You know you're addicted to gear if you know more about the amps then the sales-clerk at your musicstore.


+1

Whats crazy is when know the years, history and prices of said years and you go over all of this with the sales rep when trying to purchase said item. And he looks at you with a dazed and confused stare and then says how in the hell do you know this stuff.

You know you are addicted to gear when you trade three guitars and three pedals for one sweet amp you know you will never see again. ?

I really do not know if this shows i am addicted to gear or if i am just crazy.
In the end i loved the deal though....

I've never met a sales rep that wanted to admit that I knew more about gear then he did because every last damn one of them will push their product over the competition.

You know you're addicted to gear when you're looking at pedals on the bay and buy something you've never been very impressed by or wanted that much just because it's quite cheap and you think "eh, why not?" Oh, and when you're moving to Uni tomorrow and this will cut into the food budget...

Sadly, it's when you already own several amps that cost over $2500 each, & you still crave a Tiny Terror, Night Train, or HT-5, & your wife has threatened to go "Lorena Bobbitt" on you if you spend another dime on gear.

Edit: Does anyone else find it extremely odd that MatrixClaw hasn't posted here yet?

+1 Gas is a horrible thing... Im the same way. I have all this stuff at the house and still want random stuff. Hell even after owning the ht-5 the day I was going to trade it in because I didnt need a 5 watt amp I saw the Night Train sitting there and im like uuuu ahhhhh must have. And I havent even played it yet, it just looked sexy and I wanted it because I didnt have it.

Well.....I PM'd him and IM'd him days ago and he has opted not to post or respond so he must be in remission. I feel for him.


MatrixClaw......if you see this please let us know you are still live and kickin'...




He posted on one of the other threads today but quickly disappeared.. I think he is pushing his trade o doom pretty hard over on HC and possibly other sites so he is circling that like a shark with blood in the water. Thats my guess anyway.

Doesn't surprise me with some of the guys I know who work at GC. I go to local places to talk about gear. I've met some really cool people and have even met Eric Johnson once.

you know your addicted to gear when all you want for your bday is to go to the music store just to play gear you can't afford.

you know your addicted to gear when you buy gear from interstate and ask your parents to pay for the shipping as your bday present.

you know your addicted to gear when the highlight of your bday was playing a mesa boogie triple rectifier for 20 minutes.



this was my day.

You know you are addicted to gear when...
You start buy guitar wall mounts to free up floor space for a second stack.
You take a 'sicki' day at work just so you can be home when your new amp arrives by courier.
You enjoy staring at large guitar photos more than Pr0n.
You clean your guitars and gear every few days.
You accelerate your car slower to save on fuel purely for the reason to add to your gear fund.

This threads pretty funny. Id be guilty of most of these.
Woot! New Zealand...

you know you're addicted to gear when you've been denied the Musician's Friend Platinum Card 6 times in the last 6 months only to go for a 7th try in October. Its even worse when you dont give a damn that getting denied so many times will ruin your credit.

you know you're addicted to gear when you can tell by listening to a recording what type of amp is being played, which brand of acoustic guitar is being played, which pedals are being used, and when you scour the internet for clues as to how close you were to all of those guesses

Im so guilty


You know when you are addicted to gear when:

1. All of your guitarist friends need your seal of approval before buying anything gear related.

2. You know the in's and out's of amps, know all the best bang for buck deals. But never have any money to buy anything and are stuck with all your old crappy gear.

3. You have a great knowledge of gear and spend so many hours researching what to get next.. so much infact, that the other guitarist in your band is far far far better than you at playing guitar, but knows nothing about gear

Guilty of all three.

when you realize that one amp doesn't get mad at you if you play with another one for a while.

or yell if you stumble in a little tipsy...


or if you tell your friends how great this other amp is...


because it loves you...
