And why?
Just say the name and the type, whether if it's a strat, les paul, semi-acoustic, or so on.

WHy did you pick it?
A Ken Rose strat copy. Got it when I was 11 years old cause it looked cool. It was from a shop in germany (lived there at the time).

You can't tune a LP copies down. Some kind of lawsuit Gibson won. Sorry.
A silver electric Ibanez (Artist, I believe). I started playing bass, and got bored with it, so I enrolled myself in a guitar class, and wanted something well rounded for all styles.

Squire strat. I was 16 and had just enough money to buy one of the starter kits.
mine was a strat copy by a company called wesley its see through! woop
i bought a squire P - Bass aswell they looked cool
i'd played bass for a while, and i wanted to play guitar, so i got an epiphone les paul special II. i was 14 or 15
Also a squire strat. My dad bought me the starter kit in high school.

Amazingly enough, I still use the damn thing.
1969 les paul gold top. got it when i was 11. christmas present. i had already been playing for about 5 years classical acoustic lol. first one i picked out and payed for myself was an ibanez rg550 when i was 14. i had a full time job so it only took me a couple weeks to save up for it. oh yeah im now almost 32 lol.

Mine was a Taro Black Les Paul Copy. It had white binding, block inlays and chrome hardware with pickguard. The Body was some sort of plywood and I have no idea what the neck was made of. I kept it several years and eventually replaced the tuners with Grover Imperials, the pickups with DiMarzio an SD1 (Bridge) and PAF (neck). When I went to finally trade it in, the guitar was basically worth nothing, only the add-ons had value and they were stripped from the guitar by the music store! That's when I learned not to invest more money upgrading a cheap guitar, it's like putting gold over shit and calling it art!

I'm think I'm the only person who didn't get a Gibson or a Fender (Or Epiphone or Squire, but same companies.) for a first guitar.

I got a black electric Dean Vendetta 1 for my 17th birthday. I'm 18 1/2 now so you can do the math. Although it was a pretty good guitar (For $270 at least), I'm looking to buy a new guitar now.
my first REAL electric guitar was a ibanez AK85 i got it becuase it was one of those moments when you see an play a damn fine guitar and you just fall in love with it in the shop instantly, i now hardly play my other 7 guitars as i have been playing my cherry sunburst epiphone les paul standard for a good solid year lol.
i'm planning to get a Fender Japan strat for my first guitar in about a month.
Do you guys recommend it?
Squier Mini :P It was my 8 year old brothers, so I used that for about 2 months then got my Epiphone Les Paul Custom.

Ibanez SA260FM. It's my only guitar, technically...

Cost me about $400, but has the features of a $600. The only beef I have with it is that it has a humbucker, but it sounds the same in/out. I guess humbucker + semi-cheap pickups = useless humbucker, eh?

It's also tiny (something I never realized until my older brother used it one time).

Just eat the headstock.

That'll make you look mad.
fender squier stratocaster, given to me on my birthday (not sure which one). i wasn't really interested in playing guitar until this year.

my brother got a fender squier telecaster for one of his birthdays. i play this one a lot more than the strat. i like the feel better.

i got a fender squier p-bass last christmas. i love it.
My first guitar was a pearl white Charvel that my parents had rented for me from the local shop. The first one I actually owned was a 1989 Ibanez EX350, its a little beat up (the neck has broken twice and its got several nicks and dings) but I still have it. As to why I got it I have no idea I guess I just liked how it looked, hey I was 12.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
The first electric I played was a some no name strat copy I would play on when i would go over my mates house after school everyday in 9th/10th grade. He got lessons but never stuck to them. He eventually sold it for weed. The first Electric i actually owned was A piece of shit Squier 3/4th scale strat i got when i was 18. NEVER stayed in tune, you'd have to tune the thing up to G just to get it to stay in tune for more then 15 minutes i owned that for about 2 years before i got a better one. I'm glad i got rid of that piece of shit,now it's gathering dust in some kid's closet.
A First Act. I'm still using it...
It doesn't sound that bad. Hoping to upgrade soon, not this Christmas tho because I have to get a suit and suits are expensive.

These don't sound like very good ambitions when driving...Judas Priest makes people want to go 200 mph, and Realm of Chaos is now an album for ramming shit. You are dangerous, dangerous people.
Epiphone Les Paul Jr.

it was a good guitar to get me started and 3 years later im still using Epiphone!

Yamaha EG-112 that i still own... it's been four years since i bought it used, and i think i really couldn't get a better deal... that is the advantage of going to buy the guitar with my guitar teacher... :P

I'm really proud of it and my amp too. it is a fat strat copy, and it gives good tones... REALLY HAPPY
