        Yeah, you need an engraver or a big hammer and chisel.

          Good question. It would be an acoustic with very nice looking woods. A big guitar, a jumbo or dreadnought because I'm a big guy and I look silly playing a little guitar. Probably something by Breedlove since I like their thinking in terms of design.

            It would be a Fender Strat, so it would be made in China and have a "Made in America" sticker.

              For me, money no object, it would be Breedlove CM, from the Custom Shop, with some fancy woods.

                M's or 0000 are pretty good size acoustics, well balanced too. Don't rule one out.

                I have an MC 28 that has been with me since the late 80's.

                After owning it like 20 years, it was finally time for a neck reset. All MC 28 either had a neck reset done or need one. Martin approved the neck reset through the authorized service guy down the street. He does amazing work. Martin also sprung for a new bridge and saddle. I love Chris Martin the 4th. I turned around a bought 2 more Martins.
                I have since had the money maker frets redone.



                Fat neck, or slim, tapper.

                You can't go to Breedlove without some specs.

                      It would be a natural blonde light ash hardtail Strat. Black pickguard.Maple fretboard, Lawrence /Wilde L45 pickups.
                      I should make it myself.

                          Nice.
                          Don't forget the hand forged hardware.
