    Spector NS gets my vote, too. I had to have been 9 or 10 when I first saw Greg Lake and Sting play theirs and although I didn't know what it was, I though it was the coolest looking thing ever. I still think they are beautiful. What a cool design.

    +1 on the ST.

    I like this one, too:

    His shapes are just so awesome... I couldn't even count how many hours I've spent staring slack-jawed at his website. I should get one before demand skyrockets and build times top two years.
