    Usually whichever guitars I do not own, are the ones I dream about. I do dream of these.....for obvious reasons
    :cool:;)

    At least one of my dream guitars. Why? I‘ve designed and built it myself, including winding the pickups. It was done in 10 days at Thomas Stratmann‘s workshop in Hannover in 2003.
    I can‘t use it at the moment behause our rehearsing room is in an old train station and we get loads of hum from overhead cables there.
    Maybe another version with 3 Dynas and a Bigsby...

    Still in process. Some sort of custom shop.
    It would be based on the 6122JR shape (14" double cut hollow body).
    B3C
    Nckel hardware.
    Kluson Duesenberg Multi strap knobs/locks.
    Ebony board.
    Not sure of the other woods - probably laminate not carved but not sure.
    Over the top binding of some sort - maybe something like Herringbone or some sort of pattern.
    Not sure on pickups yet, need to try more of them. 2 or 3 pickups.
    Master volume.
    Mud switch or varitone equivalent.
    I'd like some sort of balance knob instead of 2 volume knobs.

    A 6120 with Telecaster pickups, because it's never been done before!

    Dyna Jet like George Harrison's. Because he used it to play my favorite rock & roll song ever.

    Custom Shop! No surprise if it ends up sounding like DeAmond 2000s :)

    Every guitar I keep turns out into my dreamguitar when they‘re customized to my liking and start breakin‘ in. And I really dig this:

    My 2005 G6136T White Falcon.
    I’ve dreamt of owning a White Falcon since i was 15 years old.
    Last year that dream came true at the age of 51.

    My 355 and Panther tick most of the boxes for me.
    Lately though, I keep thinking about a worn in Les Paul, maybe mid 70's to match my 355. Saw one at Gruhn in Nashville and almost made a road trip.

    Still would love a Silverburst LP if I could count on the Quality control.

    It's getting to where everything needs a mod or something done to it out of the box. I kindof don't want to buy anything to just up and have to modify it anyway at this point.
