    5 acoustics, 14 electrics, for a total of 19. I didn't include my 1 bass.

    My kids are playing 2 electrics and 1 acoustic. Another acoustic needs the neck reset. Plus I'm selling 1 electric.

    So that is not too bad.

    Right?

    I have to think hard for a second as I haven't been home since early September.. counting one I have onboard, and two up coming projects... That makes it seven.

    I just cant settle with one. and because I built them, they have some sentimental pull on me.

    4 of my guitars have sentimental value; 2 of my WIP guitars are gifts from family and the other two are my first one and my custom Warmoth strat.

    I feel much better now, at 44, I no longer think I have a real problem. I guess I can seek therapy if I get to 68.
    Do you have a variety or do you lean towards a specific type, mfgr etc?

    I have five six strings, a seven string, one 5 string bass and one four. No acoustics atm. I could get by with less, yet wouldn't mind more, aside from not really having any space to put them.

    Too many! Unfortunately I have fallen into the trap of building/buying/modifying guitars as a way to try different pickups and wiring combinations but it isn't always a rewarding endeavor because not all combinations work and it's sometimes hard to determine where the problem lies.

    An electric 12-string that my dad built that I never play, but I'd never sell, because who the hell would sell a guitar that their dad built?

    A Jackson KE-3 that's something of a work-in-progress. It was my main guitar for years, right now I've got several upgrades I plan on hitting it with. It is my only guitar with a trem...

    A Kiesel Ultra V. I keep it in B standard tuning, and it's my #1 player.

    A PRS SE 277. Also kept in B generally, when I do need to tune below B, it's my go to. I mainly like it to have another texture to complement the Ultra V on recordings, the long scale-length gives it a different attack.

    A BC Rich USA Custom Shop Beast. This is my standard tuning guitar.
    Would like to see a picture of the Ultra V and that Beast.

    Two pics of each: https://imgur.com/a/ppFi3Pl (I really hope I got the link right this time, I swear, Imgur changes the way their website works every week now...)

    The Rhoads V in the background of one of the Beast shots isn't mine; I was travelling for work with a watch on that one on Reverb when the price dropped to a point where I knew it wasn't going to last for long, so I ordered it and had it shipped to the bassist in my band (who is a long-time trusted friend and also plays guitar; in fact, he taught me when we were both in college), and that was one of the pics he sent me when it got there.

    10.
    8 electrics and 2 acoustics, but that number could grow if something catches my eye. I'd still like to have a hollow body.

    2 of the electrics I never play, But my oldest son is messing around with guitars a little and I've given 1 of those to him.
    I play 4 of the Electrics pretty regularly, 1 of them probably 75% of the time. But they each fill a need
    I could probably go down to 4 electrics and 1 acoustic and not really miss anything.

    My guitars, ranked.

    1. '07 Epiphone Les Paul plus top: Custom, APH2N(Slash)
    2. '03 Jackson RR5: Super Distortion ,Jazz
    3. '05 Epiphone '58 Korina Explorer: JB, Jazz
    4. '07 Squier Affinity Strat: Phatcat
    5. Ovation Celebrity CS28P-TGE Tiger Eye Maple
    6. '03 Warmoth Explorer build: JB, 59
    7. '07 Epiphone '66 RI G400: hb103b, hb102n
    8. Ibanez AX-120: Axis pickups (bought when I was 18, decent overall guitar but i never play it)
    9. Ibanez RG-220: Swapped the Powersounds for G&B pickups out of a PRS SE (My son is learning on this guitar)
    10. Spectrum Acoustic (cheap guitar my mom got me for my 25th bday)

    30+ and not proud of it -just accumulated them over many years.

    Plan to be down to 5 in the next couple of years to begin my traveling in an RV lifestyle.

    I have:
    2 Acoustics
    4 Strats
    2 Les Pauls
    2 cigar box guitars my older brother made

    Grand total of ten. I still GAS every so often for a P-90 Les Paul, or another bass. I had a cool P bass years ago, one of the things I had to sell during my divorce. I figure I have more than I need but still every now and then I get urges.

    I've got 16 electrics, 4 basses and two acoustics. I enjoy having the ability to play in different tunings without having to retune anything. For the tunings I play in a lot, I have 2-3 guitars. I built a shoddy double decker rack to hold most of them.

    I plan on selling a couple of the ones I don't play often. But I'm always open to having more. I find as much joy in tinkering/fixing as I do playing. So more guitars = more things to fix.

    I own four guitars. I've owned many guitars, but five is the most I have owned at one point in time. Maybe I should buy one so I can take part in the poll.
