Inspired by this video by John Browne from Monuments:



...I ran through my own history and replied with this:

"I enjoyed watching this video! My first guitar back in 2002 was an acoustic Fender Sierra Vista. Had a pickup in it, and I did a few recordings, but I think they've been lost in time. Luckily. Then at christmas that year, I believe, I got a Hohner Stratocaster, that my parents bought from a set of friends. In 2003, when I was 14 I got a Yamaha AES800. This guitar was A DREAM to play, though the price was sort of lower midrange, I suppose. The action was fantastic and it was poribably the first guitar I got that made me feel I could play faster stuff (for better or worse). In 2005 at some point I wanted to play Dream Theater's A Change of Season, and I got myself a demo model of the Schecter C7 diamond series that came out in 1999, but this was apparently made before that. That's the information I've been able to get at least. It came with a Floyd Rose, which none of the other models at the time did. Then a few years of no new guitars, as far as I remember, untill I bought a "Wolf"/HK guitar on Ebay for very little money. It played alright, but it was what it was, nothing special. At the time I also got a 6 string bass from the same company. That was actually surprisingly good. In 2009 I bought an American Stratocaster in olympic white. Played and sounded like one. Sold it to afford an 8 string Iron Label. Sold that to venture into the land of Prestige Ibanez' with a lazer blue RG3570. That was my first sort of expensive or higher end guitar, and I don't think I'll ever sell it unless absolutely necesary. I think in the meanwhile I owned a few different VERY cheap guitars that I got for almost free. Samick, korean Hamer, you name it. Those have been sold again. Basically all my guitars to this point, except for the Schecter and RG3570Z had been sold again. Eventually bought myself a really nice Ibanez 7 string. The RG752MFS-VFD. Beauty. 39 made world wide as far as I know. Limited run. Lovely to play, my favorite guitar. Then just a week ago or so I sold my Schecter C7, which had actually been listed for almost 3 years. I had changed the pickups for a D-sonic and Air Norton (Petrucci style), and changed the licensed under FR bridge for an original. Basically that alone must have been around $500, plus the guitar of course, and I ended up getting about $250 for the whole thing. Bit disappointing, but I was getting sick of the sight of the guitar, given that it had been for sale for so long. I put the money towards an RGA8, which arrived yesterday.

If you don't know it, check out the RG752MFS-VFD on pictures at least. Killer guitar!"

I've owned so many I don't know if I could even remember them all. I think I could make a short vid with a pic of each in sequence. I'm pretty sure I have pics of all of them.

My first electric was one of these:-

Next was one of these:-

Then came 'Gadget':-

Followed by several of these Deans as a short-lived Endorsee!!!
In the years since there has been a steady procession of different guitars including several Teles (still have my 72 Thinline, a TC 90 and my G&L Asat), loads of Strats (many Signature models etc, still own my 73, a Warmoth Bodied Custom Shop Neck, The Pink Plankster, a plethora of Yamaha Electrics and Acoustics, still have my RGX, a Palm Bay, a Patrick Eggle Berlin Pro, a few basses and quite a few Home Builds. A couple of Ibanez's still have an RG350. Sure I've forgotten a few! I'l add more as I remember!!!!
