My collections gone through a bit of a rough shake up the last year and a half. Had to sell 3 of my favorites due to an unexpected job loss, and I havent been in a position yet to replace them (and its only looking worse). How it sits now (not pictured is an Ibanez acoustic bass):

2012 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Faded


Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas

Ibanez AM73B


Indy Custom Strat (to the left you can see my 98 Fender American Standard Strat that I had to left go to fund a rent payment. I miss that thing :( )

2000 Samick Korea plant built Epiphone Les Paul, my first Les Paul
1960's Framus Hollywood I had restored and rebuilt and customised from firewood, my first LP shaped guitar;
When I bought it, I didn't know what it was, and it looked like this;

I paid £15.00 part payment and it cost £30.00 and I was young and my parents paid the other £15.00 on this one. I had it fixed up and identified when I was 20 and as a 21st birthday gift to myself, I had it customised/rebuilt it to how I always wanted it, only I never thought I'd do it before the age of 80, I did it for my 21st.

My Epiphone looked liked this when I bought it (on eBay)

Then I had that fixed up and rebuilt and customised.

Early 1950's Catania Carmello Parlour Acoustic
1970's Kay E100 (like my first guitar, this was an older sister of mine's guitar and this was a hand me down of her's when she moved out and left the country). I learned to play guitar on this red one.
Also, 2009, Bare Knuckle Pickups re-potted and rewound and rebuilt this Kay's pickup for me, so now I say this guitar has a Bare Knuckle pickup.

This approach is not for me. Enjoy ownership, really. I can't enjoy having guitars I do not use frequently to make music. I end up feeling like I'm running a guitar prison. Perhaps I feel this way because when I perform, people always respond to what I play and virtually never to the guitar I choose to use. I realize I sound like a snotty killjoy, but this is a forum and that's how I think. I own: '14 Versoul Henry; '87 '61 reissue Les Paul/SG; '57 LP goldtop (rebuilt player, not collectible); '96 Collings 0002HCE; '36 Montgomery Ward's (Gibson l-00 shape). I also have an Affinity Tele I keep at a different residence. Usually, when I buy a new guitar, I sell one I own. I can afford lots of guitar. I don't want lots of guitars.
