dream guitars: a list

It's time, y'all.
I have now officially reached the point in my Blogging Journey
where it's time to tell you about my list of dream guitars. 

I don't spend as much time as I'd like in music stores; while I frequently hit up the record shop for vinyl albums, I rarely gaze at guitars at my local music shop. (What a shame!)

But lately, I've been listening to more rock music and have found myself obsessed
with not only the wonderfully bright sound of electric guitars, but also how they appear.

Side Note: At what point did this blog became indulgently over-saturated with gifs?
And yes, if you're wondering, I have a gif for that. ;)

Listening to more rock music has also driven me to practice my own guitar skills.
The best part about this is deceiving myself into feeling like a rock goddess when in reality, no.

Feeling like a rock star when really:

Even if I'm not a rock star, having the right guitar can make one feel at least a teensy bit more hardcore.
Not that I own any of these beauties, but hey, a girl can dream!

By no means comprehensive!

The "I want to play in a Beach Boys cover band" guitar

Also known as the perfect guitar to play on summer nights, or when singing Alvvays songs.
I've never been a fan of powder blue, but light blue guitars like this one are just so old school.
Groovy like a drive-in movie, baby.

Possible name: Chloe, or Juno

The "I want to feel like every classic guitar hero ever" guitar

Something about this is just so rockin'. I love the black pick guard. 
In life, you really can't go wrong with black and white combos, 
and that logic proves true when it comes to guitars, too.

Possible name: Ramone, or Sergeant Pepper

The "Jet black heart" guitar

I just discovered the existence of this limited time Fender Strat, and though it has sadly sold out, I like the idea of having an all black instrument. This one is probably my favorite! 

Possible name: Onyx, or Jett

There you have it, my current list of dream guitars. Snazzy.

+ What about you? Do you have a list of dream instruments? Which guitar is your favorite?


  1. these are beautiful guitars indeed! I'm not a musician even though I like the music! you have a lot of talent, between writing and music, bravo !!

  2. *stares in awe at all the pretty instruments* I don't play the guitar, but I have an odd obsession with them still. I'm a piano girl myself (and a wanna-be guitarist), but those guitars are BEAUTIFUL. I especially love the "Beach Boys" and "Jet Black Heart" guitars.

    1. Even if you don't play, guitars are just so beautiful. The piano is such a gorgeous instrument...I wish I knew how to play. One day! :D

  3. I don't play guitar, but these are some neat looking guitars. ^ ^ I play the piano though. I currently have a Chickering upright, but I've played on Yamahas and even several Steinways. I'd like to get a baby grand piano again like I had growing up, but the only problem is space. XD

    1. Aren't they wonderful? :) And a baby grand?! Oh, how beautiful that would be! Pianos are so elegant. It would be so cool to have a room with tall windows to just sit and play the piano in.


Go with grace.
