I sold my old Boss GX700 a couple of years ago and there's tones I used to get out of that I've never been able to recreate.



What stuff have others sold and regretted over the years
#2
Epiphone Les Paul ultra. SOLID guitar. Sold it to buy a Gibson LP studio, and have been disappointed with it ever since. The Epi sounded and played better right out of the box, at half the price. That's my only piece of gear that I have seller's remorse over.

I regret selling my Boss ME-50.

Wait, no I don't.

My Steinberger. One of the old ones with the carbon fibre/graphite necks and maple body. Absolutely awesome gigging guitar. But I didn't part with that on purpose, some ****er stole it.

Damn, that sucks man. If my Carvin ever got stolen I think I'd spend the next 5 years saving my money, then hire seal team 6 to track the f*cker down.

My Takamine EG523SC Acoustic. Such a lovely guitar. And it was signed by Tommy Emmanuel. Apart from that, I don't miss anything else. I've always sold gear to fund an upgrade and the gear I have now is absolutely perfect for what I play so I'm happy.
#8
I often regret selling the gear I had really early on... I know I would have sold it to upgrade but I always kinda wished I kept a few bits and pieces from way back when.
Every now and then someone will dust off an old squire or something from the back of a closet and say, with pride, 'this was my first guitar'...
Im getting too sentimental.

Gibson SG faded
Boss DD-7

I mean, with the money i got from selling these I was able to get stuff I needed more, so I don't necessarily regret it, but I've found myself wishing I had them lately.
#11
My bugera, actually. I had that thing sounding so sweet by the time I got rid of it, but it was a necessary progression. That amp had swag, cheaply built or not.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.
#12
Line 6 Spider... HAHAHA JK. My first acoustic guitar. Piece of shit First Act. Still though. First guitar man. Glad I sold that spider though...
#14
I also gave a bust up old BC Rich Bich to a guitar charity - I kinda regret it but hopefully someone somewhere got some enjoyment out of it.

My first ever instrument was an old semi-acoustic bass that I bought for £40 and sold years later for the same amount - I should have kept that just for sentimental reasons

In 1980, I had a Music Man tube amp that was 800 bucks, cant remember the model.

and an Aria Pro Les Paul type guitar.

I left my home in Michigan, to go to Devry (Ohio Tech then), and when returning home, my guitar and amp were gone. My mom got remarried, and the word is they had a big garage sale, and it might have got sold there...

Some stuff went into storage, so they still might turn up some day??

My mom now is old, has alzheimer's, and cant remember a thing about my missing gear.

Wish I had it back.
#25
Here's one. I don't know what happened to it tbh. It could have been stolen, lost, given away, swapped for certain substances, I just can't remember. What it was was a crappy Gorilla practice amp. 8" speaker I think. If I had it today I could build a Champ or AC4 or something into it. Wouldn't that be hilarious? Turn on the cheap crappy practice amp and churn out some sweet tones.

Those old H's are just awesome. My H-301 kicks the shit out of my MH-400 in every way. I'm never gonna get rid of it (while my MH is on Craigs List as we speak )

Anyway... I don't think I really miss anything I've sold. Sometimes I miss my ValveKing, but I'm not sure why.

My Micro Pog. Because I ended up bying a new one, again. Now I'm thinking of selling it... again.

every now and then i wish i didn't ditch my fender blues reissue just because it was my only 1x12 and once you start having to lug around 2x12s the joke is on you. also i kinda wish i didn't get rid of my ds-1 pedal, it was never my favorite but i've been wanting to mod my own pedal and that would have been a nice guinea pig considering i really didn't care for it anyways.

I would recommend the marshal MG100

Very versatile and quality sound. It should treat you well

My Marshall G80RCD Combo amp. Even though it was solid state, I loved it and it was a helluva lot better than the MGDFX series that came out later.

It was a parts guitar. When I bought it I was told it was warmoth,, but it wasnt. I never did find out.

My Engl SE and Savage 120 amps... Which is why I bought replacements.

If you get something that works for you... Keep it.

Lots of stuff but I'm done with all regret except for a recent one. This past winter I sold my original E-H Big Muff Pi Ram's Head pedal for $600. I was attracted to the $ and wanted to sell it while it still working perfectly. Knew I would miss it so immediately bought a clone - a used BYOC Large Beaver built by a pro for $90. The Beaver doesn’t quite nail the tone of my old friend but is more versatile.

Gah! Too many memories. First guitar I ever learned on was a homemade acoustic that a mate's grandfather made for him and he lent to me, so obviously that went back to him, no great loss. My first guitar that I actually owned was a shitty electric that got passed from kid to kid in our school. I moved it on to a friend of my younger brother's and don't miss it at all.

But then we're onto the good stuff. I miss my Marlin Loner - a great "second guitar" that really helped me to exploit my developing metal skills (not a style I play anymore). I miss my 2x12 Carlsbro Scorpion amplifier (purchased from a girl at school) - they're quite well sought-after now.

Kinda wish I still had my candy pink BC Rich Bich - a decent stage guitar.

Happy with the kit I've got now though - the SG through lil Junior just sounds so sweet...

My one piece of gear that I've gotten rid of that really kills me is my G&L ASAT.

I got rid of it because it produced a sound that I thought wasn't "me," in retrospect, those hot, jangly and silky pickups were absolutely perfect for my sound. I just didn't realize it, at the time. I actually pawned it for about $200, which is heartbreaking.
That thing was absolutely the most perfect guitar I've ever owned.... now, I'm sad.
