These aren't the most expensive by any means but getting the older ones  in a left-handed version would make them pretty rare


1957 Fender Strat  2-tone sunburst

30's  National Style "0" metal-bodied resonator

1967 Martin D-35 braz. sides and 3-pc. back

Gibson J-200  sunburst

Santa Cruz  H-13 

I am a man of simple tastes.   Nothing strange or exotic on my list.   If I had these added to my current guitars I'd be a very happy man.   Well...... I could use a '52 tele also   whistling

In no order:

Larrivee LS -- regular scale/nut width
Santa Cruz D
Lowden F -- not sure which
Dermot Mcilroy -- one of the A models
Er, and maybe a nice old Martin. I've never played one. They are supposed to be good I hear!

I'll take a crack at this....in no particular order!

Bashkin 00 12 fret Spruce over Madi
1930's Martin 00-18
1930's Gibson L-00
Tippin OM Carathian over Braz....I played this one at the Montreal Guitar show and almost wet myself....it was hard to even believe     the tone coming out of it...and it was gorgeous to boot!!
Santa Cruz Custom OM Adi over Mahogany...short scale

I guess that would keep me happy for awhile... .....Of course I would have to keep Mary Helen as well... bowdown

I'll have to get back to you...

First I will need to jet around the continent(s) and visit the top Luthiers and Dealers. If I have access to lots of money I am going to try before I buy.

I also suspect that becoming a rich sob will make me intolerant of any wait times. This will be one item I need to buy off the rack.

Probably start at a shop like Dream Guitars.  I'm sure I could find a couple there that I could live with.  Then add an old Martin D42 or D28 (or both).  Order a custom from Steve Grimes.  Probably look for an old Jumbo Gibson or an R.Taylor.  And I get to keep what I already have, right?
