Right....since it's getting VERY CLOSE to the end of the year (already), I thought I'd start a thread where we can all share our aromatic experiences:)

This years been a bit gassy! Even though I was unemployed for nearly 4 months!

Okay.......in March, I saw a deal for a Korg D3200. Musicians Friend was having a close out and I got the following package for $ 999.00
It that an okay deal??

A Korg D3200 32-track Digital Recording Studio
An MXL 992 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
A pair of MXL 993 Condenser Microphones
A pair of M-Audio BX5A 70W Active Studio Monitors
3 Musician's Friend Tripod Mic Stands with Fixed Booms
A 50-Pack of Pro Media CDRs
3 Lo-Z 20' Mic Cables
2 Live Wire Advantage 10' Instrument Cables

Next - in July.....the one and only Vrmr:mrgreen: (at least until JP gets his neck back) BTW - how's that coming, JP??

Well, I've gotten tired of going through drummers and having them take their kits, etc. So I decided I wanted a house kit.

Pearl Forum Series w/Zildjian symbols/DW 7000 double pedal. (it's a blast:D)

Shortly after I got the drums, this came along:)

Chance meeting on a bus! Actually, I'm thinking it was more destiny than chance, because Shaun has become a very good friend! He can play guitar and bass, but not very good, lol....but he sure can PLAY dem drums! We've got 7 all original songs down. I think we may actually be on to something here. I'll post some vids soon. Remember, we are just getting together so don't tear me apart too bad:lol: (WE NEED A LEAD SINGER!!!!!) Anyone interested???

And last, but not least...the HIGHLY controversial IbanED :lol:

Alright..that's my Gaseous story. I've found that it is good and healthy to "expult" gasses from time to time:razz:

Anyone else care to share their Aromatic advenuress of 06???? ;O)

We'll have to do this every year;O)

Even though I was pretty broke all year, I still found too much money to waste on gear, although it was usually financed by selling other gear...

60s bigsby tele (sold already)
EJ Strat (sold)
Orange AD30 head
Epiphone Valve Jr
Custom 1X10 cab for VJ
Les Paul Standard w/Birdseye mapls top
Light Ash Tele
61 RI SG
Martin Acoustic
Peavey Max 115 Bass Amp
Yamaha 5 string bass
EM/MM Petrucci 7 (sold right away)
Custom Shop Les Paul (Still waiting to take delivery of it)
WCR Pickups
2 RS Kits wire upgrades
A few Ducan Jbs, Jazzs' and 59s

I think thats everything.
Officially my New Year's Resolution will be to not spend so much money on gear next year, atleast not until I get a band going.

Gee it sucks to be poor! :lol:

Finished off my custom IbanezRG/JEM style guitar with straplocks, an EMG 89 and had to re-make the scratchplate due to it breaking during a test pickup install.

Bought a Saga PRS style kit from Demuirge here on Jemsite, installed Mighty Mite Motherbuckers, replaced electronics in the kit with good stuff, painted it, etc.

Bought a Zoom G7.1ut

Upgraded my RG470 with an original Edge trem, EMG 81 (may be picking up an SA to finish the 81 - SA - 85 combo), EVH D-Tuna, straplocks, new strap.

I think that's it!
