Or bought the same kind of guitar again later? I figured this out today -- and I'm ashamed. I've bought back: A G&L ASAT Tribute that I made into a Bluesboy with Fralins that just didn't sound right. I needed to make peace with it. (But I traded it for a fabulous little Champ clone, and the great TGPer who bought it saved the axe's ass with a Gibson '57 in the neck, she says.) A little Canvas plank guitar that I must have had 20 different pickups in -- why? A funky poop-purple-sparkle bolt-neck Hamer doublecut that sounded surprisingly great with the mystery Japanese pickups in it, but I started modding it, made a hash of it, then sold it. Buying it back this weekend, after three years, with dreams of greatness. Guitars I've owned more than one of, for no reason: Three G&L ASATs (two of them Tribbys; current Trib excellent not quite the guitar the late-90s U.S. ASAT was). Three Ibanez AM-73 inexpensive 339-sized guitars (they mod-up nice; my third and currently only one is awaiting a neck fix and new pups after I finish my taxes). G&L S-500 Tributes (um, owned 3 over time, all were perfect and sounded identically good, just not a Strat guy. Actually, I'm mostly a crappy guitarist). Super-cheap LP Junior clones -- yeah, a few: Memphis, Xaviere, no-name. Mary Kay Tele partscasters (a couple -- the current one with Gibson P-90s in it is a keeper). That's all I can think of for now. But it's kind of embarrassing already.
