    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. :facepalm:

    but ok. :hbang:

    How about you junkies? :D

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

    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. :agreed:

    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.

    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! :D

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

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