    OK, well the "ultimate" list is already started. How about a "semi-ultimate" list? $25k budget...

    I'd put a Thorn and a JG on my list...

    Turner Model 1 would top the list for me...

    ...and you could add an Ernie Ball Music Man "Mr. Horsepower" Nigel Tuffnel signature axe, too...

    But if I had to have 1 more guitar I'd Get Scott Heatley to design me a Stormy Monday Blues Guitar. It would be either a Gold Top or a Dark Burst with a WCR Betts Set. Nice Fat neck, Jumbo Frets ..........see if he could do a little Fillmore inlay at the 12th fret. [​IMG]:BEER

    I would have to stick with the guitars I currently have and also have on order. (guild bluesbird, modded vintage reissue tele, custom made martin acoustic and on order I have a 53 tele relic and a Gauge Guitars singlecut with P90's)

    the only things I think I would add would be a few more amps and another singlecut speced out like a 58 les paul.

    For me, its my Gibson ES-5 with three P-90's. "They" are talking about this guitar when "They" say "Tone to the Bone!"

    I remember when I could get a Refinished 57 for only $2000 in the early 90's. :jo

    I had dozens of 70's strats and teles for around $500 a pop. :eek:

    Man I'd wish I held on to a few of them..............[​IMG]
