I also confess to being a gear hound.

It happens to be my main hobby.

I just can't pass up a killer deal on good quality gear.

Case in point, I picked up a '94 Fender Jazz V (5 String) Plus Bass last week for $203.99 plus tax at a pawnshop. They were asking

I don't even really play bass, but that was to crazy of deal to pass up.

I have 2 other 4 string basses in my collection, a
'74 Fender Jazz and a '90 MIJ Fender P-Bass.

I guess I just wanted to add something different to the bass mix.

Here's some pics.

We have been packing to move over the past month or so. I went through my storage bld. yesterday and today and I found things I had forgotten I had. I'm renting a 15 ft. Uhaul tomorrow just for my gear at home and my storage bld.

If I like it, and I can afford it, why the hell not?

I'm effectively a shut-in, I don't spend money on anything else past basic "don't die" stuff, and well, I am not getting younger and will never be "well" again.

I don't consider myself a gear hound, but I have tons of gear. I'm gonna have to have a serious talk with one of my personalities, because one of us is delusional...

BF66Prince - Nice!

NOTE: It's not buying so much as that I'm constantly LOOKING at gear online and in stores.

Of course I do buy and trade gear frequently but . . . . (:oD

My hunting days are over. Lack of funds now that I've left the land of overseas big $ paychecks. Priorities have changed, too. But I continue to "shop" on-line and on the pages of VG magazine. There never was a need but it's in my blood.

NOTE: The guitars I bought this year were mostly via trades and trade-ins, I didn't spend much actual money. Same thing with amps.

Yeah, I am a member of the club.

Bought two guitars this year and rescued two nice mod platform guitars from the dumpster (see the Lefty forum) for the price of shipping.

These days I’m selling very little. Earlier this year I sold off a Celestion G12H I had hanging around. I might have a couple pedals to sell. Dunno. Thinking about it.

I’m not getting any younger. And I’m not doing any harm to my financial situation. In fact, I’m doing all the right things.

And I’m married to a woman who truly supports my interests out of love.

Cameras, guitars and guns. These three things I enjoy. :-)

I guess sometimes it is more of the hunt than the catch at times.

I'm not really sure what's happening in my part of Texas, but it doesn't seem like it's in touch with the rest of the world.

Just for reference, here's are the deals I've picked up in the last 2 years.

How could I not keep buying guitars?


$500 - '75 Fender Strat
$550 - '81 G & L F-100 II
$230 - '00 Gibson Les Paul Special Lite
$325 - '90 Fender Strat Plus
$435 - '07 Fender '57 AVRI Strat
$438 - '89 Fender Standard Strat
$280 - '07 Fender L.E. "Reverse Headstock" Hendrix Tribute
$600 - '07 Gibson SG-3 L.E. #006
$300 - '03 Epiphone Elite Les Paul Custom
$435 - '01 Gibson Les Paul Jr.
$225 - '94 Fender Jazz V (5 String) Plus Bass ( just picked this up last week)
$300 - '65 Gibson LG-O
$147 - '98 Yamaha LL-11
$500 - '11 Fender Telebration 50th Annv. Tele
$1400 - '83 Gibson ES-335 Dot

BF66Prince - Wow, impressive list of hunting trophies!

And some of the prices you paid are just insane.

TODAY'S VICTIM - A used Orange Rockerverb 50 MKII heard in Limited Ed. white tolex.

I was trying NOT to love this head when I went to try it out, but it was exactly what I was looking for. Great tone both clean and dirty and ultra versatile. Sounds killer with both single coils and humbuckers.

ps - I'm going to be playing in a 2nd band that plays hard rock/punk/metal style original music and "NEEDED" something to suit that type of rock.

Congrats 5Strats.

I bet that amp sounds great.

I don't have any Orange amps in my collection.

I may have to look into that amp to see what all the fuss is about.

Congrats and Enjoy your new amp.
