I went nearly 8 years without buying or selling gear. Once I found eBay and guitar forums online I started a long buying and selling habit that’s been ongoing since 2005. I think my longest break since then was around 1 year. My last gear purchase was a PRS Silver Sky around 6 weeks ago.
After 4 years of not buying anything I gave in and bought a Miku of all things.
hours. because my will is strong...Tycobrahe Pedalflanger...
Just guitar gear or music gear in general?
I bought my last guitar in 2001. My 2 favorites does the job and they are still staying with me since 1995 and 1997. The only thing is on the amp side where the bits started to show up and I got to have some great one to play through. Still its old school tubes as that what it became on the quest for right tone.
Otherwise I am not really gear hunting as I have an idea of what I really want and then it stops after that is completed. I do not really have big interest in effects or other guitars at all.
Just came off a 3 year break & am on a bit of a bender.
if I count in minutes, over 9000
I have non-specific GAS for something I know not what. There is no worse form of GAS.
Me too. Tends to happen when I'm not musically busy. Current project is just getting off the ground working through originals and perfecting covers. My church gig is only once a month. Still, I find myself wasting time perusing random Reverb listings.
Not sure the longest, but I'll go with around 1 month. I'm usually at least buying picks and strings every month. But I've bought and sold a bit of my gear and I've only been playing for 2 years.
My longest has been well over a year. At the moment I tend to be every 6 months or so when it comes to buying guitars. Then about every 1 or 2 months when it comes to buying pedals.
I do find though that the longer I don't buy anything, the more difficult it is to put my hand in my pocket and start buying again.
Not affiliated but this thing just calls to me

I just bought a guitar the other day. Yet another sg, the 4th one ive bought. Gonna hold onto this one hopefully, because everytime i sell one i wish i had another in short order
Probably 5 years-8 years of being mostly inactive. A better poll would be how long while still actively playing in the TPG era. For that I would say 2019 has been the least active gear wise, since I got back into playing in 2011. Picked up a couple of simple items that allow me to pick up and play when I want without a lot of fiddling - good enough tones. Told my self I was content, but also, there were some money problems most of the year and we ended up in a lawsuit. Now that's almost over, looks like we are settling and going to be money ahead. Will see if the GAS returns when there is disposable income again.
Went nearly a decade when I was playing out a few times a week while working nearly full time and/or full time student. Turns out a Strat, 335, 175 and Boogie covers all the bases.
Having more time and more $$ leads to GAS.
From age 16 to age 43 I dont think I bought anything but strings and picks. Then updated my old Kramer with new pups. Age 43 bought a new Ibanez RG652AHM. Played like crazy for the next 2.5 years. Then at the end of 2018 went a bit overboard. Fender strat, Mustang bass, too many pedals and a Z Cure. I really need to stop. I have one more guitar on the way and I'm going to stop. Or maybe a few more pedal and one more Amp, but only if the economy stays good.
I definitely have a problem with buying gear.
My goal for 2020 is to purchase zero music related gear. In the meantime, in going to try and do YouTube reviews on everything I own. All 40 pedals, 10 guitars, 5 amps, 8 microphones and other things.
Wow....this thread is over 5 years old and still the overwhelming response to the poll is over 1 year. I'm pretty embarrassed to admit that I just can't make it that long
Did not buy or sale from January 2016 until about 1 month ago. Sold a few things and bought the following:
1) Two Rock Bloomfield Drive - 2/12 cab
2) Two Rock Kimock Sig - 1/12 cab
3) Fender CS Masterbuilt ‘62 Strat Jason Smith
It’s been a bad run
Well, when you finally decide to pull the trigger, you go big!!! Congrats
