    I'm in the market for a P90 guitar myself. I was going to get a PRS but can't seem to find one with the "pattern thin" neck. So it will most likely be a gold top LP.

    My quantity of guitars is divisible by 5, +3. I hope that counts.

    Someday I hope to have something like your reduced herd... but it seems unlikely. I think 4-5 would be attainable, and probably perfect for me.

    I'm going the wrong (or is it the right) way. I just ordered my first PRS. A CE 24.

    I could never justify a huge amount of guitars to myself.
    I’ve got 2 electrics and a bass. I could see having a couple more but I’d probably off one of the 2 I‘ve got now.

    I agree. @axe4me posting about some and certain Epiphone's being the "real deal". It has mostly been about spec and the appointments. Every company has their dogs. Knowing what to look for, and weeding out the good ones from bad, only comes with experience.
    For most players, the stock guitar is fine as is from the factory. The sole reason I had the conversion done, was for intonation. YMMV
    I was surprised at the outcome when I got it back. In my humble opinion; this particular Epiphone Custom as good as any modern day Gibson. So yes, real deal.

    I'll never have as many guitars as Lou (axe4me), nor will most of mine be as high-end, but given that I already have enough for them to be spread all over Casa Krashpad, I'm about at stasis. And that's fine.

    Haven't bought a guitar since late 2017. I need to concentrate on getting the bands back up and running (especially my main one, which has been on hiatus for most of the last couple years, after both members of the rhythm section got married/moved away), but given that I'm immunocompromised, that won't happen for a good while either. Once things ease up a little, I do have a couple amps that will need some minor work. But not while the pandemic is still so hot. Meanwhile, though, options are nice.

    "Old Glory" is wonderful guitar in the Junior family.

    If you want the vibe of a Junior, look no further.
