I need something really clever to say to people when they say to me "do you really need another guitar?" any ideas?

I deal with this all the time with my hiking friends. All I say is that, their hobby is hiking mine is guitar, they spend lots of money on that and I don't complain so what gives them the right to call me out when I put money in to music.

when people ask me why the **** i have 6 guitars, i say its because you need backup guitars and guitars in different tunings. people who ask such questions wont understand any other reason such as sound and playability anyways

Say you experience orgasmic pleasure by rubbing your knob on the different guitars, and ONLY the variety is what keeps you away from children.

They will probably never comment on it again.

OT: I usually ask them if it's their money, and if they have any clue about guitars.

I say either "Yes" or "I need it to experience different sounds and tones".

whenever anyone asks me if i really need another guitar when i'm thinking of getting another one or GASing for one in particular, i bore them to death with things like specs, technical details, how it differs from anything else that i have, and stuff like that that is completely irrelevant to them, until they tell me to shut up. and then i say "well you asked..."

Next time they say that ask them "Do you really need another breath?"
#19
if you don't already have a good argument, maybe you don't actually need another guitar :P
#22
Say the specs.

Also, say guitars are like food. "Why do you eat different types of food? If you ate the same food every day, I'm sure you'll still live."
HILT!

You could also say: "Did you marry the first person you dated?"

Also, "**** you!" works pretty well.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Why should you need to justify to others how you want to spend your money? Ask them if you're questioning their choice to throw money at drinks and working girls

I'm now at the point in my life where I don't rely on anyone else for my guitar purchases. I normally go for this.

I sometimes do this now when I can be bothered, and used it a lot when I was a kid and had to get guitars as presents and stuff.

Nowadays when my mother asks me if I have some kind of problem because I buy new stuff I say to her:

Guitars are like shoes. You don't have one pair of shoes for everything.

She seems to understand this metaphor.

EDIT: by the way, no argument will work on your girlfriend.

when they say "what do you need another guitar for"?
you tell them "... well, when the diarreah hits the fan, and you're sitting there in your bunker-ized basement, and you've got your 3-years of storable food and stockpile of firearms and ammunition, you aint gonna have one of my guitars to play, cuz the United Nations troops took away everything i have, and sent me to a FEMA Camp"
#36
i've had this loads and i have a standard reply along the lines of "i could stand here and list reasons to justify it, like different tunings, back ups, styles of bridge etc.... but the plain truth of it is... i'm a guitarist and i like them??..." :-)
