I sold a 2007 Gibson RD reissue when I needed some cash. I still miss it.

Hmmmmm.... There's very little that I've let go that I regret. However, I do remember an old SUPRO solid body with one bridge pickup that I sort of miss. It was all beat to hell and I spray painted it hospital white and the neck felt like a log. That thing had more bite than a Hot Rodded Tele in the bridge position. I was later told that the pickup was made by Rickenbacker (strings went right through the middle of it) and was old. No, wait. There was one that I miss. I bought a Fender Mustang the first year that they came out. Somebody broke into my house and stole it. I loved playing that guitar and it was the first decent guitar that I ever owned. As for accessories, a friend gave me an original Big Muff and an Electric Mistress that he found out in a vacant lot. I had to repair one of them. I've still got the Electric mistress even though I don't use it but I gave the Big Muff away. Then I found out the whole world is out there looking for both of those original pedals.

I'm a pack rat, truth be told, I wish I had all my old amps and effects! My Roland, My Musicman, all the effects, my 12 string acoustic, my first guitar a flying V...
oh well!

I had a semihollowbody guitar that I sold. Maybe it was a Maestro of Univox brand. Looked like a Gibson ES335. Sometimes I wish I still had it.

No regrets. I've sold things that I liked to acquire things I liked more. I've never owned any precious guitars or amps. I never got attached to a Squier Strat or $99 practice amp.

I will die with my Guilds! Bought both of them new. First in '81 and my second in 2014.

I had a small solid state Dean Markley amp that I really liked and wish I had kept it around for an practice/acoustic amp.

I traded in my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp for a Blues Jr. and while I like and use the Blues Jr. I liked the HRD better. It was not super big or heavy, but I wanted something smaller and lighter for dragging around to gigs and jams.

As far as guitars and efx go I always kept the ones I really liked and have no regrets about the ones I let go.

Two items, both from the early days of playing ...

A Gibson EB-3L bass - 34" scale, slotted headstock, circa 71 or so. I regretted selling that one almost immediately and still do.

A late 60's Blackface Fender Vibro Champ amp - No regrets at first, but as the years have gone by and I've watched the value of these little buggers skyrocket ... wish I still had it, so I could sell it again now! Ha!

About the only 2 items (I won't say regret for one of them, more missing) are my old Roland JC 120 and my '83 JCM 800 50 watt Lead combo.

The Roland I really regretted selling. I sold it to make way for the JCM way back in '85 which I sold last year because it hadn't been used for 3 years, so for the JCM, I guess I just miss having it around. It's like taking down a picture off the wall that's been up for years and then noticing the different paint shades.

The Roland, looking back, I really should have kept, but being the naive follower I was when younger, I went with the "in-crowd" in regards to Marshall being the "standard icon" for Classic Rock, Hard Rock and Metal music.
