    I don't think you quite get the intent of the thread or the OP.

    As did Andy Fraser with Free, another terrific bass player from the late '60s-early '70s.

    I'd say the Ibanez Iceman was more iconic. Loads of guitarists bought these. Guitarist in my first band had one.

    In BTO's heyday, Randy Bachman used two Strats, a white one, and a yellow one with a Canadian flag sticker. Always thought the one with the sticker was pretty identifiable as Bachman's.

    And I confess I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned John Fogerty's 'Centerfield' baseball bat guitar (which I have seen up close and personal at the baseball hall of fame).

    And I know Seger plays a Les Paul these days and is more often seen with an acoustic, but I'll always associate him with Telecasters, especially his 80's hollowbody tele.

    I really question the taste of people who like ugly guitars. I mean, those headless ones are the worst of all time. Small bodies and no headstock, man that's a pairing from hell.

  13. If I had to name just one example, it's always going to be Brian May's homemade Red Special:

    Rick Nielsen is the first one that comes to mind. The checkerboard Hamer.

    I know the black one was featured, but when I see a red SG I think of Iommi

    Iconic that mean the most to me:

    JP - Gibson Les Paul Sunburst

    JP- Gibson Cherry Doubleneck (EDS-1275)

    RN - Any of his 5-necked guitars
