    I only started playing three and a half years ago. I actually sold the guitar I bought to start playing, a Martin HD28. So the longest I have had a guitar is three years. I like the guitars I currently own.

    I have one guitar that I've owned for over a decade, my 2002 MIM Telecaster, bought in 2003 from a private party in NYC, off of eBay for $300.

    The only things left from the original guitar are the white body and control plate with knobs and selector switch.

    My Blueridge Br160. I'm getting in a band with a friend of mine from my teenage years. I took it to his house last night and he said "dang! I haven't seen that thing in years!" I've owned it since 2002.(I was 12)

    I've had all my guitars for 10+ years, except a Taylor classical that my wife got me for Christmas about 5 years ago, and a Fender P-Bass that I bought new two years ago.

    Decades: Yamaha FG410 A/E Cutaway....new in 1994...played the heck out of it and only recently upgraded to a Martin. 1993 MIA Strat in Blue. 1988 (or 83) FG400, first guitar, don't play it much, but it's nice. Yamaha Bass. Ibanez 12 string that hasn't been out of the case in a long time. Bridge is pulling up the body.

    Ones I play the most: 2013? BSB FSR MIM Tele, 2017(?) Martin DCPA4 A/E cutaway Both bought new.

    I have a bunch of others too. :)

    My acoustic was purchased in 91.
    My wife gave me my Strat for Christmas in 92.

    Quarter century club for those two.

    My Tele has only been with me since January, 2015.

    The pickups in the 12 string have been changed to Memphis voiced Retrotrons and those in the Strat to Fender American standards since the pictures were taken.

    I think only two or three aren't in the decade club. Too many to list.
