Good thought. We all need a safety margin.
Does buying guitars to fix up or part out count LOL well I just added another pawn shop find to the collection
a vintage Hondo II ES-335 copy. And got it for a steal beautiful color excellent condition for its age.
I've got 5, 1 is all I need.
G&L Legacy Special - 1st guitar, can't part with it just on principal
Martin - 1960s classical nylon string. Received as a gift, sentimental value
Eastman - dreadnought. Bluegrass
Rick Kelly Tele - amazing instrument. Clone of Bill Frisell's Kelly Tele
MJT Partscaster Tele - my #1. Intonation is awesome. Twangs for days. I do sometimes miss the middle position of my G&L, but not much. To me, the late 50s/early 60s Teles stand alone
Fun question! Cool to see everyone's responses
One more than you have right now
On the island of Malta, they say there are 365 churches, one for every day of the year.
So if you find guitar playing takes you to a higher level ...... Hmmmm
It would be nice to have a partscaster strat...that would be just 1 more
I f I had to, I'd cut back to 4 guitars - a solid body, a semi-hollow body, an acoustic, and a bass. That would cover anything I'd be expected to play.
Now, which one of each would be the bigger question. Obviously my Tele, and my old P Bass. I'd choose my orphan Gretsch over the Starcaster I guess. But I might sell both and go looking for the ideal semi-hollow. The other dilemma would be which acoustic.
I suppose one acoustic and one electric.
But the ones that do 98% for me are
Custom OM acoustic
My absolute minimum would be 1: an acoustic.
My ideal would be:
335-style with humbuckers
Something P90 flavored
One, always have one...
I'm not big on acoustics so my list would be
Tele (MIM Standard, check)
Strat (MIM Standard, check)
Les P (wishlist)
Semi-hollow (Epi Dot, Check)
Bass (No name P-copy, check)
Bonus points for P90 guitar of any type. (wishlist)
3 is the perfect number of guitars.
1 Backup for Tele. Could be another type of electric.
4....strat, tele, jazzmaster, classical.
Absolute bare bones minimum for me would be 6. 2 Strats, 2 Teles, an acoustic, and a classical.
I have 7, will likely have 9 by spring.
I could easily get by with my tele and really good Gibson or Martin acoustic.
I could live with just a really good acoustic. Relatively comfortably.
I’ll go with two for myself.
My Gibson Songwriter for an acoustic
My Mockingbird for an electric. It’s pretty sick when it comes to sound versatility.
One of each
For no particular reason I think six would be ideal.
Right now I have seven.
