    This is not about your favorite guitar or the best playing guitar....but the prettiest guitar-visually.

    I'll have to go with my old USA Starfire....everything about it was beautiful...and the red was, just glorious

    It's a 3-way toss-up for me:

    Schecter C-1 Elite - the abalone binding, abalone fret inlay, and abalone on top of the control knobs, on top of the flamed maple top was absolutely gorgeous.

    Ibanez AM93 semi-hollow - I have a much better picture of it's real beauty, but it's on another laptop that's already packed for the move.


    Then there is this Gretsch, which this thread made me realize that I actually did buy at least one guitar purely on looks. Of course, I had already played a couple of Pro Jets, so I knew I was getting a great playing guitar.

    Prettiest guitar you have owned (and still own also)

    I'll chose one of my Daughter's guitars : her Corvette G5135GL. She flashed on it...


    ... And her matching case :

    That's cool! I love the block inlays and the aged wood. "Swoon!"

    Yikes, how do I pick one without hurting the other guitars feelings...

    Currently owned, might be my newest

    Previously owned, must be the one I sold to @Jellyroll Horton,

    No pics cause I'm on my phone but my stolen 6128TCG was the most beautiful guitar I had seen, that's why I bought it.
    My current beauty is my 6128FSRTDS from wildwood. Black with gold hardware and dynas, the only configuration like that at the time.

    There needs to be a way to click once and add a Like to every post. All the guitars are beautiful.

    I don't do pretty, but if you insist... I sometimes think my Black Phoenix is intimidating in it's beauty. Other days I adore the look of my red Gretschified Squier double fat Tele or the Epiphone Emperor. There are others...

    I can’t say I’ve ever owned really pretty guitars. The prettiest guitar I have ever owned is my current number one guitar.

    2009 G6196TSP-2G in smoke grey and metallic violet with a few small mods.(The reason there's no screw on the truss rod cover is that I just sprayed it purple this morning to replace the stock one.)
