Hi guys, just wanted to stop here first, and introduce myself. I'm Bill, I'm am an amplifier junky, and a closet Kustom lover. I've had many over the years, and I'm onto a couple more Kustom's as we speak. I have 65 Amplifiers, Fender, Marshall, Mesa, Sunn, Gretsch, blah, blah blah.. I guess this would all seem pretty odd, and so would I, if I also didn't have 56 guitars..

Hello and welcome to ya!
Well Bill it may be better to have more guitars then amps, as of right now I have 32 amps, split about 50/ 50 between tube and solid state and let me tell you it's a job in itself just to plug all the amps on once every 3 months to keep the power supply filters in as good a shape as possible!

The tube amps come in real handy in the cold weather like we just had as I had 4 of them on to supliment the lack of heat in my apartment, lol!

Lol! Thanks for the offer but I live up 3 good size flights of stairs so I'LL pass with the weight of a real SVT!

Last year I worked on yet another 1971 Fender 400 PS amp head and that beast tips the scales at 95 lbs!

Hi, and welcome. I only have a few amps, myself (3 Kustoms, 1 Krossroad, and a handful of lesser-known beasts, all needing significant repairs), but I do have about 23 combo organs, which is probably more odd than a collection of amps or guitars, I guess.

But you're definitely in the right place here!

You must also have a huge house with 23 organs.

Ha! They're combo organs (think Vox Continental, Farfisa Compact). They fold up to a size about as large as two suitcases. I have most of them on two large shelf units on one wall in my music room.
