Re: Have several different guitars?
I had one acoustic guitar from when I was 9 until I got my first electric when I was 11. I didn't get my next electric and amp until I was 16, and MAN what a huge sound difference. After that, it was buy/sell/trade like crazy for all the different sounds I could muster and develop my tonal ear.
Now I keep the stocks full for backups live, and different ones for studio tones, be it big or small differences. Same for amps. It also doesn't hurt to have extra ones for trading power if I see something I want; "Hey, I'll trade you this for that!"
If you have no intentions of selling your guitars (as I did with my first electric); repaint or decorate it! It might make it fun to play again! Nothings more fun that hotrodding or giving it a facelift!
