Re: G.A.S. attacks have been intense lately...
...So after I shipped back the G-system, I was in a quandary.
What to get, what to get? Hmm, maybe the G-Force would be the next best thing to do, eh? OF COURSE IT WOULD ! Now through my mind changes and waffling, Spectrum Audio in California was totally cool, they said, "As long as it shows up like we sent it, you can get a refund." So I asked about an even exchange for the G-force, they said NP... Except they didn't have any in stock and they were minimum 2-4 weeks on back order.... Not what I feel like dealing with, but patience IS a virtue, right?
So I'm over on the gear page and a guy has a G-Major for sale dirt cheap, I mean like, "I'm being evicted and would sell my wife to you if she'd let me", cheap. I snatch it and she arrives in MINTY shape (the G-Major, not the guy's wife), with the manuals, stickers, the whole 9 yards... And God Bless those guys over there, they, about 90% of them, LOATHE rack gear, so I'm as happy in a pig in slop to take a nice unit from someone who can't STAND that rack "crap". SO the box arrives, albeit, somewhat smaller than the previous cargo container the G-system came in, but it arrives safely. I eagerly open it and inspect it, all is well.
The wife BTW, noticed the G-system as I was fiddling with it. I'd forgotten to mention that... Mind you, I still hadn't really come up with a way to account for all the $ I'd put on the Discover card on that bad boy, maybe 70% but not all of it... so she asked "whats that thing?" Thinking quickly, I told her it was a new "Chronosynclastic-infindibulum".
She wasn't having it.
So she asked again..
This time I said, ahh, just a lil guitar effects thingy I'm checking out
"And how much was that thing?", she asked.
"Uhh only umm...well uhh...mumble mumblehundred dollars."
She smelled weakness.
It's her Mom !
I say AMEN ! ! !
"I uh, hafta run to the store, I'll be back"
I leave in a flurry of cell phone grabbing, key snatching fervor that can only be equated to that of Jeff Gordon winning the Piston cup.
Mater: He did WHAT in his cup?!
I emerged unscathed, for now...
