I don't know if it's an addiction, but it certainly fulfills a need. When I started, I lived and breathed guitar playing. From 16 up until about 26 when I started getting into software professionally. Even then I never event considered selling off my PRS or amps. Didn't really put any focus on playing though, was extremely busy keeping up with tech. Even landed a job writing music software and didn't make me want to go all in on guitar again. Until recently. Not sure what happened. Maybe it was finding this forum. Ya'll are a terrible bunch of enablers! I even started taking lessons to fill in the gaps. Or maybe it was the vintage guitar shop with the occasional PRS that's gotten me into it again. (BTW they have a certain braz neck PS in there right now if anyone wants a good deal, I can help. ) If it is an addiction, I suppose there are worse ones.
