Most Iconic - the 1964 Fender Stratocaster

If being played by Jimi Hendrix is not enough, then Wayne from Wayne's World forever made this guitar iconic.
It will be mine.
Oh, yes... It will be mine.

"It" is the 1964 Fender Stratocaster.

And to make it yours, be ready to make a five-figure check.

Unless... you go for a Custom Shop Reissue like this beautiful .

To sum up the listing:

Built for NAMM 2009 to honor the legend of the 1964 Stratocaster, this Chocolate Three Color Sunburst is a limited edition (50 available worlwide). It comes in a Thin Nitro Lacquer Finish, Relic-d to show years of natural wear and tear, nicks, scratches and intricate weather checking. Comes in a Limited Edition Case with a Limited Edition Certificate.

Features include a premium Ash body, 1965 C-shaped maple neck with 9.5”-radius dark Indian rosewood fingerboard, clay dot inlays and jumbo 6105 frets, three Master-Built “overwound” Fat ’50s single-coil pickups, five-way switching, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners, bone nut and a three-ply mint green pickguard.

Unfortunately, the auction is closed on this one but I'll let you know if I see one surface.

And anyway, remember: NO STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN!
