    Hmmm.
    I think I'll try staying away from the predictable '58/'59 Lester or '56/'57 Strat, fantastic as that would be (if only...!).


    In no particular order...

    -- Tele. Don't have one, always kinda wanted one but unlikely it would ever be No. 1.

    -- Rickenbacker 12-string. Hell yeah.

    -- Actually, even a nice acoustic / electroacoustic 12 would do at this point.

    -- A nice, big, hand-carved, NY f-hole archtop from any one of several luthiers. Just because.
    Complete pie-in-the-sky, obviously but such a great thing to have!

    -- Or maybe an early Gibson L5 or Super400. Mmmmmmmm... (might have to make do with an Epiphone Masterbilt Zenith or Deluxe instead).


    I'd also say an ES Les Paul, but I have a suspicion that one of those could sneak in and try to be No. 1 (!).

    great score :dude: I'm in the same boat, I can't justify spending big bucks on a jazz guitar, but I would like to have a nice one to play around with. These Epis definitely give Gibsons a run for the money

    IMG_2442.JPG IMG_4883.JPG IMG_4882.JPG I'm fortunate to own most of the guitars I've lusted after over the years (a real 59 burst not in the cards), and truth be told, my guitar buying days are behind me.

    Still, I'd love to have a white blonde 58 Reissue tele, ditto for a white blonde custom shop 51 precision bass. A CS 62 SG with a maestro would be on the list too.

    Doubtful any of those will ever happen.

    I’m a Gibson guy but I love a good strat tone. Unfortunately I can’t get a good strat tone or play one well so that’s out. My main axe is a ‘56 jr that is special and surprisingly versatile, I have a firebird that is my version of a “strat”, an sg and an R7. It’s funny how diff the sg and les paul are especially in neck and middle position. I’m gonna say I’d take a 335 knowing there is a very slim chance it rises to the top of the heap just because the body is so big. I’d like to have 3 variations of the 2 humbucker Gibson.

    I missed a wonderful OM21L a few months ago, wanted it but talked myself out of it, usual stuff " do you need another guitar ? ", the next day it was gone. Have come by others, all good, but so far none has spoke to me the same way that guitar did.

    Theres a lesson learned, when the right "one " comes by theres gonna be no farting about, its coming home with me

    Bought a few more in 2017, this one is still on the list - though it probably never will get true

    I want 2 guitars-
    1. The first one is a guitar that makes up for all my weaknesses as a player. I have not found it.
    2. I am going to apologize up front for this- I want a PRS that I do not feel I have to rip the pups out of. I love everything about PRSs but the pups. Although I hear from friends that the 85/15s will make me happy. If true then I will open my wallet like a sailor on shore leave.

    I would like a Moffa hollow or semi hollow.
    I used to have an Eric Johnson stratocaster that I sold years ago, I wouldn't mind having another.
