Too many guitars?
 
How many is too many? I own 4 with my fifth coming in the mail as we speak, so how many is too many? Will you ever say, "I've got enough". To be honest, I don't think I'll ever have too many :cool:

we had this thread a few weeks ago.

Your just starting if you only have 4-5 guitars.
You have too many when it cost more to change strings than you have in your bank account.

dropb81 01-18-2013 08:39 PM

I have 5 but looking to buy one and sell 2 lol... So my number is always changing. Do basses count? lol

How many guitars is too many? Man, that's like asking how many beautiful hot and willing girlfriends is too many! I want them all!!!

is there such thing as too many guitars? I have 6 and can't play any of them decently. Still learning though

randomhero93 01-18-2013 10:08 PM

just had an impulse buy on a very cheap, yet flawless conditioned Michael Kelly Patriot. raised my total count, acoustics and basses included, to 6. I intend to get more.

Even if I get totally pissed at my lack of skill and shitty tone sometimes, I still think guitar is a fun hobby. Never have enough!

This is me, minus one guitar.

I think I may have to much. I only really play 2 of them out of the 12 I currently own. I have a 6 string bass coming in soon for the bassist in my band to use with our 7 string songs, so I'll have 13 by the end of the month. I totaled all of my guitars a while back. In the past 4 years of playing, I've owned 17 (Soon 18 with the bass) different guitars.

I have 11 guitars.

So far this year, I've put $400 down on a limited edition Malden on Tuesday, am talking to a different retailer about a Reverend limited edition, and because the slab of walnut I bought was big enough to be cut into single-piece tops & sides for TWO guitars, my custom guitar order to a luthier has been doubled.

Delboyuk_01 01-19-2013 01:03 AM

I have 8, and I make a point of playing them all, some more than others obviously. I don't think I'll be buying any more in the near future though.

aerosmithfan95 01-19-2013 01:06 AM

I currently have four guitars (2 electrics and 2 electrics) and I've owned seven guitars overall. I'll probably never feel like I have enough, but I'm happy with whay I have. I've really been GASing another Kramer, though.

Alucard817 01-19-2013 05:20 AM

I own two guitars and five basses. Looking to sell two basses and add another short scale bass to the fold.

As far as they're all concerned I have a few rules.
Any new guitars or basses must be either; more versatile than the last, or have a completely different tone, which means I won't allow myself to own more than one SSS strat.

WholeLottaIzzy 01-19-2013 06:06 AM

I have a Les Paul Standard Faded and a Baja Telecaster with an R7 in the post. I can get nearly every sound I want with those guitars.

This. +1

I've had something like 20 in my lifetime. I've got 7 now, I've bought 4 this year and sold 2.

I'd say that if you are still learning really basic stuff 1 or 2 guitars is enough and time should be spent playing not GASing. :haha:

I'd never buy two guitars that are too similar. My strat has the Billy Corgan configuration but I'm starting to think it's just a bit dull sounding, it's got very little character compared to my Tele, so I'm gonna chuck a Lace Gold pickguard in so I can use it for Modern blues stuff, and the Tele for older stuff.

It's no big deal, I'd happily use any guitar for anything.

My Last Words 01-19-2013 08:32 AM

Currently have 2 cheap acoustic, a strat copy, a Ibanez GIO and a Jackson RR5. Might get a 7-string in the future.

Dave_Mc 01-19-2013 08:35 AM

you can have too many, to be fair. like a thousand, that might be too many. :o

Mephaphil 01-19-2013 09:17 AM

I read that Jimmy Page has over 1,500 guitars.
