    what's your dream guitar? What have you never owned but always lusted after?

    For me it's the Gretsch 6121 with the tooled leather sides... Gives me palpitations :)

    Yeah, the Ms are great as well! I had a friend that loaned me his D35 for a few gigs, and it is the only guitar that I have consistently wanted for going on 10 years now.

    I dig the Gretsch choice...I've always liked the Silver Jets as well.

    I'd really dig a '68 Les Paul Custom, among others.

    I'm happy with what I've got:

    '03 Custom Shop '68 Reissue Les Paul Custom
    '15 SG Standard
    mid '80's MIJ Epiphone Casino
    '87 MIJ Fender Jazzmaster
    '77 Maton FG100 Acoustic

    Although I'd love a good Tele (again) and a classic PRS of some kind.

    I've owned most of my dream guitars, and I've learned (my wife would say too slowly) that there is no such thing as the perfect do it all guitar for me. I've also learned what works for me. As much as I love Gibsonesque designs and used to dream aout them, a strat or a tele is home base to me. So, most og my dream guitars arent dream guitars any more, simply because I've already owned them and know what I can or cannot do with them.

    I'm considering putting a set of firebird pickups in a strat to fix my St Vincent and Chandler 555 GAS, but that's about it for guitar GAS.

    I've drooled over that guitar A LOT! It looks like it belongs in Queens of the Stone Age

    3 pickup LP Custom, but with P90's. Hell, while I'm dreaming, with a stop tailpiece, no ABR, just a stop tailpiece.

    I have all the guitars I need/want, but it sure would be nice to eventually have just a little Memphis-factory action in the form of an ES-330...

    It's taken me 15 years but I've acquired my 3 top "dream guitars".

    [​IMG]

    Now that I've reached that milestone, I find that the GAS money is not burning as much of a whole in my pocket as it did before. Still, the top choices right now for current (unobtained) dream guitars include:

    Gretsch CGP edition "Stereo" 6120

    and the Gibson Country Gentleman
