    The Gretsch G6136T Falcon Players Edition with the thinner profile. I found a place in the city that has one, after I get back from vacation I may go check it out. It will be a while before I jump on one, but I want to go check it out thoroughly!

    Also, I really really covet this baby blue Firebird-alike that the guitarist from Starcrawler uses. Not sure what it is, I think it might be a Fano.

    YES! And the Gibson EH-150. If I remember from his Instagram, he found it in a pawn shop for some ridiculously low price...which he more than deserved. I'm not a superstitious man, but there's something to be said for the idea of things finding their rightful owners.

    My list is pretty big since I have one geet. There's realistic stuff and pipe-dream stuff on it so I could go on at length but won't subject you fine folks to that. I have a folder on my desktop called "LUST LIST" with pics and contact info to keep me motivated. Short realistic list:

    That Vintage Orange Sweetwater G5420T, possibly with some mods. High end would be a 6120 of some sort or a Roundup, 21st century versions.

    Vintage47 amp, either the Ric or Bronson style, will depend on my mood when ordering. Higher end would be a nice TV front 5e3 clone.

    An acoustic jumbo; low end would be an Epiphone EJ-200 Artist in natural, high end a Gretsch 6022 Rancher, which my research shows me can only be found on eBay from Japan.

    A lap steel to replace my long-gone aluminum frypan and vintage Rickenbacker Bakelite; either one of these, most likely the RAM Gibson style but again will depend on my mood when purchase time comes:



    Maybe a small-bodied acoustic; low end an Art & Lutherie Roadhouse in faded black: http://www.artandlutherieguitars.com/roadhouse-1

    High end a Collings Waterloo, so beautiful I can't decide which one: https://www.waterlooguitars.com/models/

    Sigh, but for the lack of bucks...but job interview Thursday so fingers crossed!

    I’m not sure if there is one that’s a brand I haven’t had before but here’s my list:

    ‘60s Gibson ES-335
    All rosewood fender Telecaster (like Harrison’s)
    ‘58-60 narrow panel Tweed Bassman

    I wish I wasn’t a sucker for vintage, or some of these would be a lot easier to obtain!

    Bigsby (never going to happen), TK Smith (very unlikely), Wandre (I think they're out of my price range, at least for what they are), Mosrite (maybe), Hoyer (I've come close a couple of times). I have no idea about their prices or rarity, but the three Hoyers that really trip my trigger are the Fantastik, Bianka and Map.

    I gas for a DiPinto, Galaxie or Mach IV or Belvedere Deluxe, but I've never played one so I could turn out to hate them? One of the older MiK ones would probably be within the realm of possibility to grab remotely, sight unseen so to speak, but I think I'd really be more into one of the custom order US ones...

    I imagine I'd be all over a TK Smith, or a TVJ, or a Bigsby if I ran into one as well.

    DynaJet , 2 pup Dyna full hollow, and a Duffy Falcon are all on the GAL as well, but I already own a number of Gretsches, same for an '80s G&L SC-2 w/ Dual Fulcrum bridge...

    Growing up I never really dug this brand nor got the hype but am warming to the plainest versions of their guitars. I’m currently interested in one of these:

    I guess I'll throw in a Harmony Espanada, i've had lots of Harmony guitars and still do but this one has evaded me. Screenshot_2019-01-08-10-31-06-1.png
