I'm a sick sick man - mentally

Recommended Posts

I have a horrible case of GAS and my tastes lean towards the expensive and I'm thinking about joining GAS anonymous. I need help. Does anyone know the national GASanon hotline? There must be a treatment for this. I could use new carpet in the basement, or some new furniture in the family room. There are things that I could use the money for that would make more sense. Is there a Betty Ford GAS treatment center?

Well thanks. I'll save you a bunk in the treatment center once I find one to check into. Hope they have guitars there. Doh!! (slaps forehead) There I go again. :freak:

Don't look to me for help. As I mentioned in a previous post, if it has lights, buttons or dials, I want it. If it has shiny new strings and a sweet tone, I want it. If it has two twelve inch speakers and a beautiful set of tubes, I want it.

 

You'd understand where I'm coming from, if you could see the drool running down my face, right now.

Actually, I got a killer deal on it. The MSRP is $4,795.00, the usual GC selling price is $3,499.00 including a standard Humicase. They had this one for quite a while and needed to move it, so they were ready to deal. I inspected it very closely for signs of neglect (symptoms of low humidity, rough handling, etc.) and could find nothing at all wrong with it. I struck a deal for $2,340.00, including an upgrade to the Humicase Metro and including taxes....out the door.

Deep cleansing breath.... hold.....

 

 

release.

 

I walked into GC on Saturday, and walked out with only $67 worth of damage- a new mic (which they tried to ignore their large "manager's special" sign right at the end of the counter!) and a couple banana plugs. The bass department held nothing of interest to me; I did play a nice Takamine jumbo that started to tempt me and a nice 12 string Alvarez. But I held it together, even in the midst of the "last chance for 0% financing" onslaught.

 

You can do it. Remember the breathing. But don't turn blue.

 

Or ignore me, and post pics tomorrow.

 

Joe- you didn't even say what is causing the GAS; therefore it must be all in your mind. Breathe deep...

Congratulations!

Those are wonderful guitars! I visit one at my local GC every so often. Beautiful warm tone with nice ringing trebles and really articulate voice seperation.

 

Have you recorded anything yet?

I mean, junkies regularly lie, cheat and steal to support their drug habit. But have you ever heard of anyone robbing a bank to support their GAS?? :D

Well, no. But how many of us have driven around in $500 cars with $6000.00 worth of guitars in the back seat? :D

I see there's no GAS shortage around here. :eek:

 

Besides the irresistable American and vintage stuff, this high quality yet low $$$ gear coming out of China right now is just causing GAS explosions all over.

Just a pinch between the geek and chum
