    +1 on Garcia's Alligator Strat
    Garcia's Wolf
    Garcia's Tiger

    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

    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.

    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 Alligator
    Garcia's Wolf
    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 !
