    I don't play my Dan Armstrongs anymore. I'll likely never sell those.

    I have some old Ibanez RS335s that haven't daylight in years. The market really doesn't support their sale, so they sit.

    Three out of four, the fourth is a bass, I'm not really focusing on that at this point in time.

    4 guitars: Strat, Tele, SG, and an acoustic. Plus a Jazz bass and a P bass.

    While my main players are the tele, acoustic, and P bass, none go unplayed for long. I do use the others whenever their particular features suit what I need. In fact, the past couple weeks have been all about string changes and set-up tweaks all around.

    You are in luck I just started my guitar storage business. You ship your cased guitar to my secure climate controlled location and for a nominal 5 dollar a month fee your guitar will be safe and out of everyones way. :)

    Ok, Now I have an inventory. If you would all just kindly send along your addresses, that would be great. :whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling:

    I have three electrics; main Strat, second Strat , & a hollowbody (which I play regularly, but less than the Strats)

    Have 4 electrics, use 2 at the moment (one in standard tuning, the other in open G).
    One of the less used guitars is my first one, and that one hardly gets played at all now (an Italian strat knock off, pretty average), the other is my tele, and I grab it from time to time to keep it happy.

    It's not looking hopeful at the moment, but I've been here before, I'm not giving up.

    I own three electrics and two acoustics. I play the acoustics most these days, but I play two of the electrics a good amount, a hardtail Robert Cray Strat with a Road worn 50’s neck, and a road worn tele (yes I love those necks more than anything else Fender makes). The third is a P90 Epiphone ES339 and if I don’t start playing it more within the next several months, it’s probably gone. I love P90s and that guitar plays great, but I’m pretty ruthless about getting rid of stuff I don’t use. And I organically always seem to reach for the strat or tele and only pick up the Epi every now and then because I feel like I should since I own it, which is a stupid reason to play a guitar... So it’s on probation.

    I have 20 guitars. All of which get played. Some more than others depending on the season I am in and the music project I am working on. The two that dont get played as much as the others have tiny vintage frets right now and I haven't had time to refret them to my liking yet. When I do they will be used more often for sure.

    i try to rotate all my electrics for home practice, gig backup guitars and for rehearsal. I very rarely use any of my acoustics. It is fun though and not a chore, I always get a kick out of picking one of my guitars up I haven't used in a while, and at over 30 guitars there are always some which haven't been used in a while ;)

    I have a confession to make... I have never, ever in my life, played a guitar with P90's...

    If anything goes unplayed for long periods it’s my amplifiers.
