Rockwood by Hohner sunburst strat
Squier Stagemaster purple
Epiphone LP Special black
1st: Kramer Aerostar. Van Halen was my original inspiration to pick up the guitar so of course I went for the same brand of instrument - like the gullible naive teen that I was.
I got rid of it down the line - I think for guitar #3 - but it was perfectly fine for what I wanted at the time, I’d be interested to try one again to see how it played (now that I understand a lot more about setup etc). This isn’t mine but it’s exactly the same model/colour:
2nd: Gibson Les Paul Custom. My grandad had stuck some money away for me when I was a kid, and I was allowed to spend it once I turned 18, so what finer choice than a shiny new Les Paul. I still own this, though I haven’t played it for ages - no longer a big Les Paul guy.
3rd: Yamaha Pacifica 604
I can’t quite recall why I went for this particular model, I think perhaps I wanted something with a decent tremolo on it, which the Kramer didn’t have, the trem on the Kramer was terrible for tuning stability although it’s quite possible that this was down to user cluelessness.
Anyway - I liked it at the time and it served me well, but I ended up using it as part exchange for my next guitar, an Ibanez S540, as I delved into the murky waters of Floyd Rosedom for the first time.
Again this isn’t the Yamaha I owned, but it’s the same model/colour:
Music Master/Duo Sonic
I was fortunate. Dad let me play his '46 Martin. That is, until I got Jon Anderson's signature on it.
Then dad got me this..! Guild d25M
Who says rock n roll is a waste!?
I honestly can't remember which was first.
I know the LPC was mine in '80.

Kramer Focus 3000
Hamer Special (81-82)...killer guitar...very much like this
First guitar: 1964 Kent Polaris 1 - was originally a sunburst. It stripped it (sigh) I still have her and she still plays well.
Second Guitar: 1973 Stratocaster - was originally sunburst. Wore off all the lacquer in a few years and had so many complaints from venue owners I had it repainted. (another sigh). My most precious possession. Toured with her for almost 25 years. She knows the story of my life better than any human.
Third Guitar: 1973 Gibson SG Custom. - only had it for a couple of years. We didn't love each other. This pic is not her, this is a SG3 but it is a lot like her but I like this one.
Fender player redondo acoustic

Japanese 1960's electric from a pawn shop. Kay/tiesco type thing.

The other two are long gone.

Sort of... I have 5 of them... 2xS800 2xS900 and an S600
1970 'Global' branded MIJ flat top LP that had been gutted, then a new Squier HSS that got a lot of mods until I converted it to SSS and an Armstrong Blender with a reverse slant bridge pickup.
I quickly started buying broken guitars that I fixed up and flipped. These were the ones that stuck around for playing: Samick Explorer, Epiphone LP Junior, Squier Tele Standard, and Epiphone G-400 SG, same Strat as above:
Ned Callan SG
1976 Epiphone FT-120
1971 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe goldtop
1986 Kramer Ferrington
I sold the Les Paul when I went off to Army Basic Training in 1978.
Gave the Epiphone to a local drug & alcohol treatment center two years ago.
I still have the Kramer Ferrington.
I started playing in 1957, so my first three were from the 1950/1960s.
But my first guitar was a 1958 Les Paul jr.
Second was a Martin D18, but don’t remember the actual year.
My third was( and is, still have it) 1961 Gibson ES 355
