Hard to choose between the 335 and the strat, but the Gibson just edges it:

I posted it before in this thread, in its orig state.
It dropped down the rankings a notch or two after that, because the pickups were weak (despite looking cool) and didn't play too well with fuzz.
Last year I took the plunge, enlarged the pickup routes, made a new scratchplate and added a pair of P13s. It's a tough call but I think it's number one again. P13s are sort of like P90s, but clearer and sharper-sounding.

This one has been seeing a lot of action lately.

It is a partsmaster I put together to address some of the things I don't personally care for in a Jazzmaster.

String through body, hard tail tele-style bridge with brass saddles. I really love this guitar right now.

This is a MIJ Fender Esquire. It was a bit too tame for my taste with just the one pu, so I upgraded it with Lollars and changed the bring to a Mustang. This guitar fucking destroys now. I love it.
