Default Iconic guitars

Hendrix's Strat, Slash's Les Paul, Angus Young's SG, Prince's Cloud. Some of the most iconic guitars of all time, but which is the most iconic? would love to hear all of your opinions and suggestions on this topic to find out really which is the most iconic guitar.

Three guitars that changed the world:
  • Les Paul's Log (a 4x4 with an Epiphone neck, and homemade low impedance p-ups. The Log replaced the Clunker that prove too heavy because it was made from a Railroad tie.)
  • Eddie Van Halen's Frankenstrat (PAF humbucker from a Gibson 335, and originally with a Fender Tremolo System, before a Floyd)
  • Clarence White's B-Bender Telecaster (It was build with help from Gene Parsons, drummer and mechanist, and parts of a pedal steel and other junk.)
My three favorite:
  • Steve Howe -Gibson ES-175
  • Cliff Gallup - Gretsch Duo Jet
  • Keith Richards - Gibson Sunburst Les Paul
  • Hank Marvin - Fender Fiesta Red Stratocaster
  • Brian May - Red Special aka Fireplace or the Old Lady (It was homemade with help from his father.)

Quality post^10. I had no idea they printed guitars with 3D printers already!

I don't know of anyone that actually plays one of these, but I've always found the harp guitar to be cool and intriguing.
