    Time to eat humble pie and celebrate others. What are the most amazing guitars you’ve ever seen that isn’t yours?

    Here are my two entries. Would you look at that. One’s a friggin space nebula and the other is the most perfect flame, like ever. Mind blown away, nothing left...

    This was on Reverb recently. I made an offer, but it got purchased within hours by another. :(
    No one to blame but myself. Shoulda, couldn't, didn't. :mad:

    I once played the bespoke handbuilt Spanish classical guitar belonging to David Pleasance (David was the former Commodore UK boss). It played effortlessly. I didnt even realise that a guitar could be that easy to play at that point.

    I've long hankered after a period (50s or 60s) L5 also.

    You said guitar singular. There are far too many to just pick out one!

    Today I would say Veinbuster’s OG Bahama Mama SCT:

    Perfect TOL (original) inlay (with purfling)

    Man, dunno if I can pick a clear favorite outta everybody’s stash here.... if y’all could post all of your collections in their entirety, maybe that’d help?




    I wanted to post a picture of the replica but couldn’t dig through PSF to find it.
