Your G.A.S list!

Hey!

I have a GAS list and I'm gonna tell you what it is, but first I'll tell you what guitars I have and what I use them for.

Gibson LP Traditional - Eb tuning normally. But for blues, rock and metal.
Fender Telecaster MIA - Blues, punk and rock & roll.
Fender Stratocaster MIA - (Depending on the pickups) Alternative, blues, everything.
Fender Telecaster Thinline 72 - My gigging guitar.
Fender MiM Telecaster - my old Tele
Squier Strat - The guitar I learn how to replace pickups etc.
A couple of Fender acoustics.

The guitars I want are:

Ibanez Jem - For the epic sweeps and beauty.
PRS Navarro - So pretty and I've always wanted a PRS.
Fender CS or Select - For the perfection.
A vintage Fender, 60s or early 70s - For the history.
Fender Telecaster Vintage Telecaster - As an eventual upgrade to the 72.
Gibson LP Custom - For the Gibson perfection.
Martin Acoustic - I'm unsure what model, but I'd like a good acoustic again, I haven't had a decent one in a while.
An SG - You gotta have an SG, no collection is complete without one!

I reckon that'll cost me around £15,000 and I'd like to get them all in the next 10 years, so that's one to two guitars a year. The vintage Fender will be the most expensive at around £5k, I don't plan to sell any of my current guitars so some will take some mighty saving.

I would like one or two this year. Maybe the Thinline and the PRS, but I also wanna get a newer bike so we'll see how it goes.

What about you? What guitars do you plan to get soon and what's high up on your G.A.S list?

I'm really bad for it. I don't have any willpower when it comes to guitars.

I've been listening to too much of the Allman Bros. I'm pretty convinced that I need a vintage spec Les Paul into a Plexi.

A Plexi you say? Well, why didn't you say....?

Expensive though. Can you get one in a combo?

They seem to make an Plexi inspired type combo.

http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-an...-2x12-Combo/MI4

Is that what you're talking about or what Plexi specifically?

Plexis on Ebay go for around $1200. I'm sure I can find a good clone for the $800 range if I search hard enough.


And to my edit, Tom: I figured I should tackle my plexi before I get an LP. If greg has any hot tips on some Tokais or Grecos, though, I'd be all ears.

Weird. At the moment I can't really think of a guitar need or want.
Just picked up an Eastwood 3P DLX and am blown away by its ugly-awesomeness.
I suppose I could use a Jazzmaster, but that GAS hasn't gotten me yet.
Then again, I was just laid off yesterday, so perhaps my GAS has taken a backseat to my intense drive to not spend money. Tricky.

Edit:
Current Gear:
MIJ Fender Jaguar
Gibson Les Paul Special DC
MIM Blackout Telecaster
Epiphone ES 339
Ibanez AM 93
Eastwood 3P DLX
Mosrite Celebrity III
Home-built Les Paul (P90/humbucker configuration)

A few acoustics and a classical guitar.

Some of those are incredible, some are run of the mill. Some are unknown quantities.

But now you have an idea of my post-lottery win plans...

Sort of nicely? I like to think I'm always nice!

That's a crazy list. Some stuff I've never heard of, so I'll be checking every link out.

Did you copy and paste that?

I tend to give in to my GAS at times when financially I really shouldn't, but I figure **** it, I could pinch every penny and die tomorrow and never get a chance to play sweet gear. I know thats terrible logic but thats what gets me through bad decisions. I finally got an Axe Fx II recently and that has helped my GAS a bit but Im still lusting after:

Current:
Gibson LP Custom
Ibanez S5470F
Ibanez RGA8
Schecter Hellraiser C-7 FR
Ace FX II (into to monitors)

Want:
Ibanez TAM100 (new Tosin Abasi Sig)
Strandberg CL7 (Chris Lecthford sig)
Mackie HD1521

Due to the fact they're incredibly rare, I was thinking of getting one of the guys at GB&C to build one.
