pretty keen on the vagina guitars
I found one when I was about 15 at a yard sale with a busted headstock, hollow steel or aluminum body...I'm not sure wich?
Anyway, I bought it for $100 and then sold it later, for $300 not knowing what it was or even who made it.
I've regretted it ever since, and the guy who bought it probably got a good chuckle out of screwing a kid.
A Gretsch Reverend Horton Heat
I guess there is, ya caught me.
I've been a Takamine nut for a long time, all my acoustics are Taks, and one of my electrics. In 2005 they made a limited-edition, OM-sized acoustic guitar, the EF75, all-solid with Brazilian rosewood back and sides, stealth electronics, ebony board with a wide nut, and beautiful wood and abalone trim and binding.
All the run had been bought up by the time I heard about them. No matter, I've never had the money for one anyway. Used ones, when they come up for sale, go quickly, and for around $4,000, sometimes higher. Too much for me, unless I've collected on a big lottery ticket just before I see one for sale, so I doubt I'll ever actually buy one.
They've recently come out with a similar offering in regular production, of course with East Indian Rosewood and I think a bit less bling, still more than $3,000. I doubt I'll ever buy one of those either, because my slightly-scruffy '05 LTD--made of different woods, with different electronics--scratches the OM itch for me well enough, and is a very fine build in its own right, $800 from Guitar Center's used-gear site.
Wanting to, and being able to might not be one and the same.
An early model ES335, I would love to have one. Plus an old Polytone amp.
What's the model that Frank Vignola plays? That would be cool too.
Totally attainable would be a John Scofield Ibanez.
The former(ES335), I'll have to probably win the lottery. But, that's not possible unless I buy a ticket.
The latter(JS Ibanez) is going to involve a little saving up and a trade or two. It'll happen.
Well, that's not really the point I was making but yeah. Sigh.
secretly lust. Well, what's the point of that? We're only talking about guitars, after all.
Whatever it might be, it's been a changing viewpoint for me over the years.
Ricky 12-string? Yeah, that probably fits the program. Seemed to have wanted one, or at least the idea of one, for a long time. But how often do I play a 12-string? Not so often, really. I have a good buddy who has a 60's era 12-string Ricky, ooh, so delicious looking. Never leaves it's case. Web-borrowed photo of another example follows:
Also, something, something in the Gibson ES line. Not a 330's series guy; oh, I've played a few and liked 'em fine. Just don't like the Mickey Mouse ears enough to part with that kind of cash. I have hankered for either the ES-175 or ES-275 or any of the single cut styles and just can't seem to find the right formula. Came close to a real deal ES-175, but at the time, I was funding two kids through university. Well, see, you gonna have to skip a few semesters, 'cuz daddy got a guitar jones. yeah, no. Plus, what color, what burst, what pickups? Can I find something that says gluttony and austerity at the same time? Kinda lean towards a double p-90 set up , something like this:
Had plenty lust for any number of acoustics, but just last year ended up with a slope shouldered dread, the Gibson Advanced Jumbo, so not much lust on that side for the moment.
Yeah, a 50's era tele - that'd be nice. Not much jones for the LP's, but hey, how about I borrow yours?
Gibson Barney Kessel. A guitar that really doesn't fit into what I do, in so far as a guitar can do that, but I still would like one.
I did have an opportunity at one that had been refinished by a friend, for a really great deal. I passed, and still kick myself now and again.
One of those Martin D-45 Authentics would float my boat
These have popped up a few times in this thread and they are indeed really cool.
I have a pretty nice old MIJ Ventura copy out in the garage that needs to be rewired and some binding repair on the headstock.
I almost sold it to a girl who plays Jazz, it should be played but I hate wiring hollowbodies. Besides, only a Gibson is good enough.
I'll also add that I would really like a custom shop Jackson RR.... of the single HB/ 1 vol and OFR variety...
Only reason I won't do it, is because obviously a custom shop Jackson is expensive and I cant play the thing sitting down comfortably.
Oh, a natural 1968 Gibson Les Paul Custom reissue would be groovy, too,
Forgot about this one. You are correct!
The Sadowsky Jim Hall model is a pretty durn classy jazz box. No need for bling.
I don't really need any of these - not particularly suited to my style of play.
Doesn't have to be exact Allen Collins model, but a korina Explorer with tremolo. I don't actually care if it's a Gibson; some of the very early Ibanez korina destroyers were lovely.
Or the Ibanez "Korina Trio"
Speaking of Ibanez, I've always liked the Steve Miller Artist lineup. Don't care for the fuzzy knobs on this one, but otherwise very nice.
Nothing I lust after, secretly, but I really like the look and sound of the Yamaha Revstar 502T; I just don't need another solid body guitar with a pair of P90s fitted.
It is lovely, though.....
Artist Series Ibanez guitars are nice. I certainly don't need one but...
... and a Firebird would be cool. An Epiphone Bonamassa model maybe. I'd probably need an apartment with larger rooms, to be able to store and play it at home.....
Going back to this from page 2 - the guitar is now on Reverb, with a cheaper price... but I'm still resisting!!!
This is my favourite Tele pickguard style. Did it originate on the Merle Haggard model?
