Gretsch and Fender. I think I need more diversity though
Hubby’s permanent stable -LOL
2 Gretsch - Tennessee Rose and White Falcon
4 Gibson - Les Paul Studio Pro, Gold Top, Firebird, Flying V
4 Fender - Roadhouse Strat, Jeff Beck Strat, SRV Custom Shop Strat, American Special Telecaster
1 Charvel - San Dimas Pro Mod
1 PRS - SE Custom -
1 Ibanez Steve Vai Jem

1 Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul
1 BC Rich Mockingbird

5 Gretsch (Jim Dandy, Rancher 12-string, 5422, 6118T, G5435)
4 PRS (S2 McCarty Singlecut, S2 Custom 24, SE Angelus A20E, SE A50E Angelus)

2 G&L Tribute Legacies
2 Martin (D-28, Custom D)
2 Manuel Rodriguez (Model E Exotic Cedar, C3F)

As evidenced by the list, I had a severe case of GAS. But alas, I THINK I am cured! In fact, I have actually off-loaded about half of these guitars, handing some off to my kids. I no longer own any Gretsches (sad to say), but two are still in the family. Personally, I still own the two PRS S2's and the SE A50E, the two Fender pro's, the two Martins, the MR Model E, and the Kremona. Aside from the Martin D-28, the PRS S2 McMarty Singlecut gets the most attention. In my opinion, it's a really good guitar, especially for the money.
I know you said “Don’t ask....” but I was very close to buying a Moonstone for Hubby - did I dodge a bullet ??
Very few for me, I tend to keep them. 66? Sears Silvertone w tube amp case, gave to nephew, 1967 Univox es335 - still have all original. 2006 Fender Telecaster (sold), Gretch Electromatic (sold), Epiphone Special P-90 Still Have, Squire Stratacaster (sold), Glarry Stratacaster Still have. Well I guess I don't keep them after all. I miss the Silvertone and the Telecaster. Never mated with the Electromatic. believe it or not that $80 Glarry is my go to player…So nice and light with a great board.

Favorate, Guild Starfire IV, Fender Telle, Gretsch Tennessee
Least favorate, Both Gibsons.
I’m not sure ya need more than those two.
I’m finding that in the electric world, Gretsch and Fender do it for me.
I have finally weaned myself down to only 8 guitars-7 Gretsch and 1 BC Rich. I have had a lot of guitars over the years from junk to jewels but I've been a Gretsch man since the first time I got my hands on a Gent in a local music store. I was just a kid but it became my obsession to own one.
ELECTRIC guitars -- Gretsch "by a mile" (to quote others, above) and for over 6 decades. Other brands -- 1 each of a couple of brands but all those are history.
Accoustic guitars -- Martin mostly -- 1 Guild and 1 Ovation (both long since gone).
1 Herminio Salinas mexican made classical
1 Pimentel mexican made classical
2 Telesforo Julve spanish made classicals
1 The Ventures Mosrite
1 Aria pro II
1 self made from a kit.
Oops -- duplicate of prior post......
Over the years and currently, I've owned Gibsons the most. But I've also owned lots of Fenders, a number of Gretsches, several Guilds, a few Epiphones, a handfull of PRS's, a few old Kays. I owned an Ibanez once.
They were great guitars, rock solid.
I bought mine second hand to the guy who was rhythm guitar player in our teenage band when I switched from bass to rhythm guitar due to my inability to properly play the bass while singing.
Over the years, it suffered lots of bad treatment, and always remained up-and-working fine. Only thing I ever changed were strings.
I was mainly strumming like a mental, more interested in songwriting than learning to play the guitar.
And in the end it looked quite like that one:
I always kept a very basic rig: directly plugged to my Yamaha JX 65D, basic channel 1, no pedal no gain no reverb. Blunt.
Here in action by something like 1989 (plus or minus one year).
I have absolutely no clue what has become of it. In my memory, it simply vanishes at some point. Same as the amp.
From time to time, I'm kinda nostalgic about it.
The closest (to the kind of use I had) now is my MIM Tele, but it's much better.
Reverends...10 of them (still have 4). Gretsch and Guild come in 2nd (4 each)....
Gibson by far.
2x Sterling (Music Man import) Axis
1x EBMM Axis (My baby)
1x Fender Strat (MIM)
1x Gretsch 5655TG
1x Fender P Bass (MIA)
1x Danelectro Baritone 66BT
1x Taylor 314ce (My other baby)
So, Sterling I have the most of, or tied with Fender if you count my bass. Or Music Man if you lump my EBMM Axis with the Sterlings. I've been eyeing another EBMM (Sabre). I guess I'm partial to the 4+2 headstock design.
