Quite fankly, Frank (<--) you have one of the largest collections of Historic Les Pauls in the world (next to Mike Slubowski) and you even own a Burst.
I'm shocked by your stance.
(remember someone is saying that you are one or the other...not both in this discussion)
So, are you saying that you are not a player as well as a collector?
(I remember a pic of you from the 70's playing a 3 pickup SG Custom)
Just askin' as to shed some light on my deranged mind..........
I was just messin' around with you a bit. I can't believe how seriously you guys are taking this discussion!
I actually don't play all that much anymore. Definitely more of a collector (and builder) these days, than I am a player. I just don't have the time to play anymore, but wish I did. And yes, the pics you saw from the '70s was when I was playing seriously.
I can definitely see both points of view on this topic. To use another analogy, I have hundreds of tools, but in no way could it be said that I collect them. Even though there are some that are similar to one another, they each have their own purpose. I guess the same could be said of people with a few guitars...if each is viewed as "tools of the trade", with each one bringing unique qualities to the table.
On the other hand, I suppose you could say that I have a collection of tools...even though I'm not a tool collector. From that standpoint, I'd say that someone could have a collection of guitars (defined as more than one), without that person being a collector.
In other words...I don't know what the hell I'm saying! Aren't you glad you asked?
