    Sigh. Sold my '64 Precision for $675, back in the early '80's. I more than doubled my original investment, and thought I was a financial genius...

    A friend of mine sold a white 1961 Les Paul (SG Style) in the early 80s for $400. Its worth about $7,000 today.

    I try not to think about the basses I sold years ago.

    I'd love to own one, but the logistics of it make it not happen.

    My biggest hurdle is that to me, EVERY bass is a player. If I've gotta just look at it because its too old or too fragile, it's not for me.

    I still shudder when I think of the lawsuit era Ibanez guitar that I traded for my first bass (a plywood junker).
