I really don't know. They're not all here so I can't line them up.
Max was probably 9-10.
Current is 7... 4 electrics (all Gretsch), 2 acoustics, and 1 bass.
I tend to take a "one in, one out" approach... typically because I can't afford to add a new guitar without letting one go first!
My guitar collection is a singularity.
24 at one point, I am now at 4 Prolines
20-ish. Down to 14. Mostly used/rescues. Nothing fancy. A few had to be put down. Certainly the wife put her foot down. I told my guitars they could stay if they started paying rent. They balked. We got lawyers sorting it out.
I think the most I ever owned was about 25 (including two basses).
I got that down to about 23 recently by selling off two cheaper guitars (that incidentally were my only two acoustics, a 12-string Harley Benton and a 6-string Fender dreadnought.)
I sincerely believe that I own all the expensive models I'll ever want (Gretsch proline and Electromatic, Les Paul, Firebird, several Strats and Teles, a couple of Rics...) so my current strategy is to get the occasional GAS fix from the ever-expanding, and improving, Harley Benton range. Current objects of my lust are the Prince Telecaster copy, and their take on a Les Paul Junior with a single P90. Each of these beauties retails new for about €190.
I've been kicking the idea of an SG like yours around for a while now. I in NO way need another guitar, but i do not have one with 2 P90s yet soooo...
Soooo, you DO need one.
Man... Somebody really likes Telecasters.
HOLY CRAP! I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT MY BASSES!.... Ok. Now we're talking 114. Sorry about that.
Q: How many guitars do I own???
A: More than my sorry skills merit +1
That's All Folks
Max was maybe 30. Current population is a bit over 20. Probably 11-12 get a lot of playing time, the rest are jealous or need me to repair/fix/upgrade something on them.
Well, I'm an open minded fella, and always open to new information. So, yeah, I guess I really do!
Once owned five guitars.
Now I own four.
Unless you don't count a lap steel as a guitar. Then subtract one from both those numbers.
Three years ago, I had three guitars, the same three I'd had for decades. Then the kids' tuition bills wound down and I started collecting. Now I'm up to fifty guitars, basses, and banjos I haven't learned to play yet. It's sick. But I'm finding what best suits the music I most enjoy, and I'll prune my collection. I have a half dozen that I plan to sell as soon as I photograph them. I woke up this morning from a dream in which I decided to sell my vintage Hagstrom so someone more qualified can restore it. I think this thread might have prompted that dream.
Three and three.
The answer is the same in both cases, as I've never got rid of a guitar: six.
- Nylon-string Spanish guitar.
- DeArmond T-400 in Tennesse orange.
- Gretsch Duo Jet George Harrison Signature.
- Epiphone EJ-200 vintage sunburst acoustic.
- Squier Strat (no clear model, as it seems to share specs from at least a couple of them), painted psychodelic in a crude way once I had too much time on my hands.
- Höfner 500/1 V62 bass (does this count as a guitar?)
Well next week it will change, God willing. Hundreds !
