GAS attack thwarted - FMT !!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Sanctum, Jan 31, 2002.


  1. Well I just orderd my American Fender Deluxe Jazz V FMT, Aged Cherry Sunburst. I feel much better. Pictures to follow upon arrival. It could be awhile, as they are backordered, and while some places do have stock, I ordered through my local shop so for the money I'm saving I'll just have to be patient.

    Now how to juggle the books so the wife doesnt get suspicious :D

    Juggle those books brother!!!!! :D My GAS will be cured on Friday. My Eshenbaugh 5 is finished. Mark Eshenbaugh is driving down to Atlanta to attend my gig and soundcheck, so that he can do the necessary tweaking. How's that for customer service? ;)

    Every time I get on this site, you have a new bass coming. I thought you were married? I figure either you're not married, or you're lying about all these basses. I refuse to believe that both are true.

    My Warwick Infinity 5 arrived last nite. I should be good to go for a while anyway. My wife was so upset with me (bass #9), she bought me a Reunion Blues Leather gigbag for Valentine's Day and surprised me with a new guitar stand today. Even if all my basses aren't keepers, she is.
     
  11. Let's face it we are all in trouble. There is no cure for GAS and will never be one. We will just have to live with it. Oh well at least we will have alot of nice basses to play.:D ;)

    man i hate it. you want what you can not have... but i MUST have!!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha:p
     
  16. My number one rule for keeping GAS under control. Never, and I mean NEVER, charge anything to the credit card unless I can pay it off at the end of the month.

    Ultimately, that means I can't buy much. Sure it's not as fun as buying a bunch of sweet gear, but it keeps the finances straight!

    GAS has pretty much put me into financial ruin (well not really but you know what i mean). I put a lot on my credit card and that was SOOOOOOOO STUPID DUMB ME BANG MY HEAD INTO A BRICK!

    anyway. yeah i try to keep a clear head when GAS attacks me. Cognitive dissonance is the side effects of GAS!!!!! The worst was when I had to have a Modulus Quantum 5... GAS made me sell everything (i'm talkin a DVD player to a friend, Sony Playstation to a friend, etc..)....just to get it....after that i was kickin' myself in the head....why does GAS do this to us? Or me for that matter.

    Sometimes I sit in my room with my Pentabuzz and say to myself, "What the hell is wrong with you. Why do you want another bass????" Self control is key. Am I the only one????

    I finance my purchases by selling junk bonds to pre-schoolers. You'd be surprised how those Pennys add up;)

    If I bought half of the stuff I see... I'd be funkycarnivore;)

    The worst part of GAS is the dreaded "buyer's remorse".
