Ok, I feel silly for asking, but what is "GAS"/"GASing"

I'm assuming it's an abbreviation or acronym.

....and it doesn't "heal up" either.

Sometimes I think it's more dangerous than a crack habit!

Re: Ok, I feel silly for asking, but what is "GAS"?

oooh, so THATS whats happening to me! ive been playing my old roadstar 2 for 20 years. then last year i thought - time to buy something nice - and got an rgt320q. suddenly i found myself going to various guitar shops and checking musicians friend regularily, reading pickup and amp reviews ad nasium, etc. then i discovered that there were things like j customs, 10th, 15th, 20th anniversary jems, OH MY!

in addition to the above, im majorly GASsing for an music man Morse and Petrucci!

Marraige only provides a temporary reduction in the physical symptoms of GAS as described earlier by Drow Swordsman.

The change that GAS has on your DNA is permanent !!!!
