Now, must it be this chaotic?


No, it doesn't have to be. But it is. Partly because I want the guitars I'm selling to be out & available so I can a/b different guitars easier as part of the process of determining for sure which ones get sold. Partly because I want to have them easily available if there are any questions about things I didn't notice or forgot to cover once they are listed on eBay. And partly so that I can box them up easier.


But it is pretty crazy.


Once this is all done, they will all fit on the rack/stands in the 2nd-to-last picture, and on the shelves in cases in the last picture.

Damn, man. To think, I'm trying to get my herd down to a level where they will all fit on a 6 guitar rack and one hanging stand. :P

Well, I cover a little more ground than you do. But still, I can't imagine how anyone can do that. There are just too many cool guitars out there.

Looks fine to me. ;):lol:

I agree, doesn't look like a problem there to me. That just looks like a Saturday afternoon around here.....

You need more amps.

I keep trying to spot the ones you got from me :)

I'm slowly decluttering now. Like you, I tried a bunch but I keep gravitating to a few that really speak to me.

  • The MotorAve is unique. As in, Mark only made one like this and how many times do you get to have a one-off from a "known" builder?
  • The Strat because everyone needs a Strat
  • "Goldie" the Studio Custom that looks like it went through World War III because I have fond memories of gigging that one with Mrs. Polara before Baby Polara came along
  • And the Shiskov of course!

The Chap is over on the single stand at the right side of the window, between the 2 3-guitar stands and the TV table. That's a 100% keeper. Love the neck, need the Sustainer, need to complete my Big 4 of Hamer shredders. Or, 5 w/ the Virtuoso.

The Squier Standard is standing on the floor leaning against the brown couch, but is turned string-side toward the couch. The Squier Standard is over in the 7-guitar stand. Probable keeper. Not sure. It probably needs new pickups/pickguard to keep, and I'm trying to decide if "needs no additional work" is a good cut-off point for keepers.

Although to be completely honest, I might well have 6-7 guitars tied for #1.

Lets' just say I just hope I never have to choose between the Virtuoso and the Mercury Head.

Just out of curiosity, are you looking for a variety of aesthetics? Because it seems there are only a handful of general guitar tones that can be had from several guitars, and after that it's all about looks (well, actually, there are different ways a guitar feels as well, but personal preference on what we look for in a neck is usually pretty narrow -- I think).

In any case, if you've got room for it and the wife is okay with it, why not, right?

Not to be sexist or anything, but isn't it interesting we don't hear from women on the board explaining to us about how they have to sneak guitars into the house without the husband noticing?
