    My wife is a musician.

    Me: "I have bought another guitar."

    She: "OK!".

    I keep referring to the red guitar when my wife and I talk about my herd. She says, "I like that one". There are 3 red guitars in my collection.

    My wife came in and saw a guitar I have had for 8 years and asked where it came from.
    I told her, and she says, "how come you never play this one?" which was the reason it was out...
    I did just count up, and I have a few too many. Coming to a CL soon...

    I always assumed that my wife paid little enough attention that she wouldn't know the difference between my guitars or even notice if I got a new one. Until...

    There was a guitar magazine lying around and she found a picture of a guy playing a tele and said "hey that looks a lot like your guitar." I was prepared to condescendingly say 'why yes, they are both telecasters...' but upon glancing at the picture I realized they are both double-bound telecasters with a strat neck pickup and five-hole, three ply pickguards. Other than the color, they're more or less identical. I'm not sure if she noticed all of that but it made me question if I could sneak another one past.

    Doesn't matter whether she beats you. It matters whether you like it.

    See, I married a woman 12 years younger than me. She'll always be hot and young. Thinking ahead, I was.

    My wife wanted me to buy a PRS, because she really likes the headstock. So I did.

    Lately, she's been saying that there's room on the wall for another guitar, and that the White Falcon sure is gorgeous.

    That's brilliant too and I think it may actually work!

    I've heard this quite often "but you already have one in that color", meanwhile the one in the same color is a Les Paul, and I'm looking at a Duo Jet...the Duo Jet is especially challenging cause she also thought it looked exactly the same as the LP:eek: :cry: :lol:

    This made me realise something

    My girlfriend is a designer and very hot on colours. She could split out 12 indistinguishable shades of beige

    Any time I have a new thing she spots it right away, despite not knowing whether something is acoustic or a solid bass or how many I have

    I now realise this is down to her spotting 5 different colours of what I think of as blonde wood and knowing from the tiniest swatch she never saw it before

    I don't stand a chance, do I?

    My wife bought me this on our first anniversary, she told me that the guitar I had on a stand in the living room was the wrong colour, and that this one would suit the furnishings better. Every time I sell a guitar she asks "that's not the guitar I bought you, is it?". I have sold about a dozen guitars inthat time, not one of them sunburst or semi-acoustic.

    This thread also made me realise that if someone asked me to describe all my girlfriend's clothes I would stop after blue jeans, black trousers and white t shirt

    I could describe every guitar my buddy owns though

    If anyone on here ever acted as witness in court you might find people say you have a 'selective memory' because you cannot remember every detail in your life

    I flick back 'I remember memorable things' to this

    All your guitars should be black. Give her a challenge, at least......;)

    Rotate all guitars daily and place them in front of mirrors when possible .

    Naaaaah - this is the internet

    How many of us can make the claim that "our wife says we have 10" (or 9 if we're being honest)?
    And, no; I am NOT recommending "pics or it ain't true"
    :eek:

    I think the critical question here is whether the OP’s wife’s error was due to mis-counting or rounding. If this obscure branch of wife/guitar mathematics is related to rounding, well then...

    I presently own four guitars: two Teles, a Hamer Sunburst, and an acoustic. If a wife applies rounding to this smallish herd, the result will be that I own ZERO guitars. This number would make my wife happy. I’m starting a partscaster project. When it’s finished I will own five guitars, but after we apply the wife math, I will suddenly jump from no guitars to ten! Can you imagine the uproar?

    I think we need some scholarly types to fully study and describe this branch of mathematics so that we may fully understand its potential results.

    That is a tough one. The outcome is hard to predict if you buy one or two more. Keep in mind the the sayings:

    "If Mom ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. If Dad ain't happy, ain't nobody cares."

    Least favourite colour. Shows all my fingerprints

    Also, she could tell 10 duplicate blacks apart. As I type this I realise this can only have 1 explanation - witchcraft

    That story she told me about a house falling from the sky onto her sister now makes sense
