I'm toying with the idea of selling my SSS and replacing it with a new Starcaster, for which I am gassing hard.
It has to be one-in-one-out, and the Super-Sonic is my least played nowadays.
But I'm not sure.

They're very different guitars, but if you could own only one, which would it be?

I really don't like giant hollow bodies like the SC. I wouldn't mid a thinline Mustang. Based on this I would pick the Super Sonic.

I've owned both, and I'll say it.

Starcaster.

Both are excellent instruments, but I just find that my Starcaster was overall a more versatile and comfortable guitar than my Supersonic ever was.

i'd do that starcaster, this dude from the band PANUCCIS PIZZA plays one, and since then i've been really stoked on that model. thought it was uggo at first but it grew on me.


i'd love a bigsby on that shit.

also sometimes a new guitar is a nice change. wish i could do one in one out, but sadly i'm way to attached to all of my stuff.

Played them both and love them ... But I love that Starcaster ... It's a gem .. So's the Super Sonic though... Either one is a score but I voted for the Starcaster .

Actually smaller than a Coronado or ES-335 because of the shape.

The really big ones are 17"-18" width hollow bodies. ES-335s are 16". Even ES-295s are 16", but thicker.

Starcaster.

I found my Super-sonic to be very unbalanced and not comfortable to hold. I gased for the Super-sonic for long time, but was underwhelmed in person.

This thread has been of no use at all.

Anyway, fuck it, I've just picked up a used Starcaster from eBay for 298 delivered with a case. Bargain. Will be with me by the end of this week.

SSS will go.

Sorry mate, it was just a tongue-in-cheek comment on the almost 5050 split of opinion probably lost in translation.
I've enjoyed reading everyone's responses.
