    She said I have 10 guitars. I just counted and I only have 9 including my uke.... Thinking I should buy another cause maybe she wouldn't notice!

    Cheers

    No, you buy another, because she's your wife and therefore always right. You don't want to open the can of worms of pointing out her error and correcting her. You can, however, make her right.

    Happy wife happy life.

    Good thought. You wouldn't want to make a liar out of her!

    You can find a beat up Schecter C1 or Ibanez ARZ model guitar for real cheap. And they can be very fun to play! She may not know you spent a dime...

    Been married 16 years, and we've come full circle on this thing.

    I had 19 guitars and 11 amps before we got married. I sold a ton of it to buy her engagement ring. Got married with 3 amps and 3 guitars. She didn't know until a few years ago how I was able to afford the ring that I bought her. When she learned that, and put 2 and 2 together... "So that's where all of your guitars went ..?!?!" ...she started encouraging me to purchase guitars that would be "keepers"...as in, not guitars that I would simply trade off within a year or two.

    So I'm back up to about ten now. She even gave me a Taylor classical/nylon string guitar for Christmas two years ago. She saw me play it in a music store, then went back the next day by herself and bought it for me.

    My wife does this, rounds up the number of guitars I have. I like your logic of wanting to make sure that she's always right.

    My wife can generally tell the difference between colors of guitars being new or old, but gave up on counting and keeping track a long time ago. I have my own rules about one in one out at this point that I generally follow, well, maybe more guidelines than rules...:D

    She's just testing you, dude....checking to see what you will do if you think she doesn't know the "score". Don't fall into that trap....there will be heck to pay on down the road.

    Now, that's a good woman, Tex, but what's the cost? Does she beat you at night?

    Your wife is by actual count worth at least sixteen billion dollars in U.S. dollars, maybe more.

    I've hit saturation point with guitars. As a learner, I don't "need" more than one or two but I've started to "like" guitars. I acquired most on the basis that, as I improve / decide which suit me best, I'll eventually sell / trade them to the point that I've have two or three max.

    You have too many colors. I find my wife can count colors but cannot easily tell the difference between a strat and a tele, so....

    This is the most revealing statement. You actually had to count since you didn't even know how many you had.
