    You knew it was only a matter of time...

    Ok, I'll start...

    Hello, my name is Vic, and I'm a obsessive compulsive GAS'er. It's been 4 weeks since I bought a bass.

    I can tell you all the serial numbers on all my basses, details on woods, origins build dates, tone, and construction, but I can't remember what my kids look like and my wife just tried to report me to the missing persons bureau...

    LOL!! :D

    Hello...my name is Aaron. I have GAS.

    Right now, I'm gassing for a lined fanned-fretless Dingwall Afterburner, SX Telecaster, Mountain Rhythm Bongos and Djembe, and a Yorkville XS400 combo w/15" extension speaker.

    I think it'd be completely hilarious if this thread got really popular and huge. If not, no biggie... it's been a helluva laff already...

    I don't really have GAS anymore. Yeah, there are a couple of things I wouldn't mind having, but nothing I need. Well, maybe a decent 12 string guitar.:D

    This is more of a Miscellaneous thread, so off it goes!
