I finally found a guitar I can truly call my #1. Only guitar I've ever owned that I bond with. I used to think all of this "bonding" was nonsense, but I think I was wrong there. Anyhow, I'm with Jeremy here. A guitar to feel confident in and love, and 1 or 2 others as backups, or for variety pickup-wise, is practical for a lot of us.
To those who collect guitars, rock on and enjoy 'em.
