Kudos to 6down1togo for this idea.
What guitars do you want before you die? Surely, there's some that you've always dreamed of.
If I ever become rich, I'm not sure the same excitement of buying guitars will be there. I've always tried to keep my collection under 10, which always makes me beg the question: Do I need this for anything new?
Already, I'm thinking about Les Pauls, but the way my thought process goes, it's about good replicas instead of the real thing. Then my mind goes to 360 Rickenbackers, which I've never enjoyed playing, but my hero, Peter Buck, plays one. I've never owned an American Fender, but I'm very happy with my Mexicans and Telecaster copy. The point of this is to have what you want, yet I don't know what I want.
In no order:
Joe Satriani Ibanez
Eric Clapton Beano
American Sunburst 50's Reissue Strat (I have the Mexican Classic Player, but I still want one like Richard Thompson)
Surf Green Strat
Yellow/Blonde Telecaster with Rosewood fretboard (Like Keith Whitley had: RIP)
Black 3 Pickup Les Paul (Like Robert Fripp, but also with Steve Hackett in mind)
Aged Natural Strat (Like Masami Tsuchiya's on the cover of Rice Music)
Black Gibson SG
White Gibson SG
Languedoc Trey Anastasio
Jerry Garcia Tiger (Despite my favorite Dead period being before he played one; it still looks awesome!)
Let's see your list!
