Well if they were, I'd just have one. Duh.😁
6 stats, different colors, pickups etc.
3 Telles

Mixture of lots of other brands.

Precision Bass----------National Duolian
Fender Nylon String----Yairi 6-String
Washburn 6-String-----Yairi 12-String
CV 50's Tele-------------'69 Strat
Martin Backpacker (now a Martin-Paul)

I would group the steel two 6-Strings acoustics, and the two electrics.
I bought the newest acoustic a couple of days ago.

SG, tele, Les Paul Special ( my old guitar ‘74), and a strat that NEVER gets played. A nice cheapie Washburn acoustic.
A little different, I guess.

I'll just drop this link here: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/my-guitars-pic-heavy.1012243/

I've since picked up a handful of cheap guitars, about half of them strat-style in weird colors or configurations, and gotten rid of a few of my old guitars.

I enjoy the ergonomics of a strat and the looks of a les paul, but I try to make sure they all look or sound or play differently from each other; I don't want any identical guitars.

4 guitars: Ibanez Semihollow, Tele, Peavey bridge humbucker and an acoustic.

4 basses: P, PJ, J, acoustic.

Most similar are the 2 P basses, otherwise I try to keep a variety around!

Not to make another asinine comment, but:
Yes they are.
All right handed six strings 25.5 scale, with one exception being my lone acoustic, it has a shorter scale.
I don't have a collection anymore, just a few players.

A guitar is a tool, so I see little point in having them be the same UNLESS you're gigging a lot. A spare is always handy there.

There are themes that run through my guitars (like wiring) but each is different. Hanging on my rack now are my Pacifica 604W with Filtertrons in it and a self made S type baritone with a hard tail and Alumitones. Honestly, those two cover all the ground that needs to be, but where's the fun in that? Next build is a T style baritone with a 27 or 27.7" scale as opposed to the 28.625 I have now.

Well, a few different acoustics including a classical guitar, but four HSSs Strat-like guitars with different radius and pickups and body colors... two are partscasters - good "working" guitars for gigging. Yep, I need a Tele. :p

All my guitars are radically different: different body shapes, scale lengths, pickups, and finishes. The only thing all of my builds have in common is the stewmac fret wire. There is not enough room in my life for more than one tele, strat, or whatever. I would never own two teles unless I was in the process of swapping one for another.

No, they're all different. I have three Telecasters...but each is very different: CAR 4-way partscaster, Squier HH and a DIY Esquire. I also have an HSS Strat partscaster.

I have 4 acoustics, similar situation: 1980s Gallagher G-45 Dreadnought, 1915 Gibson L-1 archtop, 1894 "Lion" parlor, 1950s Harmony tenor. There's a lap steel in there too.

The banjo collection (~30) is primarily 5-string...but very diverse.
