I`ve searched high n low on the internet for pictures of my first guitar, it was my cousins who is 12 years older than me and gave it to me when I was about 12, I have no idea of the make, it looked hideous but I guess it served its purpose, I have no idea what happened to it since! laugh.gif

This isnt the exact guitar but it looked more or less the same as the guitar at the end on the right

Mine was a cheap strat shaped guitar, brandname "Riverstring" tongue.gif
It was decent as a beginner guitar but went out of tune alot.
After playing it 4 months i sold it to a friend who i made start playing guitar, and he still plays it biggrin.gif

I dont have a real photo of it but this is the picture from the shop.
Before i sold it i planned to get a custom pickguard for it (i hated the white one on the blue guitar), it would have looked awesome but then i was getting another guitar and selling this so i never did it.
the second pic is a quick preview i made back then, for how it would look cool.gif

Great thread to see what some of the more experienced players started with smile.gif
My first guitar is the one in my signature... and ESP LTD Viper 100FM... I think it has served me pretty well so far as a started, and I am still learning a lot. I like that its a very heavy guitar, I've gone to my local Guitar Center and played around with some other guitars, and they feel like a sheet a paper in my hands when compared to my current guitar.. It is easily like 2 or 3 times heavier than other guitars I've picked up.. I kind of like it that way.
I am saving up for a Fender American Strat, hopefully I will get it sometime next year, I only put aside like $10 a week for it in a savings I made just for that purpose lol. By then, I will definitely be a much better guitar player and deserving of it smile.gif haha

My first was a Japanese made guitar branded with the name Taro for import into Canada. It was a Gibson SG copy. I sold it when I was 16 to buy drums. I don't think it was very good, but it may have been. Taro manufactured and imported guitars into Canada in the 70's. Mine was Angus Young red. I remember, my brother had a Black body with ivory inlay Les Paul from the same company. My brother's guitar is still with him after more than 30 years. I searched but couldn't find any links on Taro guitars, other than people searching for information on Taro Guitars.

Cheers!

I first played the acoustic guitar for about a year, i don't know the brand, but the action is very high.
After about a year I bought an electric guitar, a silvertone sik1 shredder. I still have it and play alot, because I believe the guitarist makes the music, not the guitar.



When I have enough money, I will buy an Ibanez, but I will never sell this one.

This guy, almost years ago. Still have it, still like it, although I play a LP most of the time. I believe that when you do something, make a commitment in it, believe in yourself, i.e., get good equipment, best you can afford, right from the get go.

This is a cool topic. But sad. Mine was a black Peavey Tracer with 24 frets and a Kahler Spyder trem. My late father got it for me at a pawn shop. It was awesome. I left it in a drummers basement one weekend, because I planned on returning the next weekend to jam. I didn't going over because of work. But the drummer had another dude that I didn't know come by. That dude left with my guitar. My friend and I hunted him down and found him. We convinced him to bring it outside in order to avoid broken windows. When it arrived It had a 22 fret maple fingerboard neck, all of the fine tuners were missing and the bridge was blocked. It also played like caca.

Though I regret the entire scenario, including my resulting behavior, I cracked the the guy in the face a couple times and disowned the drummer (but he and I worked things out a year or so later).

I'm constantly on the lookout for a similar guitar. I'd buy it in a second for admittedly false sentiment.

Mine was an Ibanez Silver Series Strat. I bought it new in 1977 in Hong Kong. I've still got it - though it's out on loan to a friend and has been for quite a few years. Think Ibanez only made them for two years as Fender got a bit upset. I replaced it with a Gibson semi.

Details and pictures of the Silver Series here and here.

Yeah, those were the years now known as Pre and Post Copyright! Out of the same factory as Ibanez came things like Grant, Avon, and a few others including Tokai! It was when Fender™ and Gibson™ won their court battles that Ibanez then released the 'Roadstar' Series with re-designed Headstock!
I have one of those early 70's Grants!!

Friend had an Avon Gibson EBO bass at the time plus an Ibanez Fender Jazz copy - guess there was a fair chance that all three (Ibanez Silver, EBO and Jazz) may have come from the same factory cool.gif .

Quite possibly!!! Some of those early copies are getting quite collectible!!! The Factory was the Fujigen which is also why the quality of those instruments was so good!!!!
