    I really want to try out the 60th Anniversary teles...all of them! But they're not being sold anywhere near me, unfortunately.

    Probably a '54 RI Goldtop LP w/wraparound tailpiece...or better yet, a custom ES-335 w/P-90s!

    I doubt I'd have the desire to ever own one, but I've always wanted to give a Rick Turner Model 1 a spin around the block. Just, well, curious.

    A real vintage Fender Jazzmaster and a Huber Orca.

    For me, it'd probably be EBMM Steve Morse (not the Y2D one). I'm curious how the neck feels and if I could get used to all those switches.

    Gustavsson Bluesmaster. I'm wondering if owning it will parts sea and allow for walking on water.

    Now THIS is a fun thread for TGP!

    For me it would be either a Motorave Le Mans OR am LSL T-Bone. :)

    A guitar that has the proverbial 'magic.'
    You know, a recognizably great guitar.
    I don't move in the player or collector circles that find these.

    One of the long-scale Soloways with finger-style spacing. I'm a classical guitarist by background, don't use a pick, and have a feeling I'd love one of these, but am always nervous about taking the plunge on boutique stuff.

    I own two of 'em. The sea didn't part and they don't allow me to walk on water, but I could paddle a boat with 'em I guess, if it came to that. :p

    I guess the answer to the OP for me would be a Teuffel Birdfish.

    Given your self-description, the Soloway would be a great fit. Contact Jim and see if he's still doing the demo thing.

    Outside of a many vintage guits, I'd love to see what some of our TGP builders have to offer especially in the relic-ed Fender style like K-line or Danocaster etc. Also have never played any of James Tyler's line, very curious about them, despite the headstock!

    There's quite a few, tho I'm really happy with my current collection. Soloway Swan, various Anderson and Suhr tele shaped dual humbucker models.
