    G'day,

    Let's all speak out about what we have GAS for these days and why (although sometimes it's obvious)! Perhaps we could all help one another if we have had experience with the gear, or saw a good deal somewhere...

    If this thread has been done before, sorry, feel free to kill this one. I've never seen a general GAS thread, that's all.

    Me:
    - G-K MB150: I need a practice amp that doesn't suck
    - Akai Deep Impact: I need a synth pedal and I hate the Boss version
    - A good, powerful, light 2x10 combo: don't we all want something like that?
    - A good, powerful, light 1x15 cab to go with the above: Heh. Lights out, Mr. Guitar Player.
    - Seymour Duncans for my building project: That is, if it ever gets finished (pun intended).
     
  2. I know I shouldn't use foul language in mixed company, but, I'm right on the verge of buying a six string. Umm, er, I mean a regular six, like a Strat! :eek: The feeling's been coming over me for a while now. I just gotta play the blues. I haven't made up my mind 100% yet, but, I'm really checking out a Gibson Blueshawk. It looks something like a Les Paul body, only slimmer. They're at M/F. What really scares me is that many years ago, I almost bought a Tenor sax...

    SWR stack and some effects but that list is awfully lengthy. The SWR stuff includes a bass 350 head and a triad and a goliath jr.

    Current GAS whiffs:

    Gibson SG-I geetar (in the works via a trade)
    Johnson Resonator geetar (on the way - thank you, credit card!)
    Another Bag End S15-D cab (savings almost there, but not quite)
    Some kind of inexpensive 2X10 bottom to leave with my G-K 400RB at my buddy's house (suggestions? I mean CHEAP.)

    I'm a fan of headless basses, so if MusicYo starts importing the bass mini-V, I'm there - I've always wondered what one would be like with a custom P pickup arrangement.

    And, some day I'd like to begin accumulating bits for my planned Warmoth body / Moses neck headless.
     
  11. Oh, I haven't really given it much thought... but maybe...

    -Rickenbacker 4001/V63 or 4003
    -A nice six stringer
    -Marhsall 400+ amp
    -Two 410 cabinets
    -Boss ODB-3

    ...and that's it.
     
  12. where do you all get the money for this GAS? i'm having trouble affording a new set of strings!

    (current GAS; Thomastik Inkfeld Groundwounds, if they make them, and if i can get them here in the UK.)

    I just got a couple new basses to play with and I'm happy with my rig...

    Aha, I know what I'd really really really love:


    Music Man 5-string Sabre bass with wide spacing (nut width 1-7/8", 3/4" spacing at bridge).


    If I had that I could die a happy man. I'd even settle for a wide Stingray.
