Gear You Wish You Never Bought or Sold

So with the exception of gear which you buy as a beginner and upgrade eg roland cube, which gear do you wish you never bought, or sold.

Most pedals ive bought always gathered dust, wont buy another except an od to smooth an amp.

Bought an SA ibanez with 2 inputs w piezo etc. You see SA axes on craigslist all the time now i know why because they arent great.

Wish I never sold my dads old Sunn Concert Lead. It wasn't the sound I was going for at all, but that amp was a part of my dads history and even though he was fine with it, I still feel bad to this day. Wish I was still in contact with the guy, I'd try and buy it back

Don't think I've had a single piece of gear I regret buying, really

I've been lucky with my gear; I really don't regret anything. It's all served its purpose and I've apparently made good choices. I do have a pair of those flap-top bins full of pedals, and they're packed tight. Some of them are now "vintage" and worth some bucks. I mostly run with whatever's in a Pod these days, but I've got my eye on a Torpedo C.A.B. (I've borrowed one for a bit, now, and like it) to augment it. There are also a couple of Wamper Pedals that are just bang on the money.

Stuff I wish I'd never bought:
Some crappy little old practice amp that my 13-year-old self thought was Real t00bzzzz! but was actually anything but and stopped working after about a month. Only cost me like 50 though and I managed to sell the speaker.
Another similarly crappy little bass amp which I might as well have not bothered buying and could have got a better first bass with the money.
Dunlop GCB95 Wah pedal. It was an ok wah, but I spent way too much money on it. Could have got a far better pedal for less money online.
Rocktron boost pedal. POS cost me 40 and didn't even work.
The guitar I built with a body and neck that cost me like 100 on eBay, then found out it was some guitar I could have bought for 50 including hardware...

Stuff I wished I'd never sold:
Markbass 210 bass cab. There was no point in me selling it. I ended up building another bass cab that I thought might save me money but actually cost me about the same, and it isn't as good.
Without a doubt, my ESP LTD F400FM. I missed that guitar so much, I actually bought another one!

I should have bought more picks that time to the music store, and I should have not modded my amp.

Well there's also this MG30FX thing, but I sold it for 10 less than what I paid for it after 3 years or so of use, so it's not even that bad.
I should replace a couple caps back to the stock values in my amp now...

The reason I don't regret buying and selling stuff though is that the only things I sold I sold them because I bought them just to make money selling them, or because they had "MG30FX" written on them, and I have not spent lotsa money in guitar gear.
Something like 600 in my entire life if you subtract what I gained selling guitar gear.

No shit.

I don't know how they made them back in the day, but the Crybaby wahs they make now are insanely overrated. They're not the absolute worst I've ever heard, but they're really not that great.

Also, I think it's funny how everyone tries to claim Jimi's sound was a Crybaby just because he happened to use one occasionally, when in fact, it was a Vox, which are far better wah pedals.

Stuff I wish I never sold:
ESP GL MIJ sig
Bogner Shiva w/ KT88s
Bogner Goldfinger
EVH 5150III
Marshall Silver Jubilee
Marshall original DSL
An old knockoff strat I grew up playing so I could profile the neck.

Stuff I wish I never bought:
Marshall SLP reissue
Titanium Floyd
Any Krank I've owned.
Any Dean I've bought from 07-11
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Although the Floyd made up its worth. I ended up selling the titanium block (had crappy sustain compared to the big brass) for an ABSURD price compared to what Floyd sells them for right now, so I guess I got that money back. Replaced it with a stone big block. The titanium Floyd certainly is amazing, though, most stable Floyd since their old German ones. I have it in the recess of a custom Koa Suhr Modern with a Pau Ferro neck and board. Amazing sounding guitar.

I'll just post a few pics of rigs that I've sold and that I really shouldn't have.





That is just a few that I had on hand. I miss that stuff a lot.

Wish I'd never sold:
Carvin xv212. One of the most underrated amps out there IMO. Beautiful cleans in channel one, hot rodded marshal in channel two.

Fender FMT tele: loved the guitar but I have a messed up wrist and need thinner necks most of the time to keep my left hand from losing all sensation within five minutes of playing.

Wish I'd never bought:
That damn dog that pissd all over my pedal board three years ago.

I don't really have anything I regret buying. I loved my Gibson before it broke (for the fourth time, decided it wasn't worth fixing up again), my Fender is amazing (a few minor complaints, but I got it used and it does more than what I wanted it to), and my pedals all served me in their own way. My amp I especially like, it does pretty much exactly what I want it to.
I do regret selling my classical guitar, it was a beauty.
