A 62’ that I traded an old Yamaha CM-30 (not sure model number) synth and some cash to the owner of the music store I worked. I begged him to sell me that guitar until he caved. The caveat was if I sold it, he would get ‘first right of refusal’. I sold it to him because I started to collect tiny little dependent mouths to feed and we were very poor. He told he years later he sold it at a NAMM show to Mark Knopfler for a bunch of money and had a picture of them smiling holding up the guitar. I suspect Mark traded it or sold it shortly after because I have never seen it listed in the equipment list on his site. I miss that guitar but I would rather have a strat (Warmoth) I had stolen out of my car during a load-out in 98’. That one still hurts. Adding insult to injury I saw that even the old synths are worth a fortune these day lol.
just saw that I have already replied this thread. I’m old and feeble and forgetful and old….
No. I've sold 6 Strats that I can recall and never did so out of need for money and always knew why I was selling them. One was a parts-caster I put together and traded for a Tascam 80-8 8-channel reel to reel deck that I still have. A couple of years ago I finally sold my Ventures Model Strat 'cause I couldn't get the sounds I like out of the active pick-ups.. I got twice what I paid for that one which was nice. Another was a nice looking natural parts-caster I purchased wherein the neck was never in good sync with the body. The rest were Squier Strats I purchased circa 1982 when I couldn't believe you could get a Strat for $150-. I went for 3 of 'em and then realized the necks weren't cut as nice as my '79.

For some reason I went off the colour, sold it about 4 years ago. Now, I regret selling it. Very nice guitar, sounded great. And now, guess what?... I really like Daphne Blue Strats..... Duh!!!!!!!
