    Howdy y'all!

    I've been playing guitar since my teens (back in the early '70's) but haven't really played much for the last few decades.
    After some health issues, I decided to get pack into music and picked up my beloved
    '72 Gibson SG Deluxe again (yep, that one with the skinny neck and all) I'm the 2nd owner, purchased in 1974 with gig money playing in a high school garage band.

    I'm glad I kept this beautiful Gibson through all this years, it sounds so sweet again when I play.

    and here's the rest of my collection (acoustic Washburn is in reflection of computer)

    A very nice SG, photos of the collection and some background story...perfect introduction. Welcome the forum! :)
    Great that you didn't let go of this beauty and picked it up again!

    Welcome. Sounds like you and I have similar backgrounds. Teens in the 70s. You still have your first guitar with the SG. I still have mine. Ovation acoustic bought in 1974. Long period of not playing much. About 10 years or so ago I got back into playing when I joined the worship team at church. Kinda forced me to play and practice more.

    Hi, welcome. Your guitars are stunning, congratulations. What kind of music do you usually play with them?
    Best thing.
    Welcome again!

    Aloha, similar background as well, though I don't have my first guitar (wish I did!) Though I'm new as well, welcome!

    Thank You! I now mostly play the blues, but with a jazz/rock infusion of sorts.
