    Early - mid 60s blonde/maple tele
    Mid 60s Red/RW tele
    1955 Les Paul TV model

    owned a number of other fine 60s guitars and amps but the above are ones I'd prefer to still have today.

    A 1976 Fender Mustang Bass. I sold because I had purchased a Precision bass and a friend's brother really insisted on buying the Mustang. As I am a guitar player I let it go, one bass was enough. I regret the easy short scale neck and low weight.

    I also had an AP-7 that I traded away back in '78 which I always regretted but a company called Warm Audio has release an exact copy of the circuit with their Jet Phaser . I am so tempted to buy it though I don't know if I would use it enough.

    Ugh. Why doesn't the forum let one edit old posts when the photos have crashed?

    Here's the missing one above, the "porch" shot:

    I had this terrific 1973 Olympic white Fender Strat which was just light as a feather and sounded so full and strong.

    And I owned a mid eighties Fender Japan strat which had the nicest feeling neck ever.

    I kick myself for letting those go.

    All of it! Picking just one especially missed guitar and amp from a long list tho, would be ...

    '71 Tele that I re-finned and was my only guitar for a very long time.

    '68 Super Reverb, sounded sooo nice but I don't miss lugging the thing around one bit!

    1970s era Tele bass & a 1966 Hofner Club bass : both because of their value today

    1978 Fender Vibro Champ but I still have my 1967 Vibro Champ so I am OK in that size of amp department

    1976 Deluxe Reverb

    7.5 lb. blonde ash Fender Baja Tele, because they don't make em anymore

    2008 Fender Custom Shop Nocaster in violin burst

    A 2000s era Gibson VOS double cut LP special in TV yellow (looked kind of muted green to me though)

    An early 2000s Gibson LP Special Plus: rare model in Transamber finish that weighed only 7.5 lbs.

    A 2008 or 09 Fender Roadworn 50s Tele in butterscotch. Swamp ash and only weighed about 7 lbs. Had a 4 way switch and Twang King pups and brass saddles.

    Possibly regret selling my Gibson ES 339, more because I sold it too cheaply

    I’ll add my late 80’s G&L SC-3 (tobacco) Sunburst with matching headstock gold script lettering… such a high quality little strat

    I am sorry I sold my 1966 Deluxe Reverb and the Guild dreadnought my wife bought for me in the 80s.
