Fender Telecaster with rosewood fretboard. I had a 90s American Standard (my first "good" guitar) for years. Unfortunately I had a bad experience with a matching Strat and sold them both to fund a Gibson ES-335. Instantly regretted selling the Tele and I never warmed up to the 335. I found the humbuckers too hot and compressed but it had a great neck. Sold it over 10 years ago. I'm fully acoustic now but if for some bizarre reason I go electric again it would be a Tele for sure.

I have a Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster and would someday like to have an Epiphone Casino and something like a Godin Kingpin. Other than that, I reserve my jonesin' for acoustics these days.

I'm a Teleacaster guy, tho I don't have one at this time. I also like Gretsch hollow body's i really like that hollow body sound. I have been giving some serious thought to buying a body and building my own Tele

The Kingpin and Songbird on the left are my acoustics but all are played plugged in most of the time. The Telecaster has been getting the most use the past year or so.

I don't play electric anymore, but I've still got my '66 Vox Ultrasonic. It's the ES335 shape in sunburst, and has the best neck I've ever played. The built-in effects are interesting... The Ric 360/12 is the go-to when a 12 string is required.

I like Telecasters and ES-335s. Sometimes I GAS for others, but these two I will always have.

No doubt in the minority, but I am in love with my Rickenbacker 620. A keeper!

I don't own any electric guitars, but if I did it would be a Tele -because, well, it sounds the most like an acoustic

I've owned far more Rickenbacker guitars (5) than any other brand (Gibson-2, Carvin-1, PRS-1) so I guess there's your answer.

I have a LP semi-hollow. I just prefer the LP look and sound.

That said, I had an ES-336 long ago and still regret selling it. Loved the sound of it.

Well, I have seven strats, so I'm kinda leaning in that direction I guess.

I have 37 electrics, 4 basses, and 8 acoustics

Out of all the guitars in my collection, the one that's getting the most love right now is my '03 Tom Anderson Hollow T Drop Top.

Weighs in at about 6 1/2 lbs, and has enough tonal options to cover just about every style of music with authority.

Telecaster. I have a 90s MIM toploader paired with a 65 Princeton Reverb Reissue.

There are others I would not mind owning, but a Tele will always be the electric guitar for me. To me, it really is the archetypal electric guitar. As they say, "Leo got it right the first time."
