I'd have to say it is this recent one:

'81 1 piece ST80


This thing is just a beauty. Best strat I've ever played, it just sounds and plays so good!

My guitar buying has slowed quite a bit over the past few years.
I have purchased only four guitars this year and not intending to purchase any more.
Of course if the right guitar popped up I might be tempted and there are still about 10 weeks left to the year


My favorite for 2018 is my (2011) Bacchus Classic Series BLP-FM Relic.
The weight is so very close to perfect, the lumber is amazing, and the neck is perfect for my playing. This was a great purchase for me, for a Les Paul.


So, what cha got? What guitar is your most favorite guitar you purchased in 2108?



Lots of very nice guitars in this thread


I was tempted & purchased a Bacchus Strat; the price point was just too good IMO.
It's a Vintage Series example that looks like the 'Charley' Strat that SRV got from Charley Wirz.
This one looks all original & in excellent condition, just from looking at the photos.
It has white body & head stock face, lipstick pickups, hard tail bridge (no tremolo) and it looks like the fingerboard is Madagascar rosewood.

Will it be my favorite for 2018? Probably not because my wallet just got a bit lighter.

I just got this yesterday and still need to wire it up with 2 non-EMG humbuckers but I think this will be the one for 2018. 1981 Super Real, likely an 1800 model. Got it from the Usednet booth at the Tokyo Musical Instrument Fair yesterday with a Super Real hard case, all for the cost of a new effect pedal.


"likely an 1800 model...with a Super Real hard case...for the cost of a new effect pedal."


Wulfman for the win on who got the best deal in 2018!

LOL I didn't know this was a competition but rather thought it would be nice for folks to share their experiences for 2018.

IMO every guitar here is the 'winner'

I like Harold's 1800; very interesting top on that example. Looks like it could be a 'blister' top

I wish it had the original Dry Z pups; I'm so sorry Harold
