  • What do you think are the prettiest guitars of all time?

    I have a short list of one guitar, the Rickenbacker 350SH Susanna Hoffs Limited Edition:






    This is the one guitar that I'd pay $10k for. I just find everything about it to ooze awesome. Plus I love Susanna Hoffs.

        I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks.

          I knew a guy who had a Hoffs Ric and he didn't even play. He was a big Bangals fan. It was one of the first Rics I ever saw in person and it was gorgeous.

          Here is my vote:

              Guitars = Chick Magnet

              You do the math.

                  I think the Les Paul Black Beauty is one of the best looking guitars ever made, simple and elegant.



                  Besides being a guitar player,
                  I'm a big fan of the guitar.
                  I love that damn instrument.

                      I have to second this, although my one doesn't have a Bigsby. It's my most treasured possession; such a thing of beauty.

                        I love Susanna Hoffs.



                        + 100 Kabillion. Though I am not sure I would pay $10,000 for her. I would think about it though.

                          Get me that guitar, thanks.

                            That guitar, though. I mean, first of all, it's a limited edition Rickenbacker. Second of all, the checkerboard binding, the smaller body, full sized neck, the humbucker in the bridge, the R tailpiece, it's pretty much perfect in my books.

                            Also a good investment, I can't see that going down in price. The prices for it have skyrocketed despite the fact that who listens to The Bangles anymore?

                              I like any of the 70s Fenders in natural or that nasty, dramatic 3-tone burst. Add a black pickguard and I'm all into it. Something about those 70s Fender "woody" guitars just begs one to play the type of music I love (post-punk/new wave). That Rickenbacker is sweet, though.
