The other day, my friend bought a 3rd guitar, and that got me thinking. He's got 3 guitars, and a crappy amp, whereas I've got 3 amps, and a crappy guitar. So, which would you consider yourself?
I lil bit of both.

I have 1 good guitar 2 decent ones and 1 good amp and 1 decent amp.
There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.

Resistance is victory.

We are building up a new world.
Do not sit idly by.
I have 2 guitars, 7 pedals, and 1 amp that I actually use often. I have 2 guitars that just collect dust and about 3 pedals I don't really use. I think I lean a little on the gear head side but I think it's pretty even.
i got 2 acoustics and 2 electrics and a banjo, not my fault tho i only bought 1 electric and 1 acoustic, the others were given to me :S

Total gearhead, though I could use another guitar.

I took a pic of myself, cut a hole in the face and stuck my knob through so i could see what I'd look like if I got bitten by a radioactive elephant.
i have 3 great guitars and 1 mediocre amp

Guitar collector. I have 4 guitars a bass and 1 shitty amp (but I'm taking care of that for Christmas)
I collect guitars. I have 5 guitars: 3 acoustic, 2 electric. I normally play acoustic, so I only have 2 crappy amps.
6 guitars, 1 good amp and 2 pedals. I think guitar collector. But i will be venturing into a few more pedals and a new amp in the next year.

I'd say I try to keep it even, mainly because the more equipment I have, the happier I am.

Roland VGA-5
Marshall JCM-2000
Marshall AS50D acoustic amp
Roland Cube Street


Boss RC-20 loop pedal
Boss PW-10 wah pedal
A few crap distortion, fuzz pedals

2 guitars, 2 amps (albeit one is a shitty starter amp), and 2 pedals

I'd say that's pretty even.

I think you only really need 1 good amp but need 2-3 different guitars for playing different genres so I suppose that makes me a guitar collector

Quote by johnny butt
what is it called when you try to collect and learn as many instruments as possible?

Ohh I would do this if I had the money

I have one decent guitar, and one kickass half stack.

And a lameass practice amp but that doesn't count. Saving up for a new guitar right now.

I have two amazing guitars that i play evenly, and one good amp.

You could call me both, or poor
Software gear head. I don't use a physical amp at all anymore.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I have 1 decent guitar even though it's not really my style, one shitty guitar, and one shitty amp. I'm working on a new amp though, a decent practice one. After that I plan on buying another guitar or two.
I've got crappy guitars and crappy gear, sooo...neither

All my stuff is adequate if you'd like to put it that way: my guitars, as nice as they are, have bum frets; my amp has t00bs but it weak as hell; don't get me started in the MT-2 - if I have all the knobs as far clockwise as they can go, then I can get an acceptable sound out of it. Basically, what I have is the best of a relatively bad bunch, and it probably isn't gonna change for a while..
guitar head, but I would rather more amps and effects atm, I just cant afford them. 3 electrics, and acoustic, a bass and 2 amps.

I think that amps are more important to tone then guitars.
