Re: Sellers remorse (reply)
For a whole lot of guitars it gets easier, for me there are 2 that will forever haunt my dreams, a '51 Gib SJ and a '67 Gib J45, I tracked the J45 for almost 25 years until I lost the scent, apparently the guy died and didn't pass it on...

Does it ever get any easier?No.  I stopped selling any of my guitars because of it.  I can buy a guitar with the intentions of selling it...that one never really becomes "mine" and I never really regret selling it.  But anything I buy...
