    Okay I was gonna entitle this "famous guitar you'd most like to steal" but lets face it, none of us is gonna get within 10feet of these guitars unattended. So lets just say we could own em for fantasy's sake. The post about "top 10 guitars you'd like to have in your harem" got me to thinking when a lot of people started listing famous muscian's guitars... Whose would ya knab?

    For me....
    Duane Allman's Fillmore Les Paul

    Its left handed so won't work for me(I am a lefty but I play righty) and I think turning it over righty inverting the crosses might invoke more evil than Sabbath does already lol.

    1. Frank Zappa's Cherry burst Les Paul (used on Shut Up N Play Yer Guitar)

    2. Roy Buchannan's "Nancy", 1952 Telecaster, I believe (though it could be a nocaster or some other year, I'm not sure)

    3. Alex Lifeson's white 355 (and no, I don't want one of the re-issues)

    Here's Nancy (it's a 1953 Telecaster after all):

    And here's Frank with his LP:

    I've always liked this Hamer V of Rick Nielsens:

    I've never seen him play it in person but it's very cool and since he doesn't use it much on stage it's not all beat to hell..
