    The most beautiful guitar I've even seen personally was a natural with flame maple new Gibson Super 400. I was in a music shop and the guy in there was buying it at the time. I said, "Hey can I have a look at that for a minute?" Unbelievably gorgeous. It was $4500.00 in about 1983. I never saw another one in person.

    Otherwise, the Stratocaster is the most beautiful looking guitar ever designed.

    There are so many beautiful guitars out there! My sheraton 2 pro in red is the most beautiful guitar I own. 20200614_222842.jpg

    I'm also partial to butterscotch blonde teles with a black pickguard.

    3 pickup firebird... the offset, the reverse headstock.. just oozes the rock and roll image and says ‘electric guitar’. Strats are close but the firebird is just edgier.

    I like the look of Les Pauls but don't enjoy playing them in comparison to other guitars. Jaguars & Jazzmasters feel very comfortable.

    Of those offered it’d be Les Paul. not all on the poll but Les Paul, SG, and Telecaster are my favorite electric solid bodies

    If we're doing architecture, the Tele is a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian House.
    The Les Paul can be St. Peter's.

    Sistine Chapel is just a painted ceiling. The building has no exterior detail at all. It's just a church shaped box.

    Fender Strat, only if single coils across the board and large headstock, otherwise Les Paul, but only without the pickguard. If you leave the pickguard on a Les Paul you're a Communist. No arguments, because Communism.

    Cool list and I like that teles represent tractors or jeeps, because I definitely see that comparison.

    I might would list it as:
    ES-335 = Luxury Cars
    Strats = Sports Car
    Teles = Muscle Cars

    I think telecasters when they are done right (that goes for anything) are the most beautiful. So simple, classy, dare I say elegant in it's own way. But I also feel the same way about 335's. They just look classy and elegant.

    Everybody looks cooler playing a telecaster or an ES-335.
