1985
Peavey Milestone, in my signature block
17 yr old son plays it now

I had a Peavey Milestone purchased @ '85-86... a lefty. Don't even remember what I traded it for, but I did have it for at least 5-8 years. The lefties came in any color you wanted, as long as it was black (Thank you Hartley and Mr. Ford!).

1971.  Miller High School, Regina Saskatchewan.  My axe was a Silvertone "deluxe model" (model 26952) acoustic that my mum had bought for my 13th bday.  It was more or less like an OM style guitar MIJ.

It was a decent guitar and the one I basically learned to play on.  I played it in church and "coffee houses" all through high school.  I had it until 1972 when I accidentally knocked it over and broke the headstock.  I had no idea back then that it could be repaired so I threw it away.

A few years ago, I saw the exact same guitar on Kijiji.  I instantly recognized it even though I hadn't seen one in over 40 years.  I just had to buy it.  It was in pretty good shape but had terrible action.  I was able to set it up nicely and it sounded and played pretty good.  I have since re-sold it.  I have attached some pics of it here.

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

1985.... well I left school at the end of year 10 to start my Fitting and Turning apprenticeship.
Guitar at the time was a Canora Strat painted up to look like Eddie Van Halens guitar. Didn't own, or want an acoustic at that stage.

Cheers, Scott.

It's just too dang quiet around here these days!!!  angry

Isn't anyone buying any gear? I'm surprised we haven't heard from anyone else about buying the 50th Annie / 50th option package (I think we've heard from 3 buyers/potential buyers of the 50th guitar).

I'm waiting on an older, '79 Larrivee L-19 - the guy who was going to convert it for me has been too sick to get to it, so it's going from MN to FL this week to see Barefoot Rob/unclrob!

Thanks, Rob!

Did you sell your LS-10?

I have way too many guitars myself. Plus I'm not into bling that much. The LSV-11 model and the OM-10E were the the highest bling level I got into.
    Though the OO-05 SH/MH was a fine looker, being a Custom model.

    The four Larrivee models I have left are simple, but special in thier own way.
     Forum III # 1
    99  O-01 parlor, repaired and refinished, ie. "The O progect"
    2000 D-02. A fine dreadnaught, my favorite dred (of the ones I have)
    OO-40R    Got to be one of the best Larrivee has put out in its price range.  I still want to put a gloss finish on it some day.  Not a buff out, a real gloss finish.

My #1 Larrivee is also an OM - my OM-05 built in 1992 (during Larrivee's 25th anniversary year); it will turn 25 in October during this 50th anniversary year for Larrivee.

We'll see if that L-19 can give it some competition for the #1 spot (it will also have to edge out a 2012 Martin D-18 that's currently #2).

Those Pete Andersons models were all 12 fretters, right?

Danny sold the LS10 last year,its was agreat guitar but I wasn't playing it because of the Pete


Mike yes it is a 12 fret guitar.Really is a great rythem guitar and playing solo but it sometime's lacks{maybe because the player lacks} what I need for lead work in the duo,hence the OM03Blackwood.

Good morning folks.  June 5th.

Nice morning here in southern MN. 69F, light breeze keeping the bugs down. 

It's my day off after a crazy week. We may go exploring at a lake later today, definitely going to check out a little coffee shop in the next town. 

Have a good one. Go play one of your Larrivee's (I'll do that later, too).

It was a crazy week:

A suicide attempt.
Motorcycle death of a 17 year old boy whose grandparents and uncle/aunt are members of my church (grandparents gave him the cycle - feel terrible).
Young couple who have been part of our small group had a nephew shoot both of his parents and then himself (in the Twin Cities - that's also where the motorcycle accident happened).

All in all, a long week. (Need an emoticon for exhaustion!)

Oh, that is the tragedy of life that really puts me in awe of people who trudge on, through it all.  Sounds very emotionally draining.  My best to you.
