This might be the shortest list ever....

1981 Hondo Paul Dean II - This is the wacky little-known signature model designed by the guitar player of a certain well known and often flamed (for their name) Canadian band from the 80's. The designer, Paul Dean, had this wonky idea of filling the inner cavities with plastic wood around the pickups, having 2 "tone channels" routed on both sides of the truss rod cavity in the neck, a break & reglue at the 10th fret, and a headstock angled back 10 degrees, powered by a pair of DiMarzio Super II Humbucker pickups and a Leo Quan Badass bridge.

1979 Fender Lead 1/2 "Elliot Easton" - It is rumoured Elliot had a hand in the Fender Lead series, wanting something that was a cross between a Fender Strat and a Fender Tele. He used a Lead 1 on Candy-O and Panorama, and used this white "Lead 1.5" on the Panorama tour in 1980. This and the pinstripe Telecaster below are some of my favorite EE Guitars.

Some live footage of this guitar. There was another one (or maybe the same guitar modified) used on Magic for the guitar solo as well.
