    What kind would it be? Just a random thought. Here are mine:

    My '69 ES-345 reminds me of a convertible GTO:

    My Bowery Tele like a Hot Rod Challenger:

    And my '52 RI Black&Gold Tele like a Screaming Chicken, of course.

    I struggled with the R8 for a while, but then came up with a doozy:

    I'm not sure of make/model, but it wouldn't be in stock form. My main guitar is a Jackson Soloist. So, it's like a totally hotrodded strat. So figure a stock muscle car, cool in it's own right, then chop the roof down, narrow the rear end and put huge slicks on it, supercharge the engine, add some custom paint etc...

    Sounds like a Road Runner to me!

    Not real original I know LOL

    Actually, that '68 Firebird was a car dad and I built when I was growing up so I built him a Firebird (guitar) of the same color as a gift. Which I'll probably finish by Christmas 2021 or something :mob

    I built my partscaster to be a '70 Stratocaster themed after my '70 Pontiac LeMans. Granada Gold lacquer!

    All I had to do was ship off the body to RS Guitar Works along with the GM paint code!

    I don't know about the ES335, but that GTO looks a little like MY GTO!

    My '71 Hagstrom reminds me of my '71 minibus: both cute, yet gutless Euro devices...

    Carrol Shelby's 40th Anniversary Shelby Cobra GT 500KR Guitar. Presented to him on his 85th birthday. I'd say this one would be a Shelby.

    My old 68 Plymouth GTX - 440 cubic inches, 4 speed manual, Cragar mags. Sorry for the lousy pic. I scanned it from a 40 year old photo. I still have the guitar - wish I had the car!
