    "They're not all guitars, honey.
    There's a bass in there."

    Me! and a ukelele as well. And as for my guitars, well, they're all different. Semi hollow, hollow, solid, P90's, Humbuckers, single coil, Bigsby, no Bigsby, acoustic, electric, 6 string, 12 string...well, you get the idea, they're all different.

    Why do you have more than one, anything?

    I have more guns and knives than I do guitars and I use them less. I must have a dozen hammers. 30 files, a couple dozen pliers, dozens of wrenches and so forth. I started out with one of each.

    For the same reason I have three dogs and a cat; someone had to give them a home.

    Maybe it's an excuse to myself but I feel inspired when i get a new guitar and I feel like I play more

    The more I have, the better. Always room for one more. But unfortunately for me, I got way too much going on right now. Definitely would like a Tele and I got plans for a Super Champ x2.

    there was a time when I had 4 acoustics, 3 electrics, 2 mandolins, 2 banjos, a fiddle,and a square neck dobro resonator, they all had unique purposes.
    I think the best analogy is a golf bag, by USGA rules you are permitted 14 clubs each one has pretty specific uses and you can't swing more than 1 at a time :thumb:

    I know you're a nice guy, X, but which guitar would you have if you were a jackass? ;)

    I justify it by never buying two guitars with the same type of pickup. I do genuinely wonder this about the guys with 6 les Paul standards

    I guess I have my 57+ guitars,acoustics and basses because I want to have my own private guitar shop in
    my studio.

    I really like the idea of having A LOT of guitar options when it come to recording.

    Same goes for my 12 Tube amps.

    I have way more than enough guitar and amp options to mix and match as needed.

    It's really fun to have a lot of options.

    Exactly my feeling. I'm trying to move into my forever home first though. Got to have a place to put your guitars. :)

    If you're loaded and have no obligations, why not?

    This is next on my list, but I'll be damned if the Banjo isn't generally a very tacky looking instrument (but very fun to play).
