    That's just 'hoarding'...

    I have 1 electric, 1 acoustic and 1 bass. That's not too many, by my reckoning.

    Yes. I don't need a chart or algorithm.

    Too complicated, I got lost. The best I can figure out is I have too many guitars and should buy more.

    Too many? Nah! Every guitar that I have has a purpose and sound. I'm at 5; 2 acoustics, and 3 electrics.

    One acoustic & 3 electrics are too much, given that I only play one, in a limited fashion.
    However thinking of any reduction is not on the horizon.

    Hmmm.
    11 guitars, 2 basses, 6 amps.
    No wife.
    Lotsa gigs, when there’s lots of gigs to be had.
    Honestly, 3 of my guitars, and both my basses help me earn a little money.
    I truly need nothing.
    I guess I’m right where I want to be.
    Yeah!

    I would say that I have just the right amount.

    More than 20, and less than 25.

    ;)

    My path on this chart is fairly simple:

    wife > she owned way more than 10 pairs of shoes > buy more guitars


    If only it were that simple in practice.

    Not enough, so I need more. I’m on a flight right now and my iPad is low so here goes.

    The basic needs:

    Acoustics; Taylor, Martin Gibson, or Guild
    One each with cutaway one each without, one dread, one 000, one Grand auditorium

    Gibson les Paul one custom, one standard one traditional
    SG one humbucking and one P90s
    Gibson archtop 175 etc...

    Fender; Telecaster, Stratocaster one each blond and rosewood. One each single coils, humbucking pickups etc...

    Please feel free to add to the list. My battery is just about dead and we’re hitting turbulence!
