At the moment I only have the one electric guitar, and within a few months I'll have hopefully purchased my second, an Ibanez S2075FW, a beautiful guitar, by looks alone you'd think it'd cost twice the amount it does.

Although, I wouldn't say no to a snow white LTD EC-1000. Or a Schecter Hellraiser. Or a Jackson Soloist. I could go on.

So my question to you is, have you ever reached a point where you think, "Damn, I'm not buying any more guitars after this."

And how long would wait after buying a guitar to get another one after that?
Funny words.

lol why does there have to be a question about how many guitars you own ?...unless its a financial subject.

I once had...

Tanglewood acoustice
Fender strat
Epiphone casino
Ibanez RG 550
Ibanez RG prestige
Yamaha pacific
Jackson Dinky
Fender telecaster.


Now i just have the tanglewood, strat, yamaha, and one ibanez.

It doesnt matter how many guitars you have,.....i dont like people with the attidtude "you have too many guitars"....who gives flamming a **** !

No such thing as too many. i've got Seven already, I intend to sell 1, and buy two more.....

Can't wait for the SG and the Dinky lol.

It does get irritating however, when one buys guitars forgetting that one really needs an amp more....

i currently own 14, and more are on the way. i dont think there should be a limit to guitars, each one is an expression of yourself. i love every one of mine for a different reason. financially its not an issue, because my dad builds guitars.
#6
There really should be no limit. Although, I have a friend who has at least 7-8 guitars, and can barely play the intro to crazy train.

Lucky sod...are you the tester ?

Um, Paul Gilbert once owned over 100 guitars at once, so theres no such thing as too many...

My mom wants to buy me a new guitar. I could use another guitar, but when your amp is an MG, I think we know where the priority lies.

If you can afford them, and still pay off any other dues you have, it's okay. And most, if not all, professional guitarists have a bunch of guitars. It helps if you use a bunch of different tunings, and they have different pickups for different tones...

If you can justify buying them then why not.

well there's a difference between owning too many guitars, and USING too many guitars. If you just buy guitars for the sake of it, or to look cool, or if you really aren't too good, imo that's when you have too many guitars. If you actually use each guitar to the full extent of it's capabilities, then no, owning 25 guitars is fine.

I but atlest 2 or 3 guitars a year, but i use every one and they all have differents sound and tunings and pickups.
by the way i have 12 guitars
#13
I've only been playing for a little over a year, and I've had 5 guitars (of which I still have four), and a bass. Two Epi's, two Gibsons (one now sold), one Kramer, one Fender bass.

Right now I'm thinking of getting one more, probably a Strat. Then I'll stop. Maybe. I'm getting tempted by hollowbodies too.


Yes, I do realise I'm stupid.
And no, you can never have too many guitars.

Exactly. Slash has/had several hundred too, and almost everyone who was big in the late 70's/80's/early 90's horded guitars as well (KISS, Whitesnake Bon Jovi, etc).

Most of them will never even play all the guitars they have, but sod it - if you've got the money, why not?
#17
if had the money i would buy as many guitars as i can

A tele or two
Loads of super strats, different woods, different pickups, different hardware
Few explorers and V's
Few les pauls, different tunings, the Les Paul sound

i could list every guitar i have:

a bunch of unidentified old classical guitars (about 4 of them)
an unidentified 12-string acoustic
1960s Egmond acoustic, a bit messed up
A completely knackered triumph archtop. can't complain, it cost £2
1978 Rickenbacker 4001 bass (in a word, "w00t")
Unidentified generic superstrat - i'm only borrowing this... still have it though...
Freshman FA1AN electro acoustic. honestly one of the nicest i've played, only cost £135
Squier affinity strat - not bad, nothing special
Epiphone G-400 - excellent guitar, its a bit neck-heavy.
Epiphone LP Junior - lol. actually its not too bad.
Squier standard telecaster - This is seriously good. No idea why, it just is.
Squier custom tele - poor wiring but nice quality guitar, good sound.
Line 6 Variax 500 - No, its not a bad guitar just because its a line 6. good for studio work.
Danelectro DC-12 - amazing sounding 12-string, 'nuff said
Fender MIM strat - as good as i need a strat to be.
Ibanez Jet King II - my main guitar. Very versatile, very comfortable, very heavy, amazing sustain.

I've been playing for about 10 years... holy crap, i didn't realise just how many guitars i had...

Next on the list will probably be a Gretsch Pro-Jet. But my taste changes frequently, i have a very short attention span.
