    I would like one of each color in maple & rosewood fingerboard. All 60's Reissue from 1960 to 1965. That would be enough.

    16 Strats & many other non-Strats. 2- 91 Ultra's, because they are just cool. 1-1989 Strat plus deluxe, 1991 CS - set neck Ultra, 1982 AVRI & 1984 AVRI, 2004 Masterbuilt 1955 - my birth year. 2007 CS closet classic, this takes too much thought & time & 8 more Strats. IMG_1169.JPG t IMG_0936.JPG
    These pics have been on here before.
    2004 -50th anniversary & 2014 60th anniversary 1 of 1954.
    1977 AM standard Natural maple neck. Jimmy Vaughn signature- my only mim. & 4 more! & 3 Telecasters (2- CS)

    I can't imagine having another guitar that I would want to play more than my 57 AVRI. So anything I would buy would just be to gather dust. I guess my answer is one.

    Need? I have one in active use and that's all I need. If you gig it's nice to show off your "collection" but be wary of thieves.

    Ditto, mostly, But two LPs; one has p90s and the other buckers, so not really duplicates.

    I have thre:

    1. Custom Shop 2009 swamp ash Custom Deluxe
    2. USA Strat with EMG-DG20 (Gilmore Cleans)
    3. A K-Line S-Type with Lollar blonds.

    That's about all I need. Covers just about everything unless you count my Hot Rod Tele as a 4th Stat!

    I think I'd like three to cover my tonal bases.

    1 - modern partsocaster, floyd, locking nut, splittable mini bucker in the bridge, flat fingerboard with stainless frets
    2 - modern but trad-sounding, 2-post bridge with vintage saddles, 3 noiseless single-coil pups
    3 - something vintage and a bit beaten-up, like a roadworn 60s sonic blue w/rosewood, traditional bridge, that sort of thing.

    Absolutely love these foto"s.
    By the way, what is the name for a whole bunch of strats.?. Is it a gaggle of strats, a flock of strats, a herd of strats.?. I think it really has to be a "strat pack" don"t it

    That's just plain greedy! It's like the Irishman's ever-filling bottle of Guinness. When asked by the Leprechaun what he wanted as a special "second wish", he replied, "Oil have another one o' d'ese!"

    I believe it's a herd. But maybe it's a heard? :D
