    You know you're addicted to guitars when...

    You know you're addicted to guitars when:


    - You turn the bathroom tap and listen for a change in pitch as you turn it.

    - Upon hearing someone say "We'll cross that bridge when you get to it", you imagine minature people clambering over one of the bridge saddles on a Fender Telecaster.

    - You're with your friends talking about the recent shark sightings and your mind keeps coming back to the inlays in the neck of your Ibanez.

    - You're writing a Christmas card to Mr Floyd down the street, and write "Mr Floyd Rose" on the envelope by accident.

    - You mention breaking a g-string without thinking about what you're saying. People get the wrong idea, but you meant the 3rd string on a guitar.

    - You hear a pinging sound and instantly think your string retainer's broken, even though your guitar is not with you.

    - You think Maple Syrup is meant to be used for cleaning maple fretboards.

    - You're writing a Christmas card to your neighbour Les, and write "Les Paul" on the envelope by accident.

    - If anyone mentions anything being overpriced you automatically think "Gibson guitars".

    - You spend your spare time making picks out of ice-cream container lids.

    - You've made so many picks out of ice-cream container lids that you've run out of lids and start making them out of milk bottles.

    ....your friend tells you he was in a Fender bender - and you think /Stratocaster jam.

    ...you get pissed off every time you hear someone tell you they are good at 'Guitar Hero'

    ...you REALLY AND TRULY consider dumping your girl when she's mad at you for rehearsing with the band.

      I cut all my old and expired credit cards into different size plectrums. Is that normal?

    - Your standard response when anyone asks you want you want for Christmas/birthday is "Guitar Center/Sam Ash/Long & McQuade/etc. gift cards."

    - You have the websites for local used guitar shops bookmarked in your browser.

    - You have more than 4 guitar magazines in your bathroom.

    - Your baby's first word is "Tele."

    - You own one of those pick-punch gizmos you can get on ThinkGeek.

    - You actually canceled a credit card so you could turn it into guitar picks (see above).

    - You compared your SO to a PRS 10-top.
