    I’m with you on that, entirely. I don’t have the heart to sell any, and each has its own personality.
    There’s something to what you say.
    But it is the one. You can’t improve upon a Gent from that era.

  13. 21 in the 80s but I was doing design and demonstrations for Yamaha UK at the time..
    Currently down to a manageable 8. They cover pretty much anything I'm asked to do.

    [QUOTE = "Merc, post: 1312916, lid: 19148"] Ik weet dat er een mix van leden is, waaronder verzamelaars, muzikanten en hobbyisten van alle graden. Ik dacht dat dit interessant zou kunnen zijn en leuke GAS zou kunnen vertellen.

    1. De meeste gitaren bezaten tegelijkertijd
    2. Huidig aantal gitaren in bezit [/ QUOTE]

    The most guitars I have ever had in possession at any one time is 26. They were mostly collector guitars and I did sell off the collection in 1993. Today, I own 8 guitars. If I add a Gretsch to my collection, it will be 9.
