    My wife says:
    "Whatever makes you happy. Keeping you happy is the most important".

    Sooo...I lost count, I guess I have at least 14 or 15 guitars, more than 50 fx pedals, a few processors, 4 amps, and a ton of studio gear...

    You have half as many guitars as you need and 10 times too many pedals.

    Depends on who you ask :)

    Well, yes, I do, you are right, but I will hopefully have much more in the future...there's nothing wrong with that...

    My secret is never keep all, or even most, guitars at the same place so she can never get an accurate guitar count.

    Years ago i built a guitar display case for guitars and such. In some extra space i added in a secret compartment for rifles.
    When showing it off to the wife i pointed out that it would only hold five rifles.
    She said, "You better damn well keep that in mind. "
    My reply, " I only have three. You better damn well keep that in mind. "
    We're not married anymore.

    My wife isn't interested enough in my guitars to count them. As long as they aren't underfoot, and I save up the cash before I buy, she doesn't object, though I can sometimes feel her internally rolling her eyes.

    The only pressure I feel to keep the herd down comes from ME.

    Whenever my wife says something about me buying amps and guitars I remind her that when I die she can sell them and buy anything she wants. That seems to satisfy her.

    Quick, go buy three more! Put them in a different place from the rest. Then kindly inform her that she missed counting the ones that were in the hall closet/basement/studio/wherever. In the interest of, um, full disclosure.

    If you keep telling her that, one day she will become impatient.

    The "same color" thing works the opposite for me:

    "Why did you by a guitar EXACTLY like one you already have?"

    the one I already have: MIA, tele, sunburst, maple, single coils

    the one I bought: MIK, THINLINE tele, sunburst, maple, WRHBs

    I try to explain they are totally different, SOUND different, but she doesn't get it. All she sees is sunburst/maple/white pickguard.

    This coming from a woman who needs to buy her umpteenth pair of black shoes....
