Do you have GAS only for bass stuff?

    I always suffer from bass-related GAS. But now that I'm also very into guitar, my GAS for guitar stuff is unbearable. Add to that my life-long love affair with synths, and I can barely survive.

    There are a few things for guitar that I really look for. E series MIJ Strat necks, mainly.

    I like drum stuff too but havent been buying any of that lately. I dont lust for guitar effects at all right now; I am pretty minimalist when it comes to that. I like a plug and play tube tone.

    As a guitarist of 42 years, my days are heavily consumed with guitar GAS!

    My guitar GAS-wishlist was only 7 items, which is much more manageable than my 140 bass GAS-wishlist. Of the 6, I picked up 2 of those guitars last year.
    Original List... You'll probably note I am partial to Gibson electrics, as my Dad has always owned an ES-120T since I was a child. However, for some reason the SG model never appealed to me. Similarly for Fender, the Telecaster never appealed to me either.:
    √ Gibson Les Paul (didn't matter if it was Studio/Standard/etc)
    √ Gibson Flying V
    Gibson Explorer
    Gibson Moderne Limited Run
    Gibson ES-137
    Fender American Standard Stratocaster
    Framus Panthera Studio

    Edit: I originally thought this thread was specifically about music gear. After discovering this is not the case, I decided to re-visit this post to add non-musical items I like...

    Movies (Blu-Rays/DVDs): There are times when I literally cannot control my movie purchases (credit card max as my only saving grace.) I have a collection of titles just under 1,800. It got to the point where I had to purchase Collectorz http://www.collectorz.com/ cataloguing software and an iOS App to keep track of them, because a number of times I returned home with movies I already owned. I already have a decent setup to watch movies. This man-cave is the same as my bass room. I'm not posting pictures until I manage to hang my basses/guitars on my wall.

    I generally look for bass-specific gear, but there's always that thought of "I wonder how this will work with guitar" since I do play both.

    Mountain bikes. These are the two that I have (one for hardcore trail riding, one for light duty/road/city riding). If I were rich, I'd probably have about 13 bikes. 9 of which would be based completely on looks. I'm not bragging, but just so that you know what you are looking at, the "big" bike was $2,800 new and has about another $1,000 in mostly functional, but a couple of aesthetic upgrades on it.
    Right now its running top of the line studded tires which are $80 a piece : (

    I think my GAS is pretty much non existent. I'd like a Dingwall Super P 5. That's it. I think it has to do with the fact that I moved from Europe to Asia and now back again. You can't hold on to everything and you realize how little some of your stuff actually means to you...

    GAS? Yes, a lot! (mtb, computers, my girl, my house...). Money, not a bit, the best medicine for GAS

    I'm a drummer too. So the new Roland TD-30KV top-of-the-line electronic drum kit is on my list. Only £6k!
