What makes you buy multiple les pauls that are similar

I mean like more than one Trad Plus or Pro, Standard, Custom, Studio.

I was thinking of buying a new Standard, or another Trad Plus but I have a Trad Plus and was kinda thinking why would I buy another guitar of the same ilk other than a different color maybe. I know the Standard is different than the Traditional and has some new things to it.

I've got two Les Paul's right now. Some days I think of adding another one but lately I've been looking at completely different guitars. I like variety and I think my Les Paul sounds are pretty well covered.

Both of my Les Pauls have different pickups in them, as well as different fretboard materials. They each have their own voice.

yeah I was thinking the same thing. I have 3 les pauls. I mean I own a Studio, Trad Plus and a Custom but I don't have a Standard. And I don't know if the Standard is worth the purchase since I already have the Trad Plus. And I am not a fan of the PCB board.

Yup

Concur with River

Always carry a spare.

Besides, guitars are like snowflakes...no two guitars are exactly the same.

I suspect some of the same reasons people have more than one kid, even though they all kinda look alike.

I don't know... I hate to have guitars just sitting around. Before I bought my Gibson, I had one dual humbucker solidbody, one single coil axe, one P90 guitar, and one hollowbody. They all had their voice, and they were all extremely different from one another.

Now that I've bought my Trad Pro, I have one guitar that can honestly replace every one of them. The only other guitar I'd like to eventually pick up is another P90 Gibson.

There's something inherently sexy about them.
If I had the money, I'd have a thousand of 'em.

I only plan to keep my one Les Paul as my arsenal's no.1 axe, but I'd also go for collectible LPs. Sometimes it's good to play music of an famous player on his signature model

As River says above (post #2). I bought a second Standard as a back-up on live dates, should the main one go on the fritz at an inopportune moment.
