  1. My favorite is my 1973 Cherry Sunburst Gibson Hummingbird, even with the inevitable scars it has from being around that long. It has a depth of tone I was basically looking for all my life. I was 67 years old when I got it, and I will have it until I take my last breath. I had it appraised, and the number they quoted me was way beyond what I paid for it (more than 2X) and I have turned down a couple of offers. I tell them "find your own...this is how I want to sound".
  2. I have had a grand total of 27, all with varying lengths of ownership, and quality. Some I bought because of the way they looked, a couple because current custodians were broke, but most because I liked the way they sounded. Five of them were/are Acoustic, including the Hummingbird, and the Fender Catalina that I currently own. Down to two acoustic guitars and one PA system. I have had Gibsons, Fenders, Martins, Ovation, Sigma, and brands not worthy of remembrance.
  3. Wow. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones are just old these days. Doesn't exactly do anything to make me feel younger, like guitars do. 🙂
  4. Well, no one is immune. I am 69 and I keep waiting for the shoe to squash me. I had a long first half of my life, and I didn't exactly do myself any medical favors. I will ad Mr. Mustaine to my list of people who have cancer that I am praying for.
