    I think I'm around 2 dozen now including basses and a lone mandolin. Studio equipment and golf gear have taken over as the main source of gas on my fires. :lol::lol:

    After consulting with the accounting firm of Countless, Countmore & Cantcount, the latest number appears to be 15: 8 electric 7 acoustic, plus banjo, electric mandola and 2 basses. That's down from a high water mark of 25...or was it 26?

    Holding at 11. (Thought I had nine until this thread.)

    3 flatops (two fancy, one plain)
    1 solid body (it's a thin line but that makes it a solid body to me)
    1 semi hollow
    2 archtops
    1 resonator
    1 banjitar
    1 12 string
    1 bass

    Four amps including the one on loan to someone for three years who just loaned it to someone else.

    I really, really, like it...a buddy has a newer D-18 and my DM more than holds it's own against it. Really good bang for the buck, IMHO.

    written by Don Sampson, first recorded by Charlie Daniels. There was a period when CD was playing fiddle for Bocephus, so it might have been on his set list.

    I have 23 guitars. That's too many (for me), but I'll be damned if I'm gonna sell any!

    This is exactly how I buy my used gear.


    I only buy at used at Pawnshops, CL , or FB Marketplace, and that's it

    No online buying at all
    I have to be able to audition and inspect any instrument in person.

    This way I can haggle based on the originality and condition of the instrument

    Most of the gear Ibuyat wholesale or below, at about what GC or Sam Ash might pay.

    This gives me a quick outif I have to move an instrument immediately, so I can my money back or more

    A lot of guy say you shouldn't have to worry about resale value when you buy gear.


    For me it's one of the most important factors

    Buying like I do has allowed me to build up my collection with not a lot of investment.


    You really have to be smart when you buy, or you're really throwing away A LOT of money.

    I got into minimalism somehow... I try to own just what I need. Got one guitar, one amp, one pedal board. My dad and brother are the opposite, they hoard stuff, stuff attics/basements with stuff... I know my dad grew up poor so he saves everything... I had a couple small apartments, maybe that's why I am so minimal.

    you have it slightly backwards, I had that same strategy for a while.

    It's much easier to buy a guitar off of reverb than it is to change the strings of 1 of your old guitars.

    So whenever you need to change your strings, set it in the corner and simply by a new guitar.

    yay!!! for 90 guitars

    I've got six. Pretty happy there but I could be tempted by an EJ Strat
