The most awesome guitar I've played to date was an early 60's Les Paul Standard.
It had a nice slim neck, and bite that had me diggin in to every note. It was sweet!

Hmm, there's a couple that come to mind as pretty cool guitars I've played.

A late 60's (IIRC) Gibson L-5 in pretty much mint condition. Made me feel like Wes for the ten minutes I got to play it. Probably my favorite choice of the bunch.

My boss has a Gibson archtop (don't remember the model) from either the 20's or 30's (again can't remember exactly) that I've strummed a couple chords on.

My Cort hollowbody might count because there's a possibility that Larry Coryell had it at one point in time.

While this last one isn't strictly a guitar, I played a bass this past Saturday that was a six string with four standard tuning fretted strings and two fretless strings on top which repeated the G and D. I thought that was kinda cool.

I was thinking as much, or perhaps the Midiaxe system, tho the Midiaxe never seemed to really take off.

For me, it has to be my John Mayer Strat simply because Mayer has been my biggest musical influence. So, when I bought the JM Strat a couple years ago I was ecstatic, needless to say I still am to a point.

My new Gibson Midtown Custom though is a close second. It is just such a fun and exciting guitar to play. It looks great, feels even better and has that wonderful Semi-Hollow tone that just rocks.

For me, it was a 1965 Fender Jaguar. A vintage Jaguar has been my dream guitar ever since I was a kid watching Kurt Cobain play, and I finally got to play one for the first time a couple weeks ago.

If you run across a pic, but sure to post it. That might give us a lead.

I don't see the guy much anymore, and he may not still have it, he's one of those guys who buys and flips on a regular basis, but if I see him and he does, I'll be sure to get a pic. He may know what system it was, I *think* he was the one who installed it.

Yeah, I would be interested to know. I'm working on a breadboard guitar, and am looking to sort all those sorts of things out.

For me it would be Caparison guitars. I bought one because I am a Mattias Eklundh fanboy and I fell in love with it from the first note. Everything just felt right on it. I bought an Applehorn and a Dillenger. Amazing guitars.

I don't know exactly what it was. My grandparents neighbor was a guitar collector and he brought an Epiphone acoustic electric from the '30s over for me to try. It played amazing, but did need a but of a tune up. The electronics were antique.
