GAS...

Gear Acquistion Syndrome, I have it majorly!!! Anyone else? I search at auctions everyday, I search here, & some local music shops. I can't get enough. There are so many guitars that I want! I want a lot of equipment too. And, I'm not that good. I need to hit the lottery to buy everything I want and than get on with my goals and life including getting better at guitar. This is ridiculous! My GF is sick of seeing Jemsite & my co-workers are sick of seeing me surf in the bay.

Re: GAS...

Well there are always going to be guitars that I want, but I am pretty happy with what I have atm. I still have my two RGs coming and I snagged a 7620 the other night. However I do want a JTM 45.

Re: GAS...

Yeah! If my playing went on how much gear I had, I think I'd be a legend by now.

Re: GAS...

I've got one guitar, no amplifier, my car is an '86 Honda. Guess that's why I'm an extremely good guitar player...
