Eric Clapton 'Blackie' Strat. Best Les Paul I've ever played
1968 metallic blue, four pickup, striped acid etched pickguard Teisco Del-Rey I bought from JC Penny for $65.99 of saved birthday money. It set the love of music and guitars for the next 5 decades.
Did it play the Super Bowl?
'76 Les Paul Deluxe half green Goldtop,looked like hell but played great.It looked like this but with a tailpiece off a Jr with the string compensations ground off and P 90s
'66 Fender Mustang in Dakota Red. Sniff...
Well, it WAS bad because CBS only now it's old enough that it's "vintage" and in enough minds something becomes good the moment it's declared "vintage."
Just look at the prices for original San Dimas Charvel guitars. Basement levels in the 90's, but buying you the whole house if you sold it in the past few years.
I'll see your Teisco Sharkfin and raise you a burst Silvertone Sharkfin...
Oh wait... it's not a poker game???
With those guitars it's a game of GO FISH.
Don't know, never saw the kid again even tough we both lived in Yuma...I believe his family owned a music store in Yuma, but I wasn't there at that time.
I have three, roughly in this order:
1: '75 Gibson Les Paul
2: '74 Fender Strat (immaculate)
3: '96 PRS Cu-24
All were sold at a terrible loss to cover various emergencies.
Steinberger bass WITH the Transtrem tremolo/transposing bridge.
I could've had it for like $500 because I worked at a shop where we'd taken it in used. The guy that bought it ended up being a friend years later when we reconnected, and he used it better than I could have.
But... damn it was cool. And less than 300 were made.
Geez, this is a sad thread!
‘74 Custom telecaster in black w/the WRH in the neck and the black case with the red fuzzy lining.
...thread title could've been, "The One(s) That Got Away."
My '96 Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion III. I saw it for sale again a couple of years ago but the guy was asking almost double what I sold it for. It wasn't the guy I sold it to but rather the 3rd owner.
It's funny, but the answer is none. I've had so many guitars over the years that I can't recall many of them. What I have now I like, then I get others that I like. A few that I love and will never get rid of, but for the most part they're like hammers to me. They do the job. But I enjoy the rotating and don't ever feel regret for selling. It's an adventure!
Letting this one go was not my finest moment. Custom Shop '56 NOS Strat Birdseye maple neck and I bought it real well.
I miss my first guitar, a Montoya Stratocaster with a natural finish and maple fretboard. I bought it for $100 from a catalog around 1979 and sold it a couple years later for $100.
A Les Paul 55/75. It was basically a "player" version of a single cut Les Paul Special. Not a reissue, as it had a modern neck joint and a vintage black/yellow sunburst that was never available on Specials. Light, resonant, and awesome (a word I use very sparingly).
It went down the road during a personal economic downturn in the mid-90s.
Oh wow that would make you almost continually search for it.
