Plain black pick guard cover. 

I don't care where the pickup selector switch is, but I lean toward "down by the volume and tone knob" more so than the usual spot. 
Keep it under $1,300 US Dollars, please. 

That is all.

hmmm. ok...

 a Les Paul Standard with:

uncomfortably wide neck,

brass zero-fret nut that wears away quickly,

childlike scribble of the Les Paul logo on the headstock plus a weird hologram of Les doing a Star Trek greeting on the back, 

super cool looking G Force robo-tuners (this should really be mandatory),

in an odd looking brown plastic case.

...oh, and at the 2015 extra high prices please!!

And bring me a BFG with a slim taper neck and the original pickup combo of P90 and BB3...

I wouldn't mind owning a white Firebird with the mini humbuckers.

I don't think there is much you would mind owing expect a Fender.

1984 Explorer re-issue with Dirty Fingers (contrary to what some folks will tell you, I think the "new" Dirty Fingers are just fine). 

Why go after ESP et al if they're not gonna have a 1984 Explorer for sale? The 1984 Explorer looks like the ESP lawsuit Explorers, but IMHO doesn't look like Explorers with pickguards. 

Mind you, not buying atm, but I think they should be perennial in the range.

There are about 36 LP models, 19 SG's if you count the double neck as an SG, 12 ES's, 12 or 13 of the Designer models, and billions of acoustics.

How many more do you want. I remember when the site under Henry's reign had over 100 LP's. Do you want to go back to that?

Don't know why I asked I know the answer is - Yes.

to be honest my 335's have kinda ruined me as far as playing other guitars. I still do, and enjoy them but the 335's are it.

Yeah when I had my BB King and played guitars that plug in that one was head and shoulders better that any electric I ever owned.

Steve Ford will tell ya its the illusive Firebird VII. What are the differences between Firebird models I - VII? 

X was a s-hit show.

I have a Firebird VII, it's on a stand right next to me.  It's a bruiser to play just like I remembered.  It kind of feels like something that belongs in a marching band next to the bassoon.

It's mostly number of pick ups for 1, III (gets a whammy bar) and V, the VII has an ebony fret board, Lyre tail piece and 3 pick ups plus it weighs a bit.  Kind of like the difference between a 335 and a Lucille, same thing just more upscale and heavier with a stouter neck.  Same family but a whole different feel to it.
