Your guitar wishlist?

Hey, bassists and guitarists. I'm curious which guitars/basses would you ask for, or perhaps have in mind to get eventually. You can name as many as you want (as guitar lovers, we would like dozens of them; still, let's try not to surpass 20 to be more realistic... lol), with any price (could be a cheap one if you think you should get THAT guitar too). It can be only guitars, only basses or both.

Oh, and perhaps you wanna share which ones you have already, just to get to know your current arsenal (and make me jealous in the process).

I have a modest collection of two: a MIM '10 Fender Standard Jazz Bass and a '10 Epiphone G400 guitar.

My wishlist would be (so far):


- Musicman Sterling Ray

- Fender Highway Jazz Bass

- 5 string bass (Ibanez SR5005 or Fender Jazz)

- Fretless bass (a Fender Jazz or Precision)

- Ibanez SR800

- Steinberger XS-15FPA Custom

- Kramer D-1


- Gibson SG Standard, Special or Angus Young Signature

- GIbson Les Paul Goldtop or Studio Wine Red

- Fender Standard Telecaster

- Gibson 7-string Explorer


@Gilbert Zala - Yeah, I know, man. I also would think of at least 10 more basses/ guitars I would like to get. But those I listed are also off the top of my head.

Update 2:

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention my previous guitar. It was an Epiphone Les Paul Special II (just sold it). Good enough to begin learning, but now I'm kinda beginner-intermediate, going more and more towards intermediate, I needed a more versatile guitar. Hence, the SG.

Update 3:

@ Ivan - I know Squier Affinity are basically stringed garbage. But what would you think about a standard Squier Tele (I tried one who was about $300 Canadian, and wasn't that bad IMHO)? Although I think I'd rather spend a few more to get a MIM Fender Standard Tele... probably it's way better, but I haven't tried either Squier nor Fender guitars. But is it worth the extra money?

Update 4:

@ OU812 - Thanks, man. It's good to know one doesn't have to break the pocket to get a decent guitar. I will consider the Classic Vibe Tele for a next guitar.

Update 5:

@ EVERYONE - Thanks for your replies. I might add some of your choices to my own wishlist. Since there is not "right" or "best" answer for this question, I can't choose one, so I'm gonna put this in voting soon.

    The main guitars I'd really like to add to my collection right now would be a Gibson Custom Shop Johnny A Signature and an SG Elegant Quilt Top. Wouldn't mind having a Taylor 814CE either. I have 8 currently and going past 10 is just too many to play and keep in tune for me. Squier does actually make some decent guitars. The standard Squier's are pretty darn good guitars for the money and the Classic Vibes are better than most guitars costing twice as much. I have an MIM Tele and seriously the Classic Vibe Squier is a little better in my opinion. You have to play one to believe it. It is about $130 less than the MIM Tele. I do love my MIM though, don't get me wrong.
