The first guitar I ever got was a $100 Hondo Les Paul copy for my birthday. That guitar was extremely heavy! lol. Then I bought a white Kramer Focus. I can't remember which series number it was but it had the just the bridge and neck pickups. I never really like having the middle pickup as it gets in my way. Probably the reason I've never owned a Fender strat and probably shows that my picking technique needed help. 🙂 Then I got a classical nylon string guitar. I love the feel of the wide neck and the sound is beautiful. This isn't an expensive classical guitar and is rather on the cheap side. I've tried some more expensive models but for some reason this inexpensive classical guitar always felt the best…probably because I don't know what I'm doing! 😛 Perfect action and spacing on the neck. I still have this guitar. My most played guitar is my Ibanez radius model. It's the Joe Satriani model but it never helped me play like him. lol. 😛 I replaced the 2 stock pickups and put EMG's in there. For rock music EMG's have a nice sound to them. Something about powered (9 volt battery) pickups maybe. I used to own a nice bright yellow Ibanez sabre model guitar. Frank Gambale inspired me and I had to get one. It lived up to its name as it's the thinnest guitar I've ever played. I sold this to a friend at work when money seemed more important. Looking back I wish I had kept this one along with some others. A couple of other guitars that I used to have are a Roger Mcguinn special edition Rickenbacker and a Jackson Randy Rhoads V. The Roger Mcguinn guitar had 12 strings and was tedious to restring! Maybe that's why I sold it. Heheh. It had a floating bridge which was the shape of an R and you had to keep constant tention on the strings while stringing them up since there was nothing holding the strings in place under the R bridge. Just a system which held the ball of the strings in place with no bottom to it. It's hard to explain and I hope that makes some sense. The Randy Rhoads V was the one with one point longer than the other. This was the only used guitar that I'd ever owned. I never really got comfortable playing it as its neck never really suited my hands. It looked really great though! Those are the 3 guitars that I sold and again wish that I had kept.
So these 4 guitars are now in storage once again. I really should have at least polished them. But time has been kind to them as they are being preserved well. Maybe one day I'll get the doctor to hammer my finger so that I can play again fully. But hmmmm…probably not! I can still play for the most part but I've forgotten pretty much every song that I learned. I may still remember "Goodbye Blue Sky" and "Tears in Heaven." Those worked great on the classical guitar. 🙂
