Anahootz Guitars, Guitars and more Guitars. (37) RE: Guitars, Guitars and more Guitars. 08 Feb 02

Aha, a fellow sufferer. You have contracted a form of MIAS known as GAS.

What's that? You don't know? You mean to tell me you have 7 guitars and haven't ever heard of M(usical) I(nstrument) A(cquisition) S(yndrome)?

Among the more advanced states of MIAS is GAS, or Guitar Acquisition states where much bluegrass is played, one can also suffer from MAS, or Mandolin Acquisition Syndrome. Funny, but one almost never sees the Banjo subsect of this insidious disease.

There is no known cure. Frequent massaging of affected areas with raw billets of quartersawn tonewood is the homeopathic treatment of choice, but the allopaths maintain that the only cure is to indulge in the sickness itself.

The only hope for you, sir, is to get thee to a luthiery!
