Your First Guitar?

Recommended Posts

Yamaha FG 180 purchased for £32 (GBP),  June/July 1975 from the local music shop in Woking Surrey UK....along with Johnny Smith books vol 1 & 2.

Wish I still had it, they ask a lot for them now.

Best wishes.

Mine was a Hohner electric, early-to-mid 80s bought in Garwood, NJ. Every now and then I google to try to find the exact model. It was the kind you'd see a lot in mom and pop music stores that sold more lessons than they did guitars.

As I recall in was a tobacco-ish sun-burst and had a strat knock-off body. Terrible single coils that feedbacked like the devil and the world's crappiest dime-store tuners with cheap white plastic tuner knobs. That said, I wish I still had it or at least a photo... 

Anyone know this guitar?!
