    I’m 45. I currently have 45 guitars.

    Wish I hadn’t pointed that out to my wife.

    I'm 53 with 9 guitars. This thread makes me feel virtuous. I am currently looking down at all you non-virtuous people. Pah, I say to you. Pah.

    That’s a lot of guitars for a 10 year old. And married to boot?

    I've been playing for 47 years (not that it shows) and I've owned 42 guitars. I'll probably nab a few more before I'm done.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one with a problem.

    Your wife is one fine lady to let you have 45 guitars.

    No unfortunately not. I was born in 75. I have a 77’ Takamine dreadnought. That’s the closest.

    I'm 73 and currently only have 30+ guitars. If I counted all of the guitars that I've owned after 62 years of playing, the number would go way up, but, who's counting?

    If you live to 90, you can at least double that figure, or more ...

    I have 8 now, and have owned 8 in the past I no longer possess.

    I've sworn off selling or trading guitars, and I regret them all, except one -

    The Epiphone Emperor was a dead muffled dog.

    [edit] forgot about the lap steel!

    [edit] forgot about the plywood kit guitar from 1978. Hmm, SUPER distortion :)
