Ahh,,, the ole, "there's no more room honey" trick,,,
My girlfriend uses that one as well,,,
What I did was organize "after" buying some wanted guitars,,,
A happy accident really,,, lol
I simply started the organizing process, moved things around every time another guitar was obtained.
I was surprised she didn't even notice the new ones, lol,,,
Even more surpirsed she heard the different tones when she asked "why do you need so many guitars"?
Plugged each one in, and she heard the difference right away,,, and she is tone deaf, claps off beat,,, but loves music as a listener...
(Which might prove I can't play ??? lol,,,, )
Nothing like a Strat in my opinon,,,,
Always play before I purchase, and never plug them in...
For me I get more understanding from playing and laying my ear on the body,,, (not easy, lol)
Good luck on your quest !!!
