    Play each of the guitars for all the types of music you play. If in a band then gig with them individually. Telecasters are easier to upgrade and maintained than the others and with the right amp(s) and effects can cover most music styles in a convincing manner.

    the late Mrs chemobrain never gave me grief about my interesting guitars or my practicing as she knew exactly what my hands were doing and where they were when I wasn't at work. With regard to your options, I do appreciate strong healthy relationships always have an element of compromise. "Good for the Goose good for the Gander" always seemed fair to me.
    Circumstances don't define my ethics, my ethics define how I will be indifferent circumstances .
    and to wander along a train of thought, one significant other and one guitar, both seem to be a handful

    I knew it, I just knew it. It was unfair for Joe Bonamassa to own his collection of guitars, but it'd be okay for the OP to keep buying until he surpassed Joe. I'm onto you, and your gang of Joe bashers!:eek::eek::eek::D

    I've got 6, play 3 regularly, and am really digging the idea of adding a tele...

    After playing and trading for just over 60 years, I have to wonder if anyone could be happy with less than 30 guitars.

    I have done it, and could easily again.
    It wouldn't really even matter, as long as it had more than 1 pickup.
    I guess, maybe I wouldn't want a BIG fat hollowbody (like my '53 Gretsch Electro II) as an only, but…hey…it would double as an acoustic.
    I might have 15 electrics, and I suppose any one could be the only, and I would be fine.
    I do like to have a backup at gigs, though…and 1 set up for slide.

    Just one? For me, it would be my Strat. It’s like a Swiss Army knife. Except it can’t open bottles of wine. Or beer. Or cans of food. Or cut rope. Or butter bread. Or work as a screwdriver.

    Ok, I’ll take the Swiss Army knife.

    I have 19 guitars, both acoustic and electric. Among those are 9 telecasters, Both Fenders and parts casters. Each one of those have their own voice due to the different pickups I have installed in them. I need to thin out the herd a bit, but I am having problems deciding which ones. I am going to have to do a lot of playing in order to make that decision.
