I've only played guitar for about 4 years, so I feel I'm still in the learning-stage. One of my favourite things to do, is to go into music stores and try out new guitars, and occasionally buy one. Until reasently I had 5 guitars, but one had an unfortunate accident and is no longer amoung us. What about you musicians that has been in the game for some time, do you still feel the need for new guitars?

I have:
Fender Stratocaster Lite-Ash
Cort Earth-200
Cruiser by Crafter (bass-guitar - unknown model)
Ibanez V (deceased)
(and a 30 year old peice-of-crap guitar - unknown brand and model)
I've been playing for just over a year, got 2, 1 shitty starter guitar, and my new Cort Vx-2v
My Gear
Cort VX-2V
Stagg BC300
Marshall JCM900 4100 DR

I have the...

Bc Rich Masterpiece Bich (first proper guitar)
Monterey MGS-3 (my starter)
BC Rich Kerry Warlock King (my l33t metal guitar)
AXL Fireax which is something i scooped up for a good bargain and thought it was good for the price.

Planning to get a new one soon, perhaps a higher range Gibson, I like BC Rich as you may see so maybe the SM Draco V

I like more having just good one electric guitar. If I get more money, I'll sell old guitar and use that money to buy a better one. It really doesn't make sense to have like five different $500 guitars, cause you could get some sweet PRS or other all-aroud-guitar with that money.

Actually I've got two guitars: my "main-axe" Ibanez Sz 320 and some crappy B.C.Rich Warlock. I got that Warlock as a gift, so it has more sentimental value..

1-MIM Fender Strat
2-some 40 year old japanese semihollowbody electric (sekova i think is the brand?) that i can't get to work
4 guitars:

An inherited strat copy (Exclusively sentimental value, never actually played it)
Epiphone G-310 (Fixed bridge, so I can do strange tunings with it)
RPG JEM copy (Floyd Rose, otherwise I'd have sold the G310)
A mixed up acoustic with an inherited (unknown) neck and a Lakeland body.

All of them are left-handed apart from the strat, which I've flipped the strings and strap buttons on.
I own 4 guitars... 5 as of next thursday hopefully
- Dean ML
- Eastcoast Strat Style (FS - UK Only)
- Eastcoast Acoustic
- Hohner Les Paul
and hopefully...
- Epiphone SG Deluxe Flametop

I have 3. A Jasmine by Takamine acoustic, which was my first guitar. A Breedlove AC25 S/M with Fishman 4 pickups. A Gibson SG Standard 2007. I am about to build my own custom Strat.
I have three:
A horrible no-namer strat copy
A nice Crafter Acoustic
And my Gibson SG Standard
For the TS: what do you mean "still learning"? You will be learning guitar for as long as you keep playing! Just a though.

Anyhow I have 2:

-A MIM wine red HSS Strat
-An Amberburst ESP Eclipse II with SD 59/JB

I'm thinking of selling them both and just getting a REALLY nice SSS strat and using the remaining cash towards a nice amp.

I have GAS, but I dont play well enough to justify having more than 1 or 2 guitars.
