I have a problem. I have too many guitars, and can't play them well enough to justify the collection. I'm not a bad player, but I'm at the point of realizing I won't live long enough to get good at multiple styles. My guitars cover a wide range, and part of the point of having quite a few has been to allow me to explore new styles with the appropriate type guitars. I'd really like to focus the collection some and set some of them free (and clean the basement). Unfortunately I can't seem to make myself either focus exclusively on one type of playing or one style guitar. The obvious choice to set free is my resonator guitars, since bottleneck slide is so alien to the stuff I do fairly well, but I really love that sound and have some cool guitars in that area. Another candidate is my jazz archtop, since I generally sound better playing jazz on my Les Paul, but I'm such a big fan of that style and its such a nice piece of guitar art I'd hate to let it go. I'm not desperate financially, but would also free up some funds to let some go. Anybody have a similar situation? Any advice for how to make the needed choices to make progress, focus my energies, and have no regrets? I'm currently no slouch as a blues-rocker with some jazz influence, but I'm always tempted to try to focus on another area as that is such a crowded field these days.
