A word about guitars

Ok, I just felt in the mood for this ... for the first time in ages all my guitars are home ... my arsenal of guitars is such ...

A Martin DM - my main guitar, it has a sweet low growl to it. He dosn't travel much anymore, I'e been mean enough to him

A Takamine EG531SC - My workhorse guitar. It has a wonderful preamp and sounds pretty darn good all by itself. The guitar that you are most likely to see me with

A Stella Harmony 3/4 size - Indeterminate year, but it's kinda sweet. It has a certain 60s cheap guitar cheese that I dearly love. She will be travelling with me more often once I get a gig bag for her.

A very old Harmony archtop - Very very very beat up, probably beyond repair. I havent had it out in ages. It makes me sad.

A Greco electric 12 string - Another guitar that I havent played in too long. It will get pulled out and restrung this week. The guy who I bought it from wants it back and I need to make up my mind. With the money he is offering (what I paid for it) I could probably buy a cheap mandolin or banjo. Something to start with. Any opinions ???

There are two other instruments, a Montana 3/4 size and a Dean 1/2 size guitar that are abused by other folks in my house.

I don't have nearly enough guitars.
