I got my first acoustic when I was a junior in high school, a Harmony made out of construction-grade plywood. About six months later I got my first electric guitar (a Gretsch Roc Jet that I never should have sold) and amp (a Sonax solid state POS that deserves it's own ring in hell).

A weird Kingston with a large metal scratch plate- bought it from a neighborhood kid- i believe he sold it to me without his dad knowing about it (it was his dads guitar). I played that thing through my stereo and through a panasonic boombox for a while before my folks caved in and got me a real guitar- a Sigma acoustic. Sometime in the mid 80's.

$35 for a silver Palmer strat copy. Funny thing is, at the time my best friend and bandmate had a cream/yellow Palmer strat copy too. Eighteen years later I have yet to see even one other Palmer.

First guitar I rented was an Epiphone Black Beauty with gold hardware. The first guitar I owned was a Epiphone LP standard (which I still have) bought in 1991 I believe.
