Three guitars walked into a bar…post yer trios here

My three best and most used electric guitars.

A Squire CVC 60s Telecaster that I got a couple of years back.

My '79 7628 Committee that was my first and, for a long time, only electric guitar.

The one I play the most and always reach for first is the 5120 with a chambered Compton and HS Filtertrons.

All three got played this morning, and a bunch yesterday, too. There's definitely some overlap between all three, but each sounds a bit more different than similar to either other.

Cloud 9 on the right…featherlight and perfect for me.

Work in progress in the middle. Robert Cray neck on an Ice Blue Mexican Stratocaster body. I’ve got a buddy that’s dying to try the Plek so waiting for our road trip to bring this one to life.

To the left is a Squier that I got for a song when I was in a Classic Vibe frenzy last year. No intention of keeping it but it plays very nice (when it has strings). Just too lazy to list it and always hesitant to get rid of a player🫤.
