    I didn't think it was possible to have too many guitars.

    Strange, my wife said I should only need one ... I said so why do you have 38 pairs of shoes??? You should only need one pair?

    Been there and done that too..but got a new wife( 20 yrs married now.)
    It was better to marry an oncologist that makes 1.5 x your wage .. (and certainly not the reason I married her)
    At that point they don't care what you spend your money on as long as you pull your weight in the relationship
    ... seems to work fine..

    Your right about chics and shoes...I thought I was married to Imelda Marcos...3 built in robes weren't enough, Her Royal Highness had to take the spare room downstairs as well. Some still in the boxes...never worn...or worn once for a wedding and put back in the box.

    It was like she was a beta tester for Jimmy Choo or something

    Theres' at least one extra guitar I missed out on with all the money spent on friggin' shoes FGS...

    I was more family then she was , basically the second son, I'm still in touch with her folks.

    I have 7 guitars, and 7 basses. My wife is OK with that. Infact, I have a spare bedroom for my own musical needs. If you respect one and other these things are OK. It doesn't mean that I can buy what I want for my little homerecording thing, but she understand my "needs". But it is also the other way round - towards her! Further on, I don't spend a lot of money on myself. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. You have to find a balance in consuming time and money on the things you love to do, and the things you really have to do.

    That said, I'm blessed with my wife.........

    Robin.

    I'm just as bad on keyboards and they're not my "primary instrument" 9 at last count and another on the way !!

    When my studio was smaller I smuggled in a Korg T1 88 key beast , my wife had no idea it was in there for at least 10 months HA!

    as for guitar I plead guilty , 2 new ones last year , a taylor 214ce deluxe and a cheezy epiphone "guns and roses" Les Paul .. Which I take to parties or backyard jams ...

    At what point do you admit it and say to yourself...

    "OK, this is getting out of hand.....I think I have a problem......"









    " I need a full-time guitar tech.....":D
