    Dreadnoughts

    Got four of them (five if you count that Taylor Grand Pacific thing as a dread - I dont). Three of them are hog bodies.

    What constitutes "duplication"?

    I have 4 acoustics and 5 electrics. So right there is arguably major duplication within each category.

    Acoustics
    - 2 OM size. One with sitka top/ RW back and sides. One all mahogany. Are those duplicates?
    - 2 Dreads. Different manufacturers and quite different guitars. But probably duplicates?

    Electrics
    - 4 superstrats. Whoops. But if you break them down
    -- One with 2 HB and 24 frets
    -- One with HSS and 22 frets
    -- One HM with maple board
    -- One HM with RW board

    - One old Tele

    Certainly more than I need. And I could argue no actual duplication. But . . .

    Five years ago I had a super cheap parts Strat just because I figured everyone should have a Strat.

    I'm not sure what happened. At some point I thought I should have a nicer Strat & started a search to find my "Me Strat". Many have come and gone. Very few left with the parts they came with as I picked off my favorite this & that.

    Here's the most recent pic

    Not in this pic is 4 more that are in transition "parts wise".

    Here are a few other pics from the last 2-3 years.

    I guess teles? I have three t-shaped guitars, none a Fender, and all kinda different. One has double P90s. Two have hipshot Benders. Plus my strat is kinda set up like a tele, with a three way switch and T-like bridge pickup.
    Everything else is in its own category.

    I don't think I have too many but I'm always reconsidering the ones I have.

    - Earlier this year I got an Italia Maranello Semi Hollow 2HB which I'm calling my "blues guitar". I really like it even though it's got a 25" scale. All my others are 25.5".

    - I'm getting the old Peavey Reactor T-type back into rotation after many years in the closet. I don't like the neck as well as most of my others but maybe I'll get used to it. This will be for Tele type sounds I guess! I have not explored that too much. I do have Arlen Roth's "Nashville Guitar" book around here somewhere.

    - Yamaha AES-800 is a 2HB with a 5-way. It's a bit hotter than the Italia so it's my "rock guitar". One of the in between positions is very twangy, almost piezo like. I always wonder why more people don't wire 2HB with a 5-way like this.

    - Squier Jazzmaster - I put shoelaces through the strings to keep that resonance from coming through at higher gains. This one has really nice clean tones and can rock as well. The trem lets you go dooiiinnnnnnggggg!

    - G&L S-500 Tribute - my only nod to Strat type tones. A really nice guitar, the heaviest one in the collection, and the one that I'm least sure about keeping.

    I've got seven Strats (four partscasters, two Fenders, one Squier) and four Teles (three Fenders and one partscaster). Most of these are slightly different configurations: different woods, different pickups---one of the Strats is a 12-string.

    I've got various other guitars, but not more than one of any model. (One SG, just in case.) I have two Rickenbackers, but they are very different models (360 vs. 450).

    3+? Right off the top of my head: Teles, Strats, Les Pauls, you get the picture.

    And every single one of them is unique. So really I don't have too many of any guitar, I just have one of each.
