Hey guys, I would like to know what your first guitars were... Mine was a cheap Strat copy.
#2
Squire Strat. Served me well.. sort of, I threw it in the bin eventually.

Ibanez GSA60, great guitar although I don't use it much, I'll be giving it to my sister when she's old enough to learn...
#4
an ibanez GRG 170DX....so good it would stay in tune 5 or 6 seconds....awsome!
This is my sig....i'm not a funny man

Cort Strat copy

>_>

It sounds decent, however the tremolo bridge causes the guitar to go slightly out of tune (especially the 6th string) and the intonation is not particularly desirable either.
I'll give it the bin eventually.

I sort of had three first guitars. My very first was in a Peavey starter kit (obviously frigging horrible), the first ever guitar I purchased for myself was an LTD EC-50, but what I consider my first guitar and have that soft spot for is my LTD EX-400, as I have done nearly all of my learning on that bad boy.
#7
I had a cheap strat copy from a brand which escapes me, but I painted it and threw it away a few years back. The guitar I consider my first is my Vintage acoustic (which is a tank: nothing can damage that thing), and I lurve it. It's gone all the way down to drop G, and it's still set up well, stays in tune despite my fairly aggressive picking, and is generally awesome!

Yamaha RGX 310. it had a floating tremolo bar, and it didn't stay in tune for long...and allmost every part of the guitar sucked. maybe because it was so old when i had it.

That would be a 1967 Kay semi-hollow body with a Bigsby-esque tremolo bridge. Of course, the pic is not of my actual guitar. This was over 40 years ago and no pics of it exist. Sadly, neither does the guitar. First it was spray-bombed a crappy royal blue, then set alight ala' Hendrix. Oh, the stupidity of youth!

I had the same guitar, but I can't remember if I got that or my Kawai acoustic first. The Ibanez was fine for what it was through a DS-1 and old MG. Hooray for Dumpster quality.

I had a B.C. Rich, the cheap version of a gunslinger. Still have the body, but the neck gave out years ago......
I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

A strat copy by the company Rok Axe. Save the last "c" for crap.

Fond memories of that guitar, though. Roked the shit out of it.

A black Westone Spectrum II

I worked in a music store and this one wasn't getting lovin' from customers but I had my eye on it and worked an amazing deal. Eventually sold it to cover living expenses -- wish I never had.

Man, I want one of those again. I mean the trem was crap, but otherwise it was awesome -- for what it was. If anyone happens to have one and would like to get rid of it, please PM me!

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

Mine was an Epiphone T310, a tele copy. Didn't sound very well til I glued the neck on. That was in 97 after I quit playing the guitar 20+ years ago. My very first guitar was an Airline 335 copy in red. That was in the mid 60s.

It was neck heavy and not very comfortable to play. I bought it on special because it was being discontinued...strangely enough that allowed me to sell it to a music store for more then I bought it for.

My cheap LP copy (no idea the brand, google tells me nothing xD)
Actually not too bad. I swapped out the crappy P90s for some Seymour duncans (Dist/Jazz combo), changed the knobs and stuck a picture of Gastly on it. The guitar is now known as Gastly.



I also now string it with the strings going the other way through the stop bar, and then wrapping around. I don't really notice any difference, but it looks kind of cool. xD
