I do. All 2 and a half. I share a Taylor Big Baby with my Son.
I was born in 1963. In 2013, my wife bought me a 1963 Melody Maker D from Dave's Guitar for my 50th birthday. All original (including case), VG condition. I bought a Mojoaxe wrapround and it's ready to rock. I love that woman.
I do. A '63 Gibson B-25 (like pictured, but I swiped the pic). It's my only acoustic.
Pretty much, no chance of getting a birth year guitar, unless I win the lottery. It's OK to dream, though.
I was actually shopping for something produced in my birth year when my brother (born in 1960) passed away. I got this instead - a 1960 Musicmaster (one of the few somewhat affordable options from that era.) I actually like it quite a bit, and recently purchased one of the new MIM Duo-Sonics so that I would have something with a similar vibe I wouldn't be scared to take out of the house.
I've got a 2007 ... I'll have to go with 11
I was born in 56. If I was to go down this rabbit hole I would look for a player quality 00, 000, OM Martin. I think they could be had for $2 - $3k. I don’t look or I would have a GAS attack. The Gibson 225 is interesting..
I haven't got one - My oldest guitar is at least twice as old as I am, and my number one was produced when I was six or so. Shouldn't be hard to find a nice '97 model though.
Nope. Off by a year with my 65. I do have a Gretsch and a Supro that predate me.
Hahahahahaha.... I don't have enough money to buy a guitar from birth year!
Back in the 70's I bought a 53 (my birth year) Goldtop Les Paul with P 90's. But like a stupid 20 something I sold it for something shiner. Sure can't afford it now.
Never thought about it. But my 55ri lp would qualify. Holy poop I’m old.
I never set out to have a birth year guitar, but from my research, MOST of this guitar (at least the wooden parts, anyway) are from 1970. Or maybe ‘69, which is close enough.
I was born in 1959.
I could never afford a birth-year guitar, trust me.
I suppose a '75 Strat wouldn't be *too* expensive - as far a birth years guitars go...
It'd have the big headstock, too - which I prefer on Strats...
I've been keeping an eye on 1953 guitars on Reverb since I started this thread. There are actually a few there that I can afford!
By my birthday in August, I may have one.
Like George Carlin once said - just because you're 2, doesn't mean you stopped being 1!
I wish, but an early 60's Fender or Gibson will be too much for my blood and talent (or lack thereof). A 63 Epi Olympic could be an affordable choice though.
I have an MIM strat from 1993, my brother's birth year. That's about as close as I care to get to my own (I'm older). 1993 was a good year for MIM though I'm told, and the thing is a dream. I've brought it store and compared it to MIA, and I prefer it in every respect (even the ceramic pups). It is due for replacement of pots though, as they're crackling something fierce these days.
Well I have a Partscaster that was reliced to 1960 standards, does that count?
