    Sellers regret

    Everyone has done it. Sold an instrument and kicked yourself in the ass for it every second since. So share with us what it was. I have 2 a fender fat strat with a arctic white maple neck Duncan blackouts and creame pick guard. The other was my Jeff hanneman signature esp

    I still don't regret that I sold it because I prefer my current rig (which was 50% financed by its sale), but I do REALLY wish I still had this thing for a variety of reasons.

    That RG1527, for sure. Best neck I've ever played on an Ibby, I just didn't like the DActivators and ended up selling before I got around to trying something else. I sold it to Chris, who sold it to a member here who sold it locally, I guess, and we now have no idea where it is. And both Chris and I are now kicking ourselves.

    If anyone sees a blue 1527 with a "top secret" sticker behind the bridge, buy it.

    Over the course of about 20 years, I've sold or traded numerous guitars (including three Gibson Les Pauls), amps, and pedals, and I haven't regretted anything. I've found that the existance of eBay makes it easy to let go of things because there is usually the ability to reacquire them if regret overwhelms you.

    The Strypoverse. Ugh, needed $$$ badly at the time, but I really miss that one.

    I miss Greenie the UV777GR, but the offer from the the guy I sold it to was just too good to pass up. If I was rolling in $$$, it'd still be here.

    My Les Paul Studio. I didn't really think it was a great guitar, and it hardly got play because my Ibanez are way better, but it was sentimental.
