A mix of thirty acoustic & electric guitars, and three mandolins.
And many thanks to some of the folks on LTG who make me feel like I’ve exercised the utmost restraint!

There are the guitars I count, and those I don't. I have a core four, my 70 Guild D 35, a 65 Texan, a 2007 Martin D 35 Custom, and my Santa Cruz D PW. I have a department store 50s arch top I fixed up, a 50s Stella, A Goldtone square neck dobro, four or five parts casters, two parts caster basses, two ukuleles, and a Weber mandolin, plus a home crafted mandolin. Oh, add two Pono parlors I need to sell.

I just sold off my 12 string, because I never play it, and I can use the money to pay for part of a day in the studio. So I'm currently at four, two of which are Guilds. But I'm working on getting back up to five. I'll be working with a luthier, a long time family friend, and a Guild lover, to build a 000 for me. Nothing crazy, a really basic 000, that I plan to gig with. He's also a big fan of short-scale F30s and LG2s, so this should work out nicely.

35 Guild acoustics if you count the Peregrine, 34 if you do not. I count it just because I consider it an acoustic stage guitar. It uses acoustic strings and has a piezo system instead of traditional pickups.

Very cool indeed. I noticed the G's color on the headstock and could not figure out which model.
Thanks for sharing.
Here is a better look at the headstock with the turquoise G-shield. Such a beautiful guitar.

One flattop: A '76 Guild D-35.

Two resos: An OMI Dobro F60 and a Don Gann cherry and spruce squareneck.

One mando: A '20s Gibson Junior A.

Five electrics: Two Strat partscasters, two Tele partscasters, and an old Harmony single-cut.

A bunch of blues harps: Mostly Hohners.

Three instruments I can't play: a Yamaha P37 pianica, a non-name banjo, and a Yamaha P70 electric piano.

I'm also vying for a Guild D-50 flattop, but it doesn't look good.

Now you know.

Currently 8 all acoustic. I addition to the 4 Guilds on my signature the others are:
1996 Martin D42; 1993 Gibson Nick Lucas (rosewood); 2023 Taylor 362E concert 12 string; Tacoma JK50 (Koa)
Not sure of the year for the Tacoma. My son has it and it was purchased new when my life was a bit of a blur about 20-25 years ago.

Oh gosh, too many. In addition to the Guilds listed below, there's one Guild that hasn't made the signature yet, plus three Martins and four Collings, plus a Samick Greg Bennett Design OM-5 and a Parkwood PW320M, both bought in the '00s, when I was looking for a guitar to play safely around my toddler daughter and a guitar I could leave in my office at work.

The number is absurd. But I love them all. Even the Samick.

I have some in the house and the rest in an out building with my amps. Seems like a lot but ends up being decades of accumulation. My son seems to always have a couple "on loan". I play every day and slowly rotate through them all.
Guild S4CE
Godin Kingpin
Seagull 0 size Spruce Top
Larrivee OM2E 2000
Harmony Juno
Les Paul Special w/ Zebras
Tele Ash FSR w/ A2 PUs
Tele 60's Baja
Erlewine Chiquita recent

all have pickups or transducers and can be plugged in

Sounds like guitar players are the only musicians that have tens of multiples of their instrument. Like, how many drummers have 15 drum kits? Singers maybe have multiple mics, but 10? do violinists, tuba players have 10 different ones? I suspect not, but genuinely I have no idea.

I know I have excuses I tell myself to justify owning more than one, all rational of course! My total count is 12, five of them being acoustic, and there is even one bass in that :).
