    Nah, that doesn’t come into play until much, much later.

    I must say it was fun researching and visiting music stores when major GAS was burning as I evolved as a player, but I'm enjoying the "playing-what-I-have" even more these days than any GAS crisis.

    Old age and a lack of opportunities to play/perform with others have cured my GAS - no Pepto-Bismol required.

    I have 4 electrics, 3 acoustic/electrics, 1 amp for electric guitar, 1 amp for acoustic.

    Not counting bass guitars and amps, I've gone through 46 guitars and 34 amps since I was a teenager in the '60's.

    I'm happy with what I've got now.

    I have 10 electrics and 7 acoustics plus a Deering banjitar and a cheap lap steel.

    Just bought a strat yesterday. A 2010 John Mayer, 3T burst, alder, African rosewood - (FAT) neck.

    The tank is full for a while. With the needle pegged FULL.

    I like to try different guitars out.
    Sometimes I buy them to do that, in depth.
    I buy, sell and trade fairly often.
    I guess I’m “catching and releasing” them.
    I seem to do this most often with Gibson type, two pickup guitars.
    Hmmmm.
    I’ve been doing this for decades.
    I suppose I must enjoy the quest.

    Exactly! Except I love pedals and amps, and that's been the main drug lately…

    Exactly! Aw, shucks. And: IME, with a bit of love and minor upgrades, Epis are great.

    I'm done apart from another Strat, vintage Tele, a Mustang, a Musicmaster, a P Bass, an ES 335, maybe an LP Special, Maybe a Musicman Stingray, still not quite over Flying Vs and I have a few parts to make a project. Oh yeah, still looking for an SG. And not ruled out a jazz box. Or a 12 string.

    Apart from that, I'm completely done... :/
