2007 was horrible. Cal had a ton of talent that year (at least 7 guys are still in the NFL), beat Tennessee (the Vols won the SEC East that year), beat an excellent Oregon team, then after Kevin Riley failed to throw ...

Of those, SRV.
But if I could acquire any iconic guitar, it would be the Red Special. Awesome story behind it. Maybe not as famous as other guitars, but it's obviously unique compared to any production instrument or even any guitar slapped together from production parts (VH's Frankenstein).

Great subject but casting is a bit disappointing. Not a fan of Reese but I will definitely watch the movie. I'm curious to see what great scenery they captured.
