I have severe GAS, so I have to buy a new guitar every year. Buy it when you need it.

it doesn't matter. if you want it and have the money, then buy it. i would buy a guitar the very next day after buying one if i had the money.

I got my first bass for christmas, then the following christmas I got my first guitar, then the next christmas I got my second guitar, then next christmas (last one) I got my third guitar (first 7 string) & now I'm trying to decide if I want a few pedals, a new bass, or a new guitar, or something totally unrelated to music...

...what?

I get gas sometimes, but I don't take it as a hint to buy a new instrument.

If you've got enough money for a 700 dollar guitar 4 months later, then wait a year or however long it takes you to save 1500 or so for your dream guitar-- theres not a whole lot of reasons to buy a decent guitar when you have the financial means to buy an incredible one, unless you just dont want to spend too much money.

I buy things in the order I need them.

So far it has been:

First Guitar (half paid for by my parents)
Bass Guitar
Second Guitar (xmas prezzie)
3rd Guitar (les Paul copy)
Sold the Bass
Bought a PC
4th Guitar (My US Strat)
Bought my second PC.

I bought an electric guitar for $200 in 2004
I bought an acoustic guitar for $70 in 2007

if I had the cash I'd have already bought something nice before making this past

If you want something, and have the money, then buy it. IMO no matter how good a musician you are, if you have a job, then you worked for the money to buy it, so you bloody well deserve it.

I really need a new acoustic. My acoustic was bought in like, 2002, and it's a First Act.

My electric is a special edition Stratocaster made in 2007, which is when I also bought it, and my bass is an Ibanez Jet King I got this year.

Wut?
You can shred on an acoustic guitar, I'm thinking that you just want the image.

When I realize I require something better to keep myself happy. I have my Gibson now, and I don't intend to get much else. I'll just keep upgrading amps.

Just get one whenever you are able to and you want one. There's no set criteria you need to meet in your playing in order to get a new instrument. I bought my Warwick as an investment, for example. It plays great, and will keep it's value, because it has a Custom Shop imprint on it. If I see another instrument I like, I'll go for it, if I have the means. Some collect stamps, some collect art. I intend my collection to be of isntruments.

You now that it's hardcore when you neglect the purchase of food.


As for myself, i own a Mexi Tele and occasionally get a hankering for something with humbucking pickups. However, i haven't bought such a thing - i've had the Tele for nine months and i've never once regretted choosing it. It boils down to how wealthy you are, and whether you're capable of using what you already own for fulfilling your musical needs. Certainly at my standard of playing (low) the Telecaster will do everything that i want it to.
Yes, I use a Squier bass.

I bought two guitars in a matter of weeks in the mid eighties. A '71 SG and a new Yammy RGX211. I sold the Gibbo about 5 years ago so I only had one electric then. Last year I got the 12 string and this year the Cort. Next year its a Les Paul type. No rules, no time line. Just what you need when you need it (and have money)
I pick up my guitar and play
