I'm Finally Done Buying Gear. Seriously, I Really Am

    Looks like I am finally done buying gear!!! And yes, I really mean it this time.

    Boss Blues Driver
    Ibanez TS9 (I'm going to sell that one)
    Digitech Bad Monkey

    Marshall JCM800 2203 & 2x12 cab with Creambacks (I really need to put wheels on that cab!!)
    Vox AC15C1 on its way to my local store from another store down east (I want it for portability and, although it is heavy for a 1x12, it is still more portable than the Marshall head and cab)

    Yamaha LL6 acoustic
    Partscaster '60s Custom Tele
    Les Paul Signature T Gold Top

    That's it, I'm done. What more could I possibly need?

    I believe I'm done with GAS, too. I have come to the cold, hard truth of the matter. It's not the gear, it's me.

    That's what they all say. Things like, I can quit anytime. Never again. Count me out on buying guitars. I can live just fine without another single guitar. Of course this is all just foolishly bold talk from mostly old fat men.

    I know this is a Tele forum, but a home without a Strat is not a home.

    I have switched from add to delete mode wrt gear. Very few items that I really want/need at this point, constantly going back to the old favourites the more I try new stuff.
    I'd love to get to a 1-stop load in and load out operation but probably dreaming on that...

    Congratulations! You have finished the internet.

    If I were in your shoes though, I would still get a Vox MV50 AC before calling it quits, just because they're so cheap already, and you have a good 2x12 to run it into. What could it hurt? Then compare the AC15 to the MV50. Maybe one sounds bigger, maybe more scooped. Man everything sounds so great through Creambacks! I should get another 2x12 so I don't have to share the one between the JCM and the MV50. Now that I have 2 Vox amps though, I'm kinda digging the Vox/2x12 idea... maybe I need a treble boost and a cheap Strat. Kind of like Rory Gallagher, even though I have my own sound. So that's that. Also a wah pedal, because Strat + wah + fuzz = AWESOME. Plus it would be cool to have verb and trem on the other amps besides the AC15, so maybe a Strymon Flint. After that I'm DONE. No more gear. Just those 4 electric guitars, 3 amps, and a handful of choice effects pedals. Well, I should get a 4th amp for the 4th guitar maybe, to maintain symmetry...

    Great sentiment....good luck. My GAS is on hiatus now as well, except a hankering for one of these
    ultralight amp units such as DV Mark is putting out.

    I need to do some herd thinning but find myself lacking the will to move forward on it right now.
    It's one thing to stop buying more gear, it's another to let gear go. I know I should since I have no need
    for 15 guitars and there are several I almost never touch. If I can get a decent price for them I should let them
    go and free up some space in my house and in my cluttered brain.

    Just gave away to a buddy who has helped me a lot my first new guitar 1994 silver series Japanese Strat. Great one down!
    Sold my big D style rig. Great one more down!

    Now I'm jonesing for a Precision LP 59 body and neck to put together a nice guitar. I must have added to basket 10 times before shutting down the browser.
    I have got to stop but how ?

    Well, right off the bat, you got no P90s... and no Strat...
