      My first guitar and amp. A Teisco that I got from a yardsale for $7.50. The amp is a Gorilla I got for $15.

      EDIT: I forgot I tried putting a humbucker out of a Lori LP copy. I also duct taped it. Woo for 8th grade.

          Still have it and will never get rid of it. 70's Epi BARD 12-string. Got it in 1980. Plays and sounds like a dream. Everyone that plays it falls in love with it.

            My first guitar was a Yamaha FG-seires acoutsic,my first electric was a Harmony strat copy-which I eventually modified the heck out of-with Bill Lawrence h.b. in the bridge,a Floyd (1st kid in my town with one, since they'd just come out!).A real hatchet-job. But one which I am planning to re-store soon,with new pups, locking tuners on a new neck and and re-finish in Deep Purple. Get this -the body is plywood lmao.

              I've got a late 70's Harmony Strat copy. I refin'd it, reshaped the headstock to make it look more "stratish", put in new electronics, and put on a custom logo. When I stripped it down, I expected plywood too. But it is actually solid. Here's a pic.

                I got a peavey solid-body in 1979. Not a bad guitar actually, but I never liked the neck, it was wafer-thin. Slippery too.

                    bottom of the line Alvarez dread!

                    $160 new in 1984. I loved that guitar and played it to death for eight years when it finally fell apart, I played my first gig with that guitar.

                    I got laid because of that guitar, I loved it.

                    then I played a Martin one day and realized what a guitar could be, like night and day.

                    I still can't afford the Martin, but I'll always remember being blown away by the rich sound it had!

                          Here is mine



                          An Ibanez GRX40 I got in the Ibanez starter pack. I have been playing it for about a month now.

                            A lefty sunburst Johnson Strat. I eventually modded it all to hell. I changed all the pickups, coil taps on the bridge and neck, made a diamond plate metal pickguard and scratchplate, installed a new neck with locking tuners and graphite nut, and scalloped the new neck. It was a freaky guitar that sounded pretty good and held it's tune even after divebombs.

                            I eventually parted it out on eBay a few months after I got my Charvel Model 3.
