    I was crazy into Alexi Laiho, and thought that this pink RR shaped ESP was the tits.

    Also, as mentioned before, a Jackson Kelly because of Marty Friedman. He was my God for a little while.

    I first picked up guitar in 2006, so...

    Iceman! I still think it's the coolest looking shape, but they're so damn uncomfortable.

    Some really cool first guitar crushes on here

    Thought of the thread tbh as I read an interview with Courtney Cox of the Iron Maidens bout how when she was 15 she had posters up of the Peavey Vandenberg guitars and later she got her endorsement deal with them or whatever and they actually had in storage the actual pink guitar from the ads she had up on her walls and they gave it to her as a gift, thought that was so cool they did that

    Local shop I used to take lessons at had one of these when I first started, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

    I've always liked strats. The first I ever really wanted was a fender standard strat in navy/midnight blue. That, or when I was into punk/pop punk/ska really heavily I always wanted one of these:

    The first guitar I craved when I started learning (and only had a Strat copy in black with white pickguard, and rosewood board) was the red crackle guitar on the front of the "Progressive Heavy Techniques for Lead Guitar" book. Second was the blue crackle on the other book.

    Times have changed so much, I didn't find out about Ibanez guitars and extra pointy cool shit till a few years later. But I still remember staring at the front of these books (instead of the stuff on the inside which I should've been doing... lol)

    For me, by the time I was really getting into guitar (late 80's) it was all about the Jackson V's (RR and King).
    When I first started playing it was the LP's.

    Forgot about this one, and I feel silly for it since the signature artist for the guitar was one of the reasons I picked up my first guitar. :lol:

    He's also why I want(ed) the KH-4.

    EDIT: And this guitar

    Not the US one with the wider cutaway and the 3-knob placement, the ESP Eclipse I CTM.
