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

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!!

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...

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..."

You know you're addicted to gear when you've called in sick to try out a new arrival at a guitar store (or amp you just got)

You know you're addicted to gear when you prefer amps to guitars.

You know you're addicted to gear when you skipped class, drove home from college over an hour away, to pick up your new guitar.

You know you're addicted to gear when you've had more guitars than girlfriends

you know you're addicted to gear when you care about your gear more than you care about your girlfriend

also, when you tell your girlfriend "tits or GTFO" because you're busy playing your new guitar
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I used to live across the street from my GF, many times she came over, knowing I was playing guitar, with the intention of distracting me out of playing. It never worked.

In my defense I was always pissed when I'd stop playing and call her and she'd be at work or something. Doh!

Edit: Also I bought her a guitar for her last birthday. A sweet ass Takemine Jasmine (which are GREAT for the money BTW.) She doesn't play so I told her she has 6 months to show interest or its mine... That date is coming quickly.

When your wife comes in your guitar room to ask you a question and you know shes there, your looking right at her and she knows you know shes there. And you see her lips moving but yet you just dont stop playing. And you only stop when you can hear her screaming at you over a 120 watt amp set at 4 to turn the sh!t off because she has to ask you something. So you stop playing only to listen to 3 words and start up again aaaaaaannnd the cycle continues until you get pisst off at her for rudely interupting you during your playing time during her talking time.

Dammit wives never show teh boobies. Boobies would have handled that situation perfectly. Although, in those cases I usually end with a quick ditty about whatever is causing me to stop playing;

You know you are when....... I start lying to my GF, telling her im going to my brothers house only to really be going to answer a craigslist ad and buying another amp. Then sneaking it in at night when she's in bed. Then, she comes into the guitar room and asks what happened to the one that said Marshall on it? Is that another Mesa? HUH? You start to trip over your words when you realize she does pay attention and "bj week" turns into go F yourself month............

Haha 'bj week.' God I love/hate that week. Luckily my money has nothing to do with hers, but that is probably drawing to a close. But 'I can't afford to take you to dinner' doesn't work so well when you just dropped $1000 on an amp... I tried. Not to mention my other *mmhmm* not-so supported purchases.


IP - I've had this argument with my gf a few times...

"I tried to talk to you and you just kept playing"

"Well why didn't you pull out your boobies?"

"You were busy, I didn't think that would matter."
