I can't decide which is my favorite, so I'll sit this one out.
I am not too sentimental about gear, though I have at least one thing I really love. So I would probably trade whatever it took for an L5.
I pretty much have everything I want.
Unfortunately my favorite guitar has about $150 cash value & infinite sentimental value, so I just couldn't part with it. I don't think I have a favorite famous guitar, more just favorite players, so maybe all my other guitars for any of James Hetfield's guitars?
One of the 2 or 3 which has a sentimental value. probably a fender mustang offered to me by my parents, and which has been with me for a long time and was played live quite a bit.
If I can’t just turn around and sell it, I don’t have much use in anyone else’s famous guitar.
Garcia's Wolf. I can always get back to the one that's my current favorite (whatever that is...). I know, I can go on and on about how magical the tone, but it's all a bunch of hooey compared to having Wolf to play every day...
All 4 of my electrics and both of my acoustics are keepers but I’d trade any of them for the right guitar.
It likely wouldn’t be a vintage instrument. I don’t really like the neck profiles, dimensions on 50s era Fenders or the big rounded necks of the 50s Les Paul’s.
On the other hand, a pristine, 60s pre-CBS Fender Strat or Tele might be on the table.
My likely choice might be a masterbuilt Strat, Les Paul or ES 335 built exactly the way I would want it.
Well played Sir.
Ditch the EBO! No hesitation!
For a dot neck 335, a Les Paul Burst, a wraptail Les Paul, a slab board Strat, a Broadcaster/No aster/early Tele, T-Bones ES5, the boat neck 50s Strat I DIDN'T BUY for $250 when I was 16.....there are many.
No flipping allowed!
But, you have posted one of my favourite guitar performances of all time, Rolf Lislevand just jamming on some old axe in a back room. Maybe my all time favourite.
As for the OP question, that's a hard one... ultimately it has be sound and play better... like another poster said, if I could taste and try first, yeah...
there's a few I want to try out:
John Lennon's Epi.
Neil Young's Hank Williams D-28 Martin
Jimi's best Strat - I would have to set it up righty?
Jimmy's 59 LP
Norman Blake's Gibson or D-18
I give up, I love my guitars;
if I could upgrade to a 'better' (to me) version, I would...
I don't really care owned them previously... obviously we know those guitars above have been played and well looked after and sound pretty good!
the list goes on.
Better hurry if you want a wraptail, those seem to become fewer and fewer.
Course Bursts keep multiplying!
I would sell a kidney before letting my #1 go.
You have a point. I thought of fitting a bridge pickup, but trading it for an EB2 would rock my world!
I'd have to go with Frankie. Hard to get any more iconic than that.
