    I’m in the verge of total self destruction, but thanks for asking! There are still many guitars to get my collection nice and neat. But even the best guitars can’t make me a better person or better player...

    That's a very nice collection of guitars. I would have to set up a schedule of when to get to play each one.

    My dear departed Beatlemaniac brother had nearly all of the guitars in the picture, but I don't think all at one time. He had the later, black version of the Ric 325. I don't think he had the Martin, but our other brother does have a D-28. Combination of easiest to play and best sounding acoustic I have ever played.

    He also had the Rocky Strat, the red Les Paul, and a brown sunburst Casino.

    Just not all at one time.

    Hang in there, man. I have been there, and it’s always one drink away. Just remember... those beautiful guitars, your family, and everything else that matters to you will fit inside a shot glass.
    Take care, Musti!

    That's a nice "couple" of guitars.
    No Hofner Violin Bass?
    Not that it matters, but are they "contemporary" versions....or "period correct"????? ;)

    What a gorgeous bunch of Guitars. By the way, where do you live?

    Also put that pick guard back on that Casino before I steal them all. :D

    Great collection, great guitars one and all... fwiw it’s not a Beatles thing for me but I feel a Ric 12-string wants to be part of my collection too, and you’re not helping!!

    Don’t worry how well you play — no one needs to play guitar well so long as they play with love and enjoyment.

    Nice collection! You should add a Bass VI and a Gibson J-160E. I have one of the John Lennon Peace versions of the latter. Definitely not the world’s greatest acoustic (or acoustic-electric) guitar but it has a unique sound. When I brought mine home, it practically forced me to play every Beatles song I knew.
