Seventeen (17) including three that are in other parts of the country. Interesting thing is that I don't play any of them particularly well, the multiplication just sorta crept up on me. Oh wait, Eighteen (18). [biggrin] In my defense though, there are only Five (5) that count.

There's a few big collectors here. Love looking at them when pics get posted.

 

I've got a few: 19. Seven are Gibsons. I haven't sold off any in quite a while, so they're starting to pile up. . B)

Three. I thinned my heard from ten, and am now trying to have one in each size I use. I have 00 (oversized parlor), mini jumbo, and dread covered. Only remaining size is concert or 000, that size is called quite a few different things.

I thinned out and also bought.......... Currently have 8.........down from 15. I sold off some electrics and got some more acoustics after I stopped live gigs back in 2012.

I don't know -- more than 100 but less than 200.

 

Maybe 60-70 Gibsons -- but some of those are banjos and mandolins.

Things have changed. I used to have a lot more. Now I have three acoustics: a Martin D15, a Martin 000-18, and my Gibson SJTV. I also have a Mexican Tele, and a Martin S1uke.

I could easily get by with just the D15 if I am honest, but I don't want to just get by. I think I am at a nice happy medium.

I fear that I have rubbed off on my oldest son, who is a sophomore in college, though. He has 3 acoustics and two electrics. Crap! When I was his aged I gigged in college and I had just a Strat.

Currently 24, with #25 arriving this week.

Will have to assess to see if it's a keeper.

 

Oh, and the old Loar-era Gibby mandolin.

 

Lots of others have come & gone.

I have eleven total (I think) including my homemade square neck 9 string lap guitar (which started out life as a 1920s Regal parlor). Of these one is not playable at all and a few others while in the playable range still need some TLC.

 

Also have a 1940 Strad-O-Lin mandolin, two 1950s Supro lap steels (a single and a double neck) and three fiddles.

I got 13.

Two of them are Gibson acoustics.

One other is an acoustic bass - unplayed.

Another one is an electric (Epiphone Nighthawk in the attic - unplayed)

Tree of them are not at home.

I don't count here the guitars that I gave to friends - arround ten, may be some more...

And I don't count here the instrument that my luthier builds for me in that moment.

Really I don't need them all...

But honestly I don't know how to sell a guitar - never did.

Oh... Almost forgot the Epiphone Inspired By Texan that I bought for a friend and now is in the hall with a ToneRite on it msp_biggrin.gif

I see now very clearly that this is a mania and I am a maniac msp_sneaky.gif ...

I will quote JT, who to fend off possible derision by family members, says: 'I don't know!'

 

 

 

 

....and mine is an ever moving target to play the best I can get my hands on, but I am happy with at least ONE.

Same answer as I give my wife, "SEVERAL" cuz I haven't looked at my insurance spreadsheet for a while. I'm sure it's over 30 but I don't want to know for certain. If I don't know for sure I can't get into trouble cuz I'm not a lying when she asks. I know I have been out of the market over the winter months. :rolleyes:
