Re: snce years I have this question

Oooh we had this a littlewhile ago. For me it'd be an original 1952 Telecaster as my electric as that's where it all really started.

For my acoustic I'll take a Lowden F35C Co in red Cocobolo and Redwood as my acoustic. Just a wonderful tone and beautiful in its simplicity with an eyewatering price!

Re: snce years I have this question

I think the j.p.reed is considered the best for electric. For acoustic I think its a toss-up on Martin,Taylor and Gibson and Gu ild guitars. I think it is matter of of which one you like. I know some of the others will add other names too this list. The Guitar of my dreams is a Martin D28.,and I have a seperate savings acct. for it now. I am a ways from it,but I will get there some day,contrubutions and political bribes will be accepted!!!. I would really like too have willy nelsons Martin but I think his family will get it.

Gibson hollowbody archtop.  Or a Guild hollowbody archtop.  There's a theme.

Re: snce years I have this question

Intesting you should ask,because I just got a Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin, and if I had known how good ajazz archtop was as an acoustic guitar as well as electric, i would have made it my firstborn.

The original, not the reissue. Yes the white penguin is rarer. But this is my dream guitar and I can have whatever one I want. So na na na na na. At the Hard Rock in Foxwoods, Chris Issacs donated his signed. It is in the window and I looked at it for quite a few minutes. When you look at the original and the reissue. There is no comparison. The first time I saw one was in 1983 and I fell in love with it.

Re: snce years I have this question

I dont know guitars in that manner. classics are great,, but to be honest I would love to have a white 1984 Kramer Striker 600 just like the one I used to have.  The first guitar over 100 dollars I ever had. and so versatial!  I really miss it.
