Who's Guitar is the Holy Grail?

In general, culturally, I would say Robert Johnson's Gibson.


Strictly for my own fanboy enthusiasm, though, I'd go with this one, mainly due to the many hours spent gazing at the LP cover to Rock 'n' Roll Music when I was a kid:

Skip the guitar. Give me Mike Campbell's hands.



What, you say I can't have them?



Well give me any of them in this pic!

Call me a fuddy-duddy if you want to, but if I could own any guitar in the world, even if just long enough to strum a few chords on it, it would be Maybelle Carter's late 1920's Gibson L5.

I'd tune it to my open chord tuning, capo it up, and fingerpick 'Wildwood Flower' on it in accompaniment to the original recording...twilight zone stuff!

Runners up:
Eric Johnson's "Faye", the one he got back recently after being stolen
26 years ago the black one with the "special violin tone".

David Gilmour's Red strat with the EMGs (or I'll take the black one too!).

Frank Zappa's hand made copy SG.

Steve Miller's Ibanez Artist AR500.

Carlos Santana's mother-of-pearl laden Gibson L6-S or his Yamaha SBG3000 with extensive mother of pearl.

But really, John McLaughlin's Rex-Bogue made double rainbow doubleneck:


Too bad it was destroyed sometime in 1975 due to a bad accident.

Luthier Robert Dullam created a REPLICA:


Too bad it was stolen almost immediately from the guitarist who had
the guitar commissioned and built by Dullam. Rumors are it's in europe
somewhere.

Ibanez made an "Artwood Twin" based on the Bogue design and
reissued it a few years ago.

Someday if I win the lottery I'll get one of the Ibanezes.

Cool thread! Any of the big teles would do it for me- Keef, Roy, Bruce, MC & TP, Joe Strummer, Clarence, Gatton, Muddy, Buck & Don, etc. But just for personal reasons, my Holy Grail would be Peter Buck's Ric.

For me it would be the 59 335 Robben Ford used with the Yellow Jackets. The live Monmouth College Fight song tone kills me. And to think he was using a solid state Yamaha amp.
