    I believe this was my first paying gig sometime in the mid/late 70s. I was around 13/14. Yes, we were playing to an audience of Cub Scouts and their parents. It was a captive audience. That's my '69 SG and a shiny disco shirt.

    Forgot I had this one. Mostly junk, but there's a pre-CBS Super Reverb back there, and a Les Paul Deluxe I really dug.

    Why my neighbors hated me, 1973. I needed a 105 watt tube amp with eight ten inch speakers like I needed another a$$_ _ _ _, but it was on sale at Schmidt Music in Minneapolis, so it was irresistible at the time. Wish I still had that Univox, it was a monster. Too bad I couldn't play worth a crap, but it sure looked impressive.

    Let's just say I almost always wear a baseball cap, and leave it go at that.

    I had a bunch of pics on unreadable floppy discs from the era of digital cameras before SD cards.

    1963 Lindel. Four pickups, rocker switches, roller pot controls, lots of chrome and mile high action. Very awful guitar.
