    Mine would be an original Stradivarius violin. Did Paganini play one?

    Any Steinway piano played by Oscar Peterson or Ray Charles.

    I already have guitars.

    I'm surprised I'm the first one to mention this, Neil's Old Black Les Paul.
    (though it is in pretty rough shape)

    As it turns out, I own a bass formerly owned by my bass inspiration, the late Dee Murray of the Elton John Band. A Steinberger used on a few EJ albums during the early 80s. It's the bass heard on "I Guess Thats Why They Call It The Blues" and many others from that period.

    Almost ANYTHING from Marty Stuart's collection---Pop Staples' rosewood Tele, The old "Chuck Wagon Gang Eb Chord" Gretsch---But probably the D-45 that Hank gave to Johnny Cash, and Johnny gave to Marty. That's some SERIOUS mojo, right there!

    My bass player has a 1973 telecaster bass that he can't rid of for love or money. It belonged to one of the guys from Oasis. Personally I hope he never sells it. I'm liking Mike Nesmiths paisley tele but I'd probably opt for Waylon's leather clad tele. And that was before I saw it had already been posted.
