    I'd be extremely happy with a 50 year old Martin D28.

    I think mine would be a Gretsch 6120. I love Chet Atkins and Brian Setzer, but for me costs way too much to not be my go to guitar. I can grab almost any LP or Tele and get what I want and even though I could afford it, I don't feel like fighting with a big hollow body for tone or feel.

    Just about any 12 string.

    I wouldn't mind a casino coup, or a white les Paul custom.
    just brought a few charvels, so I'm not in the market for anything.

    I've bought most everything I have wanted except for a Jackson Rob Cavestany Custom. I just want one.

    A sky blue USA Jackson would be very cool. Most likely will never happen though. 335 and a Gretsch for me too.

    D@mn ...this is really giving me GAS.

    One I have been looking for years is a '70s Guild F-50 R (jumbo rosewood acoustic).

    I am pretty blessed to have about everything I want. Of course something new always pops up!! On my current list is a PRS Santana I, a PRS DGT, and a PRS Brett Mason for my PRS collection. Of those three, it is the Brett Mason that appeals to me the most - it offers something different. The Santana and DGT would just be cool - they are low on the pole....

    Some others I want, for my Americana recording project, would be a 12-string Gretsch, and an Airline....not sure between a 59 1P or a 59 2P. Usually I use a Gretsch and stay on the bridge pickup, so.....

    But, as of today, that's the list.

    A buddy of mine used to have a '65 Firebird V with reverse body & non-reverse headstock; I don't think that would ever be my first reach-for, but I'd love to have one.

    I'd like another Ric 360-12. I had one for a long time, it was languishing so I moved it. I wish I hadn't.

    I want an old school BCR Mockingbird. There is a good chance it would end up being my #1 though.

    I've always wanted the Red Gibson in this video. I can't remember what it's called but it sounds awesome!!



    Oh, and the girls it comes with too!

    Adam...I think you said you hated me a little for this. :cheers::rofl::thumbs:

    I gotta admit, its been in the case a lot lately. It and Little Dirty Shirley aren't getting along too well. I even plugged the BJr into the Marshall cab and the Mock into it, and it was much better. :wtf: It sounded heavenly when I first got the Friedman. Good quality amp like that and it doesn't get along with a Mockingbird? I don't get it.

    For me and a guitar that I want but wouldn't be an everyday player, I think I would want a National Tricone.

    I just got a "must have" that I forgot all about - A German-made Warwick Corvette FNA Jazzman bass. SUPER pumped about this one. It plays and sounds heavenly. With the MM and J pickups, active or passive electronics, and three band EQ there isn't much this bass can't do.

    A guitar I want to have that I know would not be my No.1 (as a mostly blues player)....

    A real 1979 Ibanez PS10 (Paul Stanley). Have no use for it what so ever, just think they are F-in cool
