You know, the one guitar that you have ALWAYS wanted to own, and are on an ever present search for, but can never find/afford one? For me, it has to be a 1954 Strat, just like this one at Gruhn's in Nashville:

A fiesta red 59' Strat, 63 ES-355 or Duane Allman's "Hot Lanta" 59 Les Paul. I guess amps are included too? For cleans, a 59 Bassman (59 was a good year), a Super Reverb or a Dumble Steel String Swinger and for lead stuff a 67' Marshall 1986x.

1951 Blackguard would be the Holy Grail for me...

I really would like an old ES335. I would be fine with that being my only guitar...(besides my tele, I suppose.)

Blonde "pre-switchmaster" ES-5.
Fender Rosewood telecaster, either original or recent custom shop version.

Probably the Larry Carlton 335 I saw a at NAMM last week.... or the Al Dimeola custom PRS..... or the Alex Lifeson custom Les Paul. Lots of holy grails at NAMM!

Among electrics, it would have to be a black 335 with mini block inlays, fat neck, a Bigsby, and PAF's, or an original LP Custom in black (all mahogany)

Also have a soft spot for a black Johnny A with Bigsby owned by someone on this board (I regrettably forget whom...)

Among acoustics, Goodall Rosewood standard and an old Gibson K-4 mandocello.
