    For me it was a 77 Fender Jazz bass, a 97 Warwick Streamer LX, and a Westone Super Headless. I really miss the Fender and the Warwick because of the unique tones, and the Westone Headless b/c you don't see many of them. Tell us what's on your regret list :crying:
  2. A white BC Rich Warlock that I had in high school.

  10. A classical acoustic I sold for $5 because I didn't play guitar ( stupid,stupid,stupid!!).
    Zon sonus custom during my internship in Connecticut so I could pay rentt
    Warwick Thumb BO Broad neck. Had a massive neck but sounded sooooo good.
    My soul to the Devil..... Really thought I'd be better than I am by now. At least I didn't sell it to learn to play guitar.

    roscoe beck 5, and a godin acoustic made of cherry wood...
  12. I never sold anything that was particularly valuble or important, but I vowed never to sell any of my musical gear again when I went several up to a full year without a fretted bass (although my fretless intonation really developed during that time) !
  13. Nothing.

    Lately I have regretted buying most of it in the first place.
  14. A Kawai F2B bass. It was a slap & tap delight back in the days when many were retarded over slapping & tapping (the early to mid 90's). I sold it in 2000 to get my first 5 string. I'm a confirmed 5er for life now, but once in a while, I miss ripping on that 4. That & my old 808 TubeScreamer which was just pure evil w/the Kawai.

    Of bass gear, a 1969 Ovation Magnum 1 and an Eden WT400.

    I also sold all of my vintage analog synth gear for super cheap in the early 90's when nobody wanted it and Ebay hadn't hit its stride yet. Around 2000/2001 I could have sold that stuff for gazillions.

    I really regret selling a Fender MIM Precision Special I had. It played better than any other Fender I have put my hands on.

    MIJ Foto Flame P-bass, 1994. Didn't miss it for months, but now I'm craving a real vintage rosewood fretboard P tone again. This had it in spades.
