  • How many guitars do you own?

    The reason I ask, is I own 8, and I feel like I own too many to bond or give attention to one or a few. I feel a bit compelled to sell a few, even though I don't want to. I guess I like the variety. I'm curious about how many guitars you guys own and how you feel about the "stable".

    I'm also like this with bikes, as mountain biking is my other passion. Currently I own 3 bikes. All for different purposes.

    I have 4 wat gives. It's plenty. More would just be for fun with more pickups and not really for playing.

      I've got quite a few.

      3 electrics, 1 acoustic, 1 bass guitar, 1 tenor guitar, and 1 mandolin.



      Truth be told, I use two of my electrics and my acoustic 95% of the time, and could happily live without the rest.

        Are we counting the ones in playable condition, or the ones awaiting repairs/mods to be complete?

          Too many and not enough.

              I've been down this path before. What I have I cannot part with. All of them have a special meaning, though they are just guitars.

              Martin D-28 Acoustic - bought with my share of Uncle's estate after he passed.
              Kramer Baretta w/ Kine NYC graphic - has Twin Towers in the graphic, 'nuff said.
              Dean Chicago Standard Series ML - gift from my wife, plays and sounds fantastic.
              Old Warmoth/Chandler Frankenstrat (Franky) - my first really solid and well built electric. 26 years old this November.
              New Warmoth Frankenstrat - a recent built that mirrors the old one in wood specs and most of hardware. different electronics.
              PGK SG Junior - another build that I did in 2011. one of my favorite guitars ever.
              Les Paul Traditional Pro - not really mine yet, but will be. been "borrowing" it for quite a while now.
              Sterling SUB Ray4 Bass - beat out all the others on the wall between 3 different shops for what I was looking for.

              I could probably add in my daughter's Ibanez Talman TMB-100 bass that she doesn't have time to play right now (Marching Band season) and her Silvertone Strat electric (not bad with upgraded tuners and nut for some stability).

                This.

                I have 7. I sold two recently and plan to sell two others.

                I am trying to have fewer, higher quality ones I actually play.

                  4 guitars and 1 bass, but I only play 2 guitars and the bass regularly. The other 2 just sit in cases and are for sale.

                  The reason I go for 2 guitars is to keep one with higher output pickups in D standard and another with PAFs in E standard. That covers everything for me.

                  I'll drop the bass to D standard and I'm uncivilized enough as a bass player to not care about the setup.

                    At the moment,...

                    2 acoustics with 1 more on the way
                    5 electrics with 3 for sale - keeping an LP and Tele, all I ever really needed

                    But I've probably cycled through at least 20 others

                          I have ten guitars and seven basses. I built three of the guitars, and five of the basses.

                          I used to have more, but I sold them.
