Have you ever sold your instrument and then missed it & regret it so much?

Once, i was active playing the bass guitar at the university. I got a band, played for the university, played for functions and etc. But then, i took a wrong decision to sell my Ibanez GSR 180 bass guitar and Ashton 30W bass amplifier for damn cheap price. In my laptop, i have a collection of over than 300 live videos. Now, everytime i see the videos, my fingers are like searching for the fretboard. I'm not financially fit to buy another bass guitar now and I don't have friends to jam with.

I went through this a couple of months ago. I was planning to propose to my girlfriend then. I actually had enough money to buy an engagement ring, but I wanted to express how much she means to me by giving up something really really dear to me --- my 80's G&L L2000. Sold the bass to a friend for a good price. And as fairy tales go, I am now happily married. Although I miss the G&L terribly, especially when I see my friend use it at gigs, I actually don't regret selling the bass. In fact I'm really filled with so much joy whenever I see the engagement ring on my wife's finger. It gives it so much more meaning.
