This is the only pic I can find of my first guitar. Lumberyard special, strings were baling wire. I've put legs on it now, and use it as a coffee table.

That's not me holding it.:punk:

Ouch. Tanglewoods are nice guitars in their price range.

Thankfully she has since been fixed. It's a quality guitar for sure, but it's not liking Elixer strings too much.

Mine was an Epiphone DR-200...that my brother borrowed and never returned...in fact it is the only guitar he has...that was 9 years ago :glare:

I played around with it for about a year then he borrowed it for a "weekend".....that'll teach me! LOL

My first was an Ibanez Acoustic/Electric AEF37E. It's a beautiful instrument and sounds wonderful.

Actually, they do. They had four of them when I bought mine, one transparent black, one transparent violet, and one transparent blue, and one transparent red. I picked out the black one, liked the grain on it the best.

I was going to post a pic of mine, but said I couldn't since I don't have enough posts yet. :dunno::crying2: Guess I better start posting more stupid questions. :helpsmili:eek::confused::tomato::winkwink:

They sort of come in blue. The Ibanez AEF37E (the one in the picture I posted) comes in Cherryburst and Gold/Sunshine. The AEF30E, which is a previous model of the same guitar, and has no particularly noticeable differences from the AEF37E, comes in the colors that Leon72 described.

Here is the blue one, it's an Ibanez AEF30EMS

my first guitar was some POS that my parents bought for me as a kid. The first guitar I bought on my own was a Sigma DM-2 I bought about 10 yrs ago. Sigma is a "made in Korea" subsidiary of Martin. I have it to date and play it too...great sounding guitar even though it's a laminate top.

My first guitar arrived when I was 6, and it was really poor - just a toy really. The next one was given to me by my uncle and it was not much better. A broken neck on a classical that had steel strings put on it - it was awful.

Woah, huh? I didn't even know that existed. The blue one I was reffering to is this one:

It's more aqua than blue, really.

My dad, who was basically a toolmaker collaborated with my best mate's dad who was a carpenter and they built two identical solid body jobs. Looked a bit like a Burn's Special, Hank Marvin signature jobs. (We lived in Britain then and the Shadows were our hero's) My dad copied a Bigsby tremolo and bridge from pictures and I reckon the two he built would have landed him in a copyright lawsuit quick-smart in this day and age for sure. Come to that, the two completed guitars if finished appropriately and of course with better pups and machine heads on them, probably had the potential to land both dad's in the slammer. My old man challenged me that if I stuck with it for a complete year he would buy me a 'proper' guitar. I did and he was true to his word and got me a Watkins Strat copy. I guess that would have been the equivalent of an Indonesian built squier perhaps, these days. That was back in about 1961 when I was, er ... a lot younger. I've still got the Strat copy hanging up at the back of my workshop for sentimental reasons but it's long since lost it's hardware and strings. The home made job never survived the move to the Antipodes unfortunately. That's the one I would like to still have, though I doubt I'd enjoy playing it too much now.

My folks bought me my first gittar back in the mid 50's for my 10th birthday. No idea as to the make of it, but it was real hard to play, so usually picked up my pa's Gibson when he'd let me. Later on, in 1964, I bought a brand new Fender Strat, so that would be the 1st gittar I bought. Had it for several months before I could afford an amp, lol.

My first guitar was a Samick LF-015, acoustic guitar. I still play it, great for a beginner like me. My first electric was a Casino, no (real) name cheap strat copy. I gave the casino away...now I play a Michael Kelly Patriot Shadow.

my first was-- no, is a Fender Strat with locking tremolo made in US in 88 or 89 i think. i bought it in San Fran at a Guitar Center. man, did the sales guy ever see ME coming. he sold it to me gladly and nearly gasped when i asked him to throw in a hard body case. his associate tossed in some strings and a couple of picks (which i've only recently begun to use) while he went "upstairs to record the serial #". i think he pulled a switch or something. anyway, 2 weeks or so after i bought it, Guitar Center had a sale on that very model at $140 less what i paid. needless to say i was a baby-faced 19 year old anxious for my first electric guitar experience-- i've kept it all these years and have yet to buy a different model.

a buddy of mine who i consider to be a VERY good player says he likes my guitar and wanted to make me an offer. no way! it may be a bit out of shape, not intonated correctly, never Luthiered and the fret board may be deteriorating due to sweat- but it's mine and it can sing.

Just bought my first guitar a few weeks ago. A Seagull S6. Solid ceader top dreadnaught acoustic. It came highly recomended, and so far has lived up to the hype.

Mine was an early '50s Maton accoustic small body, bought it off a mate in Perth, looked a bit daggy so I "renovated" it and stuffed it up, still have it in the shed but it would have been worth dollars now as an antique because it was in pristine condition befor I "fixed" it.

First electric was a Peavy T-60 which was a great guitar, twin humbuckers , gave it to my son because it wasn't a Fender or Gibson, he on sold it to his music teacher a couple of years down the track for the same reason, music teacher snapped it up and still plays it in studio work in preference to a Telecaster or Gibson - good slide guitar but a bit heavy for gigs.
