    I'm pretty much set for guitar stuff. Don't know whether I'm bragging or complaining. :cool:

    But there are still some yearnings for musical gear...

    Bagpipes, always bagpipes.

    Other than that, for me, it's a mandola/octave mandolin/mandocello/bouzouki (haven't decided which yet)

    How about you?

    Any studio owner will tell you.... Microphones are a far bigger GAS problem than anyone could ever imagine, followed by compressors.

    I need to get rid of a trumpet - really nice large bore Olds.

    My wife and I will be downsizing in a few years (10?) and we look at everything we have and ask "Would you move it?"

    We need less stuff - I guess more music stuff gets wrapped up in that.

    I have an old Nord Electro 2, 73 key. It's old and not really upgradable but it has more than I could ever need. I wanted it basically for the Hammond sounds...everything else is just gravy!

    As old as it is they still seem to hold a pretty high resale. I paid 800 a couple years ago and I see them still advertised for a grand or so...

    One of these days I'm going to break down and buy an E bow. I have no idea what I'm going to use it for, they just seem cool.

    Course I've been saying that for two years.

    I pretty much just GAS for amps and guitars. The rest are necessities of having a functional studio. I do need another microphone right now so I can get a better sound on the drum set, which means a cable, a stand, and the mic. The thought doesn't excite me though.

    Get a practice chanter. It seemed like way too much work to me. I suppose there's always another guitar. I think I need a pastel orange Tele with P-90's for example. However, I have many instruments lying around. I have a mandolin, two banjos, a violin, a button accordion, autoharp...

    I've been hoping to find a great deal (under 500) on a used keyboard controller with (at least 61) weighted keys.

    Always wanted a Rhodes MkII and a vintage Korg CX3... unfortunately can't fit them in. Synths too - have a Juno 106 stored in a studio, bought a Karma when they came out. Too bad that's busted :(

    William, the Electro 2 is the one I want. I've been sitting in on one for a couple of months. The organ is great and I've also been digging the Wurlitzer EP. It's got a really nice feel.

    Yeah, microphones for Shure. :D

    I'm also gassing for cabinet mic'ing gear (Cabgrabbers, Z-Bars, etc...) that get rid of those nasty IEDs otherwise known as shorty booms (again, pun intended). A good, used 49 or 61 key controller is also a source of gas right now. And to finish off the studio, I'm gassing for a good but cheap drum kit.

    Is pedal steel and bass too close to guitar to count?
    I'd like a new doubleneck PSG.
    I'm not sure what make, just something brand new, and preferably somewhat lighter weight.
    Steels are complicated, and older/used ones often have mechanical issues.
    I also want a boring old MIA Fender P bass.
    Rosewood, natural, tort guard, LaBella flats, ya know, like that.

    Whoever said I need keys?
    I need keys like I need another guitar, but I would still like to get this:

    I've been thinking of learning a brass instrument, specifically the cornet because as was the case with the electric guitar, I really dig the sounds they make.

    Unlike guitar, I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't dig the sounds I made on a trumpet or cornet.

    F-type mandolin, I don't play mandolin though.

    Decent PA system.

    A collection of decent mics would be nice too.
