    My dad plays harmonica, so it was a case of harps through literally every model of '68 drip edge Fender (pure coincidence, really), plus a few blackfaces to boot. Also a few Boogies...

    Then he DID get into guitars.. He started collecting old Silvertones and Danelectros, then got a a Ric 360, a Legend acoustic, a vintage '72 Tele Deluxe, etc...

    Cool thing is, he still has all of it. Me on the other hand... Once I hit TGP and discovered the Emporium/trying and flipping.... Very little of my 90's gear still remains, but my current pile of gear is WAY nicer than it was back then.

    My dad's guitar was a 1953 Goya nylon string. He played that off-and-on until his arthritis got too bad.

    When I gigged during the 1990's, I had a 1977 Fender Telecaster with a Hot Rails in the bridge position through a Boss ME-X into a Peavey Triumph 60. In retrospect, that was a pretty good rig. The Tele was a boat anchor, though ...

    My dad had a red Harmony electric guitar of some sort when I was a kid. He may still be able to bust out a mean rendition of House of the Rising Sun!

    Dads rig back in the 60's/70's was:

    Gretsch Country Gentleman
    Gibson ES-335
    Noyce Telecaster
    Polytone amp

    I've still got his Tele (which is 2 years older than me!) and his amp.

    IIRC this was my mom's main rig. She did have some sort of Yamaha electric piano though too for the jazz gigs.

    My Dad's Dallas 'E' George Formby banjo ukulele. Probably the most collectible banjo-uke around
    His main axe for 60 years, although he also had a Gibson tenor banjo, Morris tenor uke and a Keech banjo-uke as well

    My dad doesn't play guitar but if he did it would be a Squier telecaster.

    Telecaster because he's a colossal fan of old school country and Squier because he's cheap.
