Im starting this thread for people who want to talk about their beautiful old guitars, basses, effects, or amps. Whether it be 40 years old, or a hundred. I have a kingston Viola bass thats either like 50 or 40 years old. Im pretty sure its got all original parts except for a random thumb rest on the wrong side of the bass. Unfortunately the tone pot doenst work, probably cuz i wired it myself, and the neck is rather badly warped. Other than that i love it a lot. Its beautiful and sweet sounding. And you?

Oh dear. The old Shaftsbury bass must date from the late sixties. I still use it for recording. The rest of my old lovelies have passed on to better players than I.

haha don't think I wouldn't get rid of it for a new acoustic, but unfortunately the guitar has a bit of sentimental value. It was more or less a gift from a close friend of mine that used to belong to his father.

Haha and I say "gift" quite loosely, if you consider me borrowing it for an acoustic gig about 7 years ago and keeping it at my house ever since receiving a "gift." Basically I called him up a few days after the show and asked him if when he wanted it back and he goes... "dude, I don't feel like driving up there right now, just keep it." LOL

Not me, but my cousin has a classical guitar from 70s, it belonged to my uncle, who's now dead.

I want that guitar so bad, it has a beautiful sound.

I have no idea, I know it isn't a National though.

EDIT:


I think it's that one.

A headstock pic would help.

I'll ask her to take one later.

FAKEEDIT: Or I could just ask her what the guitar is.

Here's three oldies but goodies from '64 '65 & '67 the single pick up one is exactly like my first electric and is the best for slide of all my guitars-the four pick up is a great surf guitar. Got a '70's Maestro FuzzTone that I've always hung onto-never heard a better one.

it does, but i don't get to hear it's full potential often enough - it's my dads old bass but he doesn't play it anymore so he said i could have it. unfortunately, he sold his amp years ago and i've been too distracted by guitar related GAS to be able to invest any serious money in getting a bass amp.

a bunch of idiots in the bass forum told me to sell it i bet they just wanted to see it on ebay so they could bid.
