    Now all members have this thread as justification to their wives /SOs, whenever it may be needed:

    "Look honey, everyone has at least 5 guitars."

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    Well, as a pro guitarist, I own a lot less than most pros I know:
    7 electrics, 3 acoustics.

    I am not really a collector, and I tend to not have any use for the 'I need a Tele, and an LP, and a Strat' mentality. I just get what I know I will continually pick up and play.

    Oh boy. Almost 40?

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

    Except me. I have three electrics and would be just as happy with two.
    I would not mind a nice acoustic, but just one would be plenty.

    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...

    I just bought number 67.

    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.
