    I am done with guitars for a while, but not pedals or amps, but need to let a few more months go by before I dive back in.....
    Vaughn, I understand.

    I’m done with guitars, amps, and pedals. I’m in selling mode. Ok, after that I’m getting a Kemper. And that’s it! I’m almost 100% sure..

    Must focus on music theory.

    I always thought it was more specific - "Guitar Acquisition Syndrome". Learn something new every day :rolleyes:

    Probably is but I hate to limit myself to just Guitars! Things might be getting worse. I looked at a total of 754 594’s the other day on reverb.

    You probably shouldn't buy more than 2% of them. But if you get one, it's harder to resist the rest. They're like Lays potato chips, but only if you're old enough to remember the commercials.

    Don’t feel bad, I own two 594’s and still look at new listings of them on reverb at least twice a week.
    I’m GASing for something hollow.

    Sometimes it's not even the guitar or piece of equipment I really get excited about...it's the high I get off of just getting something "new" and watching it move through it's paces on the provided shipper's tracking info.

    There's nothing like the feeling of anticipating the arrival of a new toy.

    I like the expanded definition because I am done with guitars for a while, but not amps, profilers or pedals......

    Fortunately for me, they all US based so wouldn't buy anyway - too much shipping, handling, import duty etc on top of the prices. That being said, the PS Hollowbody 594 is stunning and, if I hadn't just emptied my bank balance on my Hollowbody II, would be 'similar' to my next guitar purchase. I am glad they have decided to introduce this as a Core and almost dreading seeing a Fire Red Burst HB594 as that would really cause my GAS to flare up...

    I am hoping that NAMM 2019 doesn't have a lot of 'Must haves' - its bad enough if it has a lot of desirables that I may want but can justify waiting for finances to recover but something I need (whether I really need or just really want a lot) is not good for GAS at all. I am almost dreading the next few weeks.... :D

    Bastid!

    I mean, thanks!

    I mean, I want to see what's there, I just don't want to want everything I see.

    I don't have major GAS for anything but a double neck. I have minor GAS for a few other guitars. I heard Tosca and I are going on a no guitars for 2019 mission. No in this case means less than 6 each.

    :p

    GAS...
    The beautiful mistress we cannot leave.
    The fact that I am less than two weeks in with my 594 Soapy, but still lurk Reverb and everywhere else just kind of says it all.
    :oops:
    But... that soapy sure makes me happy!:D

    The odds of either of you going a full calendar year with out buying a guitar are miniscule. The odds of both of you doing it in the same year - well, let's just say when that happens, Heather Graham and I will call from our palatial tropical estate to congratulate you.

    My balance is fine - I hardly ever fall down. My fundage, on the other hand...
