    Happy to have found this place of like-minded people.

    Here's me, 47 apart.

    First picture of me taken in 1967, you can barely see the guitar but it is a 1961 Les Paul Custom -- SG shaped with 3 PAFs, gold plated everything with Ebony board, blocks and sideways vibrola.

    Second picture is me with my 2013 SG Standard. Honestly it is a killer guitar, as good as anything I've ever owned.

    I haven't aged well, but the SG lives forever.

    Funny thing, the Les Paul wasn't my first SG.

    OK here I am in January '71 with my recently purchased SG Special. Bought it in Fall 1970.

    Great story and photos! I'd say you've aged just fine, you're still playing! :thumb: I think in years spent on earth I'm pretty close to you, but the only thing that hasn't changed is my playing which probably isn't a whole lot more refined than it was in '70 when I took it up. :hmm: Keep rockin!
