    I don’t keep count but I think I have around 15 plus or minus guitars, amps I only have 5 or 6, I have more pedals than guitars and amps put together

    I would put a family photo but I’m tired and am gonna hit the sack before too long would probably take me an hour to get them all out and back in there cases

    I guess if we’re just showing by themselves I can post a few

    Uh oh my photos just disappeared (okay got a couple to load)

    @11 votes and not one of us was smart enough to buy 1 tele and one of EVERY AMP. Guess we'll see if the forward thinking folks are around.......

    The entire heard. I now keep the Strat on the right and the Tele on the left. Acoustic stays in its case. I guess I have half as many amps as I do guitars, but the amp has 100 voices, so maybe I have more (virtual) amps?

    I’ve only got 2 amps and I only use one (my Vox AC15C1).

    I have 4 electric six-strings, 3 acoustics (6-, 12- and nylon-string), a bass, a cigar-box guitar and a lap steel. So guitars win very easily.

    Here’s most of the herd on the rack:

    More guitars than amps, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a lot of amps.

    4:1 ratio guitars to amps. That's all I'm saying.

    12 electric guitars
    4 acoustic guitars
    2 bass guitars
    8 amps

    Odd thing: I enjoyed playing guitar more when I had just three guitars and two amps.

    Now I am always searching for tones and sounds. If I play a Beatle song I have to play it on the same gear they used. Has to sound like that Beatles song. Back when I had just three guitars I simply played the song.


    Here's some of my Beatle guitars. I don't play "Can't Buy Me Love" on my Stratocaster and Ovation. When the Strat and Ovation was all I had, I did. And I had fun doing it.

    At my high water mark it was 5 electrics, one acoustic and 4 amps. Now it's just an electric, an acoustic and an amp. I loved having lots of gear but I got it out of my system. I have exactly what I need.

    Here are most of my amps. The guitars are everywhere, like rats.
