Getting To Know The Top 10 Most Famous Guitars

A couple of weeks ago, Ultimate-Guitar.com conducted a survey on one of their forums to name the top 10 most iconic guitars ever.

Now the results are in, and I have to say that the set is truly impressive. Just to give you the shortened version, here is the complete lineup (feel free to visit the original thread for a complete description of each guitar):

1. Jimmy Page’s EDS-1275 Double Neck Gibson

EDS-1275-Double-Neck-Gibson

2. Brian May’s Red Special

Red-Special

3. Edward Van Halen’s Frankenstrat

Frankenstrat

4. Jimi Hendrix’s Backwards Stratocaster

Backwards-Stratocaster

5. B.B. King’s ES-355 ‘Lucille’

ES-355-Lucille

6. Randy Rhoads’ Polka Dot V

Polka-Dot-V

7. David Gilmour’s Black Stratocaster

Black-Stratocaster

8. James Hetfield’s ‘EET FUK’ Explorer

'EET-FUK'-Explorer

9. Tony Iommi’s Gibson SG Special ‘Monkey’

Gibson-SG-Special-Monkey

10. Steve Vai’s Ibanez JEM

Ibanez-JEM

The only surprise for me is that Steve Vai’s guitar has come this late on the list. I’m sure it deserves a better place.

What’s your favorite guitar from the list above? Or maybe the survey has missed some iconic instruments that deserve to be placed on the list?
