Mine was an Spanish guitar (I live in Spain
). My mum's uncle gave me the guitar as a birthday's present when I got ten, I guess.
That guitar crashed around one year later and I probably had learnt a maximum of 4 traditional Spanish songs (that my sister taught me).
Then, I bought (with my money and some help from my daddy) my first acoustic, It was a Roderich Paesold really really cheap (the equivalent to 30 euro) , but a I got really good moments with it.
It's still here, with me, more than 30 years later (sounding awfully...)
