Kurt Cobain's acoustic from the MTV unplugged concerts.

They just sold the acoustic 1959 Martin D18 for 6 million in early June this year.

Amazing someone would pay 6 million for a guitar, but what do I know.

Stevies. While I respect willie and what he’s brought to music, when I think of highly sought after guitars, I want one from a legendary guitarist, not just a musician that played guitar.

Out of those 2, easy choice by a million miles for which one I'd rather have...SRVs.

SRV's

But if I could pick any famous guitar, my first choice might be Jimmy Page's Les Paul.

Duane guy as well. It’s Bananas he was only 25 when he died.

Stevie Ray , Jimi, and Duane were, in my opinion, three of my top 5 favorite guitar players along with probably Clapton, Buddy Guy, and BB King...yeah i know that’s 6...Jimmy Page must be in there somewhere too!

Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits is probably the top of the next tier...

I should have been more specific.

The '57 Goldtop is nice, but I prefer the Gulwing Burst that became know as "Hot 'Lanta"

You kidding me? Willie Nelson's guitar all the way. Don't know the answer to which one would sell for the most but Trigger is a singular sounding guitar albeit linked to a singular musician. There is no way you can hear a Willie lick and not know where it came from. SRV is an undisputed badass but if Kenny Wayne or Bonamossa played a SRV cover with their own guitar I couldn't tell the difference. Just my 2 pennies

Trigger is unmistakeable. Instantly recognizable. Whether you like the sound or not that guitar is it's own celebrity.

In Midnight Rider what many think is a steel guitar solo is Duane Allman on an electric guitar. I’ve been a fan ever since. He had a way of making a guitar make any sound he was looking for.

I can tell most players by their style. A player has a certain way that they interact with a guitar that gives it a voice of it’s own.

SRV for sure. It's not so much the instrument itself,but what a genius like SRV and few others can make it sound like. Like Arnies golf club,Smokey Yunick's open end wrench, Einstein's chalkboard etc.
