Too many guitars? Should I sell some?

I've got about 17 Ibanez guitars and now I'm really thinking I ought to tidy up a bit. Should I sell some?

There's so many I can't really remember what I have, but I know I've 5 jems, numerous RG's, the good ones like the 550's, 570, 770, US Customs etc.

I do like having the collection, but I'm trying to be a bit realistic also.

As I only have the one 770, I'll be keeping that one for now.

Fluent english and "your mum" as your location. Im assuming you are british eh?

17 guitars isnt "too much" unless you dont want them. Do what you want dude, no one knows the answer but you!

Re: Too many guitars? Should I sell some?

If anything you should sell old and plain ones to buy new and cooler ones IMO. I second the collection shots request.

Ant1981,

Please change your location to your real world location. As it stands, it is not acceptable.

Thanks

Re: Too many guitars? Should I sell some?

I've gone through that many times, get a ton of guitars, sell a bunch off then slowly accumulate more. Thankfully I'm nowhere near 17 anymore.

Tell my "mum" I'll be by in a bit to collect the guitars you don't want.

Re: Too many guitars? Should I sell some?

If you're looking to pare down the collection, start by taking a look at your run-of-the-mill stuff. Why own a 550, 570 and 770? I understand the maple board attraction to the 550, but I'd probably get rid of the 570 personally.

The way I've looked at collecting is that if you're trying to keep the total number of guitars reasonable, then you have to avoid virtual duplicates.
