My SSS sunburst Albert Lee. Still have my HH, but I miss that guitar terribly now
A fella I was connected with had it custom made then decided to let it go: HB in the bridge and Mini HB in the neck, super fat neck, brass wraptail bridge, doghair finish.
I was foolish to let it go!
ca. '69 Butterscotch Tele with a black pickguard, maple fretboard, pickups potted in paraffin by me.
Can down, Steinman
Ibanez MAC-10 D-hole Macaferri... bought it on an impulse in the 90's for about $700. Sold it when downsizing. I shouldn't have. At least I sold it to a guy who could really play Gypsy jazz. Given that there weren't a lot of them made, and looking at the details of the instrument and the location I think one that was for sale at Djangobooks a while back was my old guitar:
A ‘71 Gibson Les Paul Custom I swapped with my “small town guitar hero” rival back in ’75 for his ES-345. From what I have established from snooping about the WWW, he still has it as his main guitar so it must’ve been a good one.
Suspect a bit of judicious auto-correct or finger slippage there... (calm/can).
I don't let it go if I love it.
Still don’t get it. What’s the point of a reference so obscure? Makes me think the writer is just a babbling drunk.
James Tyler Studio Elite HD. In Malibu Beach Schmear, gloss. Such a good guitar.
So good that I still almost cry myself to sleep over letting it go. The green eyed monster in me got a great cash offer for it though and I decided to let it go. Silly, silly man.
Only guitar I regret getting rid of was an 80s MIJ Fender Tele.
A reference to the biggest hit taken from one of the highest-selling albums of all time, and Meatloaf's second highest-charting single after "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" is obscure? OK.
Sorry, I don’t listen to music like that.
Hi, I've bought and sold MANY guitars and , sadly, most of the time I regretted selling. The one I sold that hurt the most was a mid-2000 Gibson Explorer Pro. Flamed maple top, binding, abalone dots, slightly smaller that a traditional Explorer. Was a great guitar and looked so cool. Almost looked like a custom guitar. I sold to a guy who wanted to strip the finished and stain it trans-purple... never saw the final product.
A couple others that I regret selling are documented here: Hammers and Chords.
'96 ASAT. big neck, 9.5" radius. One of the best guitars I've ever touched. Sold it to buy a Guild F-50 which turned out to be a dog.
Someone here from Hawaii bought it. Hope he's still enjoying it
I have no regrets on guitars I've sold, only ones I didn't buy.
Like a premo loaded B.C. Rich Eagle Supreme USA with full electronics that I could have snatched for $2000 and another with extremely rare transparent green finish for $1600 in the early 2000s. Try finding one now even for $3500-$4000.
1972 Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty". Embossed pickups, fretless wonder. I couldn't get along with the "fretless" part so I sold it (just had it for less than 6 months). This was back around 1990.
I have a 1977 and it's got bigger frets.
Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty that my dad left me.
Everything I sold, I did for a reason. That said, there are some I wish I didn't in hindsight. When I was a kid I played a 1966 Gibson SG Standard /Maestro which I have very fond memories of. And more recently a Music Man Albert Lee HH - mint green/rosewood neck. And then there's a ....
