Well, I was heavily influenced by Tom Paxton, and played a Martin D-28 for a while, then sold it when I got another Martin (0-18), then bought it back unknowingly (with a non-Martin replacement top).

Does that count?

Pete Seeger - banjo (I've had several but only an old Gem now)
Leadbelly - 12 string guitar (which I regret selling)
Mike Seeger - autoharp (an Oscar Schmit - my daughter is trying to learn it now)
Jean Ritchie - dulcimer (made in NZ in 1967/8)
Colin Ross - Northumbrian pipes (made by Ken Fisher but 'fettled' by Colin later)
Packie Byrne - tin whistle
The Tracey brothers (Wait a minim) - kalimba
That's all I can think of at the moment.
Robyn

Telecaster because of Roy Buchanan. I was a Les Paul kind of guy and changed almost overnight. Page, Richards, Gallagher, and Beck may have already started to influence my ears in that direction, but Buchanan sealed the deal.

Peace, Mooh.

Not exactly what you asked, but I bought a semi-hollow body Guild because it looked like Chuck Berry's semi-hollow Gibson.
