In your opinion, what is the best guitar ever (acoustic/electric/bass.. w/e), in looks and sound... including which year or era they were the best...

I would have to go with a gibson les paul... i know its an obvious pick, but they set the standard for all electric guitars as they are stylish while having awsome sound, fit for almost any genre of music.
My les paul is '98.. but ive played a couple from the 60's & 70's that have been reconditioned, and they are reaaallyy nice.
id have to say a pre cbs strat... drools uncontrollably

Ya the pre CBS strats are really nice. I like the newer PRS custom 24's those things are sexadellic.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.
The guitar that was built for you by a luthier after talking carefully to him about the sounds and features you want

Is that Chuck Norris in your avator? I never thought of him as a shredder really... a shredder of bodies maybe.

a 59 les paul kills all but a 62 strat. strats rule.

Original late 50s P bass(not the one with the single coil), sunburst with maple board and lots of wear-vintage vibe

some sort of conklin custom 7/8/11/13 string-all out insanity

Wouldn't mind having a fully carved, figured top, Custom Shop Mockingbird either

Its really a matter of preference.
