Fender Deluxe Players Strat. Still got it, of course, cuz I just started doing electric about a year ago. Done acoustic for a while before that- that's a 1972-73 Yamaha FG-580. Still got it, not getting rid of it cuz i got it from my late granddad
The world doesn't revolve around you. If it does, beware. You're probably about to pass out drunk.

mine was like this but wine red, Honestly i think its better than people here give it credit for, tone-wise its meh, but when it comes to playability mine feels just as good as some higher end ESP and Epi LPs.

Not my first one, but the first lefty I owned. I had a few right-handed pass me downs, but I never got really into playing until now.

It's a 'Denstone' ebay strat copy, upgraded with GFS-lil killer rails. I've added 3 DPDT switches for parallel/series/coil split as well to it. Painted the headstock, shimmed the neck, shield the inside and it plays pretty good.

And to answer the other thread, no I'll probably never get rid of it. It won't be worth anything money wise, but it will hold that value to me. Plus all my roommates and friends are right handed. lol.

Squier Affinity Stratocaster. It originally had White knobs and pickup covers, but I swapped the knobs and took off the covers. I still have, and I'm thinking about modding some better pickups into it, but IDK I might sell it.

The first guitar was a Valencia acoustic, and then I borrowed a red strat copy from my boyfriend. However, I got my true first electric today, an ESP LTD EX-351.

Gear:
ESP LTD EX-351 in gunmetal blue.
Valencia acoustic.

I wish I still had my first guitar.. Some strat copy from JC Penny's catalog. But that was 17 years ago. So
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

The Squier Acoustic was my first - Birthday gift from my wife in March 02

I was hooked, and bought the MIM Strat in May

went through various amps..
Started with cheapo Crate GX15 or something like that..
Went to a Line6 Spider II 75W about 3 years ago..
After jamming with my friend who had a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.....
Well needless to say it didn't take long to figure out how bad the Spider sucked...
But it took about a year to convince the wife I needed a different amp..
Got an Epiphone Valve Jr about a year later.
Then in August last year I got the Peavey Classic 30.
And finally about 2 months ago I got the MusicMan Axis SuperSport

Could not be happier...

This vintage Conrad 10080 was my first project guitar. I found the body and neck on eBay, and got the rest of the parts for it, and put it together.
It now has a Bigsby on it, flatwound strings, and a custom wood veneer pickguard with binding I made for it. She plays like a dream.
I've restored a few old archtops since I brought this one back to life, but this one's special.

This is the best picture I could at the moment. Taken back in June before I sold her. She didn't play so bad after a couple of adjustments there and here.

Washburn WR150, the model year is around 2000. Puts my first bass (and other guitar, for that matter) to shame.

it's a pretty solid beginner's kit guitar.

but still saving for a good guitar

That's me playing it at a gig. I think it was my first ever gig actually.

IT's an Ibanez GRG170DX with custom pups. Sounds good.

I know a guy who's first guitar was a Steve Vai Signature. They must be filthy rich and he never plays it. It brings tears to my eyes.
