GASheads, let's have a support group!

Let's hear your numbers. How many have you guys gotten before in a week? a day? a year? Let's hear about your disorder! My max thus far is 7 in a week.

but ok.

How about you junkies?

Hi,
I am Zack. I have a problem. Maybe I should start doing drugs more. Drugs = less money for gear = solution!

You have a serious problem, Engage.


That being said, 3 in a week.

Normally one every few months

I thought I was bad.

I don't have a 7-string any more and I like fat necks and single-coils, come at me.

I try to keep it to 2 a year.

That being said I just got a guitar off Ebay that I have been specifically searching for for 2+ years, it's in the shop getting a complete workover. Also I have one in the build phase at a boutique builder, and I am on the edge of putting down a deposit with Mayones. I've got addiction problems.

Yeah... I might have a problem. I've spent about 10k on gear in the past 12 months.... maybe more.

I've been really good. haven't bought a guitar or bass in well over a year. Not that I don't suffer from mood-altering GAS every week.

In the past I've bought as many as 2-3 in a month (when I was working at a store and I just couldn't help myself). 7 in a week, though. That's next level.

2-3 still counts in a month as being next level for most of us broseph!

I was trying for these. Both of these will signify the end to my GAS. I lost them both...



When I have these? I will have ZERO reason to continue!

At least until Jona sells one of his! Can't believe I was so broke when they were both for SALE!

I was doing good until this damn site. 6 months, 2 KxK's a RAN & a deposit on a build placed. Saving for another 7 string deposit at the moment.

Nothing like what you have. I got an S470, RG2228, and RG7321. Only about $1500 total.

Still a sick haul though man!

I just sold my 2228, best eight I had played! ESPECIALLY for the money.

So true!

Fixed.

But on topic, I have more GAS than I can afford, so I think I'm up to three in one year. In my defense, one was a gift, although compared to some of you, my defense is unwarranted. What some of you guys can afford blows my mind sometimes.

▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀▄▀

Do you see some of those big imposing Securitrons with their lovely laser guns and rocket launchers and scary faces? I am not one of those.


(That's a link, by the way.)

I'm lucky to get one a year. But then I am an unemployed student. Once I have a job, NGDs will be aplenty.
