    For all the money in the world? Vic Flick's guitar, on which the bond theme was recorded:

    I'd like to own Jimi Hendrix's 1968 Stratocaster, which is currently owned by Paul Allen.

    If I had it, I'd sell it, get myself out of debt, and buy a passel of cheap guitars that I wouldn't be afraid to play!

    I've played a couple of them. Jay Jay French from Twisted Sister is a big fan of Juha's guitars, and he owns a Mojo and had a Duke commissioned for auction in his 'Pinkburst Project' to benefit Uveitis research.

    I got to play them both. Extremely comfortable to play, incredibly well-built. Amazing attention to detail. Top notch work all around.

    This Beauregard faceted archtop looks so amazing.

    I also want one of these Charlie Christian swing machines.

    This little hit maker would be fun to have to.

    Lucky man... I know they're not the only gig out there doing what they do the ut I've just always heard such good things about them so... I LOVE that they let you choose down to the tuning and intonation style as well as them having a good spread of neck shapes... one of the things that makes it so hard for me to find a suitable backup for my 72 Deluxe is no other Tele out there has a 12" neck radius and that nice shape it has which I have apparently grown VERY accustomed to aye.

    Thanks for the feedback mate.

    Cheers

    Dave

    i created that word. i mentioned it to jim jannard when i was delivering 5 guitars to him for $135,000.00 cash. i heard he had the word patented, and that it was later in a block-buster movie.

    My favorite body style has always been the Les Paul Jr double cutaway (only with a carved top), so I have always had a soft spot for Hamers and PRS Santanas. Not quite soft enough to shell out the pennies for either one, though. Yet...

    There may not be another, but I'm not buying Page's account of what happened to this guitar and why he stopped using it.

    Meanwhile, if there's any guitar I could own, I have it in my 1960 Telecaster "Twinkie".

    For me, a Jagstang, but it would have to be one from '96, not the reissue.
