A Teenage Rivers Cuomo strumming his guitar in his bedroom with Kiss posters in the background

Any true-blue Weezer fan would love to see this old photograph of young Rivers, even for the nth time.

Since we’ve featured the retro music video of Weezer’s Buddy Holly for our Midweek Music Video series, we’ve decided to take “old school” and “Weezer” a notch further with this very old photo of Weezer frontman, songwriter and guitarist, Rivers Cuomo.

This photo was supposedly taken in 1984, and that white star-shaped wonder in Rivers’s hands is probably one of, if not the very first guitar he had. And yes, those are Kiss posters behind him, in the comfort of his own bedroom. Kiss was actually Rivers’ first musical love.

Do you know what guitar model that is? Is that a pointed Voyager, or a Jackson guitar perhaps? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
