My first was an Epiphone and I have no idea what the model was. I bought it new in 1988 and paid right at $200 for it. I remember that it was a Strat style, 3 single coils, white with a black pick guard.


Hello !
my second ``first one`` ( after many years not playing at all ) i got myself a Epiphone LP junior 57 reissue for 220 Euro

Humbucker P100 not that great sounding but good enough to exercise until i decided to keep on learning seriously ,
i use it now when i sit in the garden . cool.gif

I think Epiphone guitars are still worth the money .

Hahaahahaa you're killin' me!! laugh.gif Yeah I guess not, all I have been playing is what I guess you would call superstrats ever since.
I thought it was pretty funny too that my guitar was made by a company that made motorcycles, or a company by the same name ? I have no idea tongue.gif

Don't be dissing the Suzuki's mate!!
I have 2, one is my Rat Black Chop and the other goes fast enough to make your eyes bleed!!!

I also have a Suzuki Nagoya electro/acoustic.These are Hand Built in the Nagoya Factory. Absolutely beautiful instrument!! (And worth a few pennies too!!)

My first guitar was a Nylon Strung 3/4 size Classical, followed by a full size Classical. My first Electric was a Hondo, then another Hondo, a Westone Raider. Shortly after this I did my first 'Home Built Guitar'. (I was about 17 or so)

When I first started playing, I borrowed a cheap classical guitar from a family friend to take lessons with. After a while when it looked like it would stick my mom bought me an old $75 Guild electric that looked very similar to a Jackson style guitar.

I am really thinking of recuperating that small acoustic with the humbucker in it smile.gif the friend to which I have sold it lives pretty close from my place and hopefully, I still have his number.
