Mine is a '52 LP converted many blue moons ago to a '57 with all 50s parts.
I've got a 61 Jazzmaster. It's all packed away so I can't post a pic. She was pretty rough by the time it got to me. Her previous owner had tried to turn it into a Strat with a belt sander back in the early 70's... Early relic attempt hack-job, but it plays pretty well, and aside from the shape of the body and headstock, all the parts are original. The guy with the belt sander was one of my early teachers who had toured as a side man with Chuck Berry and the Isley Brothers. He was a huge Jimi fan, and he taught me how to play Purple Haze using that guitar. How I ended up with it is another story... But when I saw it was available, I grabbed it.

early 70's yamaha ra200..
I'm surprised they go back that far. According to this Django Reinhardt might have used one:
I've got my parlor reso in standard tuning, with nylon strings, for something a bit different. It made me wonder how your banjo would sound with nylon strings - I like the sound of the old gourd banjos.
That is gorgeous! I love the converted Goldtops with the glitch in the top. I have never been a fan of the perfect flamers. Ignore me if it is rude but what would one of those run these days?
1910 Gibson L1 Ltd
Thanks, I really don't know what it's worth. You have to figure that it's a modded '52 old wood goldtop but it has real PAFs, 50's hardware, electronics and a brazilian board. Just throwing out a wild guess maybe 10k to 15k? I could be way off low or high as in the end it's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. But damn it sounds good. Puts a s@*t eatin' grin on my face everytime. This baby has been played. Here's a pix of the back.

I'm thinking my ole Dobro's from the early '30's are my oldest gear.
i think i met you before.
not too many speed demons up this way.
I figured I wouldn't be able to afford one! I can dream though and look at photos online, that thing is just dripping with mojo IMHO.
1916 Gibson A mandolin - looks like this, but with a pickguard:
Harmony Stratotone Jupiter - it's a '60 or a '61, under the guardianship of my brother and I...
This was my first electric when I was at college. It was sold, but eventually made its way back to the family over 40 years later
106 years old?! Unbelievable!
What I believe is a 89 strat:
1956 Gibson GA-55V amplifier.
