    That was a hit heard round the world...cutting back is no fun...I hope GAS-life picks up for you ( I do mean that seriously...fun should NOT be taken away from us).

    I thought I was done for a while. I had a bad buying experience with a Fender Vintera 50's Strat, so it went back and I just got in a funk about buying any guitars. Recently, the Vintera 50's Strat has been tugging at me. I'm holding out so far, but I can feel myself weakening.

    Dare I say, in my case, it is a permanent affliction.

    A follow up to my earlier post.
    I will share the results of my personal experience of GAS from 1997 up to 2017. That being said, I have sold about twenty guitars and one amp. 2DC5A001-CB17-4405-B1B6-2EFAD708094E.jpeg /ATTACH] B86240BA-E842-48FE-B933-E52ABB91DB24.jpeg
    I haven’t bought a guitar or amp in three years.

    I thought there was an unwritten law that said all SG’s have to be red!

    Friday I have into GAS as in gear acquisition syndrome. Nothing musical but with all the projects I have been doing I stepped it up on the sanding front. Bought the Festool RO90 Rotex sander. Using it on stairs and floors but it will be my got to polisher once I am caught up working. I still have no musical instrument drive. What I have keeps me plenty satisfied instrument wise. I would like some Meinl cymbals and perhaps I should say I had for those but not enough to jump, they are expensive. This tool when it comes to sander is pricey but replaces three other with this one. Sadly I was so excited to get it I used it way to much two days straight and now have a wrist is a wrap because I seriously over did it. Two days though I’ll be back at it! Gotta build those muscles up a bit more!

    Found a better vid so I changed to it.
