I'm hoping this thread will be helpful to more bassists than just myself. I have a big problem with GAS, so much so that I find myself angry and depressed when I lack a certain tone I'm after. Ill buy a bass, convince myself that it's all I need, and a few weeks later Im GASsing for something else. Except for maybe a pickup swap in one of my basses, I love the sound of everything I own. Still, I can't escape the constant GAS for new equipment. A little GAS can be fun, like for a new pedal. I think that's what drives us to improve our tone. However, mine seems to be out of control. It seriously makes me ridiculously pissed off when I can't get X sound, and it makes me feel a disgusted with myself as a musician. It's making me have to spend time away from playing, and I'm not having that. So to all my fellow bassists, how do I cure this? I really want to just enjoy what I have, and focus on being a better player. Seriously, someone please help me out.
