Which three would you choose?
1. Van Halen's Frankenstein
2. Clarence's tele
3. Stevie Ray Vaughan's #1
If there was a number 4: Clapton's Blackie.
I'd really be fine with just those two I reckon.
All original of these, not reissue:
Lonnie Macks Vee
Any of Chet Atkins personal gits
Neil Young’s Old Black
Keith Richards’ Micawber
Bob Dylan’s Gibson Nick Lucas
Mick Green's Tele
Wilko's Tele from the 'Down By The Jetty' sessions
Jimmy Page's Les Paul
David Gilmour's Black Strat
Larry Carlton's 335
Lennon's natural/stripped Casino
Malcolm Young’s Gretsch
Leslie West’s Junior
Larry Carlton’s 335
Yeah - gilmour, keef, evh, srv, Rory, are prolly better choices, but I gotta be different!
+1 on Garcia's Alligator Strat
My list would continue with Clapton's blackie, Carlton's 335, etc..
The tones Garcia got with his alligator on the Europe '72 album are majestic, my favorite Dead era
Srv's no. 1
I'd want the rig that went with them as well, but:
Prince's Hohner "tele"
Jimi's Woodstock Strat
Johnny Ramone's first Mosrite
I have. It was strung with very, very heavy strings and tuned low. He used a capo to get it back up to standard pitch.
Bob Marley 70's LP special................Robert Johnsons accoustic...............Niccolo Paganini's Gennaro Fabricatore (probably similar to this one)
I have played 3 iconic guitars, but not my top three.
I played Trigger in 1975, and 2008.
I played SRV’s #1 in 1983-84, unplugged after a brand new re-fret.
I played Albert Collins’ Tele, unplugged in 1986.
My 3 are:
Billy Gibbons’ Pearly Gates.
Peter Green/Gary Moore’s Les Paul.
George Harrison’s Rosewood Tele.
First Runner Up - Dickey Betts’ Goldie.
I am envious to say the least !
I do the same thing with my Gibson scale length gits. But I didn't know Lonnie did it .
Garcia's Rick Turner Peanut, which turns out to be the incredible tone on Skull and Roses. All these years thought it was an SG!
Seems I saw a thread recently about how folks don't care for acoustics. I thought of Trigger and figured I had better stay away from said thread. I'm jealous Bill, damned Jealous !
