Destroyer, Ibanez; Smith, Adrian; Maiden, Iron
I played my dad's Corteley (sp?) Les Paul copy and Applause acoustic for a couple of years before I got my personal first guitar, which can be seen in my avatar ( to the left - from '85). It was Christmas '82 in St. Louis, when I got my '83 Gibson Explorer from Silver Strings- a guitar store in U-city that specialized in vintage instruments, oddly enough. I broke the neck in two places one afternoon, the wood is visible on the neck where my thumb has made miles north and south, and I've bashed the body on every door jamb and Doberman Pinscher between here and Missouri. I'm obliged to report that I slipped some fresh strings onto 'er yesterday. Hayell, yeah.

Yamaha Pacifica 112 SJ, can't say it was a really bad guitar but it did the job. I rarely play on it so it mostly just stays in it's bag. It did rarely detune though which is always a plus on a guitar that was meant as a beginners guitar!
