Does anyone else out there find it really hard to let go of a guitar?

I sold a mediocre guitar so that I could get something with a locking trem on it. I love my new guitar, but I saw my old guitar in the store, and I started to feel sad.

Lately I've been almost obsessed with getting it back. Luckily, its not something super rare, so I don't think its going to fly off of the shelf, but if it does...its going to really bother me.

Am I insane? I'm willing to pay an extra 50 bucks than what I got for it, just to get it back.

Does anyone else get this attached to their instruments?

Life sucks.

I could never sell one of my guitars. Never....

Now if only my family understood that having a guitar isn't just some investment that you can fling around to get deals on others. They really become a part of you

I do. My Squire is an absolute piece of ****......but it's my first piece of ****. My other guitars just have something significant about them and I wouldn't sell them. I'm up to 4, and am wondering how it's gonna go once I get up to 6 or 7, and am out of room.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

I'd generally agree with that.

However, sometimes... there are some guitars which just don't grow on ya.

One thing though... a first guitar is like a first love. You never really forget about it.

I haven't actually sold a guitar but I know that if I do I will regret so just don't sell them

I sold my first guitar, an epi sg special. I don't miss it at all. That's probably because the money went right in to making my rig a whole lot bettter. My MK is amazing though. but I was thinking for a while of trading a guy for his neckthrough Ibanez. He had thrown in some emgs and added an 18v mod. I ended up deciding I'd miss the MK way too much and decided to keep it and just save up for a nicer guitar.

I buy an sell guitars like I change socks and I have had several go thru my hands I regret selling but there is always another to come thru that I will actually keep. I try and not get attached to a guitar because if not I wouldn't make any money and I would need a warehouse to hold them all. As it is I have about 70 guitars I am keeping that has taken over my living room!

I had an Epiphone SG Custom Alpine White with EMG's. Sold it because the neck dive on the guitar was so annoying and the guitar needed just a touch of fretwork to remove excessive buzzing. I havent missed it one bit.....I missed my starter Ibanez that I gave away to my brother in law more than the SG.

i had a cheap fender starcaster...and i'm wishing i had it, i gave it to guitar center, got like $10 buck's for it or something....the bridge didn't work right so it didn't have a 1st string, and it sounded bad but i should have just kept it and hung in on the wall, it looked good
