It’s a little difficult to have more than one wife or girlfriend at the same time, but you have as many strats as you like.
Cant play golf with one club!!
Quite a few missing from here but you get the drift
There is much variety to enjoy: SSS, HSS,HSH,HH, push pull for coil splitting, use of bridge and neck pick up together, string one with light guage strings, another with heavy, leave one in standard tuning and others in drop D or other alternate tuning. A person might want a sunburst, a midnight wine, and a sparkle paint job.
It's only money, you only live once and you can't take it with you.
They dont put pockets in a shroud!!!!
and I've just had a walk around a cemetery
I cant find any headstones that say "I bought too many Strats"
Please have a look around your cemetery
1) Compared to cars or motorcycles, guitars are cheap.
2) The body style is my favorite of any guitar. Different pickups sound different so while the guitars may look the same, they sound different so it isn't quite like having two that are identical.
3) Even color changes between identical models can get me to have two of the identical model. I was torn between a white and red player strat and decided to buy one of each. One is downstairs in my primary practice area and one is upstairs in s spare bedroom where I'll sometimes just play for fun.
I bet there is something in your life where you do something similar and your response might be, "Well yeah but this is different . . ." Not being mean but I have seen too many people pass judgment on where I spend my money and yet that person has three camera bodies that all "take the same photo" yet that photographer says, "No it isn't like just a guitar. These cameras are all different from one another."
Pick your poison I mean hobby and try not to go broke. But life is short so if you want it and can afford it, buy it.
Different strats inspire different things from me and my playing.
I had this discussion with myself a couple of years ago. It’s way easier to grab 3 guitars to alternate over an afternoon jam session. Trying to ride 3 motorbikes at the same time is a little more difficult. I’m paring down my motorbike collection and ramping up my Strats.
Why has my wife got 30 pairs of shoes?
Keep at least two bikes around . . . one for touring and one for just day riding. Maybe one ADV style and a dirt bike as well. In addition to being able to switch between three guitars in one session, you can also play 365 days per year. So when the bikes are snowed in, the guitars are singing.
You and I are geographically pretty close and while our riding season is short, we have some of the best riding in the world.
Lets not get on to bikes!!!!!
Why have all those Strats??? 'Cause ya got room doofus... now go buy a few more, I see a spot for 'em right over there..
That finish looks great!
^^^ This. Others have given essentially the same answer, but this puts it most succinctly.
I’m more of a fender guy than a strat guy, currently owning 2 strats, 3 teles and a jazzmaster.
I get why one would want just strats, because a stratocaster is enough.
Why many strats? Because one strat isn’t enough.
Probably at one time collecting strats was thought of as decent investment. In other words holding onto a strat for 20 yrs would increase it's value significantly. Now that's far from the truth. Most all strats sell used for about $850 excluding a few specials runs.
Now that strats can't be sold for a good profit might as well hold onto them.
I have one Strat, the Epi V and several Gibsons.
That works for me.
That’s too many. I’m gonna have to confiscate a few of these.
