Currently I own 4. Two Ibanez electric, one takamine classical accoustic/electric and an antique Goya classical guitar. Interestingly enough, the Goya is the same or a similar guitar that was used in the movie The Sound of Music. It is the same manufactuer (goya) made at roughly the same time (early to mid 1950's) but I'm unsure if it is the exact same model or not.

Most wooden instruments sound better with age, if they don't fall apart. The more they are the played, the better they sound. I understand totally how people get attached to their guitars, replace them with a new one and a lot of character is lost.

Yes i am in the mood to collect guitars instead of replacing them.. right now my friend has my first guitar he wanted something to experiment with so i lent it to him. I want to keep track of it but so i don't know if i'll let him get rid of it but a new guitar is like a whole new character for your sound.

five and a half. hehe. the best. a Heritage Cherry Gibson SG Standard. undoubtably the finest guitar there is. the first. an Encore KC3. a basic beginners strat copy. an italian archtop acoustic I had fitted with a humbucker. nice guitar. it was a wreck when I got it. a Spanish style acoustic. a very very strange thing. has no bridge, missing pegs, but I plan to do it up. it has a tiny, odd shaped body, and the pickup switches are like 2 lightswitches. I plan to have fun with it at some point. and a neck. no Idea what from.

wow you've got a lot of different guitars there how long have you been playing? Over the years i hope to add, trade and find guitars over the years.. i bet there's a story for every one of them. I haven't met many female guitar players on top of that you have 5.. and a half .. keep doing what your doing !

since Christmas '99. I'm not that good, but I enjoy it. most of my guitars have sort of found their way to me. really. apart from the SG which I bought, and the Encore which was a Christmas present. the others were all ones people had knocking about unused. the archtop my uncle had for years, never managed to play, so painted it with matt black emulsion and hung it on the wall. I had it made playable. the acoustic my mum saw in a charity shop and it was cheap. it has quite a nice sound, but an tricky high action. the lightswitch and the neck were in my grandads attic when he moved where they are now. hehe. I can't really see why there aren't more female guitarists. people complain about the lack of female guitar playing role models, but I don't see why a female should need a female role model. I look up to Jonny Greenwood, Graham Coxon, John Frusciante.... they're not playing the guitar with any body part I don't have, so they can still be my role models I think. ;)

I've got two. A Vintage Metal Axxe and an acoustic one. My amp is a Laney Linebacker 30 watt. Would buy a new amp if I had money though.

I'm in the same boat.. i have a cool guitar but waiting for the amp upgrade... i play on a Roland Micro Cube. It does the job its really portable and runs on batteries so its great to bring places.. but I need a real sound you know.. As i practice my ears get snobbier about the tone and everything.. maybe mylot will by me a new amp! -in 5 years!

i don't personally own a guitar.. but i think one was bought for me. we have a lot of guitars at home. i actually lost count. maybe we have 4 acoustic guitars, one acoustic small (bought for me), and another one, an electric guitar that was bought for my brother. so, that's like 6 guitars. my mom is the only one i know who knows how to play, then eventually, my dad, and then my brother and i, and recently, my youngest brother, the one who owns the electric guitar, is really hooked into it and is really getting good at it.
