If I had a Million Dollars...

OK guys, imagine you win the lottery. If you could have any 5 guitars in the world, which would they be?

 

My top picks:

 

2009 R9 - HCS

2007 LP Standard - Honey Burst

1962 Fender Stratocaster Reissue- Ocean Turqouise

Gibson SJ-200 True Vintage Acoustic- Vintage Sunburst

Gibson Firebird Studio- Ebony

 

Keep in mind I chose guitars that I would actually play regularly, as I'm not much of a collector...

And I know the last one isn't exactly a "lottery" guitar, but I just can't get over how cool those guitars look.

Sweeeeeeet! I'll play:

 

1. Jimmy Page's "the One"

2. Edward's "Frankenstein"

3. B.B.'s "Lucille"

4. Stevie Ray's "Lenny"

5. Tim's R9

 

 

 

**Edit**

 

I am a lottery winner! Won $2 on a $2 ticket! I didn't buy any guitars with it, though.....

OK, let's see

 

1.) Jimmy Page signature LP (probably keep this one under glass)

2.) The most expensive custom shop LP Custom in silverburst

3.) One of those reissue guitars you guys brag about. I'd want the 1960 model so I guess that's an R0?

4.) Reissue of LP goldtop with the P.90s and the wrap around stopbar

5.) Original of every model LP Special and Jr. from the early 60's. Single and double-cut. Most in TV yellow plz.

I wouldn't buy ANY guitars in the beginning.

 

I'd build a studio and make it a really good place to be. Weighted towards guitar based music, either solo or band, acoustic or electric, with all the facilities.

 

Then I would encourage the nicest musos to use the facility to rehearse and record. Then maybe if a really nice guitar came by that called out to me, I might make the owner an offer. But the fun and pleasure of having players playing and enjoying would be better than ANY guitar hanging on a wall or (worse yet) unplayed in a case behind glass.....
