I'm going to indulge myself a little and share a nutshell history of myself. Born 1961 in Canada so lots of good music around while a child. Started guitar in the summer of '69 (really) as the magical fascination of guitars that were 'electric' was just too strong to resist. Teenage years in the 1970s full of learning Zeppelin, Beatles, Aerosmith and all the rest. Guitars cost real money then so the best setup I managed to get was a Gibson L6s and a Traynor 70w head and 4x10 cabinet. Played in a few bands. In the 1980s lost interest in electrics (the shred and poodle hair thing lost me) and focused on acoustic playing. Travelled and settled in England. Family happened. 1990s moved to a field in Ireland. Chickens, goats, built my own house, etc. Rediscovered electric guitars and amps with quality tone (as did many people then) and kind of fell into gigging bands. Found myself being a semi pro musician and did thousands of gigs (and discovered Telecasters coincidentally). As I was still raising a family my guitars were mostly functional and I could justify 2 at a time. Main and backup. The last 10 years the gigging has tailed off, became an empty nester....then marriage ended....then found a new gal and am now retired early due to arthritis and (finally) diagnosed autism. We have a cottage in Ireland and an apartment in Virginia. Now I find myself with about a dozen guitars. Here's the point of this thread.....WHY do I have lots of guitars now when I rarely play outside the house? Main reason, I suppose is because I like them and because I can. I like modding and tinkering. I like playing them. I like looking at them....and that has become about as important as how a guitar sounds and plays. Just seeing them on the wall is awesome, and a beautiful guitar makes me want to pick it up...which I often do. I have 4 strats in different colours, just for the colours. Last month I had a Squier Bullet strat sent from a shop in Italy for no other reason than it was turquoise. I'm unbelievably grateful that I can do this, but I had to do a bit of self-counselling to allow myself to just have guitars for its own sake instead of for practical reasons, ie, gigging and making money. Does all this resonate with anyone here?
