What did you do with your first Guitar?

Did you keep it all stock? Upgrade it? Sell it?

It's in a case in several pieces. It pretty much did it all by itself it was so bad.

My Alvarez acoustic? Played it to destruction.

My first electrics? Both stock & still owned by me.

Tuned it up as a learning experience and gave it to my little brother for his birthday.

I donated my early 90s Epiphone Strat copy away to Goodwill. Good riddance! My only regret is that some poor bastard probably got it as his first guitar, and like I, learned the hard way that Korean guitars sucked ass back then.

Sold my Peavey Nitro at a pawn shop when I was 17 in 1994 so I could buy Candlebox tickets.

Well, Here is a summary of my first guitar

show

TLDR: I've beaten and modded my guitar to hell and back and still play it.

My first guitar was a Harmony copy-strat, I loaned it to a friend who never gave it back. I don't miss it

I don't remember what happened to it but it was such a piece of shit that I certainly don't miss it. no name 60 Japanese guitar with baseball bat neck and action so high that slide players cringed.

I do wish I had my first "real" guitar it was a mid 70s Ibanez strat copy.

It was a 3/4 size acoustic. I borrowed it to a friend who never gave it back, which was fine with me.

Was in the midst of refinishing it when I dropped it and cracked the neck. Would have been an uneconomical repair even if it wasn't a set neck.

My first was a plywood cowboy guitar on which the previous owner had painted the top with puke green stripes. I stripped and refinished the top and put on a pickguard made from walnut veneer acquired by my mother from the Rolls Royce factory where she worked.

I sold it not long after, and bought another slightly better acoustic. I was reunited with it a couple of years ago, after 50 years. It sounded a lot better than I remembered it, buy someone had enlarged the soundhole to 4"from classical size. I don't now whether it was the age or the bigger soundhole that had caused the improvement.

My first guitar was a cheap 3/4 size acoustic I got when I was 8 or 9, I am now 24, still have it! I only have one electric guitar, so that is my only other guitar, I still actually use it, although it is quite awful .

My first guitar was a brand new USA made Kapa Continental solid body electric that my parents bought me in 1966 when I was 15 years old. I gigged with it all through high school and for several years after. It has one of the most amazingly smooth and fast necks of any guitar you will ever play. I still have it to this day, play it often and it is a cherished possession.
