Why do you have so MANY Guitars?

Is it to keep certain guitars in a alternate tuning?

Is it to have tonal variation?

Is it because you like to collect them?

Do tell... How many do you have and why so many?

Anything more than TWO counts as so MANY!

"Having" them (usually 4-6 at any given time; total value about $4K) makes me feel good, plain and simple. "Having" includes playing them, looking at them, swapping them, tweaking them, etc.

2 is perfect for me. I have something to swap but don't have to spend much time playing all of them to keep them all in good shape. If you don't play a guitar for a long time, it gets dull.

I have 7 guitars right now. I must say that after I purchase a guitar I feel all warm and fuzzy inside but after awhile you start to get that burn again. You go to the guitar store and you find that one and only that you just gotta have. I believe its an addiction.......Plain and simple!!!!!!!

One for standard tuning. One to tune down a semi-tone. One to tune down a full tone. And of course, one for sale. :)

2 great ones and a bunch of crappers that are in various states of diss-assembly/assembly. if i had more dough I'd have more great ones.

Tonal variation, different feel, different look, etc.

because when you buy the right ones for the right price, theyre like money in bank.
my bro's into RC helicopters, those things depreciate faster than you can say de pre ciate

I have 7 electrics, 1 bass, 2 acoustics, 1 mandolin. When I was first playing I had cheap guitars of various looks and tonal variety. Now that I've been playing for 18 years I have better guitars but for similar reasons. I scratch an itch, tweak, experiment, etc. then sell. Some become gems I can't sell and others become trade possibilities.

I love the hobby.

I have 8. I just enjoy variety. One day I'll play my Strat. The next day I might be in the mood for my Jazzmaster or Casino. Also, for gigs i need another guitar tuned to Drop C
