Guitar Acquisition Syndrome: “it’s just an interesting psychological phenomenon!”

“GAS: it’s priceless”

That beautiful GA Yupangco Co., & Inc. Store’s Washburn Heavy Metal Series, WV40 Vindicator’s acquisition would have made a lovely addition to the collection.

But since the “priceless” had no “price” I just had to give myself a bit of advice, hoping this strange phenomenon will go into remission.

With a Custom-made one already done and next in line, still another one.

I was under the impression this GAS will soon be over and come to a conclusion.

“I was sadly mistaken!”

“GAS up!”

After having Yobz Tolentino’s “Axe” in my hands on my day of visit, talking to myself in my head before going to bed, I said “The GAS Must Be Crazy,” it’s here to stay, Mercy!

So after passing up a good one, and four days of acute GAS exacerbation, this GAS sufferer finally came to a decision.

“Never pass up a good thing!”

If thoughts of having no means and money at the moment is enough to stop ones case of GAS attack in its tracks, then that is so funny.

This affliction could not be contained in remission and eventually became a primary mission.

So the Piggy bank was emptied for every last coin and dime… coz’ I had to get me that “lovely and ‘pointy'” Dime.

"Touch down"

“Touch down!” Rain or shine I have to make you mine, you “Dime” so fine (Razorback Lightning “Dime” from Dean Guitars).

“Full of surprises have you up your sleeve Trooper!”

"GAS sufferer, more to say, have you? Try this on for size and 'May the force be with you' (Kzzt!)"

“GAS sufferer, more to say, have you? Try this on for size and ‘May the force be with you’ (Kzzt!)”

"Oh look Commander! An egg. Won't be long till this one will hatch and bring forth another bout of them "Wild GAS Chase!"

Guitar Acquisition Syndrome: “it’s just an interesting psychological phenomenon!

I thought this “GAS” case was about to pass and just about it, but after getting a hold of Yobz’s “Axe,” “I never heard the end of it.

Well, our GAS sufferer here felt he was so on top of it, however, this GAS is a “fiesty” one I admit it.

But, hey, who says we can’t have fun as we go on our next guitar hunt, in this insatiable desire to get the next one.
