It sounds like there are several guitarists that frequent DGR, so figured I would pose a few questions.
What is your favorite guitar(s) you have ever owned?
What is your dream guitar? Price is no option.
I have played and sold guitars for years. I would say I have probably owned about 200-250 electrics personally. All of the guitars I have owned have been very high quality, but I wanted to list the ones that were special to me. In the last 1-2 years I have developed a genetic condition with my hands that has taken away my ability to play, which sucks. But I still have a passion for great guitarists and well built guitars.
Here is my list:
1972 Gibson SG Standard - She was beat, bruised and worn, but had probably the best feel of any guitar I have ever handled.
1994 Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion - A very nice Hollowbody
1960's Baldwin Split Sound - Very Unique, great sound options, was awesome for blues riffs
1990's Jackson USA Shannon Soloist SL1 Custom Shop - Hand signed by the creater of the soloist once it was completed in the shop. Just a perfect lead/metal guitar.
1992 Hamer Diablo Aztec Gold - One of the best tones and sustain I have ever gotten from a guitar, and she looked amazing.
Even though it isn't the most expensive guitar. I would love to have a vintage Neckthrough Supreme Mockingbird or Eagle By BC Rich. Back when Bernie Rico Sr was building them. His choice of woods and unique style has always impressed me.
Wow, this turned into a longer post than I had planned. Sorry! Please post your thoughts.
