Still have my first too...a weird early 80’s Ibanez that wasn’t a copy of anything.

Still have mine too but it’s had a few parts changed over the years. 1990 Squier Strat; black with rosewood board.

Edit: good on the OP for posting this on the forum.

So do I.... mostly cuz it's a nice axe but also because I overpaid so much in a pawn shop when I was 16 that it's only caught up in value in the last 5 or so years. I could make a bit of profit if I sold it now, but it's too good ( and my only electric, for the moment at least - patiently working on that).

Gibson Sonex 180 Custom. Thought it was an LP Custom when I bought it. No regrets despite the stupid.

I've actually bought ( on eBay before it went to snot and our dollar was high) another and flipped it since ( the dude from 13 Engines bought it).... as well as a spare ( backup) neck ( sanded it down and oiled it for feel and was worried, needlessly it turns out, about warpage).

I had a Pan Les Paul bought in 72 maybe. It was a POS. Tossed it in the dumpster about 10 years ago and tried to do a Townsehend number swing it against the ground like an axe and so on. Even though it was a bolt on neck the damn thing wouldn’t break. Tough guitar.

I regularly see "vendor's regret" ads in Vintage Guitar magazine; usually seeking some 60's or maybe 70's guitar they sold way back when, and would love to have back again.

People re-marry their first wife now and then, too. Sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Still have my first guitar, 1970's Mann LP copy. I've had it since 1978. Haven't played it in years, just sits on a shelf in the basement but I'll never sell it. It's got no electronics in it but one of these days I'll bring it back to life.

I know I can't ever get my first electric back, because I'm the guy that cannibalized it for parts. But it would be nice to strum a Kent Videocaster once more before the great beyond.

My first was a classical & I still have it, still play it.
My first electric was a Les Paul copy I have since modded--and I play it now.
Before I modded I barely even looked at it...

My first was a Fender Lead 2 and I can't even remember what I did with it. I only had it for about 6 months before I bought a Fender Telecaster deluxe to replace it. I don't even remember what I did with that guitar.

Still have my first guitar too. Gived it to a friend when I got a better guitar, he used it to learn to play.
Fast forward 15 years later, him and couple of my friends paid for a full restoration and gaved it to my as a weeding gift!!!!!!!!

I wish I could relate to threads like this... I've been told I'm weird because I can't think of any objects I own that I have a sentimental attachment to. For gear, most of it was garbage in my first 5 years of playing. It was either tossed or sold off and I don't miss them one bit. Maybe some day I'll fall in love, but until then I'll just use whatever works for the time being.

Still have my first guitar. It’s an absolute piece of crap but I will never part with it. Too many memories that were made with that guitar to ever dispose of it.
