When GAS hits and I think I want to pick up another instrument, I try to hold off for a few weeks and either the GAS goes away or it changes to something else. I know I don't need anything else. I have a lot of nice stuff and should be happy with it (and I am). I guess the key is to keep busy and not hang around here too much. Practice, gig and do whatever. I think that instrument and amp makers - especially the boutique ones - should be paying TalkBass commission or something. I have bought 6 basses since I obtained my "dream bass"!
