    Would love to, but an 85' prs custom 24 is not going to be easy or cheap to come by...

    Also, their anniversary series every 5 years are hard not to justify as birthday gifts for the same age :-D

    The 30th might be the one... Not sure I can resist the specs this year...

    I almost picked up an 85 Ibby Roadstar II just cause of this reason. I should've, it was probably dope =/

    Since I'm a real fan of Ibanez S-series guitars, this would be fantastic for me.

    1989 Ibanez 540S-LPF. And yes, it definitely has to be the Desert Sun Yellow color, I absolutely love it! :hbang:

    Thing is so yellow it hurts my eyes looking at it. I'd definitely rock the shit out of that thing.

    I do plan to buy a 1986 G&L Rampage. Single humbucker and Kahler trem, like the ones Jerry Cantrell has played since the mid 80s.

    Also, if I'm dreaming here... An original '86 PRS. That pre-factory shiz! :metal:

    I have a 1991 Jackson Soloist but my birth year is 1994 though. Hmm, this Jem would definitely be a contender:

    I've been looking for the perfect tele to match my birth year for quite some time. I like the idea of having a guitar thats just as old as you. Nifty.

    Had a '92 RG550 I should've never sold, so the closest I have now is a '91 Jackson Stealth Custom. Might eventually grab another 550, but I really like the idea of a tele lately.

    I was born in '86, and I had an '87 RG560 for a while. Close enough?
