    Understatement! I married the love of my life that year, and she's the best person I've ever known. I overachieved in 1976!

    I actually sent this pic to one of my youngest daughter's former boyfriends. It was done as a joke, but I noticed he didn't seem to come around much after that... Go figure...

    Oh, and I had shown him one of my Garands, as well. Think that might have had anything to do with it?

    Longest.......45 years and counting:
    1967 Gibson ES 335 TD (with Factory Bigsby). Bought this one brand new at Chuck' s in 1967, when Chuck Levin had his shop on "H" Street in Washington, D.C. (just a few months before his store was torched during the race riots in 1968!)

    Shortest.....7 days (and counting):
    2012 Gibson SG Special 70's Tribute. Got this one exactly 1 week ago today!

    Longest: Ibanez Roadster II at 27yrs old. Played the thing to death. First real guitar for me. Suprisingly the frets are still fine, works like a charm. Heck I've got a two year old Ovation who's frets are worse off then that Ibanez.
    Shortest. WelI have never sold anything. I keep them all. They all got a story, but I do have another Ibanez from 1990, EX Series, that I just can't stand and knew it within weeks. It has sat unplayed for 22 years. Not sure why I never bonded with it.

    I agree that it takes time to know a guitar. Some you know right away, some you don't. Believe it or not my first PRS and only PRS it actually took a few weeks before I was %100 in love with it. It was like it had to break in a bit.

    2012 PRS Tremonti - 1 week
    1983 American Std Strat - 26 years

    I thought each of them would be the last guitar I ever wanted. At least now I can admit the GAS never stops.

    I literally owned a guitar for a day. It was a SX strat. Bought it, got it home, hated it, listed it and sold it. Longest would have to be my PRS SCT sitting somewhere around the four year mark. Let's just say she's a keeper.

    I've never parted with one short of six months. If we don't bond by that point, it ain't gonna happen...

    Back when Mars Music was still open I bought a Godin guitar. I've always played with low tunings, and back then I used to tune to Standard A in the band I was in. The guitar sounded great in standard E clean and distorted, but they would not let me tune the guitar down to see how it sounded, so I had to buy the stupid thing. It lasted two days. I wouldn't have brought it back sooner but I hadn't been driving long and didn't know how to get there on my own
    The longest I've owned a guitar was probably my old Gibson Flying V Hendrix Edition that I sold last year. I bought it in late '97 from Sam Ash. They accidentally mismarked it so I got it at a real steal and an employee got into a ton of trouble.
