My very first electric guitar - a Top Twenty from the Freemans catalogue!
Framus Strato Gold Deluxe - my second electric guitar
bought at a gig off some guy for £40
A Jedson Les Paul, - it looked so much like the real thing I painted the Gibson logo on the headstock!
My drummer Jeff Davies loved to goad me about Strats being better than Gibsons. As an owner of a Gibson I would never agree, but I always secretly wanted a Strat. This is a 1978 sunburst with a maple neck was my first.
