    My first guitar was a 19th century French parlour guitar that my Dad bought as part of a mixed lot in an auction. I still have it, and it's really quite good.

    I sold my first which was my 18th birthday present,I'm 50 now! ,a Tokai strat,and whilst it was to fund another guitar,I regret it now. That was about 4 yrs ago. I recently got in touch with the guy I sold it to,and he still has it. He says he'll give me first dibs on it if he sells it. To be honest,he can name his price,cos I'll be paying it!

    Every day I check the eBay using my "Antoria" saved search - I've been looking for my old Goldtop to come up for sale for about 15 years on there. Still no sign. When/if it does... I'll have it back, money no object.

    It's almost certainly in @HarrySeven 's shed.
    I'm pretty sure it isn't... is it, H7?

    I was about to say;

    "The only one I've got has had a bit of a life...not much Antoria left...black Grovers, non-original pickups, different pickup rings, brass nut, some added switches, etc."

    But I thought it would be far too cruel. ;)

    However, on a serious note @impmann - I'll add that to my list of stuff I keep an eye open for. You never know! :)

    Hard to get nostalgic over the piece of crap that was my first guitar. Dreadful late 70's bolt on LP copy. I disliked it that much that I eventually through it in a skip. Second guitar was an early 80's Squier Tele....was much better but not something I'd ever want back.

    If anyone ever sees a lefty red Chris Eccleshall Flying V, its former owner would love to have it back.

    It was a part exchange that made complete sense at the time. I was still very much a beginner and felt completely ridiculous fumbling bar chords on such a flashy instrument. So for my 18th birthday I got a cool solid body Epiphone of uncertain provenance (I still don’t actually know what it is) and an old AC30 and my Eccleshall ended up on the wall of Holiday Music.

    35 years on I’ve still got the Epiphone and the AC30 but even now every couple of years I do a hopeful google search for “Eccleshall Flying V” and every year, I draw a blank. One day...

    That's pretty much exactly how I remember the '70s.

    Plus a few power cuts.  And the summer of '76 was a bit too endless....

    Flares. Too much hair. Bad taches. No jobs. Too much brown. Too much lime green. Bad collars. Etc etc

    You’ll get that first guitar back and be greeted with poor frets, heavy weight, weak pickups, bad action, thin weedy sound and general malaise. Promise

    Mine was a Washburn A20 with a Kahler added by the previous owner.
    I got it back after having it stored for about 20 years at my Mum's.
    It was a bit shit- I left it in a storage unit in the UK when we moved here.
    I am the juice of four limes.

    Avon calling - no thanks - I wouldn't want to buy this back but I wouldn't mind trying all my riffs and licks out on it seeing as I couldn't play anything other than Doobie riffs in open E and mostly Bass lines on the low E

    £45 new from ABC Music in Weybridge in '73 with a red corduroy strap and cable and pick thrown in... Still got the strap but the curly cable went tits up...lost the pick...

     Only buy it if it was good. You sold it for a good reason surely? Never return for sentimental reasons.

    I’ve been getting all misty eyed lately about my first real guitar - a Fender California Strat. If anyone comes across a black one with maple board, let me know - I’d like to buy it back!

    The advantage to us from the 70s, we can change our hairstyle (or lack of hair), stop wearing flares (soon I promise), and look mainly presentable. Todays yoof will be covered in bad tatts for life!

    So I think I've spotted my very first guitar for sale.  I think I sold it back in 1990 and I'm 99% sure it's the one I owned.  A sentimental part of me is dying to get it back, but I know there was a reason to get rid of it in the first place. It's being sold for a LOT more than I sold it for all those years ago. But but but.. 

    So head or heart decision time.

    Anyone else bought back their very first guitar?
    Come on then @Flanging_Fred have you bought it??
    Always be yourself! Unless you can be Batman, in which case always be Batman.
    My boss told me "dress for the job you want, not the job you have"... now I'm sat in a disciplinary meeting dressed as Batman.

    Seeing that one was what set off the nostalgia / gear lust. And that's almost three times what I paid for mine new!

    I know exactly where my first guitar is. It was a Hondo LP Copy and it was rubbish. I laugh at the prices they go for today. Terrible terrible instrument - ok sentimental value but an utter turd of a guitar.

    It's now with an ex who got in touch a while back and told me she still has it - well you can keep it luv.

    Not yet but I put a bid in so now I just have to wait and see... 

    I'll reveal all when the dust has settled, although I wouldn't hold your breath.

    Looking forward to the update and finding out what your thoughts are on it once it's back in your hands. Will it be a sentimental keeper or will there be a sobering truth to it? Hopefully the former and you can have the love affair and honeymoon all over again.
