    This probably wouldn't even be considered a "famous guitar", but I'd have to go with Grant Green's 330. I think he got a more classic jazz tone later when he moved on to the L7, Epi Emperor and D'Aquisto, but for some reason I've always been fascinated by his 330. I even asked his son about it once on FB, whatever happened to it. He said, "Man, I don't know what happened to that guitar, knowing him he probably gave it away". On some of the recordings towards the end of his time with the 330 the fret buzz is almost unbearable. I've wondered if maybe he just moved on to the L7 at that point rather than have the frets replaced, as attitudes about things like that were somewhat different in those days, but who knows. I've always wondered what ever happened to it, though.

    That's not "the" one, though, is it? The iconic AFD fake Les Paul

    Hey! It's only 'famous' to me, but according to UPS, It'll be on the Backlund 'Ol Geetar Wall Of Shame' by suppertime today.

    Trixie didn't pitch a fit when I nonchalantly told her, over the breakfast table this morning, that 'I have a box coming today', and she calmly said "another guitar!" (as more of an exclamation than a question), performed the standard rolleyes and sigh that she does whenever I make such an announcement, but it went over pretty smoothly.

    It probably helped that last week, she bought one of those fancy-schmancy, $500, hyper-gizmo-tronic, runner watches.

    I conveniently failed to mention that the guitar was actually about $172, not $150, but it's a minor detail at this point.

    The mold was certainly broken after this gentleman. Love me a gold Gibson. With p-90s.
    RIP
