From my “James carves up another guitar” thread.
2005 60s classic tele.
It was Olympic white in its first life.

Had it since... 2004? Bought from a little music shop in Surbiton to replace the one that I bought from the Rockshop in 1994 and sold in... 2002.

I was absolutely astounded to sell a guitar (which I had utterly thrashed) to fund world adventure and find in that adventure a pristine guitar exactly the same.

Same year same model. In my mind, it's the same guitar. The only difference is the one I bought in 1994 now lives at a friends house and the frets are nearly gone.

It’s not a competition :lol:
It a snapshot of what the forumite has lovingly never wanted or can’t get out of their system or collection :)

It has a mint green pickguard and functional electronics :lol:
Oddly enough the pg is original; not much of the guitar is.
I got it as an early present for my 16th birthday in 2007.

Ok here's mine

1991 Gibson Celebrity Classic (only 200 made). I bought it from what was then Musical Sounds in late 1991.

Lost the pick guard forever ago, and changed the pickups to BKP Rebel Yells (original pickups are somewhere in my storage still). I have done many many gigs with this lovely lady.

Anyone here who can beat nearly 27 years?

So, I'm going to lose this...


Edit: Had this on and off for about three years.

That was the second best PRS Conway ever had! I loved that guitar!
