Well' date=' since I was a little kid and I saw Michael J. Fox playing "Joohny B. Goode" with a cherry red Gibson ES-335 on "Back To The Future", I´ve gotta say, that was love at first sight...Don´t know when I´ll be able to afford one, but as soon as I get the money, I´ll have one of those...what about you guys?[/quote']

 

He actually played an ES-345 in Back to the future, which was a bit of a mistake as it wasn't released until 1959!

My dream acoustic I already own, a 1962 Levin "Goliath"( I need to take some pics). Dream electric/semi would be a 64/65 Casino in Ice Tea finish, but I`ll settle for my John Lennon 65 reissue for now!

One of my dream guitars i already own' date=' the superb Yamaha sa2000s, however

i still long for a gretsch, particularly the white falcon, doublecut with a 2inch deep body:

Peter,

 

How is the playability of the Yamaha sa2000s?

The Bigsny tem arm on the Gretsch White Falcon doesn't suit it in my opinion.

 

 

i agree..that guitar is too fancy, looks like its gonna broke when you play it

With a Bigsby the enitre stystem is meant to look bulky and robust like th B7/B70 it's just personal opinion but the colour scheme is one i love White on Gold True vintage.

Got most of my "Dream" guitars' date=' already. But...there's always a couple more. In my case, they're both Gibsons:

An ES-345, and a VOS SG Standard w/Maestro. Ah...[i']SOMEDAY[/i]!! LOL!

SG Standard w/Maestro? In earlier posts, you may recall my "war story" that I let my '63 go for $500.00. Duh!! Can't remember where I saw it on the web, but recall seeing a $30K sticker on a '62. WOW... The picture below is not mine, but is the same guitar. ............J

Well, Jepi....we've all got "war stories," and guitars we wish we hadn't sold, for whatever reason.

I can think of 5 I wish I'd never sold or traded off. But, that's life! Besides, then...who knew?!

They were just "used guitars!" There wasn't this "Vintage insanity," around then.

Crazy days for sure. I paid $50 (it was just sitting in a closet) for it, early 70's and some 10 or so years later, the guy I bought it from asked if I would sell it back to him. Never thought he could come with $500 cash, but he did the very next day then had it stolen out of his Van within a few months. The only thing I have left is the original bridge and a few pics somewhere. There's a couple others that pain me as well, but as you said "who new?!".................J

HNGD to me, my new PRS SE One was delivered today.

Tobacco Sunburst Single-cut Junior style, one P90 and wrap-over bridge-tailpiece.

My dream guitar for the moment.

 

Sorry no camera, no pics, but it happened for me.8-[/
