    Only if it was Jimi's Strat.
    I guess you haven't looked at Fender Custom Shop prices lately...

      No I figure if I wanted a true custom guitar I'd order the parts from Warmoth and build it myself, that, or like THB, have a luthier build it much cheaper.

        I have a hard time understanding what they could do to a strat to make it worth $10k. Really, really primo pup wire? Solid gold hardware? Diamond inlays?

        No offense intended, but (see above) . . .

          Well, that and the body and neck is hand-sanded on the thighs of virgins.

          That's what's so great about the Internet:
          It enables pompous blowhards like myself,
          to connect with other pompous blowhards
          in a vast circle jerk of pomposity.

              I've come across some cover bands that get that tone pretty well with epiphone hollow-bodies, ts9 as said before, and I'm not sure on the amp, but one of the guys I know didn't have a very expensive amp, don't remember what he had, but it wasn't anything over $1000. He was guitar player in my brother's cover band, did that style of music in the late 90's for big money at frats and such. The hollow body helped get that sustained feedback tone that trey uses alot in his signature sound on phish's signature albums.

              Basically, find yourself a nice woody traditional jazz tone, then juice it.

                Sounds about right to me. He's using a Mesa Mark III (or was at some point) and there's a fair number of similar amps out there.

                    By the way, finding that nice woody jazz tone will be alot of fun!

                    My personal opinion is that Trey never struggled too much with his gained sound, I think it was his clean sounds that frustrated him, if you listen to tall the album stuff, and alot of live stuff over the years, it's the clean sounds that are everchanging and inconsistent. The switch to the Deluxe Reverb sort of marks the timeline where his sound became consistent on the cleans.

                          Trey is, indeed, a guitar god. I would put him up against any living guitarist for style, tone, and general chops -- he would hold his own.

                          Folks who say he 'sucks' are obviously idiots. I'm not suggesting that everybody love him or his music, but saying that he 'sucks' is like calling Jimi a hack. It just ain't so.
