    Chris Squire from Yes. That Ric is associated with him only due to an altered body shape from being refinished so many times, and the color it ended up being (yellow-ish cream).

    I can’t think of many that haven’t been named. Disqualifying Les Pauls and Strats and so forth makes it more difficult, but understandable why they were excluded.

    Uli Jon Roth has his ridiculous ‘Sky Guitar’. Michael Schenker’s white Flying V. In the bass realm, Morphine’s Mark Sandman and his two string slide bass. Jack Bruce had a funky looking bass he used for the Cream reunion.

    That’s about all I got.

    The most heartbreaking fate for a guitar that launched a 1,000 bands in its wake... Bloomfield's Tele... not for the faint hearted!

    A goldtop Les Paul will make me think of Tom Scholz/Boston every time.

    Jimmy Page - Les Paul, maybe '58, '59 or '60. Shaved, refinished neck. No Serial Number so the build year is inconclusive.
    Eric Clapton - "Blackie" Stratocaster. Built from a body, neck, and electronics from at least two different vintage Strats.
    Eddie Van Halen - "FranenStrat". Built from Boogie Body body and neck, 50's Gibson PAF pickup, Schwinn bicycle paint and Floyd Rose Tremelo.
    James Marshall Hendrix - too many Strats to list!

    Prince’s symbol and cloud guitars are absolutely iconic with his image but I think the Madcat Telecaster is more iconic with his sound overall both on stage and in the studio, its the guitar he played his entire career.

    I’ve always thought that was a stupid looking guitar for him.
