunately, I love every single one of them, like Solomon and his 1000 wives. People ask me "Do you play them all?" and the answer is, "Yes!" Each day basically I pick one guitar and one amp and that's what I play for that day. Sometimes it varies, but I like spending the day with one guitar and one amp.

    Today it's the ES175 "Figured" that I bought from Joe/Max405 on the forum, and the 90's Polytone Minibrute II.

    What are you playing today?

    Unfortunately at the moment I'm playing an Alienware M18x and HP ZBook 17 thru a wireless connection paying the bills as an IT guy. If I'm lucky later it might be an Epiphone Emperor T thru a Peavey Classic 20 MH....

    Like every day, I'm playing my Wu. I'm also playing my Benedetto Bambino Deluxe for awhile. I tend to rotate guitars for a week or so, but it's really erratic. The Wu stays, though. I rotate through the amps, because my ear keeps changing. I keep the Little Jazz, MB-200, AI Clarus, and Vibrolux Reverb handy. I tend to play mostly through one, until it starts to sound less than perfect, then switch to another for awhile.

    Lawson,

    I spend my early time drinking coffee and reviewing news, email, and texts each morning, and include this forum, as well as the local craigslist for anything in archtops. So, frequently I get inspired by what I read and see, or hear, and react accordingly. For example, your thread could be an inspiration for me to pick up a 175 and plug it into my Minibrute 4, or if i hear a 125 thread, like DB's, grab my 125. It is situational with me. Left on my own, probably grab the Campellone, L7, L5P, or Trenier, likely acoustically, or through my SeQuel Skoter, a small tube amp.

    Never a problem for me. I have one guitar (2014 American Standard w/AlNiCo 2 pickups from Seymour Duncan) and one amp ( Traynor YGL 1). There's never a choice. I don't really want to have to choose every day. I can cover almost everything with my set up.

    Since I’ve recently parted with my Epi 175 and my 345 is in desperate need of a refret, I’ve been plunkin around on my CV Tele through my Katana 100w and lovin every minute of it. What a great guitar. Guitar and Amp of the Day-b2f59308-94f8-43b8-8881-d857c34009fd-jpgGuitar and Amp of the Day-6d3eb9c6-e7ce-4518-b87a-1c3fac0340f5-jpg

    Like they said in the American Old West: Beware the man who wears only one gun. He certainly knows how to use it.

    My Super 400CES through a Raezor's Edge Twin 8. You got Kenny and Wes covered if I could only get the chops up to that speed.

    Tonight, I'm going to play my Heritage made Gretsch Eldorado. It has a very nice acoustic tone.

    Today, this one -- D'Angelico Ex DC. I was playing into my computer today (GarageBand, "Blackface" amp sim), but for the most part of late I've been playing into my Roland MicroCube (hard to use a "real" amp when everybody's home), or playing acoustic.

    A new day... today it'll be the 2015 Gibson L5ces and the Fender Princeton Reverb Reissue "Sweetwater Edition" with tweed and a 12" Cannabis Rex. This is about the closest I ever get to cannabis... and it's exhilarating!

    Guitar bought from a forum member-great guitar, great price, great interaction. Amp bought at the recommendation of another forum member who then gave me out of sheer generosity a box of tubes to play with. Result, these two alone would be guitar heaven forever.

    L-S, I love how that L-5 walks all over that Les Paul (blueprint on the floor)!
    Nice photo. What a great pair!
