    For the record I own 16 guitars....

    Some history of my experiences with other activities...
    I played Div1 tennis
    I play to a low single digit in Golf

    GENERALLY, the people cared the most about their equipment were the crappiest players....

        I would have punched him right in the beezer with my talentless hands
        Me too! He happens to be right about me, but such a statement is an insult to Rich Robinson.

          Haha, oh noes, my world is crushed!

          But wait, there's still hope... if I SELL all my guitars I'll be SUPER talented! By the inverse law of guitar acquisition in proportion to guitar talent! That guy's like a ****************ING EINSTEIN!

          When I hear tools spout crap like that, I always have to wonder why they're not big stars themselves? I mean, it's pretty simple, and they've got it all sussed.

            Same here. And don't forget Slash, and Rick Nielsen, and all the other talented successful players with lots of guitars...

              Sometimes I'm in a Carvin mood. Others I'm in a Les Paul mood. Or a Tele mood. Or a semi hollow mood. Different strokes for different folks.

                  Some folks in this thread need to understand formal logic. Saying that a player who has many guitar is a crappy player does not mean that a person who has one guitar is a good player -- he can still be a crappy player. This is the difference between 'if' and 'only if' statements.

                  I personally am of the camp that those with lots of guitars, who are not professional players (Rich Robinson and Slash can have as many guitars as they want) tend to be, on average, not so stellar as players. I say this as the owner of several guitars. I like buying guitars and playing and getting different sounds, but this is not playing guitar -- it's a slightly different hobby. It makes sense that the person who dedicates all his resources to playing the guitar will be a better player than the person whose resources are divided amongst playing, reading gear reviews, buying, selling, changing pickups, etc.

                      That's my favorite band.

                      I'd like to see more of the crowd, just for their reaction.
                      One MIA Fender Strat, one Gibson Les Paul, one Martin Acoustic, what more do you need?

                        I have a talent for finding really good guitars at really good prices . . . and then playing them really badly.

                            My guess is there were ~50 in the audience... three of them were looking at each other with a 'WTF?' look on their faces and everyone else was clueless to the tragedy that was occurring mere feet in front of them.

                                here's another hack, has to be compensating for something. I've heard him and he's no good at 8 fingered tapping and making motor bike noises with the whammy bar. Maybe it's just Les Paul players. Looks like he's got himself a 60's tribute down the front right there.
