How many have "birth year" guitars????

Recommended Posts

I have one: 1947 Gibson L-7.

 

For the record, I was born in January 1947, and by her serial number, this one is just a few months younger than I am.

I wouldn't want to! LOL I am too young. Who wants a 1979 Gibson? haha. sorry, no real offense intended for anyone who owns one.... Just not MY cup of tea!

 

The best I could hope for would to be finding something cool from the 60s that has my birthday as the serial number. those 6 digit numbers allow for that.

 

I guess some of the earlier 5 digit ones would work too. I was born Nov 3. so, 11379 or 110379 would work for me.

I saw a very nice '62 J50 at GC of all places over the weekend for 3k. Didn't care for the chunky neck. I'm thinking a '62 Bird would be much better.

Favorite is 1966. Just between lost innocence and full blossom psychedelia. Revolver – Blonde on Blonde – Sunshine Superman – Fifth Dimension – the motorbikes op-art – girls with slug eyebrows and mother of pearl lipstick – the hairstyles – the jackets and pants Danvills' boots, , , , just count me in.

 

My C&W (which is now under neck surgery) is from that year.

I'd have to go for a mid seventies Norlin in that case....

 

 

I think you should be able to pick an alternate year in that case!

 

I have a D-28 and a Southern Jumbo from 1950. Both in the shop, getting straightened out.... something I need, too.

Me -- 1943 J-45, 00-17

Child wife -- 1944 D-28

 

She also has dually and a bass boat.

 

Ain't no grass growin' on you two, Tom!

 

Does she let you drive her dually, or does she just use it to tow her bass boat?
