    Just when I thought I was done and cured of the dreaded G.A.S. (after recieving delivery on my Status Kingbass Standard, the best bass I have ever owned.) I am finding myself gassing hard for a Basslab L Bow and an Auerswald Cleo 4. Damn, they are just too badass! are there any Basslab or Auerswald (or both :hyper: ) owners in the house?

    You know, I have the same problem with both these bassmakers.
    Oddly enough, if I play my new Status Electro, my GAS disappears!!!

    ok I understand the purpose of saying G.A.S. but what is it an abbreviation for? I've been wondering for the longest time.
     
  4. GAS stand for Gear Acquisition Syndrome -- the compulsive purchase of new gear for the sake of purchasing new gear. as in, "i know i don't need it, but i have a severe urge to buy it, anyway."

    i know the definition is in some FAQ somewhere, but i couldn't find it with a quick search, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable than i can post a link.

    i have GAS for a basslab STD IV.

    The Electro is pretty damned pimp if I must say so myself.
