I think he/she is referring to something not related to guitars.

My flanger, mainly due to the price.
My bass, only because I thought I wanted a six string.
My Muff, because I could've gotten the metal or russian.
Some candy at the store, because I could've saved the money for a wah.

Pretty much everything I've ever bought, I've regretted at least a bit, but usually ended up being content with the purchase.

As far as gear... my old Crate 30 watt. It was my first real amp, but looking back on it, I could have spent the $250 on something a lot better.

As far as life in general... my sandisk mp3 player. Once your out of school, you don't really use an mp3 player that much.

A drummer... just kidding, wish I never did make a band with a drummer, hes a complete self insolent freak. His mom dosen't appreciate the guitar thing... when I finally got my amp to sound over his drums his mom told us to quiet down. That pis''sed me off. But a real purchase? Probably a Boss Super Overdrive Pedal SD-1. box o crap. I later got a much cheaper DOD Overdrive Preamp/250 reissue, which kicks butt for half the price.

Anyway, I also regret most of my paintball gear. $350 on a marker+hopper that I've only used twice in the past year...

if u think trivium sucks....please dont come to las vegas haha
but no, it was definately the guitar....u dont just randomly see
your unplayed high E string snap while playing 3rd and 5th strings chords....

besides...you really cant say they suck....if they sucked they wouldnt be as big as they are in only a few years....seeing as their 1st album got signed when Heafy and Smith were 13yr old kids.....that takes EXTREME talent...and NON-suckage lol

you get bigger then trivium when your 13years old and then you can tell me they suck...otherwise your just another metal hater...

He is in the wrong saying that Trvium sucks, but please try to not get a flamewar going.

And Trivium are supposedly metalcore/hardcore.

How did fall out boy, greenday, and Weezer get so popular so quick?

and I dont mean that the guitarists suck, I just think the band over all sucks. Ever listen to the lyrics? they make absoutley no sense! and plus the lead singers voice makes him seem like hes trying too hard.

fun thing was talkin shit to the nerds who play it all day haha and jumping on people...
or go dancing around naked haha

hmm, regret getting an N64 (never play it)
#35
Yep,my paintball stuff.I went with a friend for about a year or so and bought stuff here and there then took the mandatory winter break.After break i dint have it in me to play anymore.Plus i got sick of the little kids(13 yearolds)useing there daddys $1000+ guns and bragging like they are badass cause of it.

F.O.B. got big fast because the bassist wrote a threating note about commiting suicide unless he recieved fame..... thus, FOB came to be famous..... ****in douchebag cheaters....

Greenday turned to the Punkish genre with the 'American Idiot' album
giving them the edge with the popularity of the genre in 04-05

Weezer....wtf are u talking about....Weezer isnt that big....


I realize that Trivium's words dont make sense....but then again, do any metal words make sense? Not really.... its just music....dont take it so literally...just enjoy the sounds
and the singer trys hard because the band lives for the band....and he's only like 20 now.... no older the 20, no younger then 19.... he's gone really far....he's even got his own custom razorback which costs more then ****in tribute dimebag razorz..... 6k+ for the Heafy white gold razor
you CANT tell me that aint cool to have an expensive signature razor that Dean thinks should cost that much


more regrets i remember

buying 3 xbox 360headsets....they all broke lol

how can you have buyer's regret over a c.d.? they're not that expensive.
seriously, there is a lot of filler on that c.d., but there are good tracks too.
