    Nope. I've been looking at interfaces and building my own preamps. My mind is telling me "WTH, man???" But my gut is saying, "I wonder what a Neve sounds like..."

    Well...with the kind of gear you have/had, I can imagine you aren't too curious right now. That's a compliment BTW. But don't worry, there's no cure for GAS. Your lack thereof is only temporary. Cheers.
     
  6. Worry not, amigo...it'll be back.
     
  7. yes... temporary! this too shall pass...

    My GAS is in remission. I thought I was buying my dream bass (Q5) but it turns out my cheap Yamaha is better for me. I have a little GAS for a Sterling that is hanging at the store, but not much else. I think I am actually getting tired of swapping and nit-picking my tone. No one else cares, I think I sound good so why the endless revolving door?

    I'm in full GAS swing! On top of the roller coaster and hopefully coming down for a little while. As we all can atest it can be pretty time consuming.

    You're out of GAS? GAS is what helps my workday pass quicker. I praise God for the abundant GAS He's given me! I will be praying that the GAS returns for you, I really don't think we can ever be free from it.

    Dear god, I have a thing for maple and blocks :crying: and to top it off a blue body, did you swap the neck? I don't remember fender selling a bass like that, but I could be wrong (more than likely I am) :bag:

    I hear ya. Ever since I got my Nordy sounding and playing like I wanted to, I've hardly even looked at another bass. I often find myself even considering selling a bass or two, as I don't see myself really feeling the need to play them much since my Nordy became my main player. I agree, it is a weird feeling. My amp GAS though? That never seems to go away. Somebody is always coming out with a new head or cab that I'd love to try.

    Not like that at all.

    I had Noll Guitars, a local luthier, strip the poly off a Geddy Lee I bought used from TB'er Cheezwiz.

    It was then refinished in LPB Nitro.

    I added the following mods:
    Bad@ss II bridge (the original was swapped)
    Lindy Fralin Split Coil pups
    Hipshot detuner on the E.

    I decided to leave it passive. Great bass and I love the
    color.

    I will have to drag it up to AJ's house one night to give him
    a dose of GAS.

    This sounds pretty familiar... I think the last time I read about this was when you had your AC5 and your Sadowsky 24/5. How many basses ago was that particular lineup?? Are you only playing 4s now?
