What bass are you GASing for?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by FiveStringsNme, Aug 21, 2003.


  1. As always I crave a Wal which I'll never be able to afford for at least 5 years, and then I also have a touch of GAS for a full bodied Steinberger.........what about you guys?

    GAS- Gear Acquisition Syndrome! Man- I sure could go for a P bass Deluxe V... That whole green thing really gets me!
     
  8. I can honestly say I have no G.A.S. at the moment. I'm happy with the two basses I have. I suppose if I had a bottomless reserve of disposable income, I'd acknowledge my desire for a Fodera Vic Wooten bolt-on, or maybe a Sadowsky.
     
  9. GAS = Gear Aquisition Syndrom

    Although I am VERY happy with my Zon, I'd like to get a Fodera some day.
     
  10. I'd like a Sterling.
     
  11. I am on major GAS for a modern sounding bass with a cool wood top. and I think I might have found a cure for my gas in the way of a Peavey Cirrus. sure a nordstrand or benavente would be amazing but I just can't afford that right now. in the future that Benavente 51' p looks like it could cause some serious gas. that thing just has mojo coming off all over the place.
