    No, but I bought the Boss RC-1 Looper, then sold it to upgrade to the RC-3, then my sis and BIL gave me an RC-1 for Christmas a year or two later... which I returned to the shop.

    Only once and only because the original was stolen.

    Yeah. An OCD, Boss OD-3, Digitech Drop, Analogman KoT and Friedman BE-OD. Then I sold’em once more, except the OD-3.

    I bought a few tube screamers but I was using them a lot at the time. Since then no. I don’t really break them anymore. I treat my gear good now. Lol

    Nope. There's a reason why I let them go that generally doesn't change after the fact.

    Yep, the OCD. I owned an older one (version 1.4, I think) then sold it to buy a version 2.0 because I fell for all the marketing hype about the improved buffer, and how this was going to be the "final version, ever" (yeah, right). Wayyyyy too compressed. Sold that one too, now back in the hunt for an older one.

    All right, if we're confessing...

    I actually bought the same motorcycle twice. a 2005 Honda VFR Interceptor. Crazy, I know...

    Buying two of the same kind for a reason (2 pedal boards, different locations, gifts, stacking, etc.) doesn’t feel nearly as bad as buying, then selling, then buying the same thing again...but I’ve done that once too :confused:

    Does a circuit count? Because I’ve bought and sold about a dozen different takes on tubescreamers. I can’t get them to work for me but I keep chasing that dragon

    Just a few weeks ago I bought a mint Boss CE2 although I already have one.

    The price was too good to pass on it.

    Do amps count? I bought and sold a couple of Fender Superchamps (the Rivera ones).

    Over and over again. If it doesn't fit the current band I'm in I sell it. Then I buy it again...and again when its applicable.

    Sure have! A vintage MXR flanger. It was stolen from my house, along with other pedals totaling about 1400.00 (pill popping sub contractor working on our house), and fenced at Guitar Center. I recovered some stuff, but unfortunately not the flanger. Fast forward about a year/year and half, idly flipping through Craigslist, I’ll be goddamed if somebody didn’t have my MXR flanger for sale, 100 bucks. I met the guy who had it and bought it (again) for exactly the same price I paid for it about 10 years prior. I didn’t relay this saga to the guy until after the sale, I knew where he got it (Guitar Center) and didn’t really want to make him feel bad or seem like I was asking for something.
