    I'm not going to admit to how many guitars I own, but I have enough Telecasters to adequately defend myself for a long time should a zombie apocalypse occur.

    That's interesting. I'm always excited when a new guitar shows up and give it a lot of playing time, but my #1 and #2 and probably my #3 are locked in. I can't imagine anything displacing those guitars.

    I love your wife. She'll stick with a guy who has 45 guitars. That's 9 times as many as I have. My wife has learned to mostly ignore them but if for instance there's an unfamiliar color or style suddenly on the wall then we have to have a conversation.

    I now have a goal. AND I have the advantage of telling my wife "but HE has that many"

    That sounds like the "I finally got it fixed up" conversation.

    You have to add a negative 3 to your guitar count for that. You just severely hurt your total.

    You didn't think you weren't eventually going to have to answer for buying that thing, did ya?

    65, 6 geetars ... so today I was hiking in the woods with my wife ... I mentioned that I was thinking of selling or trading the '66 Firebird (that was GIVEN to me years ago) for a(nother) Tele that I would play much more often ... Did she say, oh cool honey, so what color might you get? NO! she got real quiet and then asked how many guitars I have already ... and then brought up the new carpeting we need, and that if I was gonna go buying more guitars that she'd be calling the carpet store tomorrow. I told her well that's fine but tried to explain how the two things are unrelated and independent of one another ... to no avail, haha; and once again I am reminded to just never bring that stuff up at all to begin with!
