    My boyfriend plays his constantly. Whenever a friend would drop by with one he was in heaven. I finally bought one for him last Christmas. He's pretty good, just starting to play around with his own musical creations. My brother is a pro at guitar. Me, I suck. I just can't get the hang of it. But I LOVE to listen to those who can. Always a big turn on with the ladies;)

    girls love electric guitars...remember they are girls but by the time they are women, 25-ish and professional, then they don't like them or you if you hang out in that scene anymore ;)

    i have been playing for 30 years and i like all guitars...acoustic, 12 string acoustic, electric, bass, and nylon string...right now i have an ltd/esp viper 301 and a 32 year old yamaha fg-75 triple ought size steel string guitar

    my wife painted them up for a future art opening and we will paint more up like strats and stuff

    personally, i like the telecaster (squier and fender, new and vintage) for electric and any martins for acoustic guitars

    I love guitars. There used to be a time when my guitar was another limb for me, something like the Flying Spaghetti Monster's noodly appendage. But then I went to college, and got a job afterwards... *sigh* I should've been a musician. Anyway, I'm going to get an American Deluxe strat real soon. I love to play bluesy stuff.

    Playing guitar is a wonderful release and a good hobby to upkeep. I myself play the flute and find that just horsing around really relieves stress. Don't let that go. Since my boyfriend has "re-discovered" his love of his guitar playing he's been more "at-peace". I know it sounds corny, but I can't stress how these little things really make a difference.

    First I am jealous of your collection.
    Second, I dig acoustic guitars more than electric and I am over 25 :) And I like that "scene".

    I've got a Fender American SSH Strat, a Carvin Contour 66, and a Fender Acoustic of some sort (forget the model).

    I do love me some guitars. I'll play just about anything, but I've recently turned to playing classical stuff to improve my skills. Typical songs these days just aren't all that challenging.

    natural
    I've now accumulated three guitars, but I only play two. I have an old Fender Strat Squire (black & white) that I learned to play on, so could never part with even though the action is horrible. My acoustic is a thin-body Ovation. And finally, my pride and joy is my early production run Custom24 Paul Reed Smith in the Natural finish with bird inlays, which I don't see very often.
    Looks kind of like this one: http://www.synergyguitars.com/PRS-Guitars/IMG_3963.JPG

    It was quite an investment, too... its already worth significantly more than I paid. And what a dream to play... I'd like a new Martin acoustic, but I just dont play enough to warrant it at this point :(

    I've got a handful of Schecter guitars... their baritone guitars are heavy as ****... all the more metal!

    I haven't played though since I bought the new house... adulthood doesn't spare much time for rock 'n roll.

    he he

    i used to have a lot of guitars but i only have the two now and i plan to sell those

    i figured out along the way that i have only two arms and i am too lazy to plug into an amp these days so i would be happy with just one acoustic guitar for my needs these days ...and anything with six strings will do :)

    wintermute, that is a really cool bass

    i know bass players use the lowest string as a B, C, or D (or something lower than the low E), but do any bass players use the lowest four strings as E, A, D, G, and the highest string tuned somewhere higher?

    That's actually where I started with 5-strings, playing in a 3 piece it meant I could chord a lot more effectively, but when I ran a B-string through the amps I changed my mind and my playing style.

    Bass, the final frontier.
