    How do you know when you're past the Gear Acquisition Syndrome stage, and onto the "Hey, I might actually get that" stage? I've got such terrible GAS right now I might explode!!!;)

    When you are dead. Seriously. Even if you have the cash for what you want now...there is no known cure for GAS. Some have joined GAS anonymous...and I think they may have a twelve step program.

    The only thing that is known to work for sure is to give up playing and listening to music entirely...which for most, is not an option. I know, I tried.

    "Hi, my name is sundogue, and I have GAS."

    My GAS has inexplicably gone away - I'm scared. I don't know what to do. Right now all that I want to do is play and try to find a gig and then once I get a regular gig going, see what else I need for gear. I'm getting money saved up for it too - whatever it is that I find I need (probably a head) ...but as far as random wants and desires - I'm virtually GAS free. What's wrong with ME?

    All it takes is a visit to a local store and seeing something there you never knew you needed...and still don't need...but yet you feel the need. Ya know?

    Don't fight it...it will will return. :)

    I went to the doctor for my GAS. He said lay off the dairy.


    I want a new amp. 100$ away from what I want:)

    Wouldn't it be more of a twelve string program ? :bag:
