SG Standard Celebrity Ltd Edition, Ebony fretboard
68 LP Custom,.. with custom order factory installed Grover tuners.
Not rare by comparison to many of the previous posts but here's mine:
2016 Fender Magnificent 7 1/500
I also have a matching Tele Magnificent 7 which is 1/500 as well
I had one of these for about 15 years, very nice guitar.
my rarest would have to be my jeff tweedy signature sg. i think i read somewhere that only about 300-ish were made. they seem to jump in value every year. not only is the blue finish and vibrola super cool, the underwound pickups sound awesome!
rocking chief Wahoo go tribe , well maybe next year
I've got one made in '66. Possibly my rarest guitar.
the rarest Ive owned
Ibanez PF 160 1/60 made
Ibanez MC3000 1/15 (i believe)
Ibanez AR500 1/25 from 81 (sunburst finish)
Well I sold off my Recording yesterday so it’s time to update.
I guess my next rarest would be my 1980 BC Rich Mockingbird
Definitely not “rare” as just the model, but with these old USA BCRs each one is like a snowflake. Several types of woods used, and in countless combinations.
Probably the Zvex Drip but I don't see many Moog E1s around either.
Cool guitars, back in the late 70's early 80's, I had a trio, all late 70 builds, Mockingbird, Eagle & Seagull.
The Seagull had Sergio pick ups. Smoking hot guitar.
Wish I had been able to keep em, but Strats & Les Pauls were calling out to me.
I've been blessed with a trio of lovelies that are unique and rare in their own ways..
The first one is a 1982 Candy Apple Red Standard that was made for only a couple years and limited to 400.
I have number 23. Shaw pickups were another novelty.

The second is my Guild Advanced Pilot bass.
Darbass by DarrellV posted May 4, 2017 at 10:41 AM
There were many Pilot basses made but most were painted and equipped with EMG pickups. I used to visit a Guild forum and check out all the pilot bass owners. Turns out that for all the pilots made, only about one in ten were ordered as Advanced Pilots.
These had flamed or quilted maple bodies, ebony bound fret boards and Bartolini active pickups.
Made in Westerly RI USA.
The plant is long gone and the brand has been sold. Guild doesn't even make basses anymore (altho it looks like the Starfire has been re-issued lately... not USA made)
So it is pretty much un-replaceable.
The last one is a CF-100 acoustic from 1958.
1957-59 CF 100 And Guild SB-950 Advanced Pilot. Both rare and irreplaceable gems. The CF-100 was a very special gift from its first owner of over 50 by DarrellV posted Nov 7, 2016 at 4:31 PM
Turns out they are collectable, I had no idea, they were only made for a few years and didn't sell a ton.
New Gift from original owner! CF-100 in original case! by DarrellV posted Nov 11, 2016 at 12:57 PM
late 30's kalamazoo parlor
BC Rich thing set me off on a hunt for old photos, I could only find one pic of a BC Rich. Pretty cool old SG there too.
77 seagull in a dark tobacco sunburst, pic taken late 70's.
I've tried to buy back that guitar a few times. but no go.
apologies for going all nostalgic.
Of my "old collection", dunno. Depends on how you define "rare". I had a LP Std Faded that left the factory with the wrong pickups in it. One of maybe 75 or so. I'd call that rare. Had an old Guild S-100 with factory phase reverse switch. Don't see to many of those these days. Had a 79 Strat, by definition, rare-ish.
In today's collection of "two", the SG Classic signed by Pete Townshend on the back of the headstock. One hundred percent keeper there.
Well since there are only 20 of these, I’m going to go with this one:
"Under the bed" mint condition 69 LP Custom. Sounds as good as it looks too.
My garage-build Telecaster
If you don't count that, it would either be my Custom shop 54 RI Strat or my '90s Epiphone LP Snakepit
THE GRETSCH G6121-1955
