    So is there a guitar that doesn't really exist (or you know of existing) that you've always wanted? Maybe a concept that you've always thought would be neat, or a company that you love that doesn't make the guitar you want.

    I brought mine up in the "5 lottery guitars" thread. I've always wanted a PRS Custom 24 with a Flying V body. I would of course get it in my favorite color (red) with a flamed maple top and one of those sweet Rosewood necks. It'd be sweet cuz it would be an extremely versatile guitar and I've always loved playing those V body shapes.

    One that sounds like a Strat, Les Paul, and a Tele without requiring external power.

    Is that too much to ask?

    Tele-Gibs and a Super-Tele (H/S/S Tele w/ Floyd)

    These things do exist, but they're hard to come by

    This has been on my mind lately because I've been thinking about putting together a parts guitar or seeing if I can find some lesser known company that makes this or can put something together:

    1. Offset body (jazzmaster type), 25" scale length, 2tek or other hard bridge. 3 p-rails, with a 5 blade switch and 3 mini-toggles for each of the pickups (so can choose single, p90, or hum individually on each pick up.

    2. Similar to above, but in a hollowbody format, possibly telecaster style body.

    Pretty boring, plain old 50s/60s Road Worn Tele/Strats with a flatter neck radius in some of the other colors from that era...

    Not a Road Worn Player

    I'd like a PRS Custom 24 or CE24 with a Floyd Rose and 6100 frets, but I'm not paying Private Stock prices.

    Single pickup Les Paul Custom with non-floating Floyd Rose trem, single volume knob located close to the bridge. Full thickness body, with a shallower neck angle, shaved heel like the Axcess.

    Actually, it would be a lot like the Axcess; but full thickness, one pickup, and the floyd would not float. Its that so hard? Would probably cost a fortune from Gibson custom shop, IF they would even agree to make it.

    I have this Sam Ash Jackson. It's made in japan, has a rosewood board and a veneer top. It also has bevelled cutaways and an arched top. It's got plastic inlays, an import Floyd and all import electronics, or at least that was true until I swapped the Floyd and electronics. This is probably my favorite guitars. I have guitars that cost 5X what this one cost, but this one is just perfection. I've owned the US SL2H and sold it. I own a Custom shop Bengal SL2H that is killer, but I still play this one more.

    I would love a US-made Jackson with the same specs right down to the control placing. Made with the right wood, an ebony board, real electronics, a real Floyd and MOP inlays, I would be in guitar heaven. I've even thought about going the Jackson custom shop route to have them make me one, but never pursued it, figuring it would probably cost me $4,000 or more.

    I'd like to have a neck through guitar with a bridge pickup only. I don't really like neck pickups that much.

    The Gibson Longhorn I had with good passive humbuckers (not the EMG 85s) and the piezo pup with blend control.
