For me it is the strat type. Specifically the SSS configuration. I have had no less than 2 at any given time. As I look for another guitar , I’m thinking of adding a third or fourth. I don’t have any maple boards, I don’t have surf green... on and on it goes. Love the way they feel, play and that chimney goodness.
I have a sss Strat in 2 tsb/maple, a sss in 3 tsb/rosewood, a sss in greenburst/roasted maple, a H-H in blonde/rosewood and a SSH in black/rosewood strung as a baritone. The 3 tsb will soon be transformed into sherwood green. So yeah, ditto on never enough Strats although I could see the madness continuing with Teles too. Right now I have 1 trad Tele build in natural/maple and one whack job seafoam green thinline/P90 & rail humbucker with a Gibby scale neck/birdseye/ziricote board with pearloid blocks and PRSish headstock. I can think of half a dozen different variations of Tele I'd like. Rosewood, Nashville, Esquire, Nocaster, Bigsby, HH, etc.

I've never owned more than one at a time unless one was being replaced and soon sold, but Strats and Teles have so much variation, they're the kings of this. Not just with obvious differences (thinline tele vs. standard, vintage vs. modern, etc.) but even small variations can change the character so much. I'm not sure any other guitar styles have so much variation. Yeah, Les Pauls vary a lot, but it is far more conceivable for a person to get ONE LP that they love and feel okay selling all the rest rather than having different flavors.
Strats made by Fender only. Up until recently I had 17. I traded two in for other guitars. It stings that I did it. I've also offloaded Les Pauls, an SG and an RG. They were like meh, whatever, don't miss them.
I would have a Les Paul if they made an affordable chambered one for lighter weight. They typically kill my back. I would love to have an Artcore Expressionist AF93. Would have bought one had they been available when the sale was on at Sweetwater. l

Strats. If a salesperson can't sell me a strat, they're doing something wrong lol. They have to differ in features like pickups, fretboard, color, etc to keep it interesting. Plus, they're not delicate like LPs, so you can leave them out of the case, basically around the house.
I am partial to Gibson guitars, but they're just my preference. In truth, I like all guitars, and would like to own one of every kind ever made, and two of the others. If anyone feels they have too many of a certain brand/model, you can send them to me.
