looks like there are enough guitar pickers on this forum for this thread!
so wax nostalgic over your first guitar...
the 1st i had was a plywood no-name acoustic with four strings and a missing tuning peg. my 1st electric was a really messed-up teisco. i didn't know much of anything about guitars then, but i know now that the tiesco was not a bad guitar at all, if there had been anyone around in those days (early 70's) in my neck of the woods who knew anything about guitar repair. i have wished often i could find that old guitar, buthave no clue where it went.
the first fairly decent axe i had was an Aria copy of a doublecut les paul special. being numb and not too bright between the ears, i traded it off eventually for a hondo bass.
then in the 80's for awhile, i owned a walnut gibson "The Paul". it was pretty good, but i never did love it much, i don't know why. since then, i've owned 3 other les pauls and never could get happy with them - i guess i'm just not a 'paul guy.
i bought my 1st sure-nuff fender stratocaster in '96. i don't still have it, tho. these days i have a 2008 american standard strat and it's the best strat i've owned, i think.
