14. I bought a '78 Deluxe, black and creme, for $450 from a guy that I played in a band with starting at 12. He switched to a Strat. I saved the money from cutting grass and had one of those old Crate amps that looked like, well, a crate. Mom and Dad bought me a combined Xmas, birthday gift the following year, a 1974 100 watt Marshall with a 2 x 12 Marshall cab.

I ended up selling the LP to a guy that was in a band with me when I was 19 for $500. He joined the Army and is now a Lt. Colonel. Sold it to one of his guys when he was moving from Germany to Hawaii two years ago. No idea where it is now, but it's probably one of the few out there with a Bartolini bridge pickup and a Kahler.

1976 LP standard, I was 15, worked all summer at a movie theater to get the money. We used to resell the tickets and keep the cash, the movies were Jaws 2 and Animal House. I would work 40 hours and take home $94.00, one good nite of ticket sales and we would pocket $150.00 each.
