Jimmy Page, his '59 Paul. What could compete? Even if you could afford the price tag on a 59, you'd need Bill Gates to loan ya the $$$ for Page's axe.

It's gotta be Eric Clapton. In his book _Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument_, Allen St. John tells the story of a man who paid $100,000 for a guitar that Clapton didn't even own . . . only played it and said he liked it.

Page's Les Paul or Paul's Hofner bass. One or the other I would think. Paul even mentioned Page's Les Paul in the song "Rock Show"

What's that man moving 'cross the stage?

Paul McCartney...He's a living Beatle, who played/plays quite a bit of guitar... Easily gets my vote for most expensive guitar.

Top 4 valuable guitars in my opinion:

1. Page's Les Paul
2. Hendrix's Strat
3. Clapton's Blackie
4. Billy Gibbons Pearly Gates (Personally I'd rather have this than Clapton's or Hendrix's)

Brian May's homemade Red Special would probably fetch a decent price.

Van Halen's Frankenstein. Probably the most easily identifiable and most famous guitar in Rock and Roll.
