Right now I have 7 guitars which I've gotten since I started playing guitar about 6 years ago. They're all mid-level or cheap guitars, and I feel like right now they're holding me back. Not really because of the price, but about 4 of them are either not that great to play, or redundant (I have 3 Strats, but honestly I'd be cool with just one). So I'm thinking of selling my 2 Ibanez guitars because I don't like the thinner necks. And out of my 3 Strats, I'm going to sell 2. I've found that the only guitars I really play are my excellent MIM Tele, and a Squier Strat that has an awesome neck. I'll keep my first guitar for sentimental reasons and for a beater guitar. So I think I'd feel better having just those 2 or 3, then save up for a Les Paul or SG, whichever has the most mojo when I go to the guitar store. Anyone else ever start over gear-wise, or dramatically thin the herd? I don't like having all these guitars around that I don't like or play. A Tele is my dream guitar, plus having a Strat and LP would be all that's really needed for my music. For a while I hung on to all my guitars for sentimental reasons, then now I realize they're all just tools. Get rid of what doesn't work for you.
