    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.
