    The bicycle version is much simpler:

    Rule 12:
    While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

    edit: i own 3

    Alright! I'll tell my wife my next purchase has been justified by a Guitar Squid.

    I took the second-fastest route to "Buy more guitars". I guess that settles it.

    As the country song says, that's like having a girl too pretty, a car too fast, or too much fun.

    I don't name my guitars, so I got lost on that question.

    I don't need no stinking flow chart to tell me that one can never have too much of something that they enjoy. :)

    There's a guy on Squier Talk who has "over 600". That's up there in Bonamassa territory.

    I have one acoustic, one classical, one bass, and four electrics. I am contemplating selling two electrics, although I don't need $$ or want something else. My wife has no interest in how much I spend on guitars. I don't need, or more to the point, want, any more guitars.

    In answer to the OP's question, I may have two electrics too many.

    "Pictures, or it never existed" - well, it's too easy to say "I have 600 guitars" without serious pictures... :lol::lol::lol:

    I have simultaneously too many guitars but also not enough at the same time.
