    I need a quick cure (s) for gear acquisition syndrome (GAS)! Is there a doctor in the house?

    The doctor comes running to the rescue...

    There is NO cure for G.A.S. It's a terminal illness. Sorry. Please organise your affairs, and tell your loved ones...

    My bill will be on its way.

    ;)

    Dr. Mike may also drop by - he will charge you too.

    Have four (kids that is) and a house. I think a wife might be what the doctor ordered!

    My GAS is (was?) building to astronomical proportions...hopefully, tomorrow I can get about 1800 bucks of Eden gear for cheap (pawnshop, under half price...whoo hoo!). If Not...then I may very Well need to just go buy some cords, a strap and some strings...something...
     
  10. The only option for the GAS is to surrender to the GAS. Become one with the GAS and the GAS will be kind to you...and always check for resale value!:p

  14. If GAS is a problem for you, I could be Texaco! I'm thinking of getting either
    1) a Peavey Millenium Plus 4 or 5,
    2) a B.C. Rich Mockingbird Deluxe 5 <satin black hehe>
    3) Spector NS-4 or 5 CRFM
    4)Peavey G-V
    5) Peavey Cirrus 5
    6)Ibanez BTB 405QM
    7)Carvin LB-75
    8)Spector NS-2000/5

    ANYONE KNOW OF ANY PRICES ON THE B.C. RICH?

    Thanks for the referral, while yes I think it is terminal, we in the staes may be on to something. I made myself the lab rat for my own clinical trial for GAS cure. Buy evrything.. then have to carry it by yourself. Cured my. I will be submitting this to the TB medical board for review.
