Despite my username, it would definitely be an LP of some sort. I'd have to play a few and take my pick.
All rock and roll bands are on the verge of breaking up at all times.

Assuming it would be the same as one I’ve actually played, a ‘59 Strat would be high up the list

I actually don’t know right now, will have to give it some thought. Guessing my answer will change depending on how I’m feeling; I think sometimes the guitars I desire is influenced by what I’m listening to.

Mine wouldn’t change. A downpatrick era Lowden 0 series and a Rickenbacker 360 with Higain pickups. My backup guitar however would change from a bad 335 copy to the real thing

Well... I play acoustic bass guitar and there's not a lot that I really, really like out there, so I'd probably get someone to build me one, a bit Alembic looking, with F holes. I suppose it'd be cool to have an Earthwood bass, because that's as close to vintage gear as ABGs get.

Funny, one guitar that would be a consideration would be the best Red Special I could find; maybe one of the Guyton’s.

Kossoff’s LP or another ‘players condition’ 1959 LP would also make me a happy bloke.
