I never really considered myself a fan of the 6900. Since the "beginning" I had a DW002 and always preferred the bigger, "chunkier" Gs. I think the main thing that kept me away from the 6900 was the fact that EVERYBODY had them. Working around teenagers all the time, it seemed to be the only model G I would ever spot in public. Because of this I always found myself looking for something bigger and something that just isn't seen very often. But, the "modder" in me began to speak. What initially drove me away from the 6900 (the fact that there are SO many of them) is what has seemingl drawn me to them...purely by "accident," of course.
My G collection "started" when I received three Gs for Christmas a couple of years ago. Of the three, one was a 7900 and two were 6900's.
While my collection grew, I didn't pick up my third 6900 for another 6 months. And this one was purely by accident. I had originally bought it for my father in-law as a Father's Day gift, but he couldn't read it. So...naturally it became mine.
By this time I had at least 20-25 Gs and yet only 3 of them were arguably the most popular model, the 6900. I really don't know what happened, or when it happened, but recently I was organizing my Gs in their cases and I realized that 6900 had somehow become a prominent part of my collection. What was for a very long time only 3 somehow turned into this...
For some odd reason, the 6900 has now become my favorite "affordable" model. Sure, I'll always want to have a case full of Frogs, but in the meantime I just can't seem to stay away from these!
With all that said...let's see yours. Has the 6900 taken over the bulk of your collection yet??
