    My '36 Rickenbacher lap steel (I have three - one is a Ricky silver Hawaiian) are the oldest guitars I own.

    I have an Aria es335 copy from the late 60's. I think it was from 68 or 67, the particular model was only made for two years.

    I play both of these all the time.

    Oldest guitar I use: late 80's MIM Strat...the only new guitar i ever bought.
    Oldest guitar I own: ???? Univox, looks like a Les Paul Jr...neck joint is so weak that it won't stay in tune. Sorry, no pics of them here at work...not that they are that interesting anyway.

    1940-42 Epiphone Century; sort of a early ES150 knockoff with a similar tone.

    My oldest one is a 1999 Aria acoustic.
    My oldest electric is a godin SdXt, which I will always keep since it is my first electric.

    You guys really have some nice vintage guitars! One day, when some time has passed, I will be as cool with my main guitar that will have reached a nice age. I have to say I was quite impressed by a few of your guitars that I hadn't noticed you had before, like Luke D's gibson semi hollow with the chrome soaps.

    My first electric, a '79 Anniversary Strat. When I think of "vintage" I think 50's and 60's so I don't exactly consider this one vintage.

    Bought new when I was a sophomore in hs, in '79. It's in real good shape. I've gotten a lot of other guitars over the years and haven't played this one much since high school.

    I also have that Renaisance guitar (can't post a pic now cuz I can't access photobucket here) that I put up a thread here about in January. I got that used in 1980. I have no idea if it predates the Strat or not.

    Oh dude! You became 33% more Tele since we last spoke!! Well, I'll just have to buy a Strat to compensate hehe. Haven't seen you online in a while bro.

    I got my info from a website that doesn't seem to exist anymore. I'll let you know if I find it, but you might have more look playing around with google.

    The oldest guitar I own Now is my 73' Strat

    I don't technically own this one (it's my Bro-in-Laws) But have it on loan from him. 1966 Gibson SG special .

    This is the oldest guitar I've owned, And stupidly sold! 67' Gibson Melodymaker.

    Would have been my 1966 Tele I used to have...traded it for some Brit amp some 20 years ago....
    Today it is a strange 1985 contemporay Squier strat with one humbucker.
