I don't have the firepower of some of you guys, so I'm pacing myself.
Early '54 Goldtop...
OK to bring a '68 SG to the party??

What i love most about that first one,the 59, in EE's pics...is that the wood looks like an old maple picnic table.Weathered, rugged, coloured by wind and weather. Since i'll never be in a position to own one(had one shot at it in life,in '81 for 1400$...a 1960 LP,and passed it up,out of ignorance)...i'd settle for a custom made tele. It would have old barn wood for the body...and a roasted maple neck, capped with rosewood or, ebony fretboard.
this picture is one of my favorite Burst shots as well. Fantastic amber, glowing from the inside
Well... not a Les Paul, but it is a Gibson, er... The Gibson. 1918 L-1. She’s got some pretty bad scars, but the old gal still sings and plays. Neck is a like V shaped tree with frets.
1960 ES 355TD, 1 11/16 nut & a comfortable D shape neck.
1966 SG Polaris White
Wow!! I am loving all the variety everyone is posting! Gorgeous guitars!
69 LP Custom
If I were going to buys a Gibson from that era....that's exactly what I would want...
It doesn't look like that in person, nothing weathered about it.
Damn. This is what my Historic wants to be when it grows up
Here's my '60 Junior.
Left to right, my now departed '55 (Dave Johnson refin), my '61 SG/LP restoration, and my '53/'57 conversion:
Love all the gold... Now the bursts?
I'll get to that eventually.
So what's the definition of "vintage"?
Can I bring in my '88 & have it keep company with all of these beautiful guitars?
The name and subtitle of this subforum might answer your question.
Go right ahead though.
