Blue Les Paul double cut.
Or a certain indescribable Telecaster.

Now I'm thinking I'd be perfectly happy with a Gibson SG Standard in heritage cherry.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

dream guitar

My dream guitar (solid body electric), to my knowledge, has never been produced by any of the reputable manufacturers. For me, itís not about the nameÖitís all about intonation, tone, sustain, versatility, playability and natural beauty. Therefore, I would want the following: a large swamp ash body (Telecaster or SG style, perhaps) with a beautiful, thick maple top (preferably Birdseye maple) and a clear gloss finish (smooth, rounded edges, no binding, no switch or knob plates and no pickgaurd); string-through body; set or set-in neck (42mm nut); a large radius, rosewood fretboard (21 or 22 regular size frets), inlaid mother-of-pearl fret markers; heavy-duty tuners, three rail-style humbucker pickups (like the Seymour Duncan Coolrails), three low-profile pickup toggle switches (or a single 7-way rotary switch); single volume and tone knobs; and a fixed-bridge vibrato/tremolo system. I would also want the back of the body to be carved for comfort and I would want it to be well balanced (no headstock diving). Weight is not an issue for me, but cost is. I wonder what the price of such an instrument would be.

My dream acoustic/electric would have to be something with a rosewood body and a Sitka spruce top.

My dream guitar is.......................................a Gibson SG. I would love to have one, but like many, I don't have the $$$. If anyone has one for sell, e-mail me at jonathanbraden@teamfca.com. Maybe I'll have some money then!

I had my choice and my two dream guitars when I was younger I now have--a Les Paul Custom (although mine had been modded before I bought it--and so it doesn't have much resale value, and then I modded it some as well.) But it is the guitar I play the most.

The other is my Ibanez Iceman.

For the future?

I think a National or other biscuit type reso.

I have a couple of nice Taylors that I am not unhappy with, but my dream guitar is being built for me now by Tim McKnight. ACOUSTIC GUITARS by MCKNIGHT GUITARS This is friend, Scott Allyn, playing a McKnight after which mine is modeled. http://www.mcknightguitars.com/media...hn-diamond.mp3. No, I don't play like that, but I love the rich, full tone from the big low end to the big, sparkling highs.

Here is Tim, marking for a special sound port in the side of mine, which lets the player hear more of what the people out front of the guitar are hearing.

I'll get to see and play this Dream Guitar for the first time at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival Healdsburg Guitar Festival in a couple of months. Man, I can't wait!!

I have my dream electrics, but I would really like an R. Taylor or Taylor Presentation Series Grand Auditorium cutaway - Adirondack top, Madagascar Ebony Back & Sides, Expression System.

In the real world, I'm saving for a Taylor 414CE - I played 314 to 914 and the 414 sounds best to my ears/playing style.
My Gear:
  • 2010 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro
  • 2009 Fender American Standard Strat with CS Texas Specials
  • 2004 Martin D-15
  • 2009 Alvarez AEL20EVV
  • 2009 Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass
  • 1989 Charvel "Dennis Worn" (rebuild in progress)
  • 1985 Fender MIJ Contemporary Stratocaster (got new as first "real" guitar)
  • Fender Mustang III Amp
