    Nobody? Really?

    Am I the only person here with a double affliction (UAS + GAS)?

    Nope. I'm probably the other end of the guitar spectrum. I still have the classical guitar I bought from Consumers Distributing when I was in high school in 1975. I just changed the strings last month
    Thinking I might pick it up again after getting interested in the ukulele.

    Started playing ukulele in the spring though and I just ordered my 3rd so I could play with a soprano, concert and tenor for size (entry level instruments) before I invest in anything expensive.

    My guitar stable is shameful. I own five, I think...and play one. All acoustics.

    Tanglewood TW-28SNQ (my first acoustic, started on a classical, which I no longer own.)
    Tanglewood TMO-10NC (my gigging guitar)
    Ashbury travel guitar (bought for a trip, played there, not since.)
    Blue Moon 12-string (went to buy a mandolin, came away with that as well.)

    And my 'baby'...a 1996 Guild A-25 I call Mariposa ('butterfly' in Spanish.) She's the one who gets played.

    Mahalo Flying V ukulele
    Ashbury AU-80 koa concert ukulele ('Paloma')

    I may own too many guitars.

    I have 8 Taylors alone as well as several (7) Martins, 2 Goodalls,
    2 Santa Cruz guitars, 2 McPhersons, a Collings, a Huss & Dalton OO, etc.

    Electrics? 7 Heritage guitars, 3 PRS, 3 Hamers, a Ron Kirn Barnbuster, 2 Teles, a G&L Trinity limited ASAT, a
    Gibson ES 137 custom and a Gibson ES 330 Historic Reissue, etc.

    The acoustics were purchased over the course of many years, the electrics were purchased over about 12 years with the exception of one of my tele's from 1980.

    Your not alone Allan. I currently own a 95 Gibson J-200, 2010 Gibson Robert Johnson, 70 Yamaha FG-180, 79 Yamaha FG-335, Carvin Nylon string Classical, 2 Fender Teles and a Fender Strat. When I got the UAS I sold a 90 Gibson Dove and 92 Gibson ES-335 Cherry Dot Reissue and 2000 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst to fund my uke purchases. I've had and sold more guitars over the years then I have listed above. I'm not real happy with myself for letting the ones I sold go for uke purchases but I can't change that now. I did just list 5 of my ukuleles on eBay just tonight because I've gotten back into the guitar and not playing much uke anymore. It was fun for a while but now the fun has worn off and I'm getting back to serious playing with my guitars.

    I am glad to see that I'm not alone But, I honestly thought that there would be way more "normal people like me" with the Double Affliction.

    I've got two acoustic guitars left of what used to be a handful. The Acquisition syndrome has gone completely to the uke side, but I used to have it with basses.
    Here's my bass collection:


    And I feel some serious GAS coming up for a Guild Starfire Bass...
