    It took me 8 years and 11 months.

    In that time I've bought and sold more guitars, amps and pedals than I can remember. I tried to list them all out, but gave up as it was just too much effort.

    Then I realized something interesting: I now have LESS gear than I did before joining TGP in 2006. Substantially less.

    I'm down from seven guitars to just FOUR guitars, three of which I've had since before TGP.

    I'm down from three amps to just ONE amp (1974X), which I've owned since before TGP.

    I'm down from twelve pedals to just ONE pedal (Teese RMC10) that I picked up last October (first discovered it here on TGP).

    I do most of my playing these days through a Fender Mustang Floor into an IK Multimedia iLoud studio monitor. I've got about $500 invested in that entire rig.

    Not sure what that says, but it's definitely been a journey.

    Cheers!

    I'm thinking my first 1000 took closer to eight months.

    After 1000 posts you contributions are no longer invisible.

    It's a lonely road.

    And for my 1,001th post, let me just say that I'm on the verge of selling the amp and the pedal and just playing with the $200 mass produced digital pedalboard and $300 mass produced studio monitor.

    My guitars, on the other hand: the cheapest is about $2,000. The most expensive about twice that much. I hope am still TGP worthy. :hide

    These guys with 10,000 posts need to take Frank Zappa's advice on how one should balance their guitar playing vs. talking. ;)
