    Buying new bass gear may make you feel good and grow more hair but you will loose your shirt ;)

    I read that article in the Babylon Bee News. Below it they have another article related to instrument purchases.
    "GAS-itis and it's complications"
    It says, telling one's significant other you spent another $1,000 on a bass can shorten the purchasers life,
    can lead to divorce and even sometimes sudden death. Please read the label closely and consult your doctor before beginning
    G.A.S. purchases.

    My Grandfather played the violin. He eventually died. I don’t think that the violin had anything to do with it, though.

    That's why we keep buying more of them! 5 years for each guitar, right?

    Go Jays! That's a pretty good use of research funding.
