    In a pure fantasy, given unlimited cash and a willing seller, which famous player's guitar would you most like to own? Not a signature model, but the actual Pearly Gates, Trigger, Old Black, Frankenstein, etc ...

    My Choice (if only for Mrs MT) : The Red Special.

    No one but SHE is worthy to own it, but I’d love to behold Poison Ivy’s 1958 Gretsch 6120!

    I had to really think about this.....my first thought was the guitar Tony Iommi used to record his early Sabbath albums....or Brian Setzer's original Gretsch (the one that made me want one, all those years ago)....

    But...I think, strangely enough, I'd have to go with one of Elvis's guitars from either the 68 comeback special, or the Aloha from Hawaii concert...... I know for him, they were more decoration than anything else, for the most part, but ...man....how cool would it be to own one of "The King's" guitars....lol

    Well, this one.



    Dream of having that talent too, but I know, only one guitar dream.

    Implicit in this ownership is being magically endowed with the previous owner's skill:

    As much as I love the Fortus Falcon this one is the dream guitar. Gene Autry's Custome ordered D-45 Martin.
