Only you can answer that question my friend.

I've really thinned out my stuff. I play in the church band now, through the P.A. I'm old enough I don't want to carry amps anymore.

I have a 68 Princeton Reverb and a Mustang 1.

Would I like more? Oh yes! But alas, money is going for other things now.

I practice at two different places and got to the point, I don't like carrying amps. So I leave the Vox AC15 at one place and Fargen at another. My Allen and Dr Z stay at home or go to gigs.

Four is enough for me

Some of you guys are showing great restraint here!

I've had more amps - too many - now down to 3 tube amps and a Pathfinder 15R. But...I just ordered a Dr. Z Maz 18 JR (NR) head, and an Ethos Overdrive amp...I think I've gone crazy! And I have a couple 12" speakers looking for a home (in a 212 cab to use with the Maz 18).

I may get rid of something after the Maz 18 gets here, but here we go again...

There's no such thing as too many.

I like guitars, but I LOVE amps.

No more than eight unless you also play bass then you need 12.

I've got two versions of my least favorite amp--
the Champion 600.

Currently I have:
Fender Blues Jr
Fender Champion 600 modded
Fender Champion 600 stock
Peavey Vypyr 15 with Jensen Mod 10"
Peavey Vypyr 30
Roland MicroCube
Acoustic Image Ten2.

The only one I really need is the Acoustic Image because its 800 watts and I can play bass, keyboards and electric as well as acoustic guitars through it.

"""Don't have too many guitars. Don't have too many amps. Not a collector, and don't care to keep consuming"""

+1 a lot.

We are all different, but for me...

1 nice 15 watt tube amp Laney VC15, 1 nice 15 watt SS amp Vox Pathfinder 15r, 1 home-made Kruton 50 watt SS amp now used with a compressor for bass into a 15" Seager bin and my Vox DA5 for anywhere.

I only have 1 Strat, 1 LP, 1 Bass, 1 decent acoustic steel and 1 acoustic nylon... but there are pedal boards, multifx and DAW's too and 1 PA and 2 drumkits.

Covers everything I do/need and my mates can come around and they only need to bring beer...

...as I even keep some thin picks for the wimps.

How many are too many? Maybe a couple more than I've got, but then it's always a couple more than I've got at any one time.

I used to have 20 but that was too many. Down to 14 now and that's still too many. A good number would be in the 8 to 10 range, if you have the right ones.

A few of these actually work! Newest is from 1967, oldest probably 1953 or so.

BF Super Reverb
BF Princeton Reverb
BF Deluxe Reverb
64 Champ (tweed style cab/black tolex)
Wide panel tweed Champ (with matching lap steel)
Gibson GA-79RVT
Gibson Bell BA-15RV (or maybe it's a BA-15RVT)
Ampeg B-15D
Ampeg Jet J-15D
Univox U-75
Kalamazoo Model Two
Supro Golden Holiday (actually not mine, just on loan)
two old '50s tube amps, can't remember the brand

The only one I regret ever selling was a BFVR.

I'm guessing about 40.

so my answer is I don't have too many.
I have WAY too many.
