Do you own your dream guitar?

If so, what is it, how much did it set you back. etc.?

and if not what is your dream guitar?

My dream guitar would be a custom ESP 7-string V with abalone binding around the body, neck and headstock, in some kind of flamed or quilted maple top, dark red, with an ebony fingerboard and dark red headstock. No inlay, EMG 707's or Seymour Duncan Blackout-7's (Phase 2). 3 way selector and 2 volume knobs, no tone.... yeah... that

1955, EXF, original metallic green finish, one of the cleanest examples of an early custom color Strat we have ever seen, tweed OHC......$185000

It's on Gruhn guitars. Pretty much my holy grail.

It's a tremolo bridge, but it has a cover on it.

Wow... that's just dead on stupid. No sound is worth that much, only the player is, and good players can deal with stuff in $$$ range, and the $$$$ range but that's just over kill.

Nope, if you took the cover off, it would look like any other tremolo.

Hey, he said dream guitar right? Who wouldn't want a '55 strat that looks like it came off the line yesterday?

As far as I'm aware my dream guitar isn't made but it would basically be like an Ibanez RG shaped body and a Jackson headstock with the following spec.

Mahogany body with a maple top
5 piece maple and walnut thru-neck, Wizard II dimensions
24 jumbo frets with an ebony fingerboard and shark tooth inlays
Edge Zero Bridge
Bare Knuckle 'Cold Sweat' pups that are coil tapped with a 3-way selector

I think I got a quote from Ran a while ago and based on that it would probably be about £2000 now. I'd love to have it one day but at the moment the only difference with my existing guitar is the Edge Zero bridge, ebony fingerboard and maple top so it's probably not worth it for what I use it for.
Gibson Les Paul Studio with Catswhiskers pickups
PRS SE 'Floyd' Custom 24 with Creamery pickups
Fender Standard Stratocaster with DiMarzio pickups
Takamine GN30
BluGuitar AMP1
#25

Bare Knuckle Holy Diver + Rebel Yell

Quite a realistic purchase, really.

Even though I love the guitars I have now, I'd really like to have a Blackmachine:









They're damned good looking

My '83 Kramer Pacer Special w/ SD '78 model pickup.
Why? Cause I love Kramers, I love David Gilmour ( and his black Strat), I love single humbucker guitars and I love OFR's. This one has it all in one

^Nice guitar. Nice choice of pickup too. They sure don't make them like that anymore.

But I don't see what all the fuss over Blackmachines is about :\

I have one of my dream guitars, my Syn Custom... I don't care that it's a sig, I love it.

But I'd love to own a Schecter C1 Blackjack ATX-FR, Gibson Les Paul Goldtop or a Fender MIA Strat in Olympic White.

They're made from incredibly high grade materials: for instance, the quilt maple top on one of the above guitars (which belongs to UG member Nolly) is 100 years old and the guy who builds them doesn't compromise on anything.

Thanks. The pickup...well it can be used for VH stuff with the right setup especially amp but its also very versatile I think and you can get a lot of different tones out of it with a volume and tone knob.

The Blackmachines I dunno, quality wise I sure they're unreal but they don't do it for me. Too thin for my liking and the headstock reminds me of a Parker which I don't like either to each his/her own I guess and if you like them then thats cool not gonna knock ya, enjoy them

Good question.

Either a vintage not reissue 1964 Cherry RedGibson ES-335 (Clapton and Freddie King), 1959 Gibson Les Paul (a '58 with '59 fretwire) packed with a double black t-top pickup for a bridge, 1964 SG custom painted with the Fool paint job (I LOVE THIS SO BADLY), a flying V with the hendrix paint job, or a strat with ANY paint job (I love all of hendrixes, clapton's more recent graffiti ones and George Harrison's 'Rocky').

i Love alot of diiffrent Guitars for a variety of reasons , but My dream guitar would be the one i am finally happy with and no need for mods ,of course that will take plenty of modding to do . so there is no set brand , but i am sure it would have the neck feel of the old charvels

My dream guitars don't exist. I'd need to sit down with the Fender and Gibson Custom Shop people and detail my wish list to them and see who came out on top.
