Definitely the one $3,000 guitar.
10 $300 guitars take up 10 times more space than a single $3,000 guitar
1 great. I'm not a fan of cheap guitars.
I would opt for the one rather than the many.
I do like variety, but that also comes with a lot more maint, storage, and general upkeep. You only need one really great guitar.
“You can only play one at a time”. Yeah, duh, so what? After you put that one down you can pick up another and play it all by itself, too. Something with P90s. Or a whammy bar. Or...
Or you can keep playing the same one. For eternity.
$300 is kinda low, though. Still, given OP’s options, I’d probably take the ten.
10 $300 guitars pretty much describes my guitar collection (more or less). They're all different flavors, and they're all good. Works for me.
Plus... I'd be afraid to take a $3000 guitar anywhere I'm likely to play.
Was thinking 5 guitars @ $600?
** these guitars sell for less, but add a case, gig bag, strap, cable
- Squire CV '69 Tele Thinline (Mahogany)
- Squire CV '50's Stratocaster ( 2-Tone!)
- new Epj LP Special P-90 ( TV Yellow)
- Guild Starfire I w/ Bigsby Sea Foam Green (cheap one)
- A Cordoba C5 CE ( or similar Yamaha) nylon string, with solid top, cutaway, pickup
I would probably go for three $1,000 guitars.
Yeah...in an either/or, I’d take the one...but dang, the choices and quality at many levels are impressive...I’d do one @ $1500...3@ $500
Lots better ways to break up the investment, as many have pointed out. For me, the diminishing returns after $1500 suggest that I could be very very happy with one @ $1500, one @ $1000, and one @ $500. That should cover a lot of bases, with pretty high quality instruments.
Depends on the guitars, but most likely the one. No way am I maintaining 10 guitars!
I would get two $1000 guitars and an amp.
I like variety, so definitely 10 for $300. But I'm also very practical... so 1 for $3000.
When I bought my PRS CE24 I thought about buying three SE Miras and putting different pickups in each. The CE now is easily my number one favorite guitar. But I still might do the Mira thing. Leave one stock, put some kind of PAF in one, and something else in the other.
Between those two choices, I'd definitely get one $3k guitar.
One good one if those are the only choices. I don't even want 10 electric guitars.
I probably average about $600 per guitar, so I'll say five $600 guitars.
