None of the above. I wouldn't even consider buying any one if it was available and cheap enough - 500 to 1000 dollars.

Sue me!

I'd love to try Danny Gatton's Telecaster. I'm not sure if this is the one.


And John William's Smallman:

Yngwie's "Play Loud" Strat.
Any one of Petrucci's guitars.
Vai's "Evo".
Satch's "Chromeboy".


And it has to be through their respective rigs, of course. Playing their guitars through my own gear would be pointless.

And then after playing their guitars through their rigs, i'd play my own guitar through their rigs to see if i still wouldn't pick their guitars over mine. :D

For me it would be a toss up between Jerry Garcia’s ‘Tiger’, one of Frisell’s teles or Fripp’s Fernandes custom gold.

Guess I wouldn’t mind trying one of Wes Montgomery’s L-5’s as well.

I'd love to try a real 1959 Les Paul just to see what makes them so special. I'd love to know what real PAF's sound and feel like too. So I'd say Marsden's Beast or Pearly Gates or something like that.
