hmmm, my 1994 Washburn MG-122.
Not very old really but in mint condition.
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.
Oldest is a 1938 National Lap Steel followed by a 61 Epiphone (The one all the way to the right in the pic)
I play both of these all the time.

Guitars, amps, recording gear
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.
i have a '59 guild ce100
a '62 hofner 491 acoustic
'65 or '66 guild f212
everything else is 1990's and newer
I've got a Kramer bass from 1986.
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.
- Gibson CS ES339 - Gibson J-45 - Gibson Les Paul Trad - Gibson J-200 Standard - Fender Hwy1 Strat - PRS Custom22 Soapbar - Takamine E-series Acoustic - Fender Blues Deluxe - Fender Excelsior
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.
A 1992 Fenandez Valencia
Warmoth Split Jazzmaster (Zhangbucker Crushbucker UOA5 splat, Cherrick tapped)
MXR Custom Comp
GFS Twin Overdrive
Boss BD-2 Bluesdriver

'03 gibson LP classic

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.
86,87and 88 Kramers:
87 and 88 charvels:
1980s Burny: (exact year unknown)
88 Japanese Squier strat: (black one)
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.
Not gonna miss you know!
