1: 1975 or later Ovation Breadwinner or Deacon. You used to find them in forgotten corners of the Mom & Pop shops for $400 or so, and I could never make the jump when I was younger. Then the guitarist from Rage Against The Machine played one in a video for about 1/2 second, and it came out he used one for recording a song or two, and suddenly they're $1200 and up unless they're trashed. The Eastwood Breadwinner tributes go for around $800, but aren't all they could be, and even $800 is a little too rich for me right now. 2: A regular ol' standard Gibson Les Paul in Black or Natural. I'd love to own one just because the ones I've played have been very nice, but great googly-moogly, I've paid less for the last couple of used cars I've owned. GLPs are nice, but not THAT nice.
