    A mid-1960's Mosrite Ventures Mk1 in sunburst with matching sunburst neck. Mint condition, of course. What's that? Someone left a Fuzzrite in the case too? Wow, what a great NGD!

    Not really jonesing for anything right now...but, I can't resist playing along!

    I've always been smitten by this one (although I would never pay the asking price).

    I just may have been bitten by a couple bugs.

    Gassing, Jonesing, coveting, lusting after, doing the Wayne's World "Oh yes, it will be mine" thing, call it what you will...

    A Ric 620 in Jetglo
    A Ric 1993Plus in Jetglo
    A G6128T-GH I love George's model, especially that it's all black, front to back.

    With those three, I'd be set for the Black Guitar club.

    I'm also really keen on the Danelctro '59 Vintage 12str in Aqua. And it'll be my next guitar by virtue of being $650 instead of ranging from 2k - 5k like the rest of my list. :)

    What the hell
    Everybody gets a Scharpach Victoria of their choice
    If not to keep it, to trade it for an offshore fishing boat.

    A Lefty Wandrè Rock Oval or Scarabeo... No way, that doesn't exist. :(

    Otherwise, this one, for example - which exists... An Eastwood Teisco Spectrum 5 LH :rolleyes:

    I want an original early '60's SG Standard with a Bigsby. I played one when I was 17 and I still dream of it. A proper reissue would be fine.

    Is it wrong of me to kind of want a Danelectro Longhorn bass? Because every time I watch a Traveling Wilburys video and see Petty playing one I want one.

    And thanks from me too... never heard of them before. That Provocateur has my GAS sense tingling... Never seen that open back Hipshot bridge he's got on it before either (edit: LOL, nevermind me, my sleep deprived self read the Tuner bit of the specs as Bridge somehow :rolleyes:).

    Do they all have Ric-like neck profiles? The shots of the back of the Provocateur neck make it look fairly generous and C or D shaped but it's hard to tell w/ the straight on angle.

    What I can tell you is that I kind of know the guy from another forum and he's definitely not a mysterious guitar whisperer type. I doubt he'd slavishly stick to historically "correct" Rickenbacker quirkiness. And I'm almost certain that if a prospective buyer wanted a certain neck profile, he'd try to to provide it. I would definitely contact him to work out the details. It kind of amazes me that he even goes to the trouble of making these guitars for the price he charges. And recreating the 1950s DeArmond/Rickenbacker pickups was quite a nice touch to begin with, compounded by spinning them off into multiple variants.

    Yeah, I've lusted for a BelAire for years, sadly I don't see myself ever dropping 5K on a guitar ... unless I win the lottery or something!

    I've always thought an SG with a Maestro Vibrola was one of the sexiest looking guitars ever made. But dang, every time I pick up an SG there's something I don't like about it - usually the neck. One of these days I'll find the perfect one, and then I think I'll be done....

    ... unless of course I come across a nice Amber Maple 6120! Then I'll be done.

    Maybe.

    Ever since I played my instructor's Vintage '65 reissue Jaguar, I have been hooked. Well I got my opportunity a week ago to pick up a mint condition Squier VM Jaguar and I upgraded the pickups to Fender Vintage '65s. We compared the playability and sound and I think I got a great deal for $250.00 plus the cost of the pickups. I'm all gassed up for a while.
