Alright...Here's my '78 LP Deluxe which was the first significant purchase I ever made with my own money. I'd had it about 2 years at this point. According to my friend in the pic we were playing Whole Lotta Love.
Here were are sitting in with some friends roughly a quarter century later. In a "the more things change the more they stay the same" moment, I'm playing Immigrant Song.
Here are a few pix of my second guitar. The first only lasted about 3 months and then I saw this brand new custom on the rack at the local guitar store! I had to have it and it's the one I kept for 15 years and really learned to play on. It was a 78 LP wine red Custom that I bought new for $550 out the door! ... came with the bulletproof case too. My brother is flippin you ppl off, did you notice that?
