This is something that has always interested me. Was there a piece of gear that was particularly popular among your generation when you were younger? What year was it and how old were you? I remember when I first started playing in the mid 2000s, myself and every guitarist I knew in their late teens wanted a Fender Hot Rod Deville. Now we've grown up we all play different amps but the hot rod Deville was what we all wanted back in the day.
