I have three that I play a lot, and two others that I don't play as often. So yeah, just a few more.
I'll say 2. One all maple neck and another with a rosewood fretboard.
It's always "just one more," isn't it?
I think 2 (and I have 2):
1 is my main guitar (reliced hardtail with a fairly bright sound- big frets and higher action) and
1 AVRI with vintage frets, lower action, and slightly darker, mellower sound.
They are similar enough to be able to sub for each other if one fails, string breaks, etc., but different enough that I use them for different songs.
That works for me.
There are days when the one I have seems One too many.
How about 1 each of RW, maple and ebony FB's. Ash, alder, mahogany and even pine bodies. Hardtails and vintage tremolos. Different radii and electronics.
In each combination. Infinite diversity in infinite combinations.
So, how many do I need? At least 2- 1 trem, 1 hardtail.
How many do I want? How many ya' got?
That's also the thing, isn't it? I need one for standard tuning, and another one for DADGAD..
Just one good one and a kemper.
I think I need one more. My current, and only, has the custom, high output pickups I built for it. Now I need one for the vintage style set I built. Because that's how I do things. Not get a guitar and change the pickups, but build the pickups first and end up needing guitars for them.........
Got two, need one, and am looking for another.
One vintage, one modern.
Anything else is optional, project, oddball, Gibson, Hagström, bass, orphan ...
With some imaginative switching on the modern, I can cover a lot of ground with the 2 Strats.
Need one...and multiple pickguard configurations
Have one Strat at the moment need to get another one because seriously, my Strat is now taking wear , which is fine but I do want to try prevent major surgery, fretboard,frets etc, so I figure I will spread the load between two. I just don't seem to play my other guitars much anymore, and my Strat is always around and in reach, so it's taken some knocks and the maple is now poly free, frets are looking thin, but its my best guitar ever, if it wasn't for this reason, I'd buy a Tele, wait.........yes oh ok, one Strat is not enough hmmmm here's my final answer two Strats and a Tele...........and my 6 and 12 string acoustics.
Partscaster Blackie does it since 1995 and whenever something else is needed my Jackson Rhoads custom is there and wise versa except it was 1997 I got my Jackson brand new on personal order.
I did at one point in the late '90s have a total of 3 stratocasters including Blackie though there was no real reasons for keeping more than that and so it became.
If I needed a guitar it used to be a higher priority but these days I am still in the only need of my 2 long term above mentioned electric guitars.
So the need of another stratocaster? GAS has left the building for me
More, the merrier.
All of them. I need all of them.
Last time I walked in after buying 2 guitars in succession my misses looked up and asked, "How many goddam guitars do you need ?".
No sort of answer was ever gonna go down well
