I miss that one!! Glad you're enjoying it. Sustain and tone for days.
Indeed. The humbucker is so perfectly balanced with the P-90.
1962 Guild X-50. The single Franz p/u was totally worth the wait:

65 es 120T
Plays and sounds great!
1961 Gibson L-7C.
50's Dearmond Rhythm Chief 1000 pick up.
My only vintage purchase in 2017 was this Harmony Super Tone, I think from the '30s. I was in Seattle visiting my daughter and convinced her to take a little trip to Dusty Strings. Nothing really moved me, including some really, really nice Martins and Collings, but I saw this little guy in the corner. It had a cool rustic tone to it, perfect intonation, a fat neck like an R8, and a very modest price. As I was ringing it up, the salesman told me that it was Bill Frisell's; he had it there on consignment. Cool guitar owned by one of my favorite guitarists and some quality time with my little girl -- what a great day!
Gorgeous, and I love those DeArmonds!
Cool guitar and great story. If I remember correctly, Supertone was the Sears store brand before Silvertone.
I had my best gear year full stop -
58 Tweed Deluxe
63 Vox AC30
66 Princeton Reverb
66 Vibrolux Reverb
72 Pro Reverb
65 Fender 2x12
69 Leslie 16
This 1957 Supro Sierra - one of the rarest of Supro guitars, only made for about 2 years, unusual in this nice condition.
1961 Martin 00-18 to replace my old 1979 Martin D-35
Added FWI pins and crafted a WAHI saddle for it
I put this together in 2017 - 1975 neck, 1976 body, all 1974 loaded pickguard
A 30 year old amp qualifies in my mind as vintage... it's the one on the left.
My wife snuck one more in under the Christmas tree. Mostly original(earlier bridge pickup) ‘66, that plays better and stays in tune more than any other old Jag I've owned.

Photos, please, especially of the guitars!
My prize for 2017 was a tenor ukulele from Pohaku.
Here is my only vintage purchase last year. 1965 Silverstone 1485 amp. May Have been a special order. They usually come with Jensens, but this one has Fisher speakers with the correct date code stamped on the speaker magnets and the Baffle.

1963 Supro Bermuda. It's A fiberglass body. It is of course A hollowbody, but the fiberglass Is quite thick and very rigid so sounds pretty much like a solidbody guitar.
1965 Olympic White Jazzmaster (Pictured next to my '66):
1970 Fender Stratocaster - refinished (will head to Danocaster for a LPB or Sonic Blue refin)
I also got some vintage delays:
Early 1980's Boss DM-2
Late 1970's Pearl Delay... This thing is the coolest delay I've ever owned. Here's mine and my friend's together...
oh man...I HATE YOU!!! lol.......that 345.......heavenly, enjoy them in good health.
I only bought one vintage guitar last year: my ‘63 Strat with a tortoiseshell pick guard and factory refinish.
I made an NGD post when I bought it, but I’ll post a picture when I get the chance.
Bought this 1956 Gretsch Duo Jet. Came with a beat up, but cool case.
