    I was looking for a thread like this but I failed to find one, so I decided to create one! If a thread like this does already exist, then I apologize to the admins and you can feel free to delete my thread :lol:

    Anyway, I'll start it off. My first guitar, the one that started it all, was a B.C. Rich Warlock, Bronze Series. My brother had been playing guitar for something like 2 years when I decided I wanted to pick up the axe too. My cousin wanted to get rid of his old Warlock cause he had started playing bass instead, and he told me I could get it for like 50 bucks. I bought it off him of course, and played the hell out of it over the next four years. When I was starting to get into all the shreddy stuff I went through a big Yngwie phase. Influenced by him, I decided to remove the neck and scallop the fretboard. I wasn't careful enough though, and I kinda ruined the frets in the process.

    I still have it. In fact, it's sitting up against the wall behind me. This guitar has too much sentimental value for me to get rid of it, so it will accompany me, always :shred:

    Alright, guys! Go ahead and tell us all about the one that started it all! :shred:

    Oh man I just realized I don't have a picture of it.. but it was an Ibanez GRG170DX.
    Great guitar and very versatile (coil split for like 200 dollar guitar)

    My actually first guitar was some Aria classical guitar.

    A squier sunburst strat that came with a practice amp, some picks, and a "bag".
    I sold the guitar to my friend but still have the amp (which sucks).
    It was a good guitar besides the hardware and electronics.

    I went from a bc rich Bich, to a Dean cadillac, to a schecter omen 6 in a month. finally stuck with the schecter for a while because it was just godly compared to the other 2 :lol:

    probably why i like schecter so much, the first guitar i really fell in love with was a schecter :wub:

    Black Squier Strat for me. As said before, it was a decent guitar but the hardware and electronics sucked.
