    I waited years for her to open up her mailing list. When she finally did, I had to hold off on ordering one. I see it's open now. This presents a real dillema for me.

    I've always wanted to try out one of the Phil X signature Framus SG-style guitars. They've made some really interesting models.

    I have always wanted to try out a boutique strat to see what the fuss is all about. It doesn't matter who the builder is, I just want to see what a boutique strat is like. I have played a few custom shop strats and was far from impressed. I do really, really good work polishing a guitar neck and I've never felt a neck better than the ones I've worked on.

    I’d like to try a danocaster jazzmaster. But I never will because of the price.

    Saul Koll. The guy has a real flair for design. I’d love to have one hanging on the wall.

    Would really love a nice Martin acoustic. I played a 73 last week that was really nice. Also, played some newer ones that sounded amazing . To expensive for me right now. Might have to build one to see if I can do it.

    Yeah, I’ve played Josh’s and have seen him perform with both his Forshages. They sound great and feel even better. I’ll definitely post some pics and video when mine is ready!

    I've been trying a few top brand guitars this year including Artinger, Lentz and Thorn. The Artinger (a faded denim blue semi) was beautifully designed and made but I didn't really get excited by the pickups (El Rayos). The Lentz (an HSL) was what I expected in terms of quality and tone but the huge neck didn't really work for me so both this and the Artinger are gone. However, the Thorn (a Goldtop G/T with Arcane Pickups and a stunning flame roasted maple neck) is the absolute biz and a keeper.

    I'd be interested to try another Artinger but I'm not really lusting after anything these days.

    Ibby AZs and their FGN kind-of, sort-of analogues.
    Suhr Aura, but I can't justify dropping the cash on it now that I'm a hobbyist and occasional jam-session guy who isn't rolling in the mad-pimpin' G-stacks, but I still want to try them anyway.

    Stuff I want to try again: John Page Classic, Schecter USA Sunset Custom, PRS 594 Singlecut, Silver Sky, and an older Thorn I saw in passing but should have paid much more attention to.

    Huber. I had the chance to play some while in Europe the last several weeks but I avoided the opportunity.

    My current plan is that the only way I’ll add to my arsenal is - as with amps and analog pedals - if I make it myself.

    I have to say, there are a lot of guitar makers I would never have heard of if it weren't for TGP. Knaggs, MJT and Dano were completely off my radar until I came here.

    It's good for education but bad for GAS :beer
