Have you ever passed up amazing deals on gear?

I ask because I recently did and I just wondered what other people would do in similar situations. I passed up a JemDBK, NOS, for $599. It was a great guitar and I had played it alot but I really didn't need it for anything. Do any of you have similar experiences and are kicking yourself for not buying it or are you happy you didn't?

I once passed up a mint JPM90HAM and JS90HAM which were about $800 a piece. I just didn't like the way they felt and played, even though they looked great and had the artists' sound. I already had a Jem90HAM BTW, which I still have and play. If I could have had a PGM90HAM for that price I would've went for it. I like the way PGMs play

I am right now passing on a UV7BK which I am absolutely dying for (not necessarily that particular model, but I want a UV in the worst way). The BIN is set at $635 shipping included. It's either that or airfare and tix to the Orlando G3. This G3 is once in a lifetime. Another UV will roll around. I will probably hate myself later.
