    Most played at the moment is new-old Epiphone Goth Explorer I got, since M80M is now missing some saddles. Fretboard on the M80M I actually painted black but the lighting is bad in the first image. I also painted Explorer's fretboard later.

    Chopeth, I dig the white tolex matching EVH set up, I take it those guitars are the same brand (1st pic), but what are they? the one on the right has a quite tasty look to the wood top.

    Most used: Martin Junior Dreadnought - out of it's case for probably 10 hours per week, total play time probably about 6-8 hours per week.

    Strandberg Boden OS7 - Played <1 hour per week at the moment. Very unlikely to sell, since when I'm in an electric mood it's the perfect guitar for me.

    Ibanez 8 string (can't remember the model name) - Has not been played in months. I should probably sell it.

    Ibanez K7 - Has not been played in over a year. Will not be sold for sentimental reasons.

    I've also just taken a Crafter 12 string into the collection, it belongs to my dad but he wants me to look after it for a few months. This will be my second most-played guitar as of today. Once it goes back I'll probably buy a Faith 12 string and that will see more play time than my Strandberg too.

    I never thought I'd find myself in this situation, wanting to play acoustics more than electric. How things change.

    I actually rotate a bunch of my collection depending on style of music and tunings, so I can't pick a most played. Although I would say this guy is probably the least played. it's become more a collector piece even though it is a pretty great build/quality guitar, just haven't connected with the pups it has.

    I have 10 guitars and a bass. I keep most of my guitars in their cases except 2 at a time, so each of them get their player time in a row :lol:

    but at the moment, my PRS SE Zach Meyers and my Peavey Cirrus 5 bass get all the fun. The overall least played would be my Taylor DN3 and my 1989 Charvel 375 dlx.

    My least played guitar would be my Seagull made by Godin. I just don't play that much acoustic. Maybe I shouldn't have spent that much money on it, but hey, tax refunds. I just tried a bunch of acoustics at my local guitar store and picked the one I liked the most. It sounds awesome tho'!

    My most played guitar would be my low-end LTD viper 200fm. It is a workhorse and have been a loyal friend to me since I was 16. Some guitars are just destined to be yours forever. I sold it to fund more gear and it came back to me ...twice! A true love story. I played countless shows with it, wrote a crap ton of song with it. No matter how much I love my SS Viper to death, its LTD lil' sister is my to-go guitar for everything and I would take it on tour anytime. I actually used it last summer for the Obscene Extreme festival. It is currently at my friend's house for a pickup change, but I can't wait to have it back!

    From most used to least:

    LTD EC-1000 (Primary)
    Fender MIM Strat (Probably get more use once I've upgraded everything)
    Ibanez RG Premium (it's my backup)
    Ibanez RG7321 (for when I really need the 7 string range)

    and I basically never touch these anymore:
    Jackson JS32T Warrior
    Epiphone G-310

    I just keep those two around for sentimental value. They were my firsts.

    With a total of 15 currently...

    Most played to least played:

    * Carvin DC700 Koa
    * Schecter Hellraiser Solo II ( passive)

    * PRS S2 semi-hollow body

    Sixes:
    Most: PRS SE Holcomb. Also my newest and most used by a long shot.
    Least: Ibanez Gio that's a few years old, don't know the exact model - a friend straight up gave it to me because it was collecting dust. It plays great but the neck has a bit of a bow and the trem pretty much had to be blocked to get it to tune stably.

    Sevens:
    I currently only own two, an Ibanez SIX27FDBG and a Jackson JS22-7. They basically get equal playtime because they're usable for very different things. I find the Ibanez much more playable, but the pickups aren't exactly ultra "metal" - it's essentially the one I "go to" when I'm too lazy to plug in. Scale length and aftermarket SD pickups in the JS22-7 make it preferable for most metal. Neither of these get nearly as much mileage as my old RG-7621, which I should never have sold, as "boring black strat" as it was.
