    The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.

    P90 Les Paul (goldtop or custom)
    Tele
    PRS standard 22

    Funny that I'm not including an SG in that when currently that's my only decent guitar.

    One: LP-alike*
    Two: LP & ES-330
    Three: LP, ES-330, SG Jr

    *after years of being a strat and PRS user, finally owning a proper LP feels like coming home!
    And by return after years of being a Strat player, that blue Jazzmaster felt like home ! Gah !

    I agree. "Ideal" varies according to the individual engagement. 

    I'm going to cheat by providing bass guitar answers.
    1) P type with flatwound strings
    2) J type with roundwound strings
    3) Something fretless

    Never played a fretless but totally agree on your first and second choices!

  • If a deputising gig or recording session warranted a Stingray or a Rickenbacker, I would carry those.

    Just out of interest, where would a P with rounds come in your list? Close to the top or way down after different basses?

    Astonishing strat consensus emerging!
    Quite surprising really, I'd have thought there would be more LP first choices.

    I reckon if this poll was taken on a large scale, the Strat and LP would be quite firmly the top 2 choices.

    I've got a PRS Custom 24 and a Strat. When I bought the PRS I didn't know as much about guitars as I do now and, if I could go back, I'd have got a Les Paul instead. Being a 2-humbucker guitar, though, it's close enough to an LP for me to hold back actually buying a Les Paul for the time being. Not that the Custom 24 is bad in any way; being the SE version it was a lot cheaper than a Standard LP even after the upgrades and it doesn't suffer from tuning problems that I hear a lot about Gibsons.

    job jobbed.
    Even though you've totted up six guitars, it's great to know your ideal includes three Les Pauls. Top man.

    Edit:

    Should have said
    Les Paul
    Les Paul + Strat
    Les Paul + Strat + something a bit spesh

    I have three electrics.  My tele is number 1, then joint between my strat and es335-alike.  I haven't really played a jagua or jazzmaster and am feeling the temptation, so one of those could in theory replace the strat at some point.

    1) My Strat
    2) My Strat and my Blackmachine
    3) My Strat, my Blackmachine, my Flying V.

    That's in order of usefulness, not preference... I love them all but out of those three, the Strat is probably the one I love the least :lol:

    This, but Teuffel Birdfishes.
    Brilliant idea. lol

    I'd chuck a Tesla 7-string in there to keep things interesting though. I've never played any Teuffel stuff but I would love to try some. I bet they're amazing.

    Strat, Tele, Les Paul of course.
    Same for me, which is what I have now. 

    If I was forced to keep just one it would be the Tele.

    1) One in Open G
    2) One in Open G, one in DBbDFCA
    3) One in Open G, one in DBbDFCA and one in standard

    Not so bothered about the guitars although a bridge humbucker or P90, and a vibrato are preferable

    Bass would be easy for me.

    1 - Rickenbacker 4001
    2 - don't need two basses.

    1. Nice semi-acoustic - Ibanez AS, Yamaha SA, or actual 335 of course
    2. Archtop jazz type - my Ibanez JP20 would do nicely, maybe a Benedetto or something if money no object
    3. A modern strat type (red-silver-blue Lace Sensors maybe), or nice 22 fret HSH guitar (Anderson/Suhr or similar)
