G.A.S. Averted Again

Gear Acquisition Syndrome has been averted again. My local guitar shop got a used Fender Tele Thinline reissue with Bigsby tail piece in stock. I have really liked the look of these guitars, but haven’t played one in a while. So I picked it up, strummed it, played some blues licks with the song playing in the background of the store.

I didn’t like it.

The neck was huge. It felt really heavy for a “thinline.” The arm for the bigsby tailpiece fell in the wrong place for me. I just didn’t like it.

Whew. G.A.S averted…or was it?

Now I think that the few guitars I have found that I really liked the feel of, but didn’t get, are that much better. Now I’m feeling G.A.S. for gear that I have not pursued, but I know is still for sale.

Thankfully, I am in the middle of a big home improvement project and don’t have the time or energy (or funds) to pursue anything right now.

So I’m curious, how do you deal with G.A.S.?

  1. Work out how I could make one for myself and then, when I calculate the cost and effort, the feeling usually passes.
