    Hello, Jacob. My name is Jim and I have frittered away a small fortune on amps, cabinets, basses, strings, bridges. . . .all to try and achieve perfect "tone". Lately I've been trolling the effects and pedals forum. The bottom (ha!) can't be far away.

    If only there was a cure. But then I look at the "professional" big time bass players, and they are always getting new gear. So I don't think there is.

    Definition of a GASaholic: someone who buys more gear than you do.

    My wife's definition of a GASaholic: anyone with more than one bass and rig.

    GC's definition of a GASaholic: our target customer!! (Will you little wankers please stop slapping and BUY something already!?!)

    Hello everyone. It's nice to be attending my first GA meeting.

    I suffer from BASS (Buy And Sell Stuff).

    It started as GAS, and developed into BASS.

    My as long as I break even and aren't spending more money on instruments, my fiancee is ok with my basses. She has commented on how pretty all of them are. I'm glad this is coming to a close.

    If I can stay GAS free for a month, do I get anything equivalent to a sobriety token ? :D
    Maybe if we can collect enough of them they can be traded in for gear !

    Crazy talk!

    In any case, the total $$$ I have spent on shipping basses and guitars over the last 5 years would easily fund a new Sadowsky NYC.

    Luckily I have 2 expensive customs on order and still owe $$$ on those. Any other GAS fuelled purchases would have to involve me selling vital organs or something illegal.

    Go the illegal route first, the vital organs are for when every
    other option goes south.
