According to the DSM-IV:
Instrument Aquisition Syndrome 305.8x
Specify subtype, Continuous, Episodic (Specify if there are no residual symptoms inter-episode) , Single Episode in partial remission, Single Episode in full remission. Other or Unspecified pattern.
.81 Disorganized Type
.82 Organized Type
.83 Guitar Specific
.84 Mandolin Specific
.85 Residual Type
All of these are well recognized by those of us in the mental health field and there is little that can be done with the exception of acquiring all the Lloyd Loars in the mandolin world and according to the Irish literature collecting all the Paragon banjos although the latter has not been through rigorous testing so far.
We are still looking for a cure so don't despair. In the mean time any suggestions will be welcomed.
