I will never sell my Peter Elias hand made bass SN 027.
I have owned it for about 39 years.

A few years ago, I teched Micky Rooney (rip) and his band.
Part of the deal was....we supply a fretted four string bass.
The bass player, an LA heavyweight played it for about a minute and then said..."how much?"
I said "not for sale"
I will sell any other gear I own for the right price, but #027 will never be on the market.
Guess I should post some pictures.
cheers

I have two guitars that I'll never sell.

This surf green CS Stratocaster. It is magic. I've had generous offers for it.

And this Gibson CR8 Les Paul.

The original owner tried to buy it back from me for more than I paid. It's a gem.

Nope, but a few would require an unreasonable pay off.

As I’ve gotten older there are many things that I thought I’d never sell but lately have been thinking about letting go. I guess it’s all about “downsizing”.

Everything is replaceable and therefore does have a price. But I do get the point. I have also been thinking of downsizing.

I would probably keep 2 or 3 guitars and amps and maybe about 8 pedals. The rest of the stuff is nice but spends more time in the closet.

I'd keep the 52 Tele RI and the Am Std Strat and a LP along with the Deluxe Reverb and Pro Reverb and the Twin.

The rest of it can be sold or I can ship it to my kids.

"All my stuff has a price. They are just tools."

Me too... I mean, I also, am just a tool ;^P


I own nothing remotely vintagey or of great sentimental value.

Plus, what my stuff is worth to me and what someone else would pay for, is always a vast discrepancy.

Unless the buyer was mentally defective, I can't imagine anyone offering me an inflated price for anything I own.

I don’t know if I have any gear that I wouldn’t part with, at some point.

63 white and gold SG Custom. Mine till I die. I didn't play it for about 15 years due to the frets being completely gone. I struggled with the decision to re-fret it for a couple years due to the hit in value it would take as a collectible. I'm really glad I decided to fix it. The first time I played it afterword I kinda teared up. It felt and sounded so good to me. It's the guitar I learned to play well on. Spent oodles of cumulative years with that thing either around my neck or in my lap.

Any price....I have to honestly say, no, there is nothing I own that is considered "priceless", but I have a couple of items that would be really hard to give up.

My 1962 Gibson B-25 acoustic. Sweet-sounding and the easiest-playing acoustic I've ever laid my hands on. Had it since I was in high school and to say we've been through a lot together would be an understatement.

Everything I own is for sale, at the right price...except my lovely wife and my grandsons.

My two son's are on their own if a buyer came along.....

Yeah, I got a few, my first bass, a Christmas present 1965, its not worth anything to anyone else. Though Chuck Rainey told me differently. My first Fender, and real bass, the 1980 P-Special I purchased in 1980. The old 65 Framus was a POS, until a couple years back when I put it on the bench for a cleaning and check out. I found problems with it that should have been taken care off back in the 60s. All those years I played it with the bridge 3/4” off. Even had a guitar tech in Pittsburgh tell me nothing could be done.

My first home build, The fretless Cuban. The Martin 00-15 which anbushded me at a Sam Ash and has the best tone of any guitar I’ve ever heard.

Others I would have to pull the aftermarket parts off of, nobody wants a Squire Affinity Bronco at $600.00 (tuners, pots, bridge and Bi-sonic pup), I kept the stock parts just incase. “o)

I don't think I would ever part with my '79 Flying Vee, it was my only electric until about the mid 80's, or my '83 Martin 12 string which was a birthday present to myself.

I never play either of them :-(

I wouldn't sell my '68 Tele w/B-bender unless Joe Walsh wanted to buy it. Then, I'd consider.
