    For me, a Les Paul in wine red is beautiful. Something like this:

        Jaguar (the car) Strat.



        I saw one of those at the Bay area guitar show a couple years ago and it was an incredible looking guitar. The pics don't do it justice. It looks black but is actually British Racing Green and were made in conjunction with the Jaguar Motor Company, I believe. Very elegant, and like the car, quite expensive.

          This is my pick, too, but I prefer a plain top Deluxe.

              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.


              A deal, if she comes with the guitar.

                I almost put a pic of a Deluxe on there, but I prefer the look of full-size HBs. I also prefer a plain top, but hey - this is all I found on a google image search.

                  The Ric in the OP is a beaut. But these are ones that have seemed to consistently caught my eye the most...

                    I don't go so much for pretty as for sexy. Lately, I've been digging Carvin's new

                    JB200C. I would prefer it with a rosewood fretboard and without the active electronics, tho.

                      I like Carvin Superstrats and their pointed headstocks

                        Get me that guitar, thanks.


                        Last time I saw him I asked him if he still had it but it was long gone. The John Kay model is pretty sweet as well!

                          I had a strat that color for a while - it was a real working musician's guitar - played many shows with it until I recovered my old strat that had been stolen. I really liked the color and got lots of comments from the staff at the club where I was working.

                            I love Strats, but nothing is more beautiful than a plain top Les Paul.

                              Yep, I'll take that black Ric with Susanna Hoffs.
                              Being a lefty, this is as close as I could get....no Hoffs included either.


                              Overall, I think I'd take the Ric 360v64 with the dual binding.
