Pot The Only "First Guitar" Thread!

What was the very first guitar that you owned and learned to play on???



Mine was one of those Esteban guitars that he sells on the shopping networks and info-mercials...He actually is the one who inspired me to start playing guitar for REAL!!
The guitar is a piecer really!! I now own 3 guitars...Epiphone acoustic/electric, Esteban Special, and a Peavey Raptor Pro!!




Note: If there is already a thread like this started I couldn't find it, by searching, for the life of me!!

^ Haha. I have estabans first guitar with an autograph from him on the headstock. w00t. It was a Estaban acoustic. He didnt inspire me, but it was originally my fathers guitar. I saw it laying around and started practicing on it.

A few months later I had remembered that my grandfathers classical guitar was in my attic. So one of these two guitars could be my first.

Now I have 2 Classical Cordoba guitars, a Epi Les Paul and my Estaban.

Mine was and still is, since I started 2 weeks ago, a Yamaha. It came with a 9 Watts Amp lol. I changed the amp for a Roland Cube-30, but I have to keep the guitar, even if it's not good quality, I'm just starting to learn.

Westfield SG copy - had it since I started playing about 6/7 months ago. Fairly cheap guitar but through a good enough amp has a great tone.

My first guitar was of course the Fender Squire. I got a pretty good deal for it at the local music store. I got a 40$ gig bag with it, a 20$ strap with it, and a Crate GX15 amp. I also had to pay like 50$ extra because I am left handed, lol.

What type of Yamaha?

My first guitar was a Yamaha Pacifica, a very good guitar for the price imo. A beginners guitar obviously but I'd use it as a back up.
