    One day it’s this, next day it’s that. Guitars are just tools to me, I don’t get attached.

    I don’t have a single dream guitar - but I do have a few very specific guitar “types” I’m looking to tick off in my collection. To me, these are iconic guitars that cover a wide range of creative ground. I’m trying to pick up a top-quality example of each...basically planning to add one per year until I’m there!

    -50s 2-tone strat: done, Danocaster
    -60s white tele: done, K-Line
    -335: done, Heritage with OX4s
    -60s strat, color TBD: open
    -Nocaster: open
    -R4 P90 Goldtop: open
    -R9 Burst: open
    -Shredder: open

    I want to design the ugliest guitar ever created. Just something so offensive it steals a piece of everyone’s soul. Bwahahaha

    If they made a Gibson SG with 24 frets, noiseless single coil in the neck position, wrap tail w/ adjustable intonation, I'd be good with that.

    It’s already been designed and it’s called the Wangcaster.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever been the same since, there’s an emptiness I can’t describe.....

    If I'm not able to find a nice vintage strat one day I suppose I would really like a Ronin Mirari

    Two for me - a Gibson CF-100E:

    And a Kay Red Devil.

    I do own a lot of guitars that would be considered 'better' than these, but for some reason the design of each one speaks to me.

    An ES-175 with P-90s, but with a 25.5" scale and a neck like an R8.

    Nothing that the guitar community at large would expect me to name.

    R4 Les Paul Custom. I'll probably never own one, but it's my favorite guitar.

    Proof! I knew about the private collector and I knew that Christies auctioned it off in the 90s after Doug Doppeler saw it at a guitar show in Texas. That would be my dream guitar too.
    Either that or pay Robert Dullam to build another replica of the Bogue double rainbow:

    Or maybe hire the Japanese luthier who did these:

    Right now I really want a Framus Panthera 2. Teambuild or masterbuilt is fine so long as it's a German made one.

    I am gonna tour the factory in Febuary and hopefully play a bunch of guitars haha.
