Default Gear you let go of, wish you'd kept...

Hey, what are your 'gear remorse' items?

I had a Roland JC 77 amp... wish I'd have kept it..
I also wish I kept my old Ross Distortion from the 80's, be a cool relic from the past. Had a Morley Distortion box too that sounded awesome....

Dang... miss that gear!

A Guild D40 acoustic that I bought new in 1978. Beautiful guitar, never should have sold it.

Hmmm...

I haven't regret letting something go yet because it is always replaced with something better. I used to have a 7-string, sometimes I wished I still had one, but not really...

I guess when a person gets older, you get sentimental about the stuff from the early days, things you just cannot get anymore.....

I wish I would have kept my 1st acoustic guitar, it was a Yamaha cheapie but I loved it more than any acoustic guitar I have bought since.

A 1974 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with a custom 3rd pup that I used (borrowed) for my first ever album. I didn't have the $700 to buy it from my buddy, and when I finally did, it was already sold.

I wish I still had my first electric guitar, which was a Kapa black and white teardrop thing. It was my pride and joy, but at the same time I couldn't wait to replace it. Somewhere along the line my brother smashed it in the driveway.

It's the nostalgia thing ronpfid is talking about. I'd be curious to know if it was as horrible to play and sound as I remember it .

2 things

Taurus II bass pedals - Sold them about over 25 years ago for 200 bucks.
1974 Rickenbacker Jet Black 4001 Bass - 20 years ago - forget the actual amount but it was to a friend and less than market value for sure.

Those 2 haunt me to this day.

In my case, it was to scrape together money for the "once in a lifetime" honeymoon. And it was a once in a lifetime trip. No regrets there. The biggest downside to selling the guitar was that it started a 28 year break from playing. So glad I got back into it, but really wish I had never left. And, yes, we're still married. And yes, she's very supportive of my guitar playing.
