Gear Aquisition Syndrome or GAS as Thomas Smith of Across The Board calls it, is the affliction suffered by most musicians and musical gear afficionados whereby the purchase of a new instrument or tool to create, produce, or perform music is superceded only by the capacity of one’s wallet.
Case in point: newest GAS purchase – a sweet guitarele by Yamaha. This cross between a ukulele and classical guitar is tuned to third fret 3 capo guitar with nylon strings and the neck width of a classical guitar. Easy to pack and carry and play and hide and perform with on the fly…love love love this little thing….
