Does anyone else suffer from Banjo Acquisition Disorder (BAD) an incurable syndrome that can be treated only by further purchases of high-quality banjos? I want to start a support group where one introduces her or himself by saying "My name is _______and I buy banjos. How many do I need? One more than I have.Perhaps there is some sort of federal grant e could apply for or, at least, get Medicaid to pay for our treatment.

My name is TrueNorth53 and I buy banjos. I was so relieved the day I discovered that I was not alone in the world and others have BAD. I currently am delusional enough to feel I have all the banjos I need, but yet check daily CL, E-Bay and BHO for an undiscovered treasure. I do not want government aid for treatment, I just want low interest loans for more banjos. Perhaps Fred Thompson or Henry Winkler could do public service ads for some type of reverse mortgages on current banjos to perpetuate the banjo economy.

My name is Robert, I buy banjos. I just bought one last week but in order to do so I I traded in two of lesser value. Having reduced my banjo stash now I suffer from Banjo Separation Anxiety (BSA). Most people cannot understand these syndromes. If you get a new puppy and he destroys your house when you are at work the vet will tell you he has separation anxiety because you left. In other words, it is your fault that the mutt chewed up your leather recliner and peed on the oriental carpet while you were working--probably to pay the vet bills. Yet when I suffer from BSA society treats it as a character flaw, some sort of moral failing. It is just not right.

I used to have BAS, but may not have reached the BAD level of sickness. I am now at about step 6 and it is under control. Partly because I have too many, partly money. there are still a couple I would like to have, oh crap.... brad

We call it BAS, banjo acquisition syndrome because if you're in denial, it's not a disorder.

I have BAS and I've got it BAD!

I recently traded in two banjos in need of repair, an old Fairbanks and an old Stewart, as a down payment on a Carl Arcand Tubaphone reproduction so my stash has been reduced by a total of one. This is the banjo I always dreamed about. The new banjo is so good that I am coping rather well but when I look at the blank space on the wall where the old broken ones were hanging I get pangs of BSA (Banjo Separation Anxiety). Will it never end?
