From a purely visual perspective, what's the most incredibly gorgeous instrument you've owned?

I'm going with this Rick 381:

Hmm. Tough one. Possibly a toss up between my Cali Elite Custom and my Custom Shop LP Axcess. Behold:

For me its a toss up between my Phantom Custom and a Larrivee SD-60 I once owned.

I really wanted to love that fat larri, but the 1 7/8" neck was too much for my hands. Also prefer the tone of Martin of Larrivee.

For me it's a toss-up between my Dragon and my long lost 81 Hamer color graphic Special. I don't even have a pic of the Special to cry over, she's lost to the ages...

Don't have any pics here at work but everyone knows the guitar. In early 85 while in college I bought the Ibanez DT-555 Collen set neck. Opening the case on that with its shiny black and 3 PU creme goodness used to be a thrill each and every time...and it played (and still plays waaaay fast. it's still my all-time favorite "looker"

But that Rock Neilson Burst on Ebay right now tugs at me the same way every time I see it. My 91' MM EVH Purple Quilt was so beautiful when new before it faded a bit.

This one chokes me up a bit. When I was 18 I had a Ric 4001 that had similar cosmetics.

Yours is just awesome! That pic could become some wallpaper...

the one in the sig

I think if I could ever add this to my list of guitars owned I could stop right there. It's been a fave from the first time I saw it here.
