A Veleno, maybe? Keith Levene of PiL produced his ultra-sustained sound playing a Veleno. Here's a video about one of the first guitars made by John Veleno for Marc Bolan.

My Strat. Wildwood '10' Fender 57 Re-issue. Wildwood is a premier Fender dealer in Colorado who can get them to build small runs to their specs. This is a 57 all the way except instead of the period correct 7.5" fret radius it's a more modern 10". Upgrades I've made are putting in a 12 year old set of Suhr V60LP pickups (best strat pups ever IMO) and a Callaham bridge assembly with the Gilmour shorter length trem arm. The stock length gets in the way for me. And the bridge block has a nylon insert so the arm doesn't wiggle at all.

Super lightweight and resonant one piece ash body. She's a sweet ride!

I also got a white fender reissue of the 1956 stratocaster, made in 2012. I love it

Another thing which is not "correct" on my guitar, and probably not on yours, is the 5-step pickup selector switch which I believe didn't exist back then. Of course I'm happy to have it anyways.

The guitar I've played most lately is a Godin Acousticaster that I bought used (at a very reasonable price) and got fixed up. It sounds friggin amazing. I love the telecaster shape and it's just really comfy and easy to play as well. It's the perfect electro-acoustic .. I took it to a gig with the band last december and it was just the best gig I ever played. I've never been that happy with a guitar on stage. Now I just want their nylon version as well ("multiac") which I've seen Al Di Meola (I'm a fan) plays.

Here's a picture so you can see what it looks like (not of mine though).

That's a toughie.

I'm really far too indecisive to say a definite favorite. Even out of the ones I own my favorites switch every now and then.

Generally I prefer anything twangy or jangly, like Fenders and Gretschs. I'm also a fan of Teiscos.

Out of the guitars I own, my favorite feel-wise and tone-wise (for Surf and anything Fuzzy) is my Teisco ET-210n

I'd post a pic but not quite there yet, sadly.

My Tele has been giving me some strange grief lately. I've snapped two A strings on the saddle (both during gigs) and an E once, with less than a few week old strings, always in the same spot. Did some research and apparently every once in a while during manufacturing something will slip and create a small bur on the saddle, which will quite literally cut your string like a knife over time, especially with frequent palm muting. Took it into the local shop and had it looked at, he plopped it down on his bench, filed down the saddle a bit, and lubed it with graphite.

Gig tonight, two day old strings (although thoroughly stretched and warmed up), the moment of truth, Lord have mercy on my two most important strings.

I had a problem like that with my Schecter. I was using it for gigs, and it was my ONLY guitar at the time, so when the E popped, I'd have to just play through. I'm pretty fast at restringing though, so I'd be ready with a short break after the tune was over. It kept happening until I got fed up and did some filing. Smooth sailing after that, so you should be all good.

Yeah first time it happened a fella from the band before us noticed, quickly ran over to his gear and passed me his guitar to finish the set, nice dude. We won't be forgetting a spare guitar this time in case the problem returns.

Yup. Missed that detail. 5 way instead of the stock 3 way. Gotta have those two quack positions!

That Godin is gorgeous.

It's just great in every way .. I've been keeping an eye on the used market in Norway and they do show up now and then at very reasonable prices. If they all play and sound like the one I have, I'd recommend them to any guitarist.

edit :

By the way, I also got an original case for my fender and every time I open it, I get a solid whiff of that finish (nitro I guess?). That strat even smells heavenly!
