There's two guitars I'd love to get for sentimental value. I had one but didn't know she played that model. Our family friend passed away of cancer when we were just kids . I remember her dancing ,singing and playing guitar with my grandmother on Sunday morning . Back when I was five or so . The other day I was on her daughters Facebook and creeping her photos when showed up a photo of her mom (Brenda) playing and 70s Yamaha with the diamond inlays . It looked just like my old Yamaha fg375s and sadly I must say regret selling.

The other is a cheaper guitar two years ago in November my biological uncle passed away of prostate cancer . It's sad to say I never heard of him until after he had past . After looking on YouTube I found his account and to my surprise he played guitar. Thanks to the friendly folks on these sites I found out his guitar was a Washburn x10 blue in colour. It's the ssh model. My biological grandmother has it . As you can probably notice I don't have much to do with them but I don't consider getting in contact with them a total loss. I got pictures of the family and learned some facts that really make me appreciate the life my adopted parents gave me . And thAt being said I couldn't sell my red silvertone I call Betty

No kidding. I've seen a few on ebay but out of my price range
Ebay is not where you should be looking. Try a proxy bidder like rinkya, there's a cost but ebay prices have just gone crazy the past couple of years. You will pay for an Orville P90 guitar no matter where you buy it. They're scarce and only come in black or gold.

I wish I could get my old RG410 back -- it was stolen.

I also wish I could get the old Jem 777 I saw at a local Cash Converters in 1993 or so for $800. I should have just bought it, but I was a student, and needed the money for other things..

a crazy hillbilly uncle of mine who doesn't play guitar ended up with a Martin 175th anniversary acoustic in mint shape. He bought it really cheap off an old widow he was doing work for

I offered to buy it, but he wanted to hold onto it. fair enough, but I was worried for the guitar since he was a raging alcoholic & not a very responsible person

sure enough, he took it to some bar jam and the headstock got snapped off.

damn shame

AFAIK it's somewhere in New Brunswick

Hmm--want vs need--so a Reso would be cool--wood body & metal body--tricone or biscuit.
An electric 12.
An ES135 or ES137
A Lap steel--
Oh, I could keep going on--even though I am happy with what I have.

A Gretsch Silver Falcon. Just because they're so cool.

A Southern Jumbo like my dad's, since he's still using his and I want him to keep using it for many years.

A decent LP and a Nylon Spanish...and probably a 5 strings bass. All for work. Then if I could really ask for more: a resonator, 2x12strings (electric and acoustic), a bronze acoustic with a jumbo body, ukulele, lute, Cuban Tres, sitar, buzuki, Kora, mandolin... Anything with strings will do!

I'd love to have an L5, but $15K is a little too far beyond my abilities. Not that I'd dare play such a guitar, I'd just admire it in its showcase for a couple hours a day

I'm not really sentimental about guitars but I wouldn't mind having a real nice PRS with a 1 3/4-1 7/8" nut.

Every time I see the title, I"m reminded of a David Letterman bit. He had a phone call from some guy in a rural area. Asked him if they get David Letterman out there. The guy said "Yea, we watch it every night" and David said: "Yea, I know you watch it, but do you get David Letterman out there."
