    The more you put into something, the more you get out. A third guitar may inspire me to play more and as a result, I'll get better! At least I tell that to myself.

    I plead the Fifth, for reasons that my testimony here today, may incriminate me.

    My wife was kind enough to let me splurge on my LPC as a gift for our 25th. I didn't need it, and never previously considered actually getting one, so it was a luxury item.
    It's a great guitar. I have no yearning for any more LP's or anything else really unless my current ones get stolen or damaged beyond repair.
    In my younger years I owned an LPC, Deluxe GT, and 55/74 so I know what they are capable of. Plus my priorities changed after I got married and had a family. I still gigged part-time but focused on the bills and the wife/kids. No regrets - I've been very happy with my choices and how my life has turned out.

    I have a few "goal guitars". It would be great to have:

    -Vintage junior. Single cut.

    -Norlin custom. Maybe a 78 (no pancake)

    -90's standard

    -standard double cut

    -A nice burst reissue. Can be plain top or flamed out. Any neck shape, so long as I love it & bond. (I remember in 2012 Guitar center was selling R0/G0 plaintops for $2936 new. They came in 2 unique finishes. "Orange fade" and basically a darker version of orange fade. Not to be confused with the 2018 HP "fade" aka unfinished burst.)

    To be honest, I'm not really a Les Paul person. I like strats and SGs I think.

    I am blessed to have reached my life dream Les Paul goal-one of each classic finish - Burst, Ebony,White,Goldtop,Wine Red. Have added a Gary Moore and a Quilt top. Always looking for a Deluxe beater to restore...

    Just one for me. I have my Studio and my American Special Tele and between the two, I feel pretty content. My problem is pedals...Feels like they're always changing and I can never get enough.

    I don't like copies but sometimes it cannot be avoided. Ideally I'd like a strat, tele, SG and LP and go from there. I may get a PRS LP which technically could be considered a copy but the scale length is completely different from my LP. I like each guitar to bring something completely different to the table. In the spirit of the thread though, I don't think it's possible to have too many guitars as long as you are secure financially. My 1¢.

    Still want to own a 70's Deluxe someday. Always loved the look and sound, just never had the right circumstances come up to own one.

    I didn't say I didn't have a les paul! But it's more about there being a quality luthier section.

    Thanks DarrellV. Time for a little avatar changeup, I suppose. Yea, the little f'r aint too happy is he?? Looking for a little bath but obviously got discouraged instead. :lol:

    I had one LP for a long time myself but then they started to accumulate. Funny what the years can do. :)

    I have four Les Pauls and play them all. They give variations on the sound I've cultivated
    that suit me perfectly.

    I also have a pair of Flying Vs that do likewise.

    I would like to be able to play as many songs (all the way through) as number of guitars I own.

    I'd get a brand new early '70s Deluxe (well, close enough to one) way cheaper than a clean original.
