    No, but there's two I will buy back if I ever run across them.
    I check ebay, reverb, Google images etc periodically.

    What is this horse sh*t you speak of? Selling a guitar is a sin. Regret and other thing come with it. Never sell a guitar. Never. :confused::confused:dunno:barf:barf:barf:barf

    Heritage H-150CM. Sold it, bought it back from the same guy about 5 years later. Sold it again a few years after that.

    Should have held on to it. Would not mind getting that one back!

    I'm on my 3rd Peavey Wolfgang. First was a Special EXP, second was a USA Special flametop (shoulda kept it), and 3rd is a USA Standard.

    Now getting the ACTUAL guitar back, I bought my Ibanez bass back from my cousin in September/October. One of the easiest playing ones EVER.

    My main guitar for years now has been my 1966-67 Kapa Continental. Got it in '09 and absolutely loved it. Anyways, I was learning a song to play for my mom on it... She passed and never got to hear it. It ended up making me sad every time I looked at it, and so I ended up selling it to a fellow TGP'er. A few years later (around 2014-15), I decided I really missed it and began looking for one similar online... That's when I saw where the same person I sold it to had just (not 24 hours before) listed it for sale on here after having gigged it through NY for 3-4 years. Came back all nice and set-up... Now I find I gravitate towards it, and play it whenever I get the chance. Will not be getting rid of it again ;)

    I sold a G&L legacy back to the guy who sold it to me after about 2 years. Via Reverb.

    Question is, who hasn't? Not only have I bought and sold and rebought the same model/color guitar... I've bought, sold, rebought and sold again the same exact serial number guitar (G&L S-500).

    In that past year I bought back 2 Lentg guitars I foolishly sold. I am very happy to have them back. It was for money to buy a Stevens guitar, which I now have. So it was for a good reason.

    Yep. Schecter C-1 Exotic, case-in-point. I sold it to my brother because I thought it was too heavy, but later I started playing bass in bands which renders that point moot because basses are even heavier instruments. Anyway.... a seriously underrated guitar they only sold for like 2 years. Legit flame maple top (not veneer), ebony fretboard, stainless steel frets. I think they sold for over $1,000 new but used you can find them used for cheaper than that. It's a super great guitar for the money.

    Yes, I've purchased the same model/color more times then I care to admit, often trying for the same year. In a couple of instances, I bought my previously owed guitar back. This is partially due to my financial situation and partially my belief that having one exemplary instrument is better then several so-so instruments: if want a Tele for example, the Gretsch has to go. Once I get the Tele (or 175 or Les Paul or Jazzmaster) out of my system, I'll go back to a Gretsch.

    My first Tele! I really didn't have a need for a Tele but had always wanted one! Bought it and while I liked it, it wasn't right for any band I was playing with so I sold it! When I joined another band that I thought would be a good fit for a Tele I bought another and never looked back!

    I'm just glad I'm not the only one, lol. I've ordered something here lately from Musicians Friend (it's been back ordered), and canceled and reordered a few times. I know they hate me. But they do have the PRS SE Custom 24 Limited Edition one on sale, looks nice, but not sure if the cherry burst might be a bit much.

    Not yet but as soon as I see a certain Tele I let go of a few years ago I'm going to grab it. The same model anyway.

    Just happened to me this week. Had the chance to re-acquire a beautiful Sandberg California PJ relic that I traded away several years ago. Swapped it straight up for a guitar I wasn’t using and I’m delighted. It’s like having an old friend back.
