    We all have them, sometimes it’s places you want to see, cars you want to own, or in this case... Guitars you want to own.

    I will put a loose restraint on this list- it has to be a guitar that you can feasibly acquire. There might be someone here who can afford Jimi’s Monterrey strat, but that’s not the point of this exercise.

    I have too many as it is, (I often snap up cheap ones to tinker with) and that’s partially what’s stopping me from getting more. I could probably afford any one of them, but certainly not all.

    - Thinline Telecaster, but with more traditional telecaster control plate (similar to a recent build here) and with a bigsby.
    https://www.tdpri.com/threads/recently-finished-thinline-style.1060818/#post-10390758
    - Gibson les Paul (most likely a jr.) with P90s
    - Eastwood Thunderbird (I’ll never be able to afford a real non-reverse firebird)
    - (New MIA by Heritage) Harmony Silhouette
    - Loar arch top with no cutaway, single neck pickup
    - Dearmond X155
    - MIJ fender thinline Jaguar
    - Something with real Teisco gold foils
    - Teisco May Queen
    - Teisco Spectrum 5 (probably a reissue)
    - Kay Speed Demon
    - Vintage Danelectro or honest reissue
    - a double neck 6/12 (uglier the better)

    There might be more. Fortunately I have a few I like a lot and there are enough competing that it’s not “easy” to pick one to buy. I am going to sell off a few to acquire at least one of these soon however.

    what about yours?

    Fender SuperChamp X2, in tweed
    G & L Tribute ASAT Classic, Butterscotch Blond
    Tweed Case for the ASAT

    Those are sort of in my price range.

    I saw a guy playing a G & L ASAT in a church service I was livestreaming in early December. I fell in love with the instrument and its sound. It was likely one of the more expensive versions of the ASAT, but it was butterscotch blond.

    I would really like the Martin HD-28e electric-acoustic, but that's a little out of my range.

    -Grosh, Suhr, Melancon, or Ibanez Prestige HSS
    -70s Gibson ES-150

    I don’t want a bunch of stuff, but a big hollow body sound and a high quality versatile HSS style guitar can just about cover it for me for what I do. Til my tastes change and I inevitably want something else.

    I hold out hope that I'll find "grandpa's old guitar" at a garage sale, and when I open the case it will be an original Gibson Moderne that somehow escaped the saw in Kalamazoo.

    We can all dream :twisted:

    Not being as affluent as the other forum members that can "feasibly acquire" a bunch of vintage axes (enjoy them in good health!), my list off the top of my head would be:

    • some kind of Maccaferri clone
    • some kind of headless -- the simpler the better: no multi-scale or fancy trem. I'm still holding out for when more/cheaper Strandberg clones hit the market
    • P bass partscaster
    • baritone Esquire partscaster with B16 Bigsby

    Gibson L-1 and I would be done.
    No way could I justify owning one,
    but no fault in dreaming some.

    Gibson ES-339
    Gibson TV Yellow LP Special

    That's about it. I'm pretty happy with my current stable; got all my Fender bases covered. The LP Special I've been wanting since I saw G.E. Smith play one on SNL probably 30 or so years ago. ES-339 is just that I like my Epiphone ES-339 so much, I'd like to get a Gibson one too - maybe with a figured top.

    I would love to have a Gibson J-45. I am really moving toward short scale guitars, as they are easier on my arthritic fingers.

    D'you know, I really think I'm sorted. Apart from unaffordable vintage exotica, the only thing I might realistically want is a mid 70s sunburst Precision.

    25+ years ago when I was thinking of taking up bass, a work colleague who was also a busy gigging bassplayer, lent me his 1978 P Bass to try over the weekend. He was planning to sell it for around £300 a few months later, but I couldn't wait and bought a new one. I've been kicking myself ever since. It had real mojo. Mind you, the 96 PBass I bought has got a bit of history by now as well and I wouldn't be without it.
