After a few decades of playing, well over 1000 gigs, several boutique amps, countless pedals, several guitars, etc., etc., I've reached a point where I care less about the gear. I'm not sure what happened, but it's a great feeling. I've focused a lot more energy on improving my playing and I'm doing more recording and writing than I ever have (thanks in part to the pandemic, of course). My playing has advanced and I'm playing better than ever. I get way more satisfaction out of that than buying some new gizmo. I do still look at gear and there will be things in these forums that catch my eye, but I evaluate my needs based on whether or not a given piece of gear will be a useful and valuable tool. After all, any guitar/amp/pedal/whatever is just a tool to make music. As the saying goes, the tools don't make the carpenter. The carpenter needs a good suitable set of tools, but there's a point at which that doesn't matter.
