    Most iconic guitarists are forever linked with a particular guitar.
    Hendrix = Strat.
    Setzer = Gretsch.
    Or does it?

    Any other odd pairings?

    Somewhere I have a picture of SRV with a Les Paul. He should have played them more, it looked good on him.

    What the heck is that picture?
    A dark-skinned lefty so I assume it is Hendrix.

    I'm sure a lot of you know he was fond of these but it's pretty far from his 'iconic' look...

    And Keith, who is technically famous for playing just about every type of guitar ever.

    He just looks too neat in this picture..
