It would be nice to know how big collection of guitars you have (drummers, pianists etc. are also welcome to respond). I'm a bass player but since I started with guitar I have three guitars: two electrics and of course an acoustic guitar. I also have a guitar amp. I also have two electric basses and two bass amps. I'm saving money for a custom bass project (electric) and would also like an acoustic bass. So, how about your gear?

Heyya IronMaiden! I don't have a collection of my own but my b/f is a musician and has a few things. He has two acoustics, an electric, a couple of peddles, an amp, microphones, and computer software in which he can be a one man band..lol...oh and my daughter has a little acoustic..bongos...tamborine..and this little rattle thing that I like to play with when we all jam on the weekends...LOL..It's a sight.

He's played in bands off and on...you know how that goes..lol..He freelances when he's not. I think it's in his blood to play no matter what.

Wow! I've always dreamt of having a Gibson but since they are so expensive and I play bass now, I haven't bought one yet. They sound amazing! That's a nice legacy, wish my parents had a Gibson

A guitar and a bass amp? Why don't you have a guitar amp? Playing guitar through bass amp or bass through guitar amp will damage the amp...

I do not have any real guitars or amplifiers. I do have two game guitars that we play with though. We use them for Guitar Hero for the Playstation game. I hope you don't think this is too funny LOL.

Not at all, Guitar Hero is a nice game In fact, I think it actually helps in learning to play guitar, especially your left hand (or right for lefties). Of course real guitar is bigger and different in many other ways but it really might just help a little, especially if you're very good at Guitar Hero, you learn to go fast and accurate with you left hand

I don't have an electric guitar. What I have is only an acoustic guitar. But I'm planning to put a pick-up on it... Maybe that's cool. I don't have amps yet.. but I'm planning to have one.

I have 2 electric guitars (my first one, which is just a starter guitar, and my main one), I have a bass guitar, an acoustic/electric one, and a old beat-up classical guitar. I have a couple small amps and a big 2x12 amp as well. :)

Have a classical guitar, an electric guitar, an acoustic guitar and 2 amps. Only the classical guitar is really any good. Im too poor to get myself anything better :P the one amp is pretty good but need alot of stuff replaced on it as I bought it second hand. Family owns 10 guitars in total all of which I play on too.

I have three main guitars.. Fender Strat USA 82.. Gibson 335 Reissue 2003 Yamaha APX-6 No Amps at the moment as I use a Line6 Pod.. and hire/borrow a big one if needed. I'd love to get myself a decent Tele and nice Precision and an Ibanez Gem but funds are low. Kind regards, Spencer

I have two electric guitars at my house, one twelve string acoustic guitar, and an acoustic six string that sits at my sister's place until I give up on her learning to play it. Also, I have an old Les Paul Jr. in peices that sits at my parent's house. So I guess that makes 5 guitar. 5!
