    If my skill level ever caught up, I would be very happy. Being happy and not thinking you have GAS doesn't mean you can't have a sudden bout of GAS that comes on all of a sudden at unexpected times. It's the "oh, shiny" moment of gear ownership.
  2. Happy happy happy! Might look at an additional bass sometime, but no rush.

    Very happy but might be trying to get a Pedulla Buzz 5 string fretless one day.
  5. My sound isn't great, cuz I don't have a job. No job -> No dineros. No cash -> No sexy bass tone.
  6. I'm happy with all my stuff. Have been for a while. Sure, I don't have the vintage stuff that I dream about, but I'm happy with the sound, the feel, and the reliability. I got all my basses covered for all the styles I might need to do.
    And I have some good recording gear, a nice 60's Ludwig drum kit, and a Hammond B-3 w/ Leslie, so now, all I really long to do is finish each song, mix 'em down, and send them to the mastering guy.

    Pretty much my struggle these days is not gear, but for time to use it all to finish the songs I have.

    I'm pretty happy right now with my current gear (as per my profile). I'm still experimenting with some different kinds of strings, and my upright needs a bit more setup work done, but otherwise, I'm content. Once in a while I see something cool and think "I'd like to have that," but then I play my current stuff, and I love the way it all sounds and feels, and that GAS feeling goes away ...
  8. Intresting posts to say the least....my current setup...Genz Benz Streamliner...NeoX 212....using the SVT setting...makes me happy...as for bass guitars...Rob Elrick Evo V...Roscoe Beck V...and a 70's PBass....SVT and Fender/Ric user most of my on stage days...did the Eden thing....but at 59 years old...weight is a deciding factor.....light weight and good tone....makes me a happy camper also. :D

    This was the last of my gear GAS. Before this I bought a new Gibson Midtown. The Gibson EB five string is a cool new addition. The MarkBass rig is outstanding.

    Happy for sure. Love my big bad GK NEO 412 with my big bad Ashdown ABM 900, such a weird combo but weird is good! My pedalboard also makes me happy and GAS free. The only thing I'd upgrade now is my bass. Or maybe just get another one. But yea, happy.

    Mark me down for "happy with my gear". It can play the bass at least as good as I can. :D
