OK I've changed my mind. I'm really lusting after a Jackson Soloist Bengal right now. Those tiger stripes with black hardware look really cool.

I could care less about what my guitar looks like.


For me, there is no one guitar that does it all.

But the closest I've found is my '91 PRS Custom 24.
But my '93 Jackson Soloist USA can do things the PRS can't do...
But then, neither will replace my '82 Les Paul Custom.

Gibby wins 80% of the time.
My opinion is only valid if you're playing OLDER ROCK.

My dream guitar is a Lefty Jackson Rhoads. It also must come with the pick of destiny so I can just shred and part the oceans with my riffage. :twisted:

If I could only have one it would be my Jackson SL2H GGF. I would hate to give up my Ovation Elites though.

I'd probably go with a Petrucci BFR 7-string...

Yeah - METAL!

I pretty much have a diff. dream guitar depending on music type. I have my dream metal axe; 1991 Gibson Explorer Tobacco sunburst w/ 57 classic + in the bridge. For bluesier rock stuff, I am really lusting after an aged ES 137 and a Siennaburst USA ash strat w/rosewood.

Later!
Good trade w/mattfig, walshinator 666, jdj8282, stratoman, Rod, big brewtus and casey hanson. GtrGeorge, and Squid Music

This forum fires on all 8 (12?) cylinders! Glad I joined up!

My dream guitar would be a 59' Les Paul.
If I were to somehow, inexplicably, obtained it I would:
Wake up, sell it, and buy every other guitar I've ever dreamed of, Buy a Ferrari, and Mattfig's rig. :lol: :lol: :lol:
