I'm looking for stories about how different guitarist's got their very first guitar, if possible can you give me a link to the actual interview where they talk about it or story that cites it, thanks. Trying to find people like Hendrix,Clapton,Paige, bb king etc.. but less legendary guitarists will also work.

Clapton

Clapton received an acoustic Hoyer guitar, made in Germany, for his 13th birthday, but found learning the steel-stringed instrument very difficult and nearly gave up. Despite his frustrations, he was influenced by the blues from an early age and practiced long hours to learn chords and copy the music of blues artists that he listened to on his Grundig Cub tape recorder.

Hendrix

At age 15, around the time his mother died, he acquired his first acoustic guitar for $5 from an acquaintance of his father. This guitar replaced both the broomstick he had been strumming in imitation, and a ukulele which his father had found while cleaning out a garage

Wikipedia it bro

Jimmy Page's was left in a house his family moved into.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

slash's friends wanted him to play bass for his band so he said he would do it, his grandmother had a old flamenco styled guitar that had one string which after seeing his bass teacher play some blues licks on guitar he immediatly wanted to do the same, and then spent ages learning on his one string acoustic guitar
#13
Yeah you can find it in Wikipedia or Google ,then why you are worrying about this??

If you wanna know about Eric Clapton's guitar history, read his autobiography, makes for some good reading
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass
