    Like I said on another thread, this isn't Guitars Anonymous. We're here to encourage your habit, not curb it. So go forth and buy my friend. :thumb:

    Hello,

    Yes, I've acquired 3 x Classic Series '70's re-issues because "They're the one's for me". They happily sit along-side my 89 Strat Plus that's now a case queen.

    Once the exchange rates turn favorable again, I may consider the natural body one with a maple board to complete the available quartet. ( In truth though, I don't need it & have too many already. The black one lives under the bed as NOS, the White one was my No.1 for 10-years until I bought the Sunburst one a couple of years ago. It became my No.1 not only because it looks so cool, but the neck-date reveals its birthday as RUSH-day, 21,11,12. So there's something in that LOL ! ).

    If you find "the" guitar model, I see no problem in acquiring more, since anything else will automatically be a lesser guitar in your hands, regardless of what it may be or costs. I just got very lucky !!!

    Cheers,

    Rastus

    No.

    Too many different guitars around to buy two exactly the same.

    When I find a Strat that I really like, I do buy additional ones. The color is not really that relevant. It is the neck and feel that make me buy additional ones. I have 3 early AVRI 57 Strats because the old AVRI 57 neck is one of my all time favorite necks.

    Not for me, if I have 2 Strats they have to be totally different hence a Clapton Blackie and CS 60s which I doubt I could ever replicate anyway! ImageUploadedByStrat-Talk forum1451813533.619339.jpg ImageUploadedByStrat-Talk forum1451813576.922933.jpg

    Two years ago I bought a classic player 60's strat to be used as a back up guitar for my USA deluxe strat.
    After about six months it was my main guitar and my deluxe became the back up.
    And another four months later I got a good deal on a used classic player 60's so I bought it as a back up and my USA deluxe stayed at home eversince
    So for me it makes perfectly good sense to have two of the same guitars.
    I found it to be very handy on stage when something happens to one of them I can switch to the other in seconds without having too much of a sound difference.

    I think Yngwie wins this, his don't seem to be totally all the same, but still...

    I have multiple Strats and Les Pauls but there's differences between all of them, even if those differences are mostly superficial.

    No, but I do it with clothing all the time. Particularly hats! I've got two identical back-ups of my favourite hat in the closet!

    Does your wife actually let you out of the house with her while wearing that thing? I've got a couple hats that I am banned from wearing in mixed company :(

    I think it's a cool hat. My son has a similar one in grey. We think it goes very well with a strat (he'll be getting a Squier Mini Strat for his birthday in a few weeks).

    Yeah he's a cutie :). He and I started (separate) lessons with the same teacher in September. He has a 3/4 classical but doesn't practice much. I'm hoping the strat will inspire him more - especially as he wants to play Led Zep's Whole Lotta Love.
