    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?

    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 :)
