Shawn's thread on the three favorite guitars that you own got me thinking. What is the one guitar you most regret selling?

So let's see 'em. Post 'em up.

From a players perpective, this one. My forthcoming PS HB2 has it's roots in this guitar.


From a collector's perspective, I probably should have kept Sig #19 (1986). But, the Sweet Switch had been drilled and I couldn't stop dwelling on it.

Honestly never owned anything worth enough to sell, but given away a few entry-level guitars to friends that were starting out. One was a really beaten up old Westone that I absolutely adored, and had also been given for free along with a keyboard amp and a couple pedals when I was starting out.

Also trying to sell a discontinued Yamaha that I'm bound to miss when it's gone, but just don't really have the space for it!

Don't have a pic...but the one that started it all, my 1992 Custom 24 with moons, sunburst. Funny story...they opened up a GC near me a few weeks ago, was talking with the studio manager, turns out he was the guy running the local small town shop that I sold it to years ago...after we were talking, he remembered me, the guitar, and the "look of death" on my face when I sold it. Small world.

You know, it's funny, I dig my 3 newly acquired Private Stocks so much, and I am so excited about the 2 in the oven, that I don't really miss any of the previous 50 (yes, 50!) or so PRSi I have gone through in the past four years. They were all part of the experience of sampling every option available to know what I like to pony up and start building my own with the awesome Private Stock team. ;)

I look back at many of them with great fondness, especially those magical Wood Library Ted's, but I don't regret selling them.

I do have a feeling that is sort of like "missing", I am anxiously (and impatiently!) awaiting these two, that I picked every piece of wood for said goodbye to, awaiting the finished product to arrive safely home! The first one should be here by Christmas, hopefully!

I miss my 20th Anniversary Singlecut that I traded for a Martin acoustic so we could play a live radio set. :(

Never got pictures but early Studio (HSS) in beautiful red 10 flamed to kill!!!! Black pickups just perfect against the red. To Sleep, per chance to dream ( about getting it back!!)

My first PRS SC. Ended up trading it for the SCT I have now but I do miss this guitar loads.

I don't really regret selling any of mine, but if I was to choose one to get back it would be the McRosie with moons and zebra Bare Knuckle Holy Divers on the left in the pic below:
