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.

- 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.

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 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.

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.
