I think my main trouble is I don't want to sell them cause they're somewhat rare and hard to replace if I ever wanted them back.

    One of the Stratocasters is one I bought brand new in 2007. It got stolen in 2009. Thought it was gone forever, till (2016 or 2017, can't remember.) when a friend of mine finally found it in a pawn shop, I showed the police the receipt , and got it back. Somehow, it is still in very nearly mint condition. So... It has some sentimental value but I NEVER play it. It needs to go but I can't.

    I live in a small apartment and I have a kid now and there's just absolutely no space for all of these axes. Our entire closet is full of guitars. My Ibanez is my best playing one and since it's HSH it can kinda get every tone I need. It's the one I play all day every day but yet I still can't find a way to let go of my other 12.

    Anyone else go through this kinda traumatic realization that they need to get rid of a bunch and have this mental block that makes it impossible ? How did you move past it ?

    I had to downsize my pedal collection of about 20 pedals a few years back. I was bummed that I had to sell them because I needed the money. After I sold them, I felt kind of dumb because why did I need so many pedals when I hardly used most of them.

    1 lol. A Gibson (not epiphone) flying V from the early 90's I think. I'm trying to figure out what pickups to put in it though. The neck pickup is SUPER quiet sounding (like there's something wrong with it). I'm thinking about putting a set of black winters in it, but I don't have the money to really try out a bunch of pickups and don't want have to play mix and match until I find which ones sound good.

    Have you tried raising that neck pickup closer to the strings?

    I'm at 10 right now, but I've owned over 100 in my life. I've come to the conclusion that I just like having guitars so I'm going to stop buying/selling and just start collecting. And not collecting for any investment value - just collecting because I like them. Most of mine are in the $300 - $900 range and have mods (pickups, etc) so nothing crazy expensive. On the flip side, I now have 5 different amps and two extension cabs... BUT only 1 pedal!

    Of all my guitars, I wish I had kept the vast majority. So now I'm going to start doing that. I actually published a post about this!

    I have about 8 right now. There might be others that I like, but I kinda got tired of that chase. I am into playing a lot more now, rather than surfing ebay or reverb.

    I am very fortunate i must say. I have found tons of good deals and over the past 4 years, I have accumulated over 30 guitars (I had 4 in 2016). I lived in the St Louis area a few years back and was able to procure a TON of great guitars for super cheap. The Denver area (where i live now) has been no slouch either.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    I have 8 killer guitars in my stable at the moment, though my goal is to eventually get down to 6 "keepers" (5 electrics, 1 acoustic) and be done for a good long while.

    1) Jackson Rhoads
    2) Warmoth Super-Tele
    3) Warmoth Super-Strat
    4) Chapman Norseman
    5) Washburn George Lynch "Outlaw" prototype (solid body electric, not the later acoustic by the same name)
    6) Anthem WTR-10
    7) Ibanez RG7321
    8) Martin 000X1 acoustic

    But if you count guitars I'm selling and projects I've yet to finish, you can pretty much double that

    3 guitars and a bass. Two ESP Eclipses, one semi hollow (1997) and one solid (2008). And an Ibanez NDM1 that I'm about to rip the duct tape off of and refinish.

    I don't like having more guitars than I have room to keep out at once. If it's in a case, I know I'm too lazy to take it out and rotate through them.

    The guitar population fluctuates over time in my house. Currently, five Strats (an EJ, a first year SRV, a custom shop Robert Cray that was one of the earliest ones, and two partscasters, that Id never part with) a 2013 LP Traditional, a 2016 50s Tribute Les Paul, two cheap Asian acoustics, a cigar box my brother built for me, and another homemade three string my brother built, my the Epiphone SG my stepson abandoned when he quit playing. One day that will get new electronics and pickups and hopefully go to my grandson that just started playing.

    Nine. I have had somewhere between 250-300 guitars pass through my hands over the years and have been fortunate to be able to try just about every guitar that I have had interest in over that time. Below are the ones that I have built or bought over the last seven years after selling off all my gear during a divorce back in 2013. The last couple of years have really allowed me to discern what I truly like and gravitate towards and that I actually pick up
    and play. The one that I have retained are all really solid players and sound awesome so pretty much all "Number Ones" to me.

    2020 Famn Damily:

    8 Electrics:
    - 2009 Gibson Studio Raw Power Les Paul Trans Aqua (Maple Fretboard/Maple Body/SD Jazz-JB)
    - 2009 Gibson Studio Raw Power Les Paul Trans Satin White (Maple Fretboard/Maple Body/SD JNJ-CCJ)
    - 1983 Kramer Pacer Imperial 3 Color Sunburst (Maple Fretboard/Maple Body/SD JNJ-DiMarzio Tone Zone F)
    - 1983 Kramer Pacer Deluxe Blackburst (Maple Fretboard/Maple Body/Suhr ML Standard Neck & Middle-TB4J)
    - 1989 Kramer Sambora (2009 Charvel USA San Dimas Neck/NOS 1989 Kramer Sambora Body/SD Jazz-JB-RTM TB)
    - 2018 Frankenstein (USACG Maple Neck/KNE Azusa Ash Body/DiMarzio True Velvet-NOS TB4J)
    - 2016 Warmoth Tone Bomb Ash Super Tele (Birdsye Maple Neck/One Piece Ash Body/SD JNJ-RTM TB)
    - 2013 Warmoth Iceman (Maple Neck/Mahogany Body/SD Jazz B-CC/TB4J A2 Hybrid)
