    I didn’t buy anything new for almost 10 years, but from being bored at home with this pandemic, I think I’ve bought 7-8 guitars in the last two months the :/

    I literally Reverb while I sleep. I wake up and check the feed throughout the night.
    Sleep-buying pedals and pickups.
    This past month I got virtually every JRAD pedal

    Had the itch quite a bit lately, it’s been 2 weeks, before that 4 plus months.
    I had my Kiesel DC600 delivered right after Christmas, then found an RG550 and then just grabbed a sweet, kinda rare RG2770z in trans red. when I’m NOT playing out, I tend to buy, sell, trade gear. When I AM playing out, I tend to downsize because I figure out what I need vs what I WANT.

    Sold everything except my Randall RM100 (yep, I sold a Rivera Knucklehead with British V30's - idiot) about 3 ears ago and bought my ESP Horizon and a little Fender Mustang IV. Used those for three years and didn't buy anything else (because I could not afford to).

    Fast forward to the present, I'm in a new job pissing my money up against the wall on cabinets, guitars, pedals...Lord help me (but actually don't).

    After getting the axe-fx II right when it came out, pretty much almost 10 years. I greatly regret getting in that hole.

    I lived 4 years in a place only with an acoustic guitar so besides strings I didn't buy any gear. It was a nice one though
