    Fallingwater is the one that is built over the river.

    Usonian houses were a few dozen homes Wright designed in the 50's for ordinary folks with limited budgets. They are small jewel boxes of simple materials.

    Here are a representative pair.

    Fender was pretty close with the Stratocaster - but Kramer is even better with the added curvature at the top of the body.

    For me I’d say jazzmaster as well has the best aesthetics
    It’s like a Cadillac or hot rod, even the sweeps and curves make it appear to be flying through space while sitting still

    I think a Forrest Lee Jr. Tele is way better looking than any of the choices in the poll. Especially the Black and gold Paisley, and the Silver and Blue Paisley.

    It's one of these, depending on the day of the week:
    -- Strat
    -- Tele
    -- Pre-war archtop (favorite: Epiphone DeLuxe, runner-up the venerable L-5; love ES-150s too)
    -- ES-330 / Casino … something about those P90s.

    Right now it's strat, so that's what I voted.

    Gibson ES-335 has my vote. Plays great, sounds glorious, and its looks just ooze class...

    … just to give you an exact idea of how gorgeous a late 30s DeLuxe is… ah, Epi, Epi why did you have to go so young…

    Beat me to it.

    You could put a Gibson Byrdland or L5 in second place.
