1965-1967ish Yamaha FG-165S
Mine's long gone...acoustic acquired in 1965 as a Christmas present and traded 7 years later for Paul McCartney's Ram album
It was a beast to play...action that would probably be better suited to slide (if I'd only known what that was) and proved to be more frustrating than enjoyable (hence the trade).
3 Years after the trade I picked up a 1975 Harmony Sovereign which I still have and 3 years after that a LP Deluxe (which I still have also).
so...here's my *second* guitar,missing the second pick guard which is now on it.
Gone since 1980....here's my 1971 Telecaster, blonde, with a '69 Gibson Soapbar in the neck, 3 black speed knobs, the rest was stock. It killed...should have never sold it.
From Sears, naturally!
First real amp too (if you can call it that) - a Stage 210 tranny.
Of everything showing in this picture, the thing I wish I still had the most was the Farrah Fawcett poster!
I always had BIG ears
Check out the left hand fingering
1980 Westbury Standard
Here's my first electric in 1965 and then with my first burst 41 years later in 2006:
A 3/4 size Harmony. I think I learned the Batman theme first.
I saved my money and bought a '64 Gretsch Tennessean for $264.00...I still have the receipt and the guitar!
It was my first real electric guitar. I owned a late '50s Guild f-hole with a Dearmond pickup a few years prior.
Don't laugh, I was 18 when this was taken. My first guitar was my 1964 Epiphone FT85 12-String. My mom bought it new during her hippie days (she wanted to be Joan Biaz). For the most part I played it as a six string. I can remember when I got my first six string how wonderful the neck felt when compared to this guitar. Man did I learn to stretch my fingers.
Ok Boomer...you should win an award for the white trousers!!
...but I wouldn't say that if you had all of those GUNS in close reach!!
My first baby is a 1989 Fender Squire strat that I had members of Pantera autograph back in the day. She is now retired.
Still have it! My '83 Carvin DC150.
Ovation Viper III.
This one's not mine, but the exact same. Mine is gone.
