I like the '61 Strat and The DuoSonic but really that
1955 Gibson ES-5 archtop electric guitar with a natural finish, and a maple body and spruce top (estimate: $8,000-$10,000) would be cool to have. :D

Always wondered what happened to Steely Dan. Thanks, for the link Mike.

Looks to be a great auction. Except for what looks to be the proverbial headstock cigarette burn, the ‘57 Duo-Sonic looks like it was seldom played unlike my Steely Dan recordings.

Thanks for the music, WB

It's a 1957 Fender Duo-Sonic electric guitar which can be seen with Becker in a photograph used in the liner notes to the 1977 Steely Dan album Aja.
