I wasn't influenced to play by a guitar.

Anyways, the iconic guitar for me is:

The Ibanez RG

Richie Sambora's 1959 cherry sunburst Les Paul. It's the sole reason why I stopped singing and started playing guitar instead.

This is the only picture I've got of it but meh.





That to me is the best looking guitar I've ever seen, and it's the best sounding too. I have wanted a guitar with that exact finish - not a new cherry burst, not a reliced cherry burst, just a yellow-orange burst made to those exact hues - for years. It actually really bummed me out that when I was looking at Gibson CS 59 reissue LPs, all the washed cherry bursts that looked right played and sounded like arse and the only guitar that played and sounded perfect was an Iced Tea finish, but meh.


Anyway, to me that is the guitar. Nothing else can even remotely touch it. That specific guitar is the holy grail to me. I actually got to see him play it once. I was halfway back through the Wembley Stadium standing crowd, thousands of people between me and the stage, I couldn't even see the stage and had to watch on the video screens because it was so packed and I was so far back - but **** it, I still cried - actually cried - when I saw him get that LP out. Some people dream about world peace, solving world hunger, being the person who finds the absolute cure for cancer. My dream is being able to play that guitar for three minutes and I'm not ashamed to admit that.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

To Me it has to be the SRV strat or the Greeny Les Paul. ive been listening to Peter Green and Gary Moore for years and not till i got abit older i realised that they played the same guitar!!

the greeny's sound, so much so tht ive got an epiphone les paul with the BKP eqivelent.

and the SRV sound is just iconic in itself to any musician


and to MR Fibble i understand totally when i was about 12 i did anything to recreat Ritchie Samboras tone through his strats

The Stratocaster, or in fact any Fender design.

I like Fender's design mentality. They're made to be practical. They're easy to build, repair and customise. They are simple in contruction, yet widely functional and versatile. Every part of the guitar is thought out and serves a purpose. They aren't fancy, but they're still high quality.

People can slag off his hair, his dress sense, the people he's worked with, his personal life.

But by god, the man has tone. I've never heard him play with a crap tone, ever.

i dunno hes got a pretty good life looking at his other half!! And the 80s hair was iconic, people who slag him off dont know jack about what the 80s were. Only thing is that he looks like hes balding abit now.

He is definetly one of the smartest and most creative guitarists out there anyway, and his Solo album was quite good i thought

The most iconic is inarguably the Fender stratocaster. 75% of most toys shaped like guitars, guitar copies and actually guitars in general when you think about it, are strat-shaped or very clearly strat-derived. Not to say it's the best(Though I do love it), but it's the most recognized as "The" electric guitar amongst normal people and a lot of guitarists too.

Personally though, give me a fully-stock 1959 Gibson Les Paul over a strat any day. The holy grail is real my friends.

Kirk hammett guitar,

And just the way he plays the guitar it's like the guitar is just a part of his body and it flows off him

Both of Tony Iommi's SG's are very iconic to me.They are so amazing.

I'm loving the amount of Tele in this thread, but alas I have to say...



I don't really associate it with a specific artist, maybe Jack White a tiiiiiny bit, but he plays more Penguin than Falcon. There's just something timeless and breathtaking about this guitar, and playing one is like a dream.

Hell yeah! The White Falcon is the real God of guitars. Thinking of the most iconic, maybe Jimi's hand-painted V.



Though the guitar that inspires me is the Gretsch Astro Jet, that's just my dream.

It's hard to see properly, but I grew up hearing the music belted from that strat, all I saw on the TV in the house was that guitar being completely raped on various VHS bootlegs of Rory Gallagher, it, and the strat in general, are my idea of the "guitar" yakno.
