    Re: How many guitars do you own?

    5 electrics, one of which is in unplayable condition. All of them with some sort of a Floyd though, so one day I might decide to get something with a fixed bridge. But apart from the same type of bridge, all of them have different features which somewhat justifies their existence (except for the one is in unplayable condition, which is only kept because that was my first guitar that was good enough to keep around for more than a few months): bolt-on neck, thru-neck, active PUPs, passive PUPs, 7string, pointy shape, basswood, alder, mahogany, mahogany w/ash top... The only situation when I find owning multiple guitars unnecessary is when one has 15 completely identical LPs with different bursts. But other than that, if you have the funds for it and owning them gives you any sort of pleasure, than there is no such thing as too many. As I think of it, if the previous two conditions are met, even the 15 LPs in different bursts wouldn't be too many...

      Old shot of some of my Hamers. 4 of those are gone but trust me they were replaced by more.

      I always say, some guys have a hot rod, some guys have a boat, others have Ex-wives, me, I got some guitars. As was mentioned above, I have way to many and not enough.

              At the moment I'm selling just to buy parts enough to have two functional guitars remaining.

                    If I'd have hung onto all of them, 6. A PRS se, Les Paul classic, Gibson blueshawk(my first one), Mexican fender strat, samick LP, Epiphone LP tribute plus. The LP classic is the one i really miss
                    Epiphone Les Paul Tbte Plus (SD custom shop humbucker & SH2b neck)

                      When you've had budget guitars for a number of years, you may find that your old instrument is holding you back. A quality guitar can inspire you to write great songs, improve your understanding of the Gdim chord while in the Lydian Mode, cure the heartbreak of cystic acne--and help you find true love in the process.

                        Re: How many guitars do you own?

                        5 acoustics, 14 electrics, for a total of 19. I didn't include my 1 bass.

                        My kids are playing 2 electrics and 1 acoustic. Another acoustic needs the neck reset. Plus I'm selling 1 electric.

                        So that is not too bad.

                        Right?

                          I have to think hard for a second as I haven't been home since early September.. counting one I have onboard, and two up coming projects... That makes it seven.

                          I just cant settle with one. and because I built them, they have some sentimental pull on me.

                            4 of my guitars have sentimental value; 2 of my WIP guitars are gifts from family and the other two are my first one and my custom Warmoth strat.

                              I feel much better now, at 44, I no longer think I have a real problem. I guess I can seek therapy if I get to 68.
                              Do you have a variety or do you lean towards a specific type, mfgr etc?
