Easy now son. Quit acting like you're most independent, special adolescent among us. I had to buy my gear, which is why it's not top of the line, but I appreciate it more becuase it's earned.

I get the money from my parents but only after busting my ass working to make that money. I don't expect to just be handed a jackson dinky DK2M.

Go away. who are you to say that? The point of this thread is that the TS needs to know if we depend on our parents to buy all of our gear. It's depressing to see that a guy i know just goes out and BUYS a mesa boogie head at the local store with his parents money. You want a trophy to show just how goddamn ignorant you are?

A friend gave me the first guitar, my mom bought my second for my birthday, and uncle bought my amp (just a practice amp) for christmas, and my mom paid just 200$ for the third guitar for my next birthday, my mom bought me a hundred dollar case for christmas the next christmas. I've bought all my effects/cables/strings/stands/etc myself.

I am 15, and have been paying for nearly all my stuff (not just music related stuff) since I was about 11 or 12...

I bought everything myself!

Cry.

My parents don't buy me my gear, and I've been playing for 5+ years with honestly only about $600 in equipment total. Get a job like me, and get other hobbies like me, and waste all your money on impulse buying like me!!!!

I've bough all my stuff myself. Except my first acoustic and my first electric, and lessons of course. But I was 4, and 8 respectively, so I can't really buy my own gear.

Hey, if he wanted to know if we depend on our parents to attain gear, he would have put up a poll and asked how many UGer's buy their gear. Something like that. The thread title was "Am I the only one".

Trophies are a symbol of achievement. Ignorance is not something to which you award a trophy for.

I found that the manner in which you presented this "question" to be extremely self promoting. If you did realise that, then you would have called the thread something else.
#38
I bought all my own gear. I've told my mother not to worry about my last few birthdays and Christmasses because I don't need anything and she deserves to keep her money.
#39
yea, the reason i have pretty good gear is that i bought pretty much NOTHING but guitar stuff with my money. I havent gotten a video game in about a year. now im gonna try to trade in my epiphone for a strat.
