    Just a simple thread actually - post ONE guitar from another fellow gearpager or friends that you wish was yours. No celebrity guitars - unless you're friends with Eric Clapton :D

    Oh yeah - this type of thread is usually worthless without a pict ;)

    Well, I get things off to a slow start then, as far as pics go.

    I would just love a brand new CherryBurst Les Paul classic with a highly figured AAAAA perfect flame maple top and cherry on the neck and a cherry back. I guess they come that way. Suppose I would like a one piece mahogony back. All that binding is fine, I suppose. Looks cool, for sure. But want to make sure the strings don't roll of the neck. How many guitars are great in so many respects but the string rolls of the neck when you're not doing anything special. Bad sign.

    I recently bought a used Gary More Les Paul and it is a real awakening to me. Been a Fender guy heretofore. Slowly I have been poking my toe into the Les Paul pool. Some pool. Everything from goldfish to sharks in here. They'll argue...I mean take your toe right off. But I digress. This GM guitar grabbed me and wouldn't let go. It's down on my dining room table now and I don't imagine I will ever let this guitar go.

    The strings stay on this neck and the whole Les Paul thing I see is something I wouldn't have wanted to miss. Makes me appreciate my
    Nocasters and Stratocasters all the more and feel lucky to know how to play a guitar.

    Gruhns has some cool '50s Les Pauls I'd like to play, but I'd really rather not own anything like that.

    This would be rather cool though, and I could find a way to pay for it:

    http://www.gruhn.com/catalog/e.htm

    "EA1467 Gibson Explorer, 2006, NM, Classic White finish, OHC......$1000"

    [​IMG]

    That'd be my pick of the Gruhn inventory right now.

    My brother's college roommate has a '56 (I think) LP special. Finish stripped. Everything else stock, original P90s. It was the first real electric I ever got to play ... in some ways spoiled me for ever. Never found another LP I could get along with.

    I would give anything for a Broadcaster. Failing that, any real Blackguard Telecaster or Nocaster. It is the one physical possession that I want more than anything in this world.

    Easy. Mook's Flying-V-caster.

    [​IMG]

    He should leave it to me in his will. If he did, I would have someone paint a Conan-style painting of me holding the V-caster above my head on top of a mountain while lightning strikes in the background and Mook peaks down approvingly from a cloud.

    Concept:

    Tough call, considering I have a well-off collector in the family. One of these Benedettos would be tempting, but they're inseparable.

    [​IMG]

    I don't know if this Lacey Imperial is the same one as is in the family, but they look the same (I took this from Lacey's site). This may be the sweetest archtop I've yet to play.

    [​IMG]

    But then again, I still have dreams about my own archtop. (Here's Bob Benedetto, after his final inspection of it.)

    Hey Dave,

    Just a heads up man.

    With these guys all lusting after your ES-175, maybe you should start sleeping with one eye open. :D

    The beautiful Rex Bogue doubleneck that John McLaughlin used with Mahavishnu Orchestra. Wow!
