    When i first found this forum there were acronyms i didnt know. GAS and NGD etc.

    Lately here a whole bunch of postings about SGs versus LPs versus Fenders etc. A whole bunch of anxiety and a wave of emotion.

    So let me toss in some new ones. Im a geek i cant help it!

    FONGTRA is Fear Of Not Getting The Right Axe. BAMGAYF is Buy As Many Guitars As Your Friends.

    FONG can cause one sleepless nights deciding between manufacturers and models. It has a simple cure but expensive get at least one of everything ( im looking at you arctic ). You really need SGs and LPs and 335s right?

    BAMG can cure that right you just need a friend with enough guitars.

    Following the BAMG cure can lead you to HSUTBAWGP Hiding Stuff Under The Bed As Wife Gets Pissed.

    HSUT can lead to HOISC Hanging Out In Strip Clubs.

    What do you people think this seems to explain a lot to me?

    I guess HOISC can lead to guilt and then buying Reverend guitars?

    Of course, I've been waiting for a couple weeks to find the
    perfect thread to post this new acronym on...

    thanks Grump, for supplying it.
