    Default Dream Guitars and your gear.

    K, please forgive me but I'm too tired, impatient and too fuckin' old to hit the search function for a prior thread. Meaning and as I'm sure there either is one or have been. Regardless, I always had fun with them at the army and since I've been dishonorably discharged from that site (lmao) I can't see the harm in starting one here?

    Anyhoo, please feel more than free to slap me if I've missed a recent one cos I only searched for a min or two before throwing in the towel and starting my own.

    Anyhoo, here are my axes. However two are noticably missing and one 'tis no longer a part of my collection...



    Here's my MAIN axe...



    K and now that that's said and done, let's go for a wish list (if you will?) of what you'd all have if $$$ were no option and you could buy/get whatever axe you wanted...

    I'll start with this one.

    It's a 1995 Surf Green Strat w/ a matching headstock. Everytime one becomes available, I'm tapped out. I'm prolly going to have to settle for a 1957 Surf Green Replica but I dig that matching headstock and AGAIN, they (Fender) actually produced a couple hundred in 1995.

    Regardless, I want one and thus beginning my list.

    EAT US AND SMILE!!!!

    K and now 'tis time for numero deuce...

    I've been wanting another Paul for a bit but as we all knowm they're soooo friggin' expensive and especially when one's just adding to their collection and it's not really necessary. However, what fun is that? lol

    Alright, I'd absolutely LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE a good 'ol fashioned gold top but even old ones are just as spendy (if not more) than purchasing a new one.

    Regardless, here's an ode to that puppy...



    Now and when/if I ever get one, the pickguard and pickup covers are comin' right off.

    As long as I'm having nocturnal emissions regarding dream guitars, I'd also love to have this axe and both when/if I do actually purchase another Paul, I've been really diggin' this finish for about a year now.

    K and get ready to throw yer bowls of queerios my way but this finish is called "Latte CrŤme" and I think it's georgeous.

    I have yet another "dream" or "wish list" guitar (if you will?) but first, I have a backstory *snore* and questions to go along with them.

    K,

    The year was 1991 and our (then) hero EVH made a much ballyhooed switch from Kramer to Ernie Ball. Now and not only did EVH endorse the product but as legend has it, he helped a Mister Sterling Ball design them.

    At the time, I was quite Anti-VH and was not interested in either playing nor purchasing his product. However, I did pick up and plug in one at Sam Ashe whilst in Manhattan. Well, I loved the fucker. It was a black/wood grained/stained type finish.

    Regardless, I never purchased one and we all know that EVH's relationship w/EBMM went sour.

    Here's a pic I found of the EVH model. It might be pink but I still think it's fucking cool and I also think that our own Empy 'tis fortunate enough to own this exact axe, no?



    Alright and I'll get on with it...

    I'd love to own one of these axes but what is (if any?) differences between the EVH EBMM and the EBMM AXIS' models?

    Anyhoo, I'd still love to own that black/woodgrained EVH thing I played back in 1992.

    Are these EVH's or axis'?



    Please explain cos neither have ever been sold in SLC?

    Also, what's the difference cos they look identical to me?

    I think they're all AXIS' EXCEPT the purple one - you can tell because of the location of the pickup switch: on the AXIS, it's next to the volume knob - on the EVH, it's on the body horn...

    I also have a 5150 rep (not pictured) which has been in pieces for the better part of two years.

    Seriously, I'm BEYOND impressed with your artwork. My friend and I are thinking of tackling the EC "Fools" axe and could use your help?



    We're thinking of using a more modern color palette as opposed to the hippie-dippie but still the same idea cos we scored an old SG for a decent price.

    Anyhoo, that's a BEYOND nice collection you have there andd this is what I'm talking about!!!

    Let's keep the pics coming!!!

    As far as dream guitars go, I've been playing more bass as of late and wish I had this thing:



    Basically a Fender Jazz body with unfinished, one-piece maple neck and the electronics from the Stu Hamm Urge II Bass...AND the Hipshot d-tuner to boot...



    The color in the pic is not quite right, though - it should look more like this red:

    Yeah! When I saw Vai a couple years ago, Sheehan had that same color on one of his basses and it looked BADASS...
