How many guitars do you really play?

Recommended Posts

I know alot of you guys and girls have more than one guitar. Some of you might have more than five. But how many guitars do you actually play daily? I play my number one bass every single day. I play my number two bass about once every two weeks.

 

What guitar do you give the most love too?

 

pics would be good too.

I rotate regularly... I play the Robot and the ES 339 the most. Next would be the classic and I pull the Custom out on a regular basis to treat myself. That guitar plays itself and sounds amazing. My other electrics get played every now and then. I play my acoustic every day too....

These get the most use. They're my Work Horses. The Strat and Nighthawk are my "Book Ends" and the Squier is my Eb guitar (The Duncan PUS are wonderful).

The Oly White Strat needs new Pick Ups and Intonation, I've been learning all I can about the Trem before I do that. The Buddy Guy gets played as little as possible. It sounds Great but I want it to be in good shape for special occasions.

I haven't played the Joe PAss much since I got in a Rock-n-Roll Band, but It gets a lot of Home Play. The Mandobird gets more than you'd expect, and I'm always pickin' on the Mandolin.

I was thinking on buying a 339. How do they play?

I seem to be favoring my 1983 Stratocaster this week.

Last week it was the Gibson ES 175. Because I played it unplugged while learning the rhythm parts of "Put Your Lights On" by Santana and Everlast.

I also played the Telecaster last week plugged into that amp right behind it because I was working on some experimental stuff and some rockabilly.

I rotate... not on any schedule, but whatever I feel like. At school right now, I only have my Martin, classical, and Fullerton.

 

Over the break, I used my Strat and Casino a bit... I missed the reliability of the Casino, and the Strat seemed very "chimey."

It's a random thing.

Some I don't play for months at a time - shameful, I know....

 

Just too busy, and my skill on the strings is duly shrinking.

 

Les Pauls get time, as do the Strats.

They really are the first two guitars any beginner should own so they can blossom from there.

I have three, but play my Faded Special the most because it's in my living room where I spend most of my time. Downstairs I'll grab my Jr. I play both everyday. My Tele is tuned to a G so I'll grab it about once or twice a week when I'm in a Stones mood.

My Epiphone Elitist Dot gets the most play - daily

I'll pick up the Les Paul, SRV Strat, home built strat, or Moderne on any given whim.

I have 4. Im saving for my 5th, a Gibson les paul standard. I have an Epiphone les paul standard (modded), Ibanez Joe Satriani, Ibanez Rg550 20th Reissue, and a Gibson 61 Reissue.

 

I play the les paul and the satriani the most...I worry about bad things happening to my more expensive guitars.

 

Heres the Epiphone.

This is the only one that gets played daily. I still occasionally play on another three electrics but more because I feel sorry for neglecting them than for any enjoyment factor. I'll probably sell two of them and just keep the very first guitar I bought purely for sentimental reasons.

 

I do play my Kiso-Suzuki acoustic which I bought in 1980 every other day. I also have a very strange - and very unplayable - arch-top acoustic. I'll post some snaps hereabouts in the Lounge and see if anyone can tell me anything about it.

 

Edit; I've put in on a post about an unknown acoustic. Feel free to come up with any ideas.
