gear list in messages?

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious why some member list "my gear list" with anywhere from 10 to 50-60 different pieces of gear under each of their messages they post?

 

Not ridiculing or complaining about them, just don't understand what that's for and wondering?

 

Is that for people that frequently trade stuff or something?

Hello!

 

As this site is for guitar enthusiasts, it's no surprise that people being proud of their collection.

 

Also, it's a good conversation starter, if You find someone having the same instrument.

 

Cheers... Bence

Hi guitar_andy, I find the gear lists useful, especially if you are thinking of buying a new piece of gear, can always ask that person the pros and cons.

 

As for my own gear list it stops me from buying a duplicate lol!

 

kind regards, Emma:)

It's not a gear list, it's what ever appears in each members signature... What you have in your singature will automátically appear in what ever you post... You can turn off this option if you so desire… I only list my guitars. Why, because we like it…!

Be thankful that I don't list my gear [biggrin]

 

Exactly. Mine would be long, but guys like the Rev, and Retrosurfer and quite a few others have lists that would bog down the whole Internet! [scared]

Over at the MyLesPaul Forum I list my 3 electric "Gibsons" in my signature

But I'm with the others that if I was to list every piece of gear, Electric Guitars, Basses, Acoustics, Lap Steels, Keyboards, Organs, Amps, Drum machines etc. You'd be thinking to yourself WTF? is that a Reverb sales ad or what? Where? How Much??

It is neat to see what others have to strike up conversation over though!!

I'd be more impressed by someone's playing than by their collection.

...in my case you'd be more impressed with my collection..........and I don't have much... [unsure]
