8) mine was a fender-japan ST72 in black/maple-neck w/usa pus. it was in 1987 and was about $700 back then. i was then only 15 and played that black angel for a while til i bought next one. it was heavy but a good one i guess. hard to believe its been more than 30 years since then. i m about 50 now. didnt think my life became this way but it did! i wonder where is that black angel now and who has it. hope they are happy together now and then! thanks my black angel!

My first guitar was a 'no brand' nylon string classical guitar purchased NEW, for me, when I was eight, maybe nine years old.
The guitar had the typical double slotted peg head that classical guitars have, the neck was so thick I could barely wrap my hand around the neck to fret a single note, and the nylon strings were bigger than the typical tendon in your elbow. Talk about unplayable. :lol:
I believe the guitar co$t $14 brand new @ the local 'dime' store & it was likely MIJ but it could have been made on Mars. :lol:
I recall my orchestra instructor really liked it. :-?
I was just sharing information when some morons accused me of trolling :lol:

Harmony Ukulele - circa 1968
First real guitar was a MIJ Univox Les Paul in 73. Think there was a cheap no brand acoustic in between.

In 67 a Hofner violin bass with god awful nylon strings (pocket money wouldn't stretch to replace them) first Saturday job eventually bagged me a Fender P bass, that wasn't a looker, from A1 music in Manchester.
