Anyone have a vintage guitar?

I recently found out that my Yamaha FG-75 (that I got from a friend, who got it from a friend, who .. etc) was made in 1974. I know cause I checked Yamaha's cool Guitar serial number checker thing. 34 years isn't exactly vintage, but it's getting up there. I really like vintage stuff, so post about any vintage guitar related stuff you have.

Except for a guitar I don't use, I own entirely vintage gear. Didn't realize it until you started this thread. I have a Gibson 12-string acoustic from the late 60's, a Conn classical from the early 60's, and an ancient Supro amp. I feel as if I were to get robbed, I could very easily recover these from pawn shops.

Because it's something that doesn't exist anymore. It's a relic, an antique. I'm not really interested in playing vintage guitars, more so the collection of them.
