    What is your dream guitar? Or if you already own it, then tell us about it!

    My dream guitar is the Jem 7V. Why?
    1.) 24 frets, so i can play some of the vai, satriani, etc. stuff.
    2.) ultra slim playable neck.
    3.) stunning tree of life abalone inlay.
    4.) sexy more edgy strat body.
    5.) HSH setup for variety of tones.
    6.) I like more powerful pickups for lead playing.
    7.) Lions claw cavity (can pull up as well)
    8.) Ibanez edge Tremelo
    9.) last frets are scalloped
    10.) the whole over all appearance is so appealing towards me.

    You don't have to describe why, but pictures are really what everyones looking for.

    I don't know what my dream guitar is, but that Jem is probably my worst nightmare.

    Steve, is that you? (oh, and not my style but sweet in it's own right!)

    I like vintage-spec Fenders. That Jem is basically every feature that I dislike all wrapped up in one guitar.

    Mine would a be a Suhr Modern, koa body, maple neck, with an Indian Rosewood fretboard, 24 frets with dots, locking tuners, stained (I'd want it simple), five way selector, Gotoh bridge, and a button on it like the Guthrie Govan model that bypasses everything to the bridge pickup.

    Why? Because it'd kick major a$$

    Pretty much all of them, but I'm partial to Jaguars (with Strats probably being my least favorite). :)

    The dream guitar role is currently occupied by the SG Deluxe: 24 frets, 3 humbuckers, what looks like some gee-whiz wiring, and a sweet maple top available in lime green burst.

    I have couple of dream guitars. I already have both of the models - but if it is to be a dream guitar it's got to be these two particular ones.

    Probably something like this, but maybe in a hard tail:

    Pretty simple for me.

    PRS single cut body but with 2 volume controls.
    base sound - just like my McInturff Carolina (LP)
    both humbuckers splittable
    When split
    Neck - kick as big warm strat on the neck.
    Neck and Bridge - sounds like a Strat Neck and Middle together
    Bridge - Tele like Page in early Led Zep

    I am sure there are guitars that come close, but I'd rather have 2 great guitars than 1 that does both ok.

    I have a few that I vow to own at some point in life (ideally all at the same time!)
    -Gretsch White Falcon
    -Gibson Les Paul Custom in white
    -PRS Custom 24

    Nothing crazy or overly unique, but they're all guitars I love and would put to good use.
