    Who comes to mind FIRST, when you see this guitar?

    (I'm trying to settle a friendly argument of sorts, and figured a quick survey of TGP would be helpful).

    Don Rich, but I watched a lot of Hee Haw as a kid. Hopefully the sparkles and white pickguard won't disqualify him from the survey.

    Keith Richards, but seeing that it isn't a 5 string, Springsteen was the next to pop into my mind
