    Something strange happened to me tonight, and it has me worried...and I am not the type to worry.

    So, I'm sitting there, playing on one of my Teles, looking at the others sitting on the rack, when this little voice in my head goes...

    "Why do you have so many guitars? You don't need that many. Two or three would be enough."

    I shrugged it off, but now I'm worried that something is wrong with me. That's not the thinking of a sane person. Should I schedule an MRI? A mental health evaluation? Anyone gone through something similar? Maybe there's a support group or something?

    Sounds serious, I’d definitely see about an MRI.

    If you're looking for a support group, you found it. I'm sure you don't have enough guitars yet. Get on the internet and start looking for something that you don't have. It may take time. Work through it. You can do it.

    It depends, if you actually play all of them and have usage for them all, then it's not strange. If they literally just sit collecting dust? That's not what instruments are for, they are to be played.

    These feelings are normal and nothing to be worried about. Take a break, maybe eat some beans on toast and have a little lie down.

    Go out right now and buy a duplicate of your least favorite guitar. That way when these thoughts come around again, you have one to sacrifice.

    I've actually got plans to sell that one to fund another one I like better. If I can sell it that is.I always have bad luck with that.

    First thing you got to do is get your 'little voice in your head' ears checked, it's a known fact that little voices say things like "Hey, I bet if you had a new guitar you would be able to play better" and "always pay cash!", they never ever say "you don't need that many".

    You might also consider setting up a hidden camera in the bedroom just to be sure your better half isn't trying some kind of auto-suggestion thing on you, whispering terrible things to you late at night while you are sleeping.

    I'm pretty sure mine does that but I try to be strong and fight it the best I can though come to think of it its been a month since I last bought a guitar...

    I get that voice every so often.

    More often is the voice that says "LOOK AT ALL THIS KILLER GEAR I HAVE!"

    take a good look at them and decide which is your LEAST favorite, then ask a friend to keep it for 1 week...you'll snap right out of it!

    You only need one guitar. Pick one and sell the rest.
