    I am 42. I was in my mid 30s when I bought my first Epi and have owned 8-10 since then. Most were great guitars, 4 Elitists, with the only " dog " being a Chinese L.P. Standard.

    Actually 2 of my my Epi's are over 18.
    Bought the acoustic in '72 & I was over 18 at the time.
    It still plays great.
    Me, maybe not so great.

    We have the same birthday :cool:.

    I'm 19 and have an Epi 57'LE Goldtop. Apparently you don't have to put your age down when you buy an Epi.:thumb:

    I have my first Epi LP at 46.

    I have owned many guitars over the years.. Mostly Kramer, Fender, Ibanez and Gibson. I started looking for a nice new Gibson LP for under $1000 and was having a hard time finding one that did not feel cheap and also played well. I just play for myself and was having a hard time justifing to myself as well as my wife to spend $2000-$3000 on a new guitar. So... I started looking at the Epiphones and found a lot of nice ones for $500-$700. I just gave up on the Gibson LP and got a nice Epiphone LP and I love playing it a lot. I play it so much, that I started looking for a Fender Strat under $1000, so I could play some Stevie Ray Vaughn and some other country stuff. I was having a hard time at that as well and ended up getting a nice Squire Fat Strat that plays just as good as my Epiphone LP. It just goes to show you that you can find some sweet guitars for under $500, especially with a 15% or $100 off coupon at GC.

    I can always change out the electronics to get a better sound if I start doing more or maybe get in a band. But... You can't always make a guitar play great and feel good in your hands if it never felt good or played great for you to start off with.

    :applause: Too many people forget this. They get what looks good and think upgrades will make it play well. You're absolutely right. It has to feel good before you can make it sound good.

    You are a spoiled man. I see all those Goldtops/Les Pauls you have there.

    My GT with P90's doesn't sound that bad though. I will probably swap out electronics on the Squire Fat Strat, but probably only pots and caps on the GT.

    The Ghoul over day!

    Uh I had a Sheraton II when I was 30. It got me back into guitars after I sold my '68 Custom.
