    I do.

    super happy with my two main guitars a strandberg and a 50s road worn strat.

    Out side of that I have a couple V's to play on when the time calls for it, and two home made guitars that I like to pull out when company comes over.

    I could pull out worse things...

    Almost. I have four total (2 Strats, 1 Hollowbody, 1 Classical).
    Need a nice acoustic if anyone wants to donate an Ibanez AVN6 to a needy man-child living abroad.

    I need to thin the herd. Problem is I don't buy cheap guitars and live in a remote area so selling them for a decent price locally is not easy.

    Of course not. I still need a LP style electric, 12 string electric, 12 string acoustic, maybe another Strat-oid, a hollow body jazz style, a parlor acoustic, a gypsy jazz acoustic, .......

    Some would say that by definition, you never have enough guitars. The number of guitars one needs follows this rule:
    Optimum # of Guitars = # of Guitars Currently Owned + 1


    Having said that, the last guitar itch I scratched was the tele one when I got my G&L ASAT Tribute. So with my 2 LPs, my PRS, my strat, my ASAT, and my acoustic, I honestly have enough. One day perhaps I'll get an LP equipped with P90's, but I have no immediate GAS for that.

    I would like to own one of every body shape. Nothing too wild, just the mainstream, and a couple of the weird ones!

    I'm on the hunt for a super flamey LP Double Cut.

    Then I will have 17 guitars and have enough to see me through the finish line

    Right now I'm pretty content with what I have but I do have a few on my list i'd like to have around.

    A classical guitar... mine was stolen.
    A Twelve String... don't really need this but they're fun and mine was stolen.
    A better strat. I've never owned a higher end strat. My Parts-caster is ok but I really want an American Special.

    Yes, but no.

    I have 9 plus two being reassembled now (so 11 ish). Since I’m doing more recording now, I’d like to add a 12 string, a PRS, and a baritone to the collective.

    Yes, sort of. I have definitely what I need but do want a few more to have some variety. What I'm really thinking I'll get more of are amps. I want a Marshall and a Carr Rambler and maybe a Tone King.

    I basically have the right number. One nice acoustic, one nice electric, one beater acoustic that I can abuse and not worry about.

    I go back and forth between having one and two electrics. When I have two, one of them never gets played and I think I should get rid of it. But when I just have one, no matter how nice, I'm at risk of taking it for granted and forgetting how great it is, so then I start thinking I should have a second. I'm in that second place now - there's no question my relatively new PRS 594 is all the guitar I could ever want or need - I'll never own anything of higher quality or higher cost or that I'll enjoy more. But I'm thinking about adding a classic vibe tele or strat or something similar. Just so I can pick it up every now and then, enjoy it for it's different flavor, but then when I grab the PRS again, I'm reminded of how amazing it is and I'm in love again.

    When I was heavily into cycling, I always had different bikes for different uses, but my main bike was always a fast road bike (I'm not a versatile enough guitarist to need different guitars for different purposes, other than electric and acoustic). And it was generally really important for me to have a second one. Not because I rode the second one much or NEEDED it in any real sense. But because it helped me appreciate how transcendently great my #1 was. My #1 was a custom Spectrum ti bike and it was as great a bike as the 594 is a guitar. And I always appreciated how amazing it was, but having a second one to ride occasionally that was really good but definitely not the #1, always helped me appreciate it. I'm probably in the same place with electric guitars. I'll probably eventually add a second one that will mostly take up space but will also be a good perspective check / reminder, etc. I know guys who've used this strategy with women - I could never pull that off and wouldn't want to, but I sort of get it...
