What decisions, that you either are making now or haven't made yet, do you think you will regret?

I'll start: I think I'm going to regret starting this thread.

Discuss.

Oh man. Where do I start?

1. Buying more fuzzes/ODs when I already went full circle and came back to the ones I liked a year ago.

2. Buying more mapz that cover largely the same ground as my current ones.

3. Modding guitars only to buy a replacement weeks after I killed the resale value.

4. Buying another acoustic and refusing to sell my current one.

5. Buying more modulation pedals when all I use is one chorus or flanger at a time.

I'm sure there are literally hundreds more I'll have in the next few years alone but those will be repeats of what I've done recently for the most part.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

10 years ago I sold all my guitar gear. Mesaboogie dual recto, my black 80s Gibson les Paul, my japanese fender stratocaster. Plus I gave away all my pedals to different mates - rat, boss od, dist, flange.

Bad idea.

I'm eventually going to regret having expensive taste and a love of good tone. Neither of these are a good thing for a uni student with bills to pay to have

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I am really regretting the fact that I can't use these new LEDs as a replacement to my =C= EL34s and the fact that my ceiling joists are not strong enough to support my 2x12 splawn cab.

I guess the Small Blocks are a bit heavier than I suspected and my future neighbor may not be that tolerant

I'm going to regret buying a Mid-Ranged guitar rather than saving for the guitar I want.
Also, probably buying a 5150iii mini. I keep trying to tell myself it's going to be the only amp I'll want for a long time but...

you can't ever forget that a forum is naturally going to have cliques. i personally try to limit the amount of negativity while still offering the best advice i can give.

i will be the first to admit not all my posts are constructive, but i try to do more good than bad.

Good to see you again Talon!

I wouldn't worry about it too much. This is basically a spam thread anyway that is bound to be closed. Your post, while insightful, is a tad hollow. There are tons of other threads where your thought might be more pertinent.

Again, it is just a social site. I wouldn't get too hung up on it.

UG actually isn't too bad compared to a lot of places (and also considering how big UG is).

I also find that a lot of the people posting the nastiest stuff etc. actually think they're in a clique and, er, aren't. Not that I actually want it to be cliquey- I actively don't. But you know what I mean.

I think kyle said this before, but I agree [this is paraphrased]- it's a fine line between having a community (which makes the forum better) and having a clique (which makes the forum worse).

I'm gonna say one of these days I'm gonna sell my legacy for a 5150-1-2 or3 or a single rec and regret it. I'm also gonna regret selling the gt10 but I have a feeling it's gonna happen sooner or later

I'll regret becoming a successful rockstar, who has an insane amount of children with different women, resulting in me selling all my gear to pay child support. leading me into a dark depression which causes me to go on a drug and alcohol rampage. After several years I get myself clean and start to make a successful comeback. Tragically it is cut short, as I die very young from a *insert shocking tragic event* thankfully, my many children are all quite talented and begin to dominate the worlds of music, film, arts, etc. etc. all in the name of their father.

I'll probably regret more gigs that my band plays. It always gets to me when you travel a long ass way for a gig that's been talked up, then it ends up being shitty as all hell. I still regret the gig we played with Mushroomhead a few weeks back. It just wasn't nrealy as promising as we were led to believe. That's probably just me being a skeptical douche, though.

I probably regret a comment I made in another thread about wanting a house with amps, guitars and other gear as the main decoration, due to lack of space for other decorations. I imagine that'll find some way to bite me in the ass.

Already did it, but I knew I would regret putting the Dimebucker in my current guitar. I had it lying around though and wanted to see what it'd sound like. Just gonna be more time wasted having another installed though, haha.
