    I just found my beloved and very missed old Mellotron on reverb.com yesterday:

    Mellotron M400 1976 White | Reverb

    I stupidly sold her for only $300 back in 1986 because I was convinced that digital sampling had totally superseded it (plus we needed the space for a new room for our growing family). Now it's going for $5,800!

    Seeing it there was like going to a party with one of your old girlfriends there and she still looks hot. You know the feeling....oh well maybe it's time to spring for a Mellotron 4000D as a consolation. They go for only $2750 and they sound exactly the same but with infinite sounds. The physically smaller models go for even less.

    Nope, haven't sold much gear over the years. Nothing I have sold is anything I'd want back anyway.

    I have nothing to disclose at this time.
    In the Summer of 1981 I hocked my Yamaha FIFTY 115B at a pawn shop for books for college.
    I intended on getting it back, but never had the $$$ as a student. I transfered away the next spring semester.

    I found it on eBay recently.
    I was very tempted to go get it....but I did not.

    I know this is mine from the dented cone and the damping removed from the ports...
    I will NEVER forget that.
    Pawned in June 1981...surfaces almost 35 years later.

    I'm cool with this.

    I haven't had that happen--but I once had someone use a picture of my classical guitar I had posted online as part of their ad on Kijiji.

    I could tell by the serial number, plus it was clear from pictures it had all the modifications I had added to it by their US distributor at the time.

    If, that's IF, I ever sold one of my guitars, I'd be able to tell.
    When I bought my Mustang the store had a second one with an odd brown finish--I have seen it at stores a couple of times since--so it's had at least 4 owners. But I recognize it (There was a mod done that is obvious.)
