    Maybe if Sears or Montgomery Wards sold something in 1952.

    1967, so not much in the "affordable" category. If money were no object, though, I'd hunt these down...

    1967 Epi E252 Broadway

    1967 Gretsch Tennessean

    And for the cars- 1967 Camaro. First year for both of us.

    Now that we're veering into cars, I was going to say that there wasn't a whole lot going on in 1975 that would interest me, but I just found that '75 was the last year of the Jaguar E-Type. Alas, not terribly affordable.

    IMG_20200805_193911.jpg I'd been thinking of the birthday guitar for around 5-6 years now. A 1976 and I've tried les Paul's that weighed more than me, strats that just weren't feeling well made and a tele which had been modded way too much. I'm a small guy and the big country gents are just to big for me. One day I found 1976 Japanese epiphone crestwood for £266. Its now my open tuning

    If we're talking cars, I'd choose these:

    Well, being born in '64, there's no affordable guitar for me, except some lost or unknown Italian, Japanese, Russian or Eastern models, maybe... Ah : and they must be Lefty ! :eek:o_O

    Ah. So there's none, period. :(:D

    A+!
