Should a strongly addicted man seek for help? Is it life-threatening condition? In a guitar world GAS is a serious case. But is it dangerous? Should I cure it? GAS stands for Guitar Acquisition Syndrome or Gear Acquisition Syndrome. Basically, it means that you're always buying new stuff. An old joke says: - how many guitars is enough? - one more! But there's something into it. Every guitarist and guitar collector wants to get "yet another axe", "yet another overdrive", "this beautiful pick", "oh, come on, that's a legendary instrument, I'll bring it back to life".... Every guitarist's (and collector's) partner knows that it's impossible to stop it. There's a saying: the more you eat, the more appetite you get.
