    I love Red Bank, NJ! Florida now Europe later
    Dirk Ziff's burst collection, Keith Richards' collection, or Jeff Lynne's.

    Mine. I would rather spend a day picking the brain of the artist. Just me being ornery!

    But a close second would be Joe B.

    That would be Angus Young's collection for me. Mostly SGs, but a few other goodies as well.

    Anyway, a day wouldn't be long enough.

    Yep. As for now, I’d go with whichever collector has the D’Angelico Teardrop. Ever since I saw a picture it has been my ultimate guitar. And I don’t even care that it doesn’t have a trem. If I won the lottery I’d find myself a luthier and get a high-end copy made.

    Dirk Ziff, Bonamassa, Norman Harris, Songbirds or any Hard Rock Cafe/Guitar Museum where the glass cases are open...
    I‘m sure all of these have been named yet haha.

    After anyone has owed ten or more guitars, it would be clear that not much would be gained being alone with someone els's equipment (unless one can only afford junk). I can play my own stuff any time I want and know how it all hooks together to sound good. So, I'd much rather have the artist play in front of me and hear and see how he hooks up his stuff and how he or she gets the sounds and plays the licks.

    I don't hold much reverence for vintage guitars or dudes with huge collections. I would want to play the guitars that inspired me as a kid.

    So give me a day with any of these:
    EVH
    Satriani
    Vai

    Either Edge or Steve Vai.
    Prior to his well-publicized auction, it would have been Gilmour.

    Yeah, didn't some of it get stolen years back? If so, very sad.

    Sonic Youth! Easily, they had such an extensive collection of guitars, all in different tunings!
