2Fender Stratocaster

Definitely the most influential guitar model of all time. Just look at other guitar brands like Ibanez or Jackson; almost all guitar brands have a strat-shaped model. Just think what would happen if the stratocaster was never invented.. THE HORROR! - aeromaxx777

I have a American deluxe strat and tele. Amazing quality, tone and sustain. Never needs tuning regardless how long it stays in the case. I have a Gibson les paul that pretty much stays in the case.

it is by far the best guitar that you'll ever see. it is also the best sounding guitar ever made.

Half the guitars you see in the world today are copied from this legendary model. Fifty-seven years, and no-ones tired of it!

3Gibson SG

Used by rock legends like Angus Young and Pete Townshend, the SG stands for 'Solid Body' and it was made following the success of the Les Paul. - lilbullet111

Its easy to play than a les paul and it better looks better than a les paul and sounds better and les havey and a gibson sg double neck is even better

4Gibson Dark Fire

Beautiful robot series Gibson. Tunes itself! - lilbullet111

How can you go wrong with this futuristic guitar of wonders? Sure, you can't play it sitting down, but why sit down when you can... stand up? Anyway. you look great playing them! - lilbullet111

6B.C. Rich Mockingbird
7Fender Telecaster

So many to choose from. Single coil, humbuckers, P90. 2 and 3 pickup versions. Maple and Rosewood necks, Ash, Alder, Pine bodies. Solid body, semi-hollow.
The twang is what makes them famous. Just superb.

8Gibson ES-335

Known famously for a Jazz and Blues guitar and it's fat body, it has quite recently been brought into the rock and roll world from guitarists like Jet singer/guitarist Nic Cester. - lilbullet111

9Gibson X-plorer

Brought out with the futuristic series of Gibson Guitars, this breakthrough came out with the successful Flying V and the forgotten Moderne, wich is rarely seen nowadays. It was used live for the song 'Freebird' by guitarist Allen Collins. - lilbullet111

10Gibson Firebird X

It's the best guitar I have ever seen! It looks so awesome and sounds so great! Its really light and comfortable and easy to play! You can play reaaly fast on it! Its gibson's best guitar! - winner333

The Contenders

11H.S. Anderson Mad Cat

This is just a list of 'most commonly used guitars'... I thought we were talking about coolest? If so: prince's madcap ('leopard' plate/ the one he played at rhof) heavy as hell with interference. Also perfect. Also a lynchpin in his unique style

One of Jimmy Page all time favourites, this double-neck Gibson Guitar is only for the pros. - lilbullet111

13Ibanez JS Series
14Ibanez RG Series
15Maton Guitars

These great Australian acoustics are used in the hands of unbelievable finger-pickers like Tommy Emmanuel and Smokin' Joe Robinson. - lilbullet111
