    Do I have to play them well?
    If you saw my guitars, they're nothing "collection" worthy, so you might think I just play.
    If you heard me play, you'd think I'm just a collector.

    Somebody pass me a Babel Fish and some peanuts.
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    Sorry, all I've got is gold fish and pistachios - but you're welcome to them.

    But what if you let others play them? Does the Harem then become a Brothel? Do you become a pimp?

    I have 6 USA Made PRS Guitars (and a 7th ordering in a month or so). I always have 3 "Main" Guitars that I play constantly... they often change. BUT... the best part of having multiple guitars is playing one that you haven't played in a few weeks (or even dare I say a month!!!) and being inspired all over again! I'd love to have 30 USA Made PRS Guitars, however, I wouldn't want to buy them all at once!! But I can tell you if I do end up with 30... I would have that inspirational spark every couple of weeks!

    I don't think I could have 30 guitars if they weren't all (or 90%) USA Made PRS. I understand what the Student Edition Guitars are and I respect what they afford guitarists that are learning or who are on a budget, however, my hands and ears and tell the difference... So let me put it this way...

    I'd Rather have 7 USA Made PRS Guitars than 4,000 guitars of any other brand!!
    Custom 22 Brazilian Limited (Emerald Green/Artist Package Quilt)| Custom 24 (Red Fire Burst/Quilted 10 Top)| Custom 24 (Autumn Sky) | P22 (Solana Burst)| Standard 22 (TriColor Burst)| McCarty Soapbar (Seafoam Green)| CE 22 (Vintage Yellow/3 piece 10 Top)| CE 22 (Whale Blue)| Mesa Dual Rectifier Half Stack| Fender Blues DeVille 410 (USA Made)| Fender Evil Twin (Snakeskin)| Peavey Classic 50 410| Gibson Northern Jumbo Limited

    Yeah but sometimes those suits have hard rubber nipples. That could cause something similar to buckle rash.

    That's right... rubber gorilla nipple rash.

    I think we should ask an expert.

    I think you nailed it. When you have guitars that are not played and are still special to you, you have a collection.

    I guess I'd say at whatever point you're buying something just to have it and not to serve a purpose in your tone palette. There's nothing wrong with that. I'd love to be able to do it. I'd have to have them all hanging out like a guitar store - or Markie's
