if you could only have one guitar, what would it be?

    My 91 S540LTD.

    It started life in red:

    But, I'm not a huge red guitar fan, so I had it painted Corvette blue:

    Then I put an Invader in it and really woke it up.

    While I love my Jackson 7s, this is my "bury me with this guitar" guitar.

    That Ibby S became almost identical to the original blue model. I have one similar to that but with the AANJ (the blue one), which I added the Seymour Duncan Tripleshot rings, DiMarzio pickups and a crazy wiring scheme that give me a hell lot of different tones. I almost never play with her, but won't sell...

    Came here to post this! If it doesn't feel or play better than my RGA121s, I don't really need it.

    It would be most likely something I designed, since no production model has exactly what I want.

    My "pazuzu" LACS. 14 years old now, and still rules. Shame it isn't a 7, but if I could only have one, this'd be it. All the others are replaceable and I could find another.

    My Schecter California Custom Shop Hollywood Classic Prototype. Flip Flip Gold / Violet finish, archtop w extra scooped cutaways. One of a kind. Really lucky find from GuitarCityDrumLand. This thing makes me so happy. When I am at work I smile knowing its at my place. Sounds like a monster and just make me feel good.

    My JS10th. I've played a few different guitars recently, most really nice and i enjoyed playing them. Then I pick up first wife (real wife's nickname for the JS...) and it's like... home.

    Never ever want to part with it.

    It doesn't exist, but it would be something like the PRS MCCarty 594 but with the body thickness of a custom 24 and a pattern thin neck.

    Without a doubt, it would be Jim Root's sandblasted Jazzmaster.

    I have no idea what my answer would be, but this question makes me wonder what kind of guitar I could get if I truly had unlimited funds....like maybe Toone? or Teuffel? Like just ridiculous designs that are like $30k and actually worth that much.
