    I am fairly new here and don't have a clue what GAS means (other than the literal).

    Could you please help?

    By the way, I can't play guitar, but have 2 Strats (1 Squier SE Strat, 1 Copy) and an ESP LTD. I am now lusting after an Affinity

    Does that mean I have GAS?

    I guess I have GAS then.

    It has been pointed out to me that I cannot play the guitars that I have, so why would I need another.

    But they are so pretty.

    Be glad you don't know what it is... because once you get it, you can't get rid of it.

    It's not how many you NEED, but how many you WANT!
