    I think the most guitars I have ever had at once was 12 or so.

    Clearly you need more guitars although you can cover a lot of bases with what you have. :)

    Okay, so my collection has changed quite a bit since the time of the OP, so here is where I am now. (Rounded off.)
    2 PRS, 1 home made Stratocaster, 1 G&L Legacy, 1 Carvin bass and 2 Heritage guitars (1 semi-hollow and 1 solid body).
    30% PRS
    30% Heritage
    13% Partscaster
    13% G&L
    13% Carvin

    This list needs more 100%'ers.

    Maybe some of us need something else to remind ourselves how good we have it.

    That is a tough thing to do at this time. For example, two of my USA made guitars have body, neck and headstock binding that was placed there by old school craftsmen parcticing their trade. The binding doesn't add anything to the tone of the instrument, it's just a good looking bit of old fashioned craftmanship. PRS doesn't do "old school" binding like that (nothing wrong with that) and I have personally met the people who made these guitars of mine which I am describing. So, I'm sure that I will continue to buy more PRS guitars over time but I will probably never reach the 100% PRS status because I like having some of these old school instruments in my collection.

    Another example is bass guitars. PRS doesn't really do bass guitars for every day Joe's like me. Currently, Carvin is my brand for bass guitars but I would be happy to consider switching over to a PRS bass if they can compete with a USA made, great sounding, versitle, playable, beautiful looking neck-through designed bass for around a thousand dollars the way Carvin does.

    I have one Strat that I only keep around for when I want a Strat sound from an actual Strat (G&L in my case) and my Partscaster is for sale or trade for a PRS.

    It's probably a good thing that PRS doesn't make every possible kind of guitar imaginable. It is better to specialize in what one does best and be happy with that instead of trying to be all things to all people. Do I think PRS should start installing old school binding on their Custom 24's. No. Absolutely not.

    Nothing wrong with owning a couple other brands just to have a little variety. If nothing else, doing so might serve to instill a better appreciation for the PRS guitars one might already own by revisiting other brands from time to time.

    I played a PRS acoustic at Markie's this past weekend. I rarely touch acoustic, but I know magic when I see it. This guitar was astonishing in every way. I need one.

    Yes, you need a good acoustic. Everybody does.
    My PRS acoustic is very good, but I also have some others that are pretty special and have to stay with me.

    Understood.

    Yeah, I want one. Need to play a Martin Simpson Signature before I commit. I think the larger nut width would be good for me.

    It was truly magical hearing "acoustic metal" out of that acoustic.

    I think that would be a good one to borrow from you. Come to my place and you can sample some wood combinations in case you have to build.
