That thing is pretty famous, but I must say I don't hear of Bootsy too often.

UNLESS, someone is quoting Old Gregg.

I've always thought that Robbie Robertson's bronzed H-S Strat was pretty memorable considering that it's totally one of a kind. Terry Kath from Chicago's stickered up and humbuckered telecaster is also very notable, I'd say.

Whenever I hear someone say that they play exclusively a single genre, I always assume that they're just a terrible guitarist.

He played a Gibson with King Crimson, in the early years, 69-75 or something of that nature. One was a three hum Gibson Custom I believe.

I don't remember hearing about him playing Parkers at all, though I do know he loves the 1867 Legend Ovations, but you have quite a bit of age on me, so maybe I'm mistaken here.

There was a 10 month period where all I would do is listen to King Crimson on repeat and research them every day. Can't remember reading about his Parkers. But, I know about the Crimson.

Please, post some pics of his Parker, I'm intrigued.


Did some research- it appears my memory is as faulty on this one as Lil' Wayne's shredding. No Parker's in Fripp's arsenal, just Belew's.

Mea Culpa!

That would probably explain the shape of the Crimson, though.

If we're adding basses, what about Michael Anthony's Jack Daniels bass?

And, FWIW, what about Rick Nielsen's collection of oddities?

To me Kirk Hammett's Frankenstein Karloff guitar and Ouija Guitar always have been pretty iconic.

Also wat about Striani's JS series (I see people mention Vai's JEM series but not this one).

Wasn't that the Strat that Cliff Richard bought for him? Or am I mistaken?

Yes & it is interesting to note they really wanted a Tele to cop James Burton's sound, but made a mistake.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Marvin

"In 1959, Marvin and Richard searched through a Fender catalogue to find the model of guitar played by James Burton, Ricky Nelson's lead guitarist. They assumed that Burton's guitar was a Stratocaster, because the most expensive guitar in the brochure was a gold-plated example with a red body and a one-piece Maple neck. Burton, however, played the Telecaster, and the Stratocaster was a relatively new model, available only to special order.

Richard made the arrangements and the chosen guitar was imported specially for Marvin, who used it between 1959 and 1961. It remained Richard's property and was returned to him when Jennings Musical Instruments outfitted the whole group with matching Fiesta Red Fender guitars, which featured necks with rosewood fingerboards. Marvin continued borrowing the original Stratocaster for recording."
