Anybody else have any vintage guitars? I played music (bass player) in my early years, and collected a few from over the years. The first vintage guitar I bought in 1980 (and still have) is an near mint 1967 Hofner Violin Beatle Bass. Made famous by Sir Paul Macartney The next one I got also in 1980 is a 1965 Fender Mustang. Someone had rattle canned it in white it looked really bad. Then a painter friend of mine wanted to practice some air brushing, so I told him to go for it. I'm getting ready to tear it back down and he is going to paint it the original red. The next one is my pride and joy and I bought it new in 1983. MusicMan Cutlass 1 Bass guitar. Leo Fender acquired Music Man for a short period of time, and when he did he hired a company to make graphite necks for a limited production (2oo total). I actually bought a wood neck bass and had some problem and the store sent it back to the factory for repair. It was taking longer than expected so the store owner called and said he had the same guitar but with a graphite neck and would trade, so I did and played it in bars for many years. I'm Glad I did the trade, all these years later the bass is very desirable. Anyone else have anything cool to show?
