In 1974 mine was an AVON SG copy... I had to wait 4 months before I could afford a little amp to play it through and then it was a Woolworth's 'Audition' (Teisco) amp. I paid £45 new fot the AVON and £30 new for the amp... The AVON went 18 months later for new Fender Stratocaster but I kept the amp - still have it - still works as day 1 !!
Hear the Audition amp here:

Tiesco Del Ray from Mammoth Mart (our big department store in my town). I took it apart and stripped the burst finish off of it. Then I refinished it with a Minwax wood stain. Probably the dumbest thing to do to the guitar.

Acoustic/electric, Alvarez RD20SC. First electric, a Squier ’51.
Obviously I haven’t been playing as long as many of you.

God, this brings back memories. Almost 20 years ago, but it was a Fender Squier Bullet with a Peavey Rage amp. About 6 months after getting my first and cheapest guitar, I got my second and most expensive even to this day... a custom Carvin with all the bells and whistles along with a Carvin half stack.

My first post in many many moons (and the 1st under this format!), so why not my 1st guitar?
My dad bought me a crappy acoustic in 1964 for $5.00 (I was 11). The pickguard was PAINTED on. There was this band called The Beatles and I needed to learn guitar! You could play cowboy chords (sort of), but that was it.
My 1st electric was also a gift from from my dad when I was 13. It was a Kay single pickup solidbody that he bought at a Montgomery Wards sidewalk sale for $19.95! I was unaware that you could adjust the neck and action, so I played it as it was! I was able to plug it into our "hifi".
I have no idea what ever happened to either of them.

1974 Martin D-18 bought new in 1986 for $500 in a moving sale at a local mom 'n pop store. I had started learning to play a few years before that on a strat that a friend loaned me long-term while he went to medical school. It's still my most cherished possession.
