never gets old:
ES-345, Blackguard butterscotch tele and an under 4kg weight Les Paul!
Gretsch G5128 (may be close to acquiring this one)
Custom G&L Solamente
Fender Esquire with Lil 59 bridge pup
Reverend Double Agent W (may be close to this one, too)
G&L Fullerton Deluxe S500
G&L Fullerton Deluxe ASAT
Jackson Phil Collen PC1
Fender Vintera 60s with Bigsby (or other Bigsby-equipped Tele)
Like a lot of people here I’ve probably got too many guitars, and most of the ones I dreamed of as a young player. But there’s always room for a few more right?
So here are the ones that would make my collection complete:
58 Les Paul gold top with P90s
Jackson PC 1 in solar finish.
All would be left handers.
Fender player telecaster
Interesting number of Firebird 1s, Hamers, and Gretschs on this list. Seems like a very wide variety of guitars, of course, with a solid core of standard "needs."
Only one: Dumble Steel String Singer. Probably never get one.
Ooooh. Can I change my answer?
A pedal steel, please.
Nobody wants a Ric? I guess I’m an outlier but would love a Ric 4001 like chris squire but it’s no fun playing a bass at home and no band so...
A replica sg “fool”
Gretsch g612 Nashville gentleman
To go with my les Paul, strat and my 50s era specs homemade tele. What more could you need? I guess a Martin acoustic. Yeah... add that. And an acoustic 12 string. Guh. Forget it.
I have one of these - really a cool guitar and well made. I had one of the 2015 Gibson Jrs with the robotuners, etc, and really didn't care for it. The Hamer feels much better built, plays smoother and easier, and sounds very ballsy. Great guitar. They are around and not usually too much money.
59 Les Paul
Taylor K24ce Ltd
PRS Custom -24. Quilted top.
Early Eric Clapton signature Strat (with Lace sensor pickups) in Pewter or 7 Up Green
Brad Paisley Tele
Les Paul Classic (plain top)
Mahogany bodied Thinline Tele
The Clapton signature Strat because I'm a huge fan and have always wanted one.
The Paisley signature because I love the bridge pickup, the light weight and the aesthetics.
The Strat Ultra because I narrowly missed out on one a used one as my first "real" guitar back in '98.
The Les Paul Classic because I love Les Pauls, but much prefer the plain top aethetic.
The Thinline because, well, why the heck not?
I have most everything I want. But if you're buying, I'd like, in order:
– Martin D18 from the late 30s (or a D28, go ahead, twist my arm)
– Very clean early to mid 60s Strat
– Recent Montana-built Gibson SJ-200
– Vintage Super 400, with staple pickups
I can think of some others that would be purely novel, like a Bass VI, an Electric XII, a Hank Marvin or Mary Kaye Strat (or both), and a Gretsch Duo Jet masterbuilt in burgundy mist sparkle
I'd like my white '09 SG Custom back, my black '71 Tele thinline'. These are replaceable. Also a black LP Custom and a new LP Traditional - these are a great deal - I saw that looks like Jimmy Page's and it real light. Lastly a Heritage 535.
Then I'd never want for any guitar.
At this point when I see something that catches my eye, I put it on a list and it sits there until I lose interest.
- an American Standard Tele
- an Eastman T184MX with Lollar Imperials (Think Gibson 339 copy)
- a Martin 000-C16 (2005)
- a Les Paul Studio with SD P-Rails (gives me my P-90 fix)
- an Alvarez AC65HCE Classical
- a Fender "50's" MIM P-Bass
- a Fender '77 Champ MuchXS Morpheus Mods
- a Blues Jr. II with BillM mods and oversized pine cab
- a 5E3 clone
- a Hendrickson The Bud
- a Yamaha THX 10C
Almost any of these could be upgraded to something a little more upscale. But when I get the urge, I spend a little time with what I have and the urge goes away. (OK, I am planning on a new classical at some point, but I can't really go shopping at the moment.)
Here is the catch-phrase: Good enough is almost always good enough.
My list of guitars to keep an eye out for if I ever see them is roughly 100 items.
Late in life, here's the list.
69 Martin O 18
52 Gibson L7C
2010 MusicMan Axis Super Sport
2000 Bear Creek Weissenborn
1960 Motero Bellido (classical)
53 Magnatone Lap MOT
That's the guitars and I believe (sic) that this is my final list.
I'm pretty happy with what I have right now, although I've always wanted a wine red Les Paul.
I'm afraid I won't play it that much though, so I'm not actively searching for it
