Lol, I have yet to attain enlightenment.
I have been on an epic gear quest since I decided to get more serious with my guitar playing about a year ago. My playing has improved, but not at the pace that I am acquiring more gear! At some point I will move past this, but at the moment I'm still enjoying the process, bank balance be damned!
Now, if someone of you would just hurry up and buy my old stuff, I could get on with my efforts to buy more new stuff.
