  • What factors cause you to flip gear often?

    Just curious. A lot of guys, including me, are notorious gear whores who buy and sell constantly. What makes you get rid of gear on such a repeated basis?

        I don't flip gear often at all. No point fixing something that ain't broke.

          I am currently satisfied. I had to get rid of almost all due to money reasons but when things get better I will buy the same stuff I had because I was really satisfied then.

            I flip gear until I'm happy.

            At this point, I'm insanely happy with my gear. Especially the Bogner.

              A person can purchase a piece of gear thinking it may offer them what they are looking for from that piece, but after playing it for awhile, if it does not satisfy, then that is why I would sell it off and try something else.

              Only recently have I come to be satisfied with what I have finally arrived at.
              It would take something really special for me to buy different gear then what I already have, or just add to my current gear.

                Should have added the option "To keep up with whatever is popular on HCAF for forum cred/popularity".

                  FWIW, I don't flip gear very much. Once I buy it, I'll keep it unless it's a hunk of ****************.

                    I think a lot of it is limited money as well. If not, we would all keep and keep, and just keeping adding pieces. We only flip to fund new things.

                      I just like playing different guitars and amps. I don't flip effects much, since my tone is pretty organic (Guitar, Tube Amp Gain and the Truth), but I'll be buying new/different guitars and amps until the day I die. Acoustics, too.

                        I don't flip much any more but most of the time it was a "buy to try" kind of thing.
                        Most stores don't carry the stuff that's on EBay or in the forums classifieds.

                        Stuff like tht. if I could actually try some of this **************** before I actually bought it I would've never bought 1/2 of it in the first place.

                          My gigging gear is always at my jam spot and my "trying out" gear gets swapped out or sold. Cheers, Lucius
