    I guess its a good thing. In fact I sold five awhile back. I think its been over five years sence I went this long. Maybe my gas is in remission.

    My last guitar purchase was in January, so you are a little ahead of me. Of course I am saving up for one--the GAS is real.

    It doesn't help that my wife just dipped into my discretionary spending account to buy a new recliner. Sigh. She *did* need it more than I need that Taylor.

    I have been on a tool kick lately. But in my mind that doesn't count because its job related. At least thats what I tell myself

    I've been buying a guitar every other day for two months, with an amp or pedal thrown in here and there. I've officially lost the battle with my gas. I think mostly I just need to start getting rid of some.

    It's been about a year for me, iirc, and I'm actually content, for now

    I haven’t bought a guitar since September 2018 haha I’ve had GAS over the time but been able to control it. Played some last night and felt disappointed with my ability (not played in about a year or two).

    I would be happier to buy if I had more ability, I wish I could, it would be nice to get a new guitar, been thinking of a HS Tele, maybe a CV70’s or a G&L ASAT Bluesboy. But my ability to play is disappointing me too much

    Over the last 40 years I've averaged 1 new guitar every 8 years, but only because I've bought two in the last 18 months. My next scheduled purchase is due in 2029, if I'm still around...

    I'm very happy and content right now with my guitar collection and seriously have nothing else on the horizon in mind.

    However, don't ask me about 80's era Ibanez 9 and 10 series pedals. The addiction is real :confused:

    I should be proud. I passed on a RED NC at SGW day before yesterday. I had the funds but between thinking it was @Eddie bidding and the upcomoing move, I passed. There's two blacks there now but each has some issues and I have a mess of blacks. Now an affordable white or SB, all bets are off, LOL.

    Since September 6 Gretsch, 3 Squiers and 1 Fender. But in retrospect it had been about 35 years since I had last bought a guitar. Feast or famine.
