Utilitarian these days and try not to have object fetishes, but i still hanker for the old guitars due to falling for the hype at times. Norms Rare Guitars videos mostly..
I would find a guitar that I like the sound of and feels good to play in the way the lets me hit the notes and bends the way I am thinking them. Most likely it would be a Gibson because I am so used to them. If i came into lots of money, i think i would be hard pressed to do much better than my current one.
Fret work is really important to me, so i would spend money on that. if the crown on the frets is not right I can get my fingers struck when sliding up the neck. It's kind of like how tall people bang their heads in doorways. It messes me up for a second or two and makes me lose my place.
I do not have an acoustic currently. I have a thing for those old Guild ones. That might be on the shopping list.
I also like stuff with the word 'super' in the name. Super Reverb, Superlead, and even Supro. A Torpedo Studio to run them and better monitors would be nice, but even better would be a big barn out in the country with amps at one end and a long curly cable going to the other. Loud PA too, so i can still jam to my bedroom guitarist backing tracks.
