A few I keep around the office to help keep the JCM 800 tubes warm.
Yeah, it sure got some stage time. Lol. Dad just told me it was already worn when he got it in the mid 1980’s. A band member installed the EMG pick ups in mid/late 1990’s. I can’t play any guitar worth a damn, but I love music, the instruments, and the backstories.That bass looks battle worn - bitchen!
I love Rics, mainly due to Cliff Burton playing one. Not to mention the look of them and the sound. Dad still has his.I had a 4001 I traded for a Guild D50 which I sold. Wish I had never sold or traded any of my guitars. The Ricky was perfect.
Since the Martin is getting a lot of love... here’s how it sounds...So many awesome posts. I Liked the SG and the gramps 1949 Martin. The Martin has had some work done to it which it should.
I see a few have their gear hooked up, Lets hear a few licks. Be proud...
That's really cool, my first electric, was a 64 airline which was Wards, it's the same guitar with a little different body and it was black. I lost track of it.L to R: 2017 Fender T-Bucket, 1981 Hamer Special, and 1964 Silvertone 1413L.
Also below is the original Sears catalog ad for the Silvertone. It was my first guitar and I bought that in 1980-ish for about $10 and considered smashing for kicks a couple of times early on. Fortunately I never got around to smashing it and just stuck it in my parent basement and forgot about it for about 35 years until I re-discovered it last year (remember all those toys you destroyed when you were a kid and wish you still had now...?). Definitely not the awesome 1949 Martin above, but still a pretty cool slice of Americana!

You might be surprised.I'm afraid I devalued it. In my younger years I contoured the body and put on a Strat bridge with the strings coming in from behind. I still have the original parts but I think it's too late.
