    I am old, retired, self indulgent and out of control with GAS. And I have the money.

    15, 15

    But I've not bought expensive guitars. 10 were around $400 or less and my most expensive was $830 so I've not spent as much as many of you.

    1) 5
    2) 5
    3 acoustic and 2 electric.

    What can I say, I am a simple man.
    If I am specifically looking for a tone, I borrow!

    1. 36 (when I actually paid attention to the number - could have been more, heh)
    2. 35 with plans to trade 1, sell 9 and possibly buy 4 or 5.

    I would like to get back down to my favorite/best 10 but difficult to do when inflicted with various strains of GAS addiction - Teleitis, Mustangism, Gretschmydia, Fenderrhea...:oops::D

    On top of these, there currently is my son's nylon Yamaha and my nephew's Squier Precision at home.

    I think about 35, maybe more.
    I sold 2 in the last couple years, so I guess I'm down around 33 now. And needing to move another half dozen out.

    I'd have to swear all y'all (that's plural - something I've learned here, by-the-way;) - as opposed to y'all, which is singular), to secrecy if I told you. More than I am proud to admit.

    Would like to add one w Western motifs and Dynasonics, or an Eddie Cochran model. Just to look at, if nothing else :).

    I have a 1 in 1 out policy. I’m just really bad at math and stopped counting after 50. Around 65-ish now, probably.

    If you ever move you'll need to to hire a separate removal company for your guitars then :).

    Yes. :)

    Due to several reasons I want to get rid of most, but it’s so much work it feels I’m starting a new job.:confused:

    IMG_0500.jpeg Just these ones (and a Fender Mustang bass out on loan). A baritone would be nice, maybe later. But this lot covers a lot of ground for me. I'm having trouble putting the Tennessean down!

    I've currently got the most I've ever had. Two acoustics and eleven electric. That's 13 which is an unlucky number so I'm trying to decide on my very last one... to get to 14.
    Of course I'm not counting my bass or mandolin..
    Being retired and not able to get away has its benefits.

    Mmmm, 40....or 50....or 60, yeah, something like 60.:D
    There's steels, Banjo's, mandolins and basses in that number though.
