    What was your first guitar and amp you started with?

    An Ovation Applause. I used it and abused it. Bought it at a church auction for $90 and never even bought a case.

    Not sure why its on its side... on my web page it's the right way up! Borrowed a friends PRS SE first and then bought the epiphone goth.

    A cheap acoustic (I forget the brand), but after that, I bought a K-Yairi (which is still my favourite guitar), and then I bought a Telecaster and a cheap practise amp, a 5 watt Kornell amp (shortly followed by a Fender Twin, which I still own as well). This was 30 years ago, and cheap guitars and amps back then were utter crap. Nowadays you can buy very good instruments for a fraction of the price; the same is true with amps.

    My first instrument was a violin, followed by a Harmony bass several years later, which turned into an old 1966 Fender Mustang before I changed to guitar.

    Univox Les Paul copy was followed by a 1974 Strat, which unfortunately never sees the light of the stage anymore due to having been pushed aside when I got my JEM and subsequently several RG's.

    For acoustic guitar my brother bought me a no namer from a yard sale with nylon strings which I replaced with a rosewood sided Giannini, then a couple of Ovations, followed by a lot of Adamas's, which I still have a few.

    An old Sears Silvertone-the same one Joe Walsh and Joan Jett started off with. Thank you Sears!!! Haha...no one had amps in those days except for the pros. I want to take this opportunity to thank Joan publicly for letting me play with the Runaways until they found Cheri Curry. I got a good enough sense of what "being on stage and on display" (something guys dont have to deal with). Getting crap for being sexual...thats kinda what teen age girls are all about according to guys. Ugh. Glad I stayed close but chose not to be a "rockstar"

    My first was a Gibson Marauder. Natural finish with a white pickguard.

    Been long gone now, but every once in a while, I get nostalgic and think about finding one to replace it.

    My first guitar was an unbranded nylon string acoustic that I "liberated" from my sister after she stopped taking lessons. Still have it. :)
