The Gibson Firebird's been that guitar I really want for a while. I just love the less-extreme Explorer look of it, and PJ Harvey excellently demonstrated the unique sound of those mini-humbuckers in a Youtube video that I sadly can't seem to find now.

I've been looking at Fender Coronados lately. They're really not used by too many people as they were commercial failures and a lot of people expected hollowbodies to sound like a 335 or something stupid like that. The pickups on these things were actually engineered by the same person who designed the pickups on rickenbacker guitars. Another thing I like about these guitars is that super long tremolo for shoegazy goodness.



I've also been looking at Fender Jaguars too, but no explanation is needed as to why I would want one.

They're the group that Wildwoods came from, aren't they? There's some crazy wood colours going on in those guitars. But if it's shoegazy, it's obviously going to be good.

This Coro's look real cool but definitely seem a little hard to find.

And thats a magnificent jag. Id do some bad things to own that guitar.

I would go for a 52 RI Tele. First electric solidbody and it was done right.

I love teles to death, but if I were to get another 3 saddle tele then I'd go for the compensated brass saddles and replace the stock ones.

I would have to say that my favorite acoustic guitar is my '61 Gibson Humingbird that was passed down to me from my father. the sustain is incredible.

Not really a guitar, but:



An Almuse Jazzmaster Mandolin. I think the promise of being able to sound like a cross between Warren Ellis and Kevin Shields is luring me in to something I really don't need, and I'm ignoring the facts that I don't know how to play the Mandolin, don't have any kind of amplification for it, can't play left-handed even though I am a lefty, and couldn't hope to get my paws on enough money to get one. But still, that is a thing of beauty right there.

I played a 5-string Shector bass a couple of weeks ago for around $800 bucks, that I must have!

Not top of the line or high end by any means, but I like my Yamaha Pacifica.
