My first guitar is my avatar, '78 or so Ampeg "Heavy Stud" Telecaster copy with a 24 3/4" scale, and an original Crate CR1 combo. Still got 'em both, and the Crate still sounds pretty bad unless it's totally clean. Speaker was shot after being used as a monitor amp for years, so I installed a Jensen C12Q. It's about to be used as a cab for a MOD kits 5 watt amp. Have more guitars and amps now, but since the originals made it through my misspent youth, I ain't getting rid of them!
