    This is like me looking for the perfect pick. Hmmm, $10 for three? Well, I dunno, do I really want to spend... Wait, it's only $10. Add to cart.

    Bankruptcy fifteen years ago put an end to my GAS pretty quick.

    I was going to make a long post but I have to get to the guitar shop before it closes. :D

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Not trying to be mean or anything but when I saw your typo I couldn't not post this.

    I have been very lucky and stable with my gear adventure, but my wife the bass player and also my best friend and guitar mentor, both have the ongoing swapping, trading, selling, seeking ... never quite attainable GAS disease. So, I am well aware of this horrifying grasp of doom.

    I know that I have no words of wisdom to help, because I now know how incurable it is.

    I gotcha covered. I traded into 3 pricey reverb pedals (for, you know, variety) in February - for home use. Of course, that required me to get a pricey power supply just to satisfy the unique demands of each. Only to realize I kept setting them to sound the same as the two settings I already used on my MicroCube. Which to my delight and dismay, sounded just as good, when I A/Bd them. I’m a special kind of dumbass.

    My GAS ran out about 15 years ago when I started to get serious about learning to play songs. I discovered all the sounds I needed—I already had.

    the only ‘gear’ thing I deal with now is building guitars. But it’s more from of the need to be building something functional than it is to have another guitar. I give many of them away.

    Yeah but at least all the new pedals left you sounding the same.

    I sounded genuinely worse!

    The more active I am in bands and writing, the less I get distracted by the Universe of Shiny Things.
    With performance opportunities on hiatus, I have regressed to the level if building a partscaster.
