20 iconic guitars

Rolling Stone’s list is good, but clearly missing some iconic models. I think everyone’s list would be a little bit different.



  • Bill Paterson

    Fabulous collection!

  • Steve

    This should have been number 2 or 3. Eric Clapton and Todd Rundgren both played it. http://theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com/2009/11/12/the-psychedelic-sg-fool-guitar-eric-claptons-epic-gibson-growler/

    What about Steve Vai’s Ibanez Jem 777

  • Woolie

    Meh, what does Rolling Stone know about music? Now if this were about 20 iconic hairstyles…

  • Joe

    Good collection. They got Springsteen’s incorrect though. It’s not an Esquire, it’s actually a Telecaster with an Esquire neck.

    I’m not a musician or a luthier, but I’d be very interested to learn more about some of the modifications mentioned for these guitars and how they effect tone.
