Re: Anyone know of a good rehab center for GAS

Sweet. Is that an RX series with the white pickguard and pups? If so, what model?

Been on the look out for an original RX for a long time, but not a maple bodied one. Closest you can get these days is the cheapo GRX40, which looks cool and has a great neck, but everything else about it sucks!

I guess an AT100 would be a close to an RX, but that would mean mucho expenditure, if I could even find one

And don't even get me started on the 7-string version they made for Dave Weiner...



Man I want that guitar real bad.

Re: Anyone know of a good rehab center for GAS

A few self help exercises from Walter Becker (Steely Dan singer/very fine guitarist and occasional contributor to Guitar Player Mag):

Here are a couple of ideas which should be reviewed by any sufferer on the brink of yet another G.A.S. attack:

1. Consider for a moment the karmic implications of owning all those guitars. Picture yourself dragging your ass through eternity with all those guitars strapped to your back. In hardshell cases, not gig bags.

2. Who's gonna tune those buggers? Who's gonna change the strings? (this won't work for guys who are buying and selling with great frequency, i.e., if you don't keep them long enough to change the strings)

3. Imagine that your wife finds out how many guitars you actually have ("Is that another new guitar?" "Oh, no, honey - this one's about twenty five years old!")

4. Pretend you are a clarinet player - how many clarinets do you own?

5. Ask yourself: would I like to be thought of and remembered as a guitar player or as a guitar owner?

6. Imagine that you are in whatever vintage guitar shop you visit frequently and are dealing with the owner of the shop. He is of course severely stricken with G.A.S. Now imagine that you are taking on his personality,with each new purchase you become more and more like him. This one exercise, done properly, will do more to stem the tide of new G.A.S. sufferers than anything else I can think of right now.

The last one does it for me, so much.......

Now, about that Candy Apple Red Strat with the solid Rosewood neck I'm jonesing for........

Just go to GC and overdose yourself to death. Then we can all pick up your current guitars at your estate sale for cheap!

Re: Anyone know of a good rehab center for GAS

I know how: find a guitar you like. any guitar. replicate it. should last a decent while, and if you have spare parts, use them. i did it lasted my bout 6months.
try:
EVH
Malmsteen Duck
BLACKIE
wait those r strat styles, but i guess you can still do it? maybe with proper mods u can turn a superstrat into a funky super strat with fake pickguard, and strat style pups! OOOHHHH
that would be lame unless you re routed it for the new style, i think...
or take a guitar
completly disassemble it
and get some parts
pretend your poor
dont go on enet for pics of guitars
LOL they should make a net nanny for gass!!!
