    Sounds like an accident waiting to happen.
    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    Well, neither of them are that type of person, but I ditched my ex 8 years ago, so I am guessing she still has issues!

    I can relate to that, I'm on a new relationship for 8 years now, but when I and my ex (we were together for 15 years) cross paths on social functions, she keeps acting weird, and I was conveyed the information that she still hasn't sorted things out for herself yet.

    Tough break, my current wife makes me infinitely happier than I ever was. And this one enjoys me playing guitar, so....

    My '08 Gibson LP Standard in desert burst. I had it for a short time and never really gave it a proper chance, thinking Les Pauls were supposed to be heavy. It sounded good, though.

    Nine years later, my bad back would be very appreciative of the weight relief.

    only a few i really miss but the all gold 1998 gibson r6 that was super light sticks out as the big one that i wish i had back. 8lbs on the nose, huge comfy neck and two p90's. the two pups were too imbalanced and i needed the money

    The only one I really miss is #49 from the first run of Charvel San Dimas 25th Anniversary reissues. It played great and sounded just unreal; chime-y like a good ES-335. Not having a neck pickup bugged me at the time, but I think I could appreciate it for what it is now. I sold it to pay a bunch of bills, so there wasn't a huge amount of choice involved.

    This wasn't mine, but they all looked like this:

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    I miss a Tele Aerodyne. MIJ, looked awesome, played and sounded great. I had to sell it because I was moving.



    More recently, and this is stupid, a Godin Session. For some reason it worked really well for me. I think it may have been the basswood body that is supposed to be “worse”. It was the first tile I tried a hybrid and loved it.

    G&L Tribute Superhawk. A damn near perfect Superstrat. Played like butter, sounded like a sledgehammer and was as simple as a guitar can aspire to be.
    It had a combination of things you don't find that often: Maple body, ebony fretboard, custom wound pickups, a thin neck that somehow didn't feel tiny or flimsy.

    I'll buy another one eventually.

    I've sold an Ibanez SZ, an Epiphone 339 Pro, a few Jacksons, a MIJ Ibanez Prestige but the G&L is the one that hurts the most to be honest.

    I've never been either so desperate nor so foolish to have ever sold a guitar that I shouldn't have.

    I had a custom shop ESP DV8 that cost me.. well . A lot. and I sold it for less than half what I paid for it, when times were tough a couple years ago. It was a magnificent instrument and I still kick myself. Could've swallowed my pride and borrowed some money instead

    Squier Bullet. This was really neat to play on. Can't remember if I sold or traded this one.

    Thankfully never been in that situation.

    I've only ever parted with two guitars, one was a Cort that I did like but don't miss and the other was a Washburn MG100 which I do miss but that traded for an ESP Horizon that has become my new no.1-ish because of how light it is.

    A yamaha sg. serial number dated it to 1984 'sold in japan'.. i guess there's a difference between what's made in japan and sold for the USA. Anyways, I have no idea what model it was, it had non split-diamond inlays but some ornate stuff I haven't seen on any guitar. I sold it to a friends brother and as far as I know, he still has it and won't part with it. For good reason. everything was stock on it except for the tuning machines I replaced with full size grovers.

    Ah yes, I also sold my Aged Honey Burst ESP Eclipse to put a down payment on a car to get me to a job that was far away. The car turned out to be a lemon piece of crap and the job sucked. >_<
