Wow. After reading through that I will sleep well tonight knowing that the world is not going to run out of amps soon. In order of acquisition mine are:

Late 50s Gibson Gibsonette. 2 6V6 volume only. Great little amp.
Dean Markley CD 60. Currently on sabbatical until I get it serviced. More amp then I will ever need again and heavy but I bought it new in 1984 and probably couldn’t get much for it so I guess it’s a keeper.
Edit: knew I’d forget one.
Fender SS Princeton 65. Took some resoldering to get it reliable and a darker sounding speaker to tame the spikey top end but it’s a great amp to grab for a jam or get together when I don’t want to baby sit my vintage or new stuff. Lots of volume and the gain channel ain’t bad if you don’t turn it up too far. See, not a tube snob.
VHT Special 6. Really like this amp but mine has been unreliable since day one.
Vintage Sound 15. Wonderful gift from my family this year. Loving it!

Cabinets: diy 1x15 Pine open back with vintage Jensen PR15

2x12 closed back diy off CL. Loaded w/2 square mag Eminence 12s (70s era)

My buddy gave me a 60s era Supro widow maker in severe disrepair. Can’t recall the model name (edit:Bantam) but it has an oddball power tube. Wish I had the skills or knew somebody that could make this thing into something useful but I don’t so it will probably gather dust.

Only two now, Fender Super Sonic 60 & an old Line 6 amp for back-up (If I need it).

Back in my gigging days I had several, haven't gigged in years and there's no reason to have a load of amps taking up space at home.

Just two. I'm back in apartment life so any more than that isn't practical, really.

Marshall JCM 800 SC20H - live rig at the rehearsal space
Marshall AVT150 combo - practice amp at home. It itself is kind of impractical, but it was a gift from my dad and I keep the volume low.

If I want more variety, the studio we record at twice a year has more for experimentation.

That's what a decent modeling unit with IR loading is good for, inexpensive experimenting with different amp sounds and, at apartment/spouse friendly volumes.
OK, you've convinced me. Matchless into Captor X incoming!!!!!!!!

Just kidding...maybe.

6 working guitar amps and 1 bass amp.
My homebuilt 6v6 amp gets the most use.
Homebuilt 6l6 gets used mostly for outdoor events.
Modded Pro Jr mostly for jams.
MV 50 clean is great as a backup, for practice, and for church.

3

Two of them are low watt tube amps a friend built for me and the 3rd is a small off brand solid state amp I found at a garage sale for peanuts. I can't even remember the brand name, but for the money it sounds pretty decent.

I have three. Sometimes I feel like getting some late 80's or early 90's Peavey amp, but by now I am more than happy with my boxes here.

Bass Amplifier: Peavey TKO 115 bW (1995)
Guitar amplifiers: Maxon-Ibanez GX-30 (1981), Dean Markley KV-15 (late 80s???)
