Default Re: My Vintage Guitars - 06-08-2008, 09:05 AM

It just occurred to me that the Duo-Sonic posted first above wasn't really my first guitar, but my first electric guitar. I got my first guitar, a no-name MIJ acoustic while I was in junior high school in the early 70's. My dad bought it in Japan and gave it to me when I taught myself to play it.

Here's a slightly better pic than the "porch" picture above:



As I'm not much of an acoustic player, I do't know much about it's construction or what my dad paid for it. I still own it though.

While I'm on the subject of acoustics, my 12-string is also 70's vintage. It's a Yamaha, that I found in a pawn shop for $150 about 5 years ago. It is all beat up. I think made in Taiwan, can't remember. Iirc the model is FG-120, but I could be wrong about that too. At any rate it has good action for an acoustic and a nice rich tone, unlike my 6-string, which sounds rather thin.
