If a Gibson ES 335 or Fender Telecaster are not on your list, go home.
Strat, Tele, SG, Les Paul, 335, ES-175, Explorer, Vee... Classic Classics!!
Charvel Super-Strats, Jackson Soloist, Steinberger, Ibanez RG-570... Modern Classics!!
Jazz Bass, Precision Bass, & Jazzmaster too..!!
Remember when Guitar Player Magazine used to sell prints of guitar-centric pen & ink drawings ?
About 75-76 they offered one called Super Axe Heaven , I wish I'd got the resources together to buy it back then , but I was a kid ...pre internet , pre checkbook , pre drivers license , pre puberty (?)
The drawing featured (and I dont remember the exact order) a Tele, Strat, SG, Les Paul and a Flyin V . They were lined up one behind the other ,as if in formation , suspended in the cosmos
THIS became my life's goal at age 12 . I DONE IT ! I ascended to Super Axe Heaven ! My life has been a success !!
For me? 2 Les Pauls, a Strat and an acoustic/electric.
Firebird should be an essential requirement.
I guess I still need a real Strat & a 335.
If I could only keep one, it would be my magic mojo Hondo.
I think a Strat and a Les Paul are a must have for electric guitarist. I'd say beyond those two a ES-335 for a hollow body option and you're set.
I don't view any other guitars as essential besides those 3 imho. I'm sure many might substitute the Strat for a Tele but I personally think Strats are essential.

Kay, Stella, National, Regal, Harmony......you know, the essential's.
Brand and model are optional according to taste and playing style.
But every guitarist should have a six string acoustic guitar and an electric guitar.
The relative validity of this argument comes down to how seriously one contends their studio/basement must be littered with (at least) 3 different Marshalls and Fenders, an Orange, a Hiwatt, and a Vox before giving this any credibility... and amps figure far more prominently than guitars once you achieve a certain build quality across the board.
That you can astound newbs with the fact that Jimmy used a tele exclusively during the formation of LZ 1 and intermittently throughout is as much an argument of the Tele’s superfluousness in later rock as it is an endorsement of its versatility.
how essential is nuance?
John 5 could play Industrial on a tele and Some Nashville guitar shop asshole did a pretentious albeit compelling chicken pickin on a Norlin era V in his stupid video sales ad.
strat, tele, acoustic, 12 acoustic, les paul. and a super strat.
possible a 335. the top iconic line up.
there are others as favorites but they arent iconic essentials.
All i need is some tasty waves, a cool buzz and I'm fine....
I’m going kind of minimalist, so my big 3:
Gibson Les Paul
