My acoustics are all over the apartment. The guitar room has mostly electrics and amps.

You all have some impressive setups. Curious? How many years did it take to put together your collections? My modest collection was mostly put together over the last 5 years.

In other words "did you guys go into major debt all at once, or was it a slow decent over time." :-)

Exactly. I need to convince my wife that I don't have nearly enough guitars.

I have my first baby on the way this spring so the guest room has become his nursery and my wife and I earlier this week have converted my guitar room to a guitar room / guest bed room. I wasnít crazy about the idea but Iím excited about the reason we had to do it.

Just the fact you are nervous about it indicates you'll do great. It's hard, but rewarding.

Please be sure to give your Lady a break--she may need good care, rest and pampering just like your newborn!

Treasure every minute - even the trying ones. My eldest was born five minutes ago and his wife is about to give us our first grandchild any day now.

Some impressive rooms / collections here. Mine's a lot more modest. First, my permanent spot, where we LIVE, near Philly:

Here's the space, with the electrics living on the wall by the amp, where it's easy to keep them plugged in (or now, to keep the wireless transmitters well charged), and acoustics on a couple of doors across the way (one shown, the other out of the frame to the right). The electric setup is all current, except for the tele in pieces on the stool - that one was just visiting. The acoustics have changed completely - I took this before I knew about carbon fiber.

So here are my current Emeralds, which have replaced the wooden acoustics. Two of them live on the door hangers, the littlest older model X7 is probably gonna live with my older daughter and her partner once she decides where she'll start her full time doctoring career - she's finishing her residency over the next few months. So I'll have something to play when we do some extended visits wherever that's gonna be (Maine or Oregon are the likely landing spots). Nothing better than relatively inexpensive carbon fiber for that kind of duty.

We spend three months each winter on the Carolina Coast in a little rental condo, near our other daughter and her fiancť. Here's the much more abbreviated guitar area in that place. But frankly, I really dig this minimalist setup - no time wasted thinking about which guitar to play or why. Just grab the electric or acoustic and play. I could easily live with one acoustic and two electrics and may get down to that, or closer to it, someday...

Wow, that's amazing. I wish singapore wasn't so far away . You should post some of your electrics and amps on the Electric Guitar sub forum.
