    I just hit 52, I think (53?). I would send pics, but I have guitars wedged in every corner of my side of the house and the garage is a box receptacle.I bought some racks, which are still spread out, but I keep my Top 6 in a rack at arm's reach and my #1 (named Niandra) in a single stand at my side at all times. Like Billy the Kid's Colt or Harry's Magnum.

    I admire your restraint. You are a better man than I. Quick question... your Deluxe Reverb; have you had to do any work on it to get it sounding right? What I mean is, every nice tube amp I have purchased online (I have zero trustworthy guitar shops in my area and only one guitar shop period -- see what I did, there?) has been shipped and I think in need of some maintenance out of the gate. Is it just me? It has never sounded right, but that could be the loud hum and static which happens intermittently at an increasing frequency. I had a amp repair tech about an hour and a half away pick up my Custom Shop Blues Junior and as I suspected, it had a bad fuse, bad power tubes and needed re-capping, I think. Is that a thing? Well, it cost me another $250, and with the pick up (I still don't have it back) I could have simply purchased another standard Blues Junior. Anyway, sorry for the long message. I just do not know sh*t about amp construction, maintenance or repair and if I did, I would be too intimidated by all the boards, transistors and tubes to even try to work on one myself.

    I feel bad that you wrote such an in-depth post @Artwerk Orange, and I cannot help you. I had no intention of misleading anyone. But if you look closer at the photo, you’ll see that my Tele blocks most of the Tone Master medallion at the lower right of the amp. Digital amp, not tube. Sorry.

    I own over 80, plus more yet to be restored.
    I started collecting Fender Mustangs, then got the bug for USA Fender Bullets back in 2004, I own 42 six string Bullets & 4 Bullet bass guitars.
    These are old pics, the bullet collection has more than doubled & I have a few early 80's strats & other 80's oddities.

    Yes it's much easier if ye start early when you have "only" a few and the details are still fresh. It's also important to maintain the data so they're up to date. Wait too long and details gets hazy and if ye have too many records that need updating you'll be more likely to push it off to later.

    That's why I added a note page where I just dump the data into so that when it's time to put them into the fields they're supposed to be in, it's already in there...even if its just a rambling mess of notes jumbled into 1 multi-line text field.

    I'd be happy to just start with some 2-inch blue painter's tape on the cases/bags noting make, model and year. For awhile, I could keep them straight, but as i start bagging and casing them up, I've started losing track of what guitar is in what bag. Cases are a little easier to identify.

    I've had times where I've had a ton of guitars, and times where I haven't had many, and I've come to realize that for me, I don't need a lot. If I'm not actively making use of it for more than 6 months, I either trade it or sell it and get something else.

    Anyways, I've got my collection fine-tuned to 4 and it covers pretty much anything I'd ever want to do. I'm pretty happy where I'm at.

    First is this Crate Electra. It's technically my wife's and it had been sitting in a gig bag for pretty much the entire time we've been married. One of those starter kit guitars that also comes with a cheap little amp. I took it out a year ago and it's turned out to be an excellent player. The neck and fretboard feel fantastic and it's been my little tinkerer platform ever since. Currently it's got a Squier Affinity Strat pickguard and it honestly sounds way, wayyy better than it has any right to. This is my sleeper. I don't care much for how the headstock looks, but this guitar just plays and sounds so great that it's pretty easy to get past.


    Next is my Sterling Ray34, which is bar none the best bass guitar I've ever played. I went through a huge bass phase a while back and this ended up being the winner of everything. I gigged with it a bunch too...aside from some stupid tuner issues (Sterling was very helpful despite my not being the original owner of the bass), it has been incredible. The tone is fantastic, it's way more versatile than you'd expect, and it sounds amazing in every song I do. I might get an Affinity P-bass sometime down the line just to have that unique P-bass Clank for recording, but for now I don't see the need.


    This PRS SE Custom 22 is my most recent trade acquisition. And I've been really pleasantly surprised at how fantastic it's been. It sounds excellent under high gain, and coil splits very nicely. I love the feel of the neck and that finish is just *Homer Simpson drools*


    Finally is my most favorite guitar I've ever owned -- my Fender Nashville Deluxe Tele. It has a 5-position pickup selector and the stock wiring is cool because you get the quacky position 2 and 4 of a Strat...buuuuut you lose out on the middle position of a Tele and I cared about that more. Plus Strat position 2 and 4 sound basically the same to my ears. So I messed with the selector wiring a little bit and now position 5 is the neck, 4 is neck+bridge, 3 is bridge, 2 is middle+bridge, and 1 is middle. Still get all the tones, just in a different order plus now I get the full Tele experience. I love the noiseless pups and this guitar punches WAY above its price range.


    This setup covers basically anything I'd ever want to do. I mostly just do home recording now anyways.

    For amps, I actually just use Amplitube 5. I got the full package and it's been incredible. I have a Vox VTX-100 in the garage that I'm holding on to in case I ever play guitar in a band. For bass, I have a Boss GT-1B pedal that I run directly into the PA. That setup worked really well in my last band and I've found that it's a much better sound overall when you're playing bass live.

    Nice collection!

    Kinda same here. My goal is to have 7 (4 strats, 1 tele, 1 acoustic and 1 bass) and LP eventually. So need to add 1 strat, 1 tele and a bass to complete my wet dreamz.

    The white se is my latest. Took a guard and electronics off of an affinity, added gotoh locking tuners and highwood? Saddles. Will take it in for a set up this week hopefully. 06C597DE-4244-42E2-AA11-B72628AC8E80.jpeg DB69B839-4578-4920-8440-A5A2FDF4A8E5.jpeg
