I only wanted to ask.
I think it's called being B.R.O.K.E.
If that fails, try living in a flat that's really S.M.A.L.L. You can't buy gear if you got nowhere to stow it.
None that I know of, but I have heard playing guitar more than being on guitar forums or checking out gear reviews can help.
Indeed. Add a W.I.F.E. and there's no room for gas...
I tried to do "One in, one out". I really tried...
but there is a therapy
This thread is hilarious.
No vaccine. The disease will run its course. Only three possible outcomes.
You run out of money.
You run of space.
Your natural immunities win the battle and you decide you have what you want.
Pick a new hobby/past time...something more expensive .
It won't cure your GAS...but it will provide anyone watching/commenting something more important to fix/slow . Make guitar gear a pleasing/less expensive alternative .
Hey, you might end up with a nice Corvette, Harley, airplane, boat or treehouse as a result!
I'm pretty sure it's a Deluxe Reverb, 'cause the Princeton isn't loud enough. What did you say?
Yes, one each of an amazing acoustic and electric guitar built resistance to guitar buying for each type.
Treatment #1 is much more effective than #2. Really, being B.R.O.K.E might be the best cure we have.
I live in a 500 sqft apartment and have 8 guitars. It is effective against amp GAS tho, I only have one.
Simple. One more is the final cure.
Why would you want to cure it? It's just so much fun!
I hear there may be, but it is more expensive than just letting the disease run its course.
Can tell you from extensive personal experience that being low on money, having a wife, or being low on space doesn't preclude GAS. In some ways, all of those obstacles just makes it worse, because the cravings for retail therapy escape deepen, and then, if you're an unfortunate chronic sufferer like I am, you unavoidably figure out how to build substitutes for the stuff you can't afford, can't store, or can't hide any more. So ultimately, rather than owning the decent, but otherwise unremarkable $800 Ibanez S540FM in green and black with gold hardware you fell in love with at a guitar shop thirty years ago, you end up with two OTHER Ibanez S-series models, alongside about 25 other guitars, none of which cost more than $500, enough parts to make another 20 or so sitting in a cabinet in your garage, more than twenty small-to-medium amps, a six foot high by ten foot wide stack of combos and cabs, and a pedal collection that can best be measured in cubic feet, none of which you're willing to let go of. And you'll still want that !#[email protected]#^ Ibanez.
And they're still more than $500. #%!!!!
Wife: "Is that a new guitar?" "Didn't we talk about this?"
