You know you're addicted to guitars when...

You know you're addicted to guitars when:


- You turn the bathroom tap and listen for a change in pitch as you turn it.

- Upon hearing someone say "We'll cross that bridge when you get to it", you imagine minature people clambering over one of the bridge saddles on a Fender Telecaster.

- You're with your friends talking about the recent shark sightings and your mind keeps coming back to the inlays in the neck of your Ibanez.

- You're writing a Christmas card to Mr Floyd down the street, and write "Mr Floyd Rose" on the envelope by accident.

- You mention breaking a g-string without thinking about what you're saying. People get the wrong idea, but you meant the 3rd string on a guitar.

- You hear a pinging sound and instantly think your string retainer's broken, even though your guitar is not with you.

- You think Maple Syrup is meant to be used for cleaning maple fretboards.

- You're writing a Christmas card to your neighbour Les, and write "Les Paul" on the envelope by accident.

- If anyone mentions anything being overpriced you automatically think "Gibson guitars".

- You spend your spare time making picks out of ice-cream container lids.

- You've made so many picks out of ice-cream container lids that you've run out of lids and start making them out of milk bottles.


Anyone else got some?

You buy StarWars Tazos just to carve them into Picks even though your a 33 yr old man.

You constantly convince yourself that you need more then one guitar to play guitar.

You wake up each day, and you check Jemsite before you brush your teeth.

Your wife knows more about Ibanez Guitars then most of your friends...

Every move in life is another step towards buying another guitar...

Re: You know you're addicted to guitars when...

....your friend tells you he was in a Fender bender - and you think /Stratocaster jam.

...you get pissed off every time you hear someone tell you they are good at 'Guitar Hero'

...you REALLY AND TRULY consider dumping your girl when she's mad at you for rehearsing with the band.

Re: You know you're addicted to guitars when...

You justify not paying the rent by "needing a single coil strat"

Youd rather listen to a Hendrix cd rather then the Mrs...

On that topic of the mrs knowing more about ibanez etc she went to work and started a conversation with a work friend that plays guitar and started to quiz him and well it turns out she knows alot more about Mixolyidan, G3, Steve vai, floyd rose and ibanez them him.

Re: You know you're addicted to guitars when...

... When you bring a girlfriend home, the first thing she remarks on is your guitar gear.

... You wait impatiently for christmas because you know you're getting a new stompbox.

... You start telling your mates stuff about the guitar you've built, despite the fact they're clearly not interested / don't understand what the hell you're talking about.

... You're giving a kid a guitar lesson and you think, "Nah, you don't want to learn that, LEARN THIS! *intense shredding in the mind*"

... One whole side of your room is covered by guitars, amps, posters, tickets and other gig memorabilia (I'm almost there, just need to move the rugby stuff first)

... You don't want the cleaner to do anything in your room in case she damages your guitar stuff.

... You spend about 10 minutes thinking up ways of knowing that you're addicted to guitars (which you should be spending on maths papers)

... People scroll through the artists on your iPod and ask, "Who the f*ck even ARE these people?"

Re: You know you're addicted to guitars when...

... when your final major project for a Graphic Design degree turns into a guitar mag.

... when your girlfriend accuses you of spending more time with your guitar.

... when your idea of "gospel music" is Sex and Religion.

... when you live off noodles for a month in order to save money for a new pedal.

... when half of your student loan installment goes on a new amp.

... when you find yourself inadvertently fingering modes on the edge of your desk at work.

I'll be honest, I've done that one. I asked what her setup was like straight afterward and she just gave me a bemused stare. Took a while for me to live that one down.

I don't hang around with the kinda women who even SAY rack. Its a very American phrase. Over here in England where things make SENSE, we just say tits or boobs.
