Is this the one that came with the Volkswagon? I remember there was an ad that had Slash in it and one of those First Act guitars that could be plugged into the stereo of the car and you could play through it. I kind of wanted one. (The guitar, not the car)
Yes, it's the VW guitar.

Zero.
All of my guitars are either U.S. or import copies of either 1940's Martin's, and iconic Fenders, Gibson, and Danelectro
( I could never afford the real deal vintage)

Having said that, my FIRST electric guitar, my ( bought new) 1976 Gibson Les Paul Signature ( stolen, College 1980), was a weird LP model that wasn't popular/ didn't sell big ( only $250 then!) would fit OP's query...
That's one of my bucket list guitars. I love them.

I could have/should have bought the Epiphone Les Paul Signature RI ( made just a few years around 2000) , when I came across one ( maybe a Sunburst?). at an All-used music store, about 15 years ago; maybe $450? - but I wanted Gold!

( no $$ for anything right now)

I was going to suggest my Santana Abraxas and Marina's Melody Maker until I remembered either one fits snugly in a Les Paul case.

‘81 Fender Bullet. Currently converted to something like a Tenor. Made a nut for just 4 strings. Has on some very heavy flat-wounds.

This one...

has yet to attain iconic status. And nearly 50 years on (discontinued after just 5 of those years), and with a guy from Kool and the Gang being the only guy I've ever seen play one, iconic status may not be in the cards for the ill-conceived and ill-received Starcaster. Admittedly, I thought WTF? the first time I saw that headstock. But I really like it now, especially as mine came with some free flame maple on the neck:

They are made by Samick in Indonesia, by the way.

All but one of my electrics are not of the "iconic" as defined by the OP, although I think most, if not all, are iconic: 335 shape, USA Epiphone Sheraton and Epi Elitist Riviera 12 string; big body jazz, Heritage H 550, D'Angelico Excell SS. Only my Tele-style partscaster fits the S/T/LP "iconic" definition.

This thread, "The continued cultural significance of Fender guitars", got me thinking, how many of us own and play guitars that aren't in the typical Strat/Tele/LP shape? I have several, not including various cigar box creations and lap guitars. Mine include a odd creation from a GFS closeout body, Mosrite JR style kit, 2 Ibanez Talmans, a headless kit, Global/Harmony H-801, Fender Duo Sonic and a Danelectro '63 Baritone.
Gibson Firebirds, Vs., SGs, JM, Duosonic, Peavey Firenza P90, Samick Regal and Peavey Powerslide
