    I would love either a red TVJones Spectra Sonic Supreme which is way above my budget or a Motorave Belaire which is double the price of the TVJones Spectra....but damn, they are pretty!!!

    How about you?

    Very nice. The blue TVJ is my fave though. The Cort versions are nice and much more affordable.

    My choice would be a B & G Little Sister Private Build. I'd have to have an unexpected windfall for that to to happen though. They just released this one:

    A more affordable version is the new Crossroads series:

  4. I gas for something different every few days. Yesterday it was a blue burst Gibson es137. Florentine is the way to go. Before that it was Keith Richards Tele,like the one being built on another thread. Actaullly, that one returns often. Recently got what’s called a gypsy jazz guitar with a big sound hole. Now i want one with a small sound hole. I’m sure by tomorrow it will be something else. Probably;y a blue mandolin.

    I have a jumbo Alvarez Artist AD80SSB I paid $150 for. Wonderful guitar. I play it more than my 9 electric guitars put together.
    This would move it to the back of my closet. Just dreaming. Retired so a 3K guitar is stupid.

    I've never owned a Tele & I don't want to go the grave in that condition. But of more immediate usefulness is a Weissenborn style lap steel.

    An acoustic electric hybrid. Something like a Taylor t5 . That's actually the next build floating around in my head.

    I already own my Hwy 1Strat. I had always wanted a Gretsch my entire life So the affordability of the G5230 Electeomaric caught my attention and I purchased it. I love it. But have gas for a
    6128 Duo Jet. Such a beautiful versitile guitar. I also very much enjoy my Charvel.

    I've always had a thing for Byrdlands, but I don't think I'd like the 23.5" scale. So a long-scale Byrdland is an L-5 CT, which is very cool. I already have the Guild equivalent, a T-400, which is probably a better instrument for my needs.

    After wanting one for 50 some odd years, I got a dobro...a Goldtone PBS. I want a Beard DecoPhonic 57 when my ship comes in.

    A black Jazzmaster or Jaguar would be pretty awesome.
    Or a Supro Belmont. These are way cheaper than the jazzmaster...

    I am currently re-developing my long dormant 'shred' side and I find myself GASing for a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR-S in Dragonburst
