26 Parralax View 3 months ago A couple of real screw ups on my part were both acquiring and keeping, and letting go of things I thought were not really worth it later.I bought a 4X10 solid state Standel Artist in around 1965. As a kid or as an adult, possibly the worst, muddiest, and just unispiring amp I ever owned. I traded it for a Kustom 100 watt head and cab with 2X15's. Brand new black tuck and roll. It was nice, but I after a while considered it cheesy and sold it to finance a Super Reverb.My Mosrite Ventures II Model Guitar in blue. I figured it was a kids guitar. I kept it under the bed while I was in the Navy and Traded it off to a trunk Gypsy for something or another. He was going to Las Vegas to start a music and pawn, which he did, where the guitar was bought to learn on and quickly returned. Enter Tim, of Tym guitars in Brisbane Australia. He bought it and took it back to Brisbane with him for his Ramone collection. It resides there today in a glass case full of Memorabilia to the Ramones.When I was a kid, I didn't know from Ramones, but I wanted a Jaguar in the worst way and got one later. I never even thought of the blue guitar again until I saw it on the web. We compared serials and marks and at least I know it survives in care. The last one was an unknown vintage, beat to hell Les Paul when I didn't have a guitar. But I did have 4 wide ovals brand new mounted on Krager mags that I was going to eventually put on some car. He wanted the wheels, I wanted the LP. I never even plugged it in as I didn't have an amp after liquidating all my gear in a divorce. It could have been a great one for all I know, and all I know is that it was ugly and beat to hell.
