Hello, my name is Desmund, and I am addicted to acquiring gear.
Hello Desmund. My name is Marc, and I loved getting shiny new basses. I'm on my way out of the program.
hello marc, my name is jacob and i cant stop buying/selling/trading amps
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.
hey man! i don't need your group. i can quit anytime i want. i'm just a social gear nut........
Hello all, my name is Drew and allthough I don't need any more gear, I can't stop looking and thinking "if I only had a few extra dollars...."
I swear to gear, I'm not God.
My name is John & I've been taking prescribed thorozine to alieviate GAS, but now I just & play slower.
Hi. I can give it up any time I want to. Really.
Hang on, wait just a sec... are you insinuating that there are people without G.A.S.?
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 wife believes I only need 1 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 ?
Maybe if we can collect enough of them they can be traded in for gear !
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.
My name is Jason and I recently relapsed buying my now, eighth bass, just last month.
Go the illegal route first, the vital organs are for when every
other option goes south.
hello, my name is bass geetarist, and I bought 6 geetars/bass geetars in the last year, not to mention three I bought and traded in
