Guitars are really hermaphroditic.

RE: how many guitars do you have? (in reply to Erik van Goch

A Freudian view point of a guitar would have wide hips, a sensual hole or two, and long neck it would be female. But then how many guitar swinging rock players (not all of course but you've seen them) can wear the guitar low and nasty and it becomes in effect a kind of penis extension device.

The guitar has both male and female attributes, yet in the languages like Spanish that express nouns with genders, the guitar is female in gender.

Then there is the old rhyme about Freudian relationships between an objects shapes and its inherent sexuality: Whether concave or convex, everything leads to sex.

I think of the guitar non anthropomorphic and non gendered. It is an inanimate instrument like a surgical tool is an object.

But my point of view on gender does not matter, guitar owners like boat owners will continue to give guitars cutie pie names. What I really think should be solved is what do you call a group of guitars?

A herd, a bevy, a unit, a pack, a gaggle, a brace, a pod, a flight, a school....

What is group of guitars to be called?

A pluck, a strum?

My wife isn't very musical, so she would call it a 'bore' Although she is happier now I play flamenco instead of blues all the time

In England in the days of court musicians a group of viols could have been called a "chest of viols" because they were kept in things that would look like clothes chests.

These collective nouns for animals would be fun to try out: http://www.thealmightyguru.com/Pointless/AnimalGroups.html

Waterfowl - Knob, Plump

One could say and A Knob of Electrics!

Swallows - Flight, Gulp

A Gulp of Ukulele!

Cats (Flamencos) --Clowder, Clutter, Pounce, Dout, Nuisance, Glorying, Glare

A Clowder or a Glare of Flamencos...

Snails---Escargatoire, Rout, Walk

An Escargatiore of Classical Guitar.

* that was my Merry Christmas post Bah HAMbug *

Six guitars in the house, a few drifting around Austin lent out to people who probably think they own them by now....

Depending on how you store them one might consider a "bunch" or a "stack".....

but you can also grade them on function and value: two of diamonds (a set of useless guitars), * of a kind, a street, a full house (like blanca,negra,strat,12 string and classical), a royal flush (basically a full house but at fleta level), a quarter-pack (13 guitars) a half-pack (26 guitars) and a full-pack (52 excl. the jokers)....when the last 3 mega-groups represent some higher plan (rather than being a random group of 13, 26 or 52 guitars) one might call it a quarter-half-full/set.

From a Freudian point of view however one should probably just call them a "harem" :-)

Hmm, a pack guitar of frettishists posting on line.


I kind of like the poker hand analogy. Aces wild could mean you have a hand with a cheapo Valencia and a Dammann in the same hand.

Or Five Condes' would be a hand of jokers. Are there that many in one deck?

In my original setup one could argue if it should be called 5 of a kind (which i.m.o. is allowed in a guitars group hug) or maybe should be divided in 2 groups like pair of blancas/3 negras..... the jokers i planned for the useless guitars and if you indeed consider those Condes to be a useless guitars by nature this group should be called 2 of diamonds :-)

I read Paco had around 30 guitars back in 1986. Conde, Ramirez and some Japanese guitar... Any information about what happened to Paco's guitars after his death?
