And yes my wife will confirm I am hopeless, but I think she figures as long as I'm playing I'm not pestering for food and sex.

At present I have my Epiphone SG G-310, my Squier California Series Stratocaster, and a crappy little acoustic that I hardly play, because it's a real dog. I fully intend to have many, many more, but for now I'm happy playing and modifying what I've got.

Not to hijack, but to add to this topic-could any of you multi guitar owners-the real sickos-not just the guys with 2 or so (and no disrespect to you guys, I'm sure many of you will become as hopeless as the forum member next to you just as soon as you can), but for those guys with a half dozen or more....


Could you ever, EVER-cull the herd down to just one? ONE?




Sometimes I think I could just take the Wildkat and leave the rest...but then I get all nervous..palpatations, sweats...Great Googlimoogli! I don't like to think about it! So I guess I could only do it under extreme duress.


How about any of the rest of you? Could you narrow it down to one if the house was going up in flames?

My old man once remarked I had a lot of guitars. I said: "You go golfing with one club?"


I gotta remember that one LOL!! 7 electrics and 3 acoustic/elec's. And if the house is going up in flames, there'd be one in each hand and probably a third strapped over a shoulder!!

10 ... eight electrics, one acoustic and one bass.


Narrowing it down to one would be a real tuffy! Each of my guitars has (to me anyway) a pretty unique sound and was chosen for a it. The fact is, there are STILL a couple out there that I think I need to get a particular tone ... and many that I avoid for the same reason. For example. even though I am gassing big time for a Sheriton in natural, I haven't yet because it just seems too close to the Lucille IMHO. The Casino, on the other hand, is a different tone ... an is one that is missing from my collection.


It's not like I want to own a Les Paul or any other model in every color ... although I am drawn by the visual as much as the next guy. I just go by the sound and the feel and all the other mystical things about guitars that grab us poor saps!

*LOL* Not nearly so many! A Rhodes, a Hammond, 3 keyboard synths and a few rack-mount modules.


With keyboards, one instrument can contain over a thousand different sounds (more with sound cards), so you don't need nearly as many pieces of gear to get a whole panorama of tones, colors and effects.


With guitars, there are all the variables of construction, pickups, finishes, etc. --- plus they're fun to have around!
