Has anyone mentioned Harrison's Custom Rosewood Tele that he played on the Apple Rooftop Recordings?

Especially considering that as well known as some of the guys and their guitars are, there's numerous people known for playing Strats, Teles, Les Pauls, SGs, 355s, etc, but Brian May's guitar is completely synonymous with him, and no one else.

Oh boy, this thread can't possibly go awry

Clapton's Strat (most people wouldn't know it by name or as anything other than "that black and white one"), Brian May's Red Special (again, most people would just call it "that one Brian May has") and a faded burst/amber Les Paul ("that thing Slash plays"). Angus Young and the SG would probably count, too, though I think the school cap and shorts probably overshadow the guitar.

Most of the people mentioned so far aren't even names that Joe Public would think of, let alone guitars that they would know.

Guess what, most people in the world don't know the difference between valve amps and solid state, active and passive pickups, woods, body shapes or brands. I've lost count of how many itmes I've had to tell people that no, electric guitars don't have to be plugged into the mains, they don't make a sound by themselves and that distortion comes from the amp or pedals and isn't the natural sound of an electric guitar signal. You think anybody is really familiar with what the **** Randy Rhodes plays? Most people don't have the slightest clue who Randy Rhodes is in the first place.

The idea of guitars being "iconic" is bizarre and ridiculous. There are a small, very small number of players who are "iconic", and their guitars are largely irrelevant.

I've never seen misinformation from Tom. But then again, I wouldn't know. I would've been misinformed...

Pfftt! 6 threads since joining less than a month ago. LP1951 is quite the prolific thread starter, yea?

Love Symbol #2 was iconic as ****.

Still not nearly as iconic as Slash's LP, or Clapton's Blackie.

But Vai's JEM is a pretty iconic guitar, at least to me.

Sure is. Great spammer too.

Seriously, it seems he makes a thread when people disagree with him. Or he just gets mad and spams the thread that's open in his browser.

Though, as with many of these, it's easily arguable that other elements are far more "iconic"; with Prince it's really more the complete look and sound, rather than simply what lump of wood he is holding.

His Love Symbol guitar was Iconic, in name form at least

The white cloud guitar is bossssss.

When I saw two years ago he played his Hohner tele. Sexy as hell. He's iconic on his own, really.
