    Ten (don't tell my wife - she's up to about 6, I think)...

    Electric:
    2006 Swan LN6 w/Soundhole in Honduras Mahogany/Swamp Ash
    2008 S. Talkovich T90 Thinline in Surf Green
    2007 Anderson Hollow Drop Top in Jack's Pacific Blue

    Acoustic:
    2007 McPherson MG-4.5XP in Adirondack/Figured Mahogany
    2005 Mayes SJ Cutaway in Bearclaw Sitka/African Blackwood
    2006 Galloup Hybrid in Adirondack/Brazilian Rosewood
    1996 Martin HD-40MS Marty Stuart Ltd Ed. Dreadnought in Sitka/Indian Rosewood
    2000 Goodall MCJC Concert Jumbo Cutaway in Engleman/Curly Maple
    2005 Goodall KGC Grand Concert in Adirondack/Curly Koa
    1999 Tacoma Papoose

    I have owned 12 others previously, over my 42 years of playing guitar, all purchased new unless noted:

    1966 Kay semi-hollow Gibson copy
    1965 Goya classical nylon-string
    1968 Ovation Balladeer
    1968 Vox Phantom
    1960s Univox green beater (used in 1971)
    1965 Gibson J-200 (used in 1976)
    1983 Yamaha Strat copy
    1984 Ovation
    1984 Charvel Model 4
    1998 Gibson CL-45DS
    1999 Taylor 612-C
    2007 Danelectro DC59

    Favorites of those which are long gone:

    Acoustic - 1965 Gibson J-200
    Electric - 1984 Charvel Model 4

    Favorite current guitars:

    Acoustic - 2005 Goodall Koa Grand Concert
    Electric - 2008 S. Talkovich T90 Thinline

    Absolute favorite of all time: 1965 Gibson J-200 (without a doubt) - bought it used in 1976 with a big repaired crack on upper bout side - most awesome tone I have ever heard - like an idiot I sold it in 1988 after letting it expose to cold air and spider up with lacquer cracks (looked like a smashed mirror - couldn't bear to see it that way and had no idea it could be repaired).

    whittling whittling...

    1 Martin (D28s) for the rosewood dread.
    1 Gibson (J45) for the 'hog dread.
    1 Fender (Tele) for the solidbody.
    4 Guilds (uh oh)

    Yeah the Guilds are my soft spot. Love these things. Have a F47 ('hog smallbody), F312 (acoustic 12 string), Starfire II Special (hollowbody) and a Starfire XII (electric 12). Looking for a new home for the XII but it's going to go right back into another guitar, so it looks like 7 is the magic number for 2008, it's really going to be like pulling teeth to figure out what will have to go if I have to make a decision.

    I also think it interesting that the folks with more guitars than hands tend to have a bit of brand loyalty, but have at least one of each of the heavy hitting brand names. Like the OP, plenty of sadowsky gear so you know that's where home is, but 1 each of the rest to represent that brand in the stable.

    Right now, I have 5:

    2006 Hamer Studio Custom
    2004 Hamer Chambered Studio Custom
    200? PRS Custom 22 Soapbar
    1995 Hamer Eclipse
    199? Hamer Diablo

    The only sure keepers in the lineup are the 2006 Studio Custom and the CU22 Soapy; everything else is horsetrade-fodder to a greater or lesser degree.
