I have a Seagull cedar folk acoustic guitar. A used black Gibson SG, nothing special, I think it retailed for $900 and I bought it for $500. I saw it and decided I needed to have it. It sings and rings and the neck pickup sounds better and less muddy than I expected. Smooth and mellow.
And the last guitar I bought is a G&L telecaster. I wanted to get one that was American made with a maple fretboard and natural finish. This one was sitting there for $400. Korean, but still swamp ash. Used but meticulously cared-for. Original pickups replaced by Seymour Duncans. Heavy as fuck and ballsy as hell.
Oh, and I was a trumpet fag in the high school band(s).
I've got a Gibson SG, two Strats, one Tele and three acoustics including two Fenders; a solid Sitka spruce top, another that's amplified with an onboard EQ that feeds back like a bitch and one laminate beater from Rogue I got for tailgate camping.
