For tone The burst Koss used that he got from Clapton. That one had the fire. The stripped one a close second. For beauty Gladys or the one Ganzler has. For mojo nothing camps in the same park as the one Eric earnest has.

No pics, they've both been photographed to death but Neil's "ol' black" and Duane's goldtop are the 2 I'd walk through fire to play, even if only once.

I have a few holy grails, but I'll name just one for.

The Clapton-Harrison "Lucy" '57. EC recorded his parts on "While my guitar gently weeps" on this one, and it was supposedly George Harrison's favorite guitars, so much so that he made it a top priority to get it back after it was stolen. More than likely George's son owns it now.

9 0291, the Appraisal Burst that spawned the Gabby CC. Best top on any vintage Burst ever, it's in phenomenal shape and Vic says it's an absolute killer player.

I got pretty close with my '18 R9.

If I gotta go "Les Paul," that too is predictable!

90% of it is in the hands friends, remember that. So really we should be talking about holy grail hands. For me, it's a toss up between Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. Give em a modern day standard and they'll make it sound like any Holy Grail LP contender. Hell give Jeff Beck a broomstick with shoe strings and he'll make it sound like a Holy Grail LP. lol
