If I still had it all...

I was talking to a friend about all the gear we've been through over the years and we were thinking about what it would be like if we had kept everything we ever owned, so it got me thinking about my gear past and what I would have if I had kept everything I ever owned. Here's what I can remember:

Guitars:
2x Epiphone ET-290N's
Fender MIM Stratocaster
Fender HWY1 Telecaster
Fender Squier Jagmaster
Fender Talon III
Fender MIM Telecaster
Fender Scorpion Esquire
Fender Deluxe Super Stratocaster
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Gibson ES-137 classic
Gretsch (one pickup cheap guitar, can't remember the model)
Epiphone Les Paul Special
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Dean ML w/floyd rose
Ibanez RG470
Ibanez RG7620
3x Line 6 Variax's
Music Man John Petrucci Signature model
Yamaha 1972 acoustic
Ibanez nylon string acoustic

Amps:
My parents stereo
Crate GX-15
Line 6 Flextone II XL
Marshall DSL50
THD Univalve
Orange AD30TCH
Rivera Knucklehead '55
Vox AC15
Bad Cat Cub IIR
Peavey Delta Blues
Epiphone Blues Custom
Fender Pro Jr
Fender Blues Jr
Fender Blues Deluxe
Fender Hot Rod Deville 4x10
Fender Twin Reverb
Fender Deluxe Reverb
Fender Cyber Twin
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier

Hughes & Kettner Edition Tube

Pedals, etc..
too many to remember... a few that stand out however that I wish I still had:
3x Line 6 PODXTL's
Bad Cat 2-tone
Mesa V-twin


Ahh, how I wish I had kept it all...
I know there are a few I forgot... I'll have to think about it some more. As you can see I tend to be heavy on the Fenders

Wow. That's a lot of sweet gear. But you spelled Squier wrong.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Of course you would miss the Duncan, Dave!

I want to do this just to see if I can remember all the guitars I've gone through over the years. My list list will consist of a lot more acoustics than most here I'd guess. I'll probably forget something.

Acoustics past:
Epiphone PR200
Yamaha AEX4?
Carvin Cobalt C250
Takamine GS330S
Wechter Pathmaker ?
Breedlove AC200/SM
Rainsong Parlor
Taylor Baby
Taylor Big Baby
Larrivee Parlor
Seagull Artist Folk
Stringsmith Vagabond
Go-guitars Go-M
Art & Lutherie Ami Cedar

Current acoustics:
Art & Lutherie Folk Spruce
Charvel 625C

Electrics:
Lotus Strat copy
Danelectro 56U2 reissue
Traveler Pro-series acoustic/electric hybrid
(this was one of the made in the USA versions before Fender took them over)
Custom Tele thinline (mostly Warmoth parts)
Custom Tele thinline hybrid electric/acoustic
(mostly USACG and Carvin parts)
Custom modified strat (from a Carvin Bolt kit)

I don't own any electric guitars at the moment.

Amps (I never had any really nice electric amps, one nice acoustic):
Kustom ?? reverb
Vox Pathfinder
Prime 50 watt bass amp
Ultrasound Acoustic Amp (30 watt)

There have been quite a few other instruments along the way too. Bass, mandolins, ukuleles, harmonicas, etc.

I think I would be happier getting rid of some gear. Too much makes me always have something to maintain or restore.

Yeah I've gone through a decent amount of gear over the years. However, the past few years I've maintained pretty much the exact same equipment. Anyway, what I absolutely miss the most is my old 7-string Music Man Petrucci guitar. I'll definitely have to pick one up again sometime in the future. Best guitar I've ever played!

I have only been playing for 6 years and haven't had a lot of money to spend on equipment but here's what I used to have:

Guitars:Alvarez RD20SC acoustic/electric
Squier Standard Strat

I don't miss the Alvarez much because my Seagull blows it in the weeds. I miss the Squier sometimes because I could get a darker tone out of it than my Godin SDxt. The only thing I didn't like about the Squier was the narrow neck.

Amps: still using the same Kustom KMA 65 keyboard amp I bought 5 years ago.

Effects

Digitech RP100 multi-effects
Zoom 504 acoustic multi-effects
Zoom A2 acoustic multi-effects

I am definitely happier with less gear.

Thanks, I ALWAYS spell that wrong for some reason

There are a few things on there that I really wish I still had... The Epiphone ET-290N and Bad Cat come to mind...
I sold that guitar to a girl I had a crush on in High school for next to nothing because she said she wanted to learn to play... Turns out she really didn't care about learning to play she just wanted an excuse to flirt with me and I was too dense to get the hint
Anyway, it was my first electric and I loved it and I always regret letting it go. Her and I split ways after high school and I never saw her or the guitar again
