    I felt like a dirty old man watching that. How much do they usually go for used?

    One of my older CE-24's. And if money was of no issue, I'd totally get a 24 fret singlecut trem to my specs and preferences, since any off-the-rack build so far automatically is a private stock build last I checked.

    I hesitated just a little too long on a Graveyard 2...those were amazing, gone in a heartbeat, and I still haven’t seen any up for sale used.

    There’s another model I covet...but I may have an opportunity to correct that soon.

    I also wish I bought another of the early core Angelus customs...spectacular guitars.

    1. I watched a brand new DGT standard with moons for 1600pounds at peach guitars for weeks, now DGTs are double the price in uk, and this was only a few years ago
    2. any model from that line of reclaimed woods

    I am happy with my lot, but these are 2 no brainers I missed

    There are certain things I sometimes wished I had not sold but that has gotten me to where I am with my gear today. I am VERY HAPPY with my current line up of gear!

    Like, $600-700 for the silver ones, I believe they were $1100 or around that new.

    Don’t know if I could do that... I would totally get a silver/mirror pick guard made for it though.

    Paul Newman's looks and Cary Grant's manner. I was close but no cigar .... well, no I wasn't.

    And a Paisley HXDA with brown wood flame and a matching 2x12 cabinet.

    Oh, can I add not being a bigger brat to my parents, and not begging them to buy a guitar from the dude in downtown Annapolis in 1984?

    That Golden Eagle of Markie’s.
    Every perny-necked guitar of Markie’s
    Especially that DGT with the perny neck. :oops:

    Otherwise, you can’t have seller’s remorse if you don’t sell anything. :D

    The one I’ve thought most about missing out on, was a core Mira flametop that my buddies store had for over a year. I REALLY wanted a fixed bridge PRS since all mine are trems. I walked in one time and it was on sale for $1299. I wanted it BAD. I left the store without it, then I stupidly thought that, if I can get that beauty for that much, I can get a regular one without the flame top for close to a grand. I thought about it, decided I had to have the one at the store. It played and sounded GREAT! The next time we went back (4 weeks later) the guitar was gone. When I asked, he said some other guy that came in the same weekend I did saw the sale price and came back a week later and bought it.

    I immediately started looking for a used one like it. Could hardly find any, and nowhere close to that price.

    The only other one I really sort of regret is another one I talked myself out of. The reclaimed wood series Vela. Loved everything about it... except the Tele bridge. I’ve thought more than once that I should have reconsidered and bought one.

    Not to rub salt in the wound, but the PRS version of the Tele bridge is some of their finest innovation. Everything I hate about an ashtray bridge is gone...stamped base with sharp edges, height adjustment screws with sharp edges, crappy materials. It’s made economically but preserves the design uniqueness that makes it a Tele bridge. Oh, and my intonation is spot-on and hasn’t wavered since I bought it...said no one with a Tele, ever!

    Highly, highly recommended.
