I posted a longer "happy birthday" thread at the Other Place where they are more into photo-erotica, but my main squeeze turned 40 on the weekend. I've had this one since 2009 and nothing has beaten it yet.

I didn't even realise Squier was around 40 years ago.

I’ve owned a Squier Bullet MIJ that dated to 1984 I think. Paid $200 and parted the poor thing….sold the loaded body on eBay for about what I paid and threw the neck on a newer Squier Standard Tele I sold to Dillon. Definitely a 2008 Nick thing to do :|

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Tele custom from that era besides yours

They were domestic only I think - mine came from Japan via eBay.

It's funny that at this point your guitar is just a tad younger than the model it was "an import rip off" of. I mean it's almost as vintage as 70s fenders, and it's probably better made. Nice guitar, strong Keith vibes.

A quick couple of family photos of my current guitars (Martin excepted). Pretty happy with this selection TBH.

I forgot you had that blue SG, it's gorgeous! Makes me regret selling my Epiphone EB-3 in the same colour. It was horrible to play though haha, it just looked great.

That's one sexy SG, NickD. Are those nylon saddles or am I mistaken?

I’d enjoy that.

You’re correct, nylon saddles. Standard spec I think.
