    All of them.

    I've always thought it was a matter of intent:

    If guitars are bought for the purpose of creating a collection, it's a collection. It probably doesn't matter if the guitars are played or not.

    My question is whether a collector and a person who invests in guitars is the same thing? I don't think so, but I don't do either, really, so what do I know?

    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 that Guitar investing has pretty much gone away Les. I know there are stories of "I made xxxx on this Guitar or that Guitar", but the novice Guitar investor has somewhat disappeared in the last 5-6 years. Nobody wants to tell the story of losing 3K on their Guitar investment. Many are more than willing to tell about making $500 though. I used to have a buttload of Vintage Guitars. I could keep them 3-4 years & then turn a 25-50% profit on them. Those days are long gone & the novice guys (Like myself) have or will take a bath on the sh*t they were/are sitting on. The good news is that we can tell our Wives that we made $500 on that Guitar we sold a while back. This way we can justify buying that next one............

    Just my personal opinion!

    You know...I get one good night's sleep and this happens.

    If you do things right, you're strap is slung low enough to prevent nipple impact. But yes, having pernambuco rub on your nipples will cause a rash. And if I'm not mistaken, I'm getting a rash just thinking about it.

    Wow, this was an industrial-strength thread derailment!

    I think the more important question is "Why do people collect things?"

    I dunno, but pretty much everyone collects something. Why do we have 2 cordless drills at my house? We only need 1. Why is there 50 forks, 60 spoons, & 35 knives in my silverware drawer? Why do I have 10 pairs of shoes (6 of them golf shoes), 60 T-shirts, 30 pairs of socks, 30 golf shirts, 3 suits (used only for funerals) in my closet? The wife prolly has 25 pairs of shoes. Why do I have 3 wallets when they last 15 years? Hell, I'll be dead before I need that last one! Why are there 4 kids bikes in my garage when my kids are in their mid 30s? Seems like it's human nature to collect crap...................

    For the first million or so years of human existence, it was all about foraging for food. So the urge to collect may be instinctual (human nature, as you say), simply because those who foraged successfully and put food and other essentials away probably had a better chance of surviving.

    At this point, we may not know why we're reluctant to clean out the sock drawer, but I think there's a tremendous pull toward saving our stuff!

    My kids are all grown, and I still have their toys stored away in the basement. Fortunately, I have two little grandkids, so they've got stuff to play with.

    I'm pretty sure these are all just trick questions so our wives can find out how many guitars we have and if they matter more to us than they do.

    Not gonna answer either!

    Well in that case, let me clearly state: I do not have a harem.

    If I may answer my own question....I think the answer is the first one to die with the most toys wins.

    I think if you are the last one to die, you have everyone's toys.
