After a few years of build-up (several mods, builds, purchases), I came to the "sudden" realization that I had WAY too many guitars (21)! Some really nice guitars were sitting unused, and on top of that I have found that one of my guitars truly has become my "#1", so much so that I rarely play ANY other guitars anymore. So, I took a good look at my collection and started targeting candidates for "downsizing" -- I will never part w/ any of my 8 Custom Builds, or any of the guitars I have significantly modded, so I figured anything totally "stock" is expendable. Got 3 nice guitars out to new folks in the past couple of weeks- a Squier Master Series Thinline, an MIM Deluxe Strat, and an Epi SG400 Pro. Down to 18 now (16 electrics, only 2 of which are still "stock"), and I'm not GASing for anything now, either. Feels good to slim down sometimes!
