    Was trying to update my profile here, and it limits the number of characters you can use. Even using shorthand, I can only list 12 of my guitars. Surely I'm not the only nut around here with more than 12 guitars. Why does the site limit the characters in the guitars portion of your profile so drastically??

    Yep, ran into that myself. Not sure of the reason for that limit but I'm guessing there is a good one.

    Was going to just put "A bunch of nice, cheap guitars". Or figured this was a non-too-subtle indication that I should stop adding to my collection?

    Will obviously take more than that to stop this out of control train...

    First thing that came to mind. I'd like to have 12+ guitars to list, but I don't think I have any listed in my profile. Who checks people's profile to see what gear they have?

    Well, some of us are old and started collecting before most of you were born :) Also, several of mine are cheap guitars, like my SX Liquid, SX Hawk, SX Ursa, Cozart 12 string, Alvarez 12 string, Ibanez AM73. I paid less than $150 each for those, some of them less than $100. They each have their own character that I love, which is why they make the collection. I don't value my guitars by their cost, but by their sound and utility. And I have a habit of getting really good deals.

    Only one of my guitars is worth more than $1000, most fall in the $300-$600 range. Add those others together and you have enough money for ONE Fender Custom Shop guitar. So it isn't nearly as extreme as it might sound.

    Ha. Classic! The addition of the word "drastic" takes the First World problem to the next level. :rolleyes:

    I had 19 once.
    Down to 4 now.
    I really only "miss" a couple of the other 15.
    Only need 2.
    Really only covet one more.
    Sorry you have a problem.
    Maybe list the ones you play?

    Why? You're only going to play the AVRI any way.

    It's good to have lots of guitars - much safer than having a lot of women milling around.

    More than twelve guitars and writing about them is considered bragging around here... maybe. :lol:

    and you can't play all at once anyway. :lol:

    I'm in a big selloff streak. Even at that, I'm still above 12. I don't bother listing them all. Occationally, I change my avatar picture to a guitar I own.

    On another forum of big $$ guitars, I list the 3 from that manufacturer and then say "buncha other guitars".

    It's a Friggin GUITAR forum...You should be able to list your guitars if you want to. I have 27 instruments including mando's, uke's, basses, and a lap steel and play them all pretty darn well. If all you need is two Tele's God bless you but I drive inexpensive cars, don't have a gun collection, and don't have a Harley so I can afford lots of very nice guitars and amps cause that's what I"M into...Now I'm going to go back to my PRS through my two 65 Amps and play the heck out of them. Enjoy!!

    I'm not particularly interested in reading lists of other people's guitars. And I see no real reason why anyone would be interested in reading a list of mine.


    Called me ornery
