First guitar was a Columbus SG copy from Woolworths in West London. Got it with a very cheap amp (can't remember the make). The whole ensemble cost £30.(30 quid). It was dark brown with a black pick guard and looked mean as hell in my bedroom mirror. My older brother had just bought the Aftermath album by the Stones, and was also playing 'Not Fade Away' repeatedly on his Dansette in the attic. I was 12 years and thinking 'I'm going to have a piece of that' and proceeded to drive the family mad by loudly attempting to play some of the tracks on that album, whilst also trying to sound like Jagger on vocals. The rest is history. After 54 more years of playing, it is still mainly Blues and Rand B, now in my Ron Kirn S type (Number 1207).One day, I hope to finally get the hang of this thing!
