I've decided I want to cut back on the guitars and focus more on the playing.
I want to limit my collection to:
1x modern output humbucker guitar (Gibson Les Paul Custom) Done
1x paf guitar (Gibson ES335) Work in progress, just a husk at the moment.
1x p90 guitar (Gibson SG with p94) Probably needs to go
1x true single coil guitar (1976 Greco Stratocaster) Needs a refret first to decide if it's a keeper or not
Between brackets is what I have right now
Everything else has to go, and from then on, one in is one out.
I'm not quite there yet as each guitar has some stuff I'm not really happy with still, but I've never been closer to "being there". It took me like 10 years to know what I want and need from a guitar, and what I don't.
I felt I was pretty well covered and didn't need anymore. Then the singer in my band (he plays rhythm) wanted a specific model Les Paul, so I've been trying to help him hunt one down. In the process of doing that, I came across a Les Paul that was just crying out to me. I had to buy it. It's all my singer's fault! LOL
I have a wide variety of guitars that all play and sound different - different woods, pickups, scale lengths, electronics, etc. It's possible that I might tone chase in the future to try and find something specific, but at the moment I am very happy with my current collection and don't have any reason to acquire anything more.
