    That’s a good question... I’m assuming that you have to keep it, can’t sell it. As much as I’d want to say some high end ultra cool acoustic, it just wouldn’t get played enough so I guess I’d have to say a new Fender George Harrison Rosewood Tele. But if I could pay a ton of money maybe I could get a custom built Reverend just to my spec....that would be pretty cool. Deafsoundguy signature series. Has a nice ring to it. 3D693A68-FA73-477D-94F5-CDC92DBEA01F.jpeg A932AAB1-9DB5-4763-891E-18DEC9AF84BE.jpeg 6

    That's easy for me. I'd grab a Duane Allman 59 Burst that they released around 2013/14 or whenever it was.

    Either that or one of the '1 Brother to Another' Signature SG's that are recreations of the '61 SG that Dickey gave to Duane.

    Or a Derek Trucks Signature SG that's based on the '1 Brother to Another' SG with his modifications. I believe Duane's daughter gave Derek a pre-production model. #2 artist's proof, I think?


    That's about the extent of what I'd choose from.

    Do you have to spend all on one? If not, I think I would hunt down every Classic Vibe Strat once, then take the spare change to buy a nice Semi Hollow. Or Japanese Fenders... Options are endless!

    I have an SG Standard with a Maestro and a Les Paul Special with P90's but this would be perfect for me.

    Spending 10k on a guitar is the equivalent of spending your monthly wage οn a cup of coffee...no matter how you think about it...it doesnt compute.

    The only guitar, or guitars I'd like to have would be a 335 and an EJ Strat. Neither one even close to 10K. Could do both for that for that and a nice amp
