I think I would be frozen into inaction by the possibilities.
I always wanted a black falcon
Gibson Super 400. Playing one is like dancing with a fat lady.
First thing I would buy would be a vintage amp of sorts, and a house big enough i could play as loud as I wanted, then we can talk about vintage guitars.
A superior man cave -- most definitely!
Acoustic - Bourgeois "Bourgeois Blues" ladder braced dread, lotsa honk for slide.
Electric - probably a Warmoth bitsa, since resale value wouldn't be an issue if I won big $. - Chambered body, 2*P90 hardtail
I've been jonesing for a Rickenbacker 12 string lately, but I'd probably go with a big acoustic jazz box first, maybe with a mini HB.
+1 to the 12 string Rick but first I'd call up Mr. Kirn.
1966 Telecaster blonde
1968 Gibson Les Paul Custom.
LOL .. why one?
I'd start of with a vintage 330, 335 and L5 ... then we need something with P90s as well and lets not forget some sort of large hollow Gretsch with a bigsby.
The Ibanez JSM100, GB10, PM200 ... and then something shreddy like a couple of Vai's and a 8-string Abasi, maybe one of the Gilberts.
Then some Martins or Taylors or Gibsons or ...
And we haven't even started looking at Fenders (or Sadowskys or ... )
But ok ... if just one, then it would be a ES-335 that is no younger than from 1963.
Not many more guitars. I'd buy a vintage SG (maybe a 67 standard), a 55 or 56 blond telecaster. A couple of Classic Series 50's strats. One tube amp or two. One or two nice acoustics, probably Martin.
I'd put my money on a big house where I could call my friends and jam at any time of the day or night without bothering anyone in outer civilization. I'd invest in tape machines, analog studio gear, microphones and instruments.
if I won the lottery, a guitar would be the last thing I'd be looking at.....
Win this $500 million Powerball and you can buy the whole Fender company.
Without question - a '59 Les Paul.
I know it's not a guitar, but I've been wanting another uke for a little while now, so I'd probably end up ordering a nice myrtle Mya Moe tenor. If I have to buy a guitar with my lottery winnings, I guess I'd go for a J45...they have this nice used one at my local Guitar Center that I've gone back to play more than once.
Well if Guitar Center won't sell me the original Blackie, and Paul Allen won't sell me Brownie, then I guess I could suffer with the $30k Blackie reproduction... for starters.
a custom shop white falcon.
"Dave" @ Dave's Guitars would become a very good friend.
A 58 Flying V (big Lonnie Mack fan)...then a '83 Korina Reissue Flying V that I can actually take out in public and play! Oh, and a 56 Gretsch 6120 w/Bigsby. Blonde '58 ES-335 dot neck would be nice...oh, and a tweed Bassman, plexi 50 watt Marshall, a Super Reverb. Then, a house out in the boonies with a separate man cave for all of this.
Oh, and a 55 Les Paul Gold Top. That oughta do it for a while...
