    Yeah, looks like a Rex Bogue.

    McLaughlin's Double Rainbow didn't last long. It was only around for a few years 'til it had an accident. For a while, Ibanez did a fancy doubleneck that was reminiscent, but not quite as detailed.

    Diamond Darrell played some Dean ML guitars and I think the lightning bolt one may be the most wide known. Later Washburn made ML copies for him.

    Jason Becker had a custom Peavey numbers guitar. Later Carvin reissued it and a similar Blue Carvin DC200 that he played later. Carvin changed their name to Kiesel and they still make several versions of the numbers guitar and the Blue DC200.


    Jason Becker- "Blue"

    Honestly, whoever was playing them... pick out you’re favourite guitar and it’s their touch that distinguishes- which is why there’s a hundred threads dedicated to what guitar player played which guitar when, but you can still pick a Hendrix, Clapton or Harrison solo from a thousand paces

    I'm sure his guitar was selected as a homage to his heroes, but I now associate the Gretsch 6120 with Brian Setzer.

    Buckethead’s Les Paul, which is larger scaled than a normal Les Paul and of course very distinct look:
