My 2005 Les Paul Standard and my Martin 000 - 17sm. Sold them both this past year when my wife closed her business and was unemployed.

I have yet to own an electric that I was smitten with. I keep looking.

The closest I come is passing on the chance to buy my father-in-law's Mosrite when he pawned it off years ago. I REALLY wish I had bought it.

It was THIS model. Same color and everything. It did have some scuffs and scrapes...but still.

I had an FG700S (Yamaha) with ultra low action and a beautiful pattern to the wood. I bought if for $150 and learned a lot about setting guitars up by using that guitar as a test bed before cutting, filing and sanding my $500+ guitars. I sold it for $150 to a substitute teacher at my school who says all her husband's friends who play guitar cannot believe how well it plays and its sound for the price. Also, I let my Shubb capo go with it.

I sold a pair of my nicest Les Pauls back in the mid '90s because of growing bills and such. Sometimes we have to make the tough but wise choices to stay afloat.

I'm a school teacher, so I get the month of July off every year. As kind of a hobby, I scour craigslist in the summer to find cheap but playable acoustics for students. The music teacher offers guitar classes and some of the guitars the kids learn on are nearly unplayable. The action on some is so bad you could fit your hand between the strings and the fretboard. Anyway, I picked up a couple in the past few years that I gave to serious students, but maybe I wish I hadn't . One was a Yamaha FG-04ltd, and the other was a Tacoma DM09. Both were fantastic guitars at any price. I know the students who have them play the guitars regularly, but I kinda sorta wish I still had them.

i remember when Tacomas were the rage. Haven't thought about them for awhile though.

'64 guild starfire.
'77 gibson lp special.

Oddly, I sold the '77 to the guy who originally bought it new in '77 at Talbot. He saw my ad, (I was short on cash and had half a dozen higher priced guitars for sale to sell any 2) and asked about an impression on the 12th fret's side that was not pictured. He offered a good price and I couldn't say no. The guild I traded for an amp that was worth more than the guitar, and in both instances I made a smart decision, but I still miss those guitars.

I almost sold my SLO to buy my house. My wife wouldn't let me.

A bunch of them...

I can think of at least 3 USA Strats that I've traded or sold. A Gibson SG Standard. A really cool Gibson Les Paul Studio, that had an ebony fingerboard (most Studios come w/rosewood.) and trapezoid inlays instead of dots..
3 different Charvels. A USA Jackson Randy Rhoads (that I still kick myself for selling.) And finally, a PRS Singlecut, which I traded for a Splawn Quickrod. I love the amp, but still miss that guitar.

Oh well, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, right?

Orange Les paul standard faded, or a prs strat style I got On clearance at gc dallas for 900. I had a firebird for about 3 days that never even got plugged in. It's sad to think of the guitars I've had that I didn't appreciate. Now I have a mexi strat and just got gifted a 60's gretsch corvette that I'm going to hotrod

My guitars were not sold but rather stolen from me. One was a Memphis Les Paul copy in black with a burn mark on the front where I tried to set it on fire (I was young and stupid and it was a $50 guitar) and my first guitar ever, a graduation present from my mom, a Yamaha FG 360. I'd sell any of the guitars I have now to get either one back especially with the case I had the FG in. It had all the stickers on it from my favorite Christian bands and, I think, looked pretty boss.

Ibanez PR1550, I owned 3 or 4 guitars at the time and needed to raise a little cash for our wedding, I knew that one would sell the quickest so it was done (also sold off the bulk of my pedal board) Everything about that guitar was great but My wedding was a great day and my Wife is pretty awesome, I have never seen another Pro Line series guitar since I sold that one

My wife surprised me years ago with a white 1987 Les Paul Standard with beige binding. I had to sell it around 2008 to cover some bills. Wish I had it back as it saddened me that I had to sell it.
