just a quick question

people say they have bad GAS for something, say a pedal, or some people has a GASlist

i know it means they want it bad, but what does GAS actually stand for?

Gear Adquisition Syndrome

When you just want to buy, very common in guitarists

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

who thought of such a stupid phrase/analogy?

This must have came into style recently, i wasnt on UG for about 80% of '08 and it wasnt there in '07.

No, it's been around for a while, I've been hearing the phrase ever since I started surfing guitar forums which was back in 2000 or so.

yeah, it's been around as long as i've been on forums too (about 2005, i think? and no-one seemed to think it was new then)...

i remember there was an article on HC about, someone quite famous actually coined the term, i think, in a guitar player article. i forget who, unfortunately.

GTU was a site a lot like UG that I used to go to all the time back when I was starting out, stood for Guitar Tab Universe, there has got to be some older folks on this site that remember that site. It was fairly popular at the time, basically a site for younger players and beginners (with some older folks to provide guidance) as opposed to places like the LPF and HC at the time.
