"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.

That's a five course Chitarra with 9 strings, probably tuned ADGBE.

Vintage according to my duo partner is when you turn 45 as he doesn't use the word "old" anymore,he replaced it with "vintage".

Several years ago I told my kids they could call me "old fart" after I turned 50. Maybe I need to change that to "vintage fart"?!?

Taken literally, vintage simply means the year something was created, and originally refers to the year the grapes were harvested for making wine (Vin=wine).  It did not originally imply anything old or valuable.  For example, the wine I drink on a regular basis comes in a box and usually has a vintage of maybe a year ago.  Somehow, that term has become equated with old and valuable.  It has become a great marketing term when it comes to selling guitars, cars, furniture, etc.  The word "antique" has also acquired a similar meaning.  Both terms are subjective.  So there is no real way to answer the question of how old is vintage.  I guess it depends on one's interpretation.  I have advertised and sold several instruments described as vintage.  I don't really know if using that word has piqued any potential buyers' interest enough to tip them towards buying or not.
