    Re: How many guitars do you own?

    I currently sit at 76 but it seems I'll grow back to 85 within the next 12 months. I build my own guitars, so it's supereasy to kill time and build guitars simultaneously. What else should I do in my spare time? Have a meaningful conversatin with my spouse?

      Most are kept in different tunings or configurations. None of them are stock except the 2 PRS Mccarty 594ís.

      I have one question really, storage must be a PITA right?

            The even BIGGER problem is CASE storage!

                  absolutely. I regret SO MANY choices but don't wanna part with the majority of the guitars because of... reasons.

                  Oh: I only have cases for my acoustic guitars and just 1 or 2 electrics. Nothing more than that.

                    Total 22. Three acoustics and 19 electrics. Only 1 acoustic needs work. Everything else gets played depending on how fresh strings are and what sound I want

                      7 giggable electrics
                      1 acoustic
                      1 bass
                      2 sort-of-playable electrics that never leave the house (includes my first-ever guitar)

                      There is some duplication (i.e. 2 LPs, 2 Teles) but those are my faves so I have to live with it

                        Well, I own over 50 and it's not quite enough to satisfy my GAS.

                        70 or 80 might be a good number.

                        On second thought, I guess 90-100 would be a better number.

                          I've always been confused by the huge numbers. Is it purely a collecting thing? When you get up past 50 guitars, assuming you play a different guitar each day you're only using each guitar seven times a year. How do you develop a bond with an instrument like that?

                            Good question.

                            I guess you don't develop a bond with every one of them. At least not equally. But I do have bonds with all of them and strong bonds with 80% of them. They're all different so it's not redundant. Not like having 50 LPs, or 50 Strats. That would definitely be a collector sort of thing...no way to bond to all of them that are so similar. You'd certainly have just a few favorites.

                              I like "Explorer" guitars so quite a number of my guitars are that shape. With as many as I have there are a fair amount that are in various stages of playability let's say. I have a few that to sell I would regret selling for the cool what it is. Plus selling price versus what I might really get hurts too. I have the space so why not keep it for that every now and then dig it out moment. I keep the really good ones and ones that I have "bonded with" out and play them as much as time and will lets me. Certain ones do feel better and are easier to manipulate to get "that sound" you want from them so they will always get first grab. Other times I just use the Rick Neilsen approach and play one song be it once or a half hour on one guitar and then switch guitars for another tune. I am also a big fan of Double cut LP style guitars too. So while switching takes a moment changing to the next guitar is not all that hard to adjust. They are usually the same kind of frets and fretboards along with same scale. Then again I am only a living room noodler so YMMV.
