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.
Joe Strummer 1966 Fender Telecaster
Mike Nesmith’s Blonde Gretsch
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.
Andy Summer 1961 Fender Telecaster
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
Muddy Waters Telecaster
Roy Buchanan Telecaster
George has a few iconic guitars. Skulls and Bones.
John Denver and his 12 string Guild acoustic
Johnny with his Gibson Firebird
Boosty Collins and his star bass
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
Can anyone identify, with certainty, what model Gibson Eric Clapton is playing at the Concert for Bangladesh?
I've heard arguments made that it is a Byrdland, an ES350T, and an L5. What say the experts?
The solos begin @ 1:44 and 3:07.
George Harrison & Eric Clapton - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Pat Metheny and his Picasso guitar
