You know you're addicted to gear when you buy pedals to make your guitar sound BAD.

... you consider a trade that will cost you out of pocket, when your original reason for selling was lack of funds.

You know you're addicted to gear when you've actually spent the last hour and a half watching an ebay listing which you're winning, even though you have a max bid set up... Only 10 minutes now!!

EDIT: Crap, I lost...

You know you're addicted to gear when ...

When buying new gear comes before actually learning how to play the gear your buying in the first place

When Guitar Center employees know you by name. You know you have an slight addiction. But when every guitar related store in a 50 mile radius knows you by name. Your a full blown junkie at this point

When you start trading none gear related items around the house for new gear.

When you contemplate becoming a one car family just so you can fund a Diezel Herbert

When you buy and trade and flip so much, that you end up getting then getting rid of the same damn model of pedal over and over.

Then the 4th time it happens, you realize it's the exact same pedal that you started off with...

You know you're addicted to gear when your guitar teacher yells at you for buying expensive **** after only 7 months of playing.

You know you're addicted to gear when you care more about what you play through than how you play.

You know you are addicted to gear when you wake up in the hospital after a 6 month coma to find that all the owners of your local music stores and all the online vendors have sent personally signed get well soon cards to you at your hospital room.

You were in a coma for six months? Did people take all your ****? That Seinfeld episode has me terrified.

Yup, it can surely happen, especially with low-run, serial #'d boo-teeky stuff.

I've had a love/hate relationship with Skreddys, and I am now reunited with my first screwdriver.

Le sigh... I think it's gonna get traded soon AGAIN, though. Just can't seem to get my head into it when I've got it, then I just keep thinking how good it sounds when I don't.

It's also a bad sign when you see other pedal geeks' boards and say "hey, I recognize that old tonebender/fuzzface/et al..."

...when you buy a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe ($500 new) and a Vox 2x12 AC30 ($750 new), even though you have an Orange Rockerverb 50 half-stack and another 1x12 AC30 back at home.

You know you're addicted to gear you gas for the same guitar you have, but only because they brought out a new finish or when you have more packs of guitar strings then packs of condoms

When you justify that having 10 bucks in your pocket is like having a coupon for $10 off. So out comes the credit card
