Bought a new guitar and haven’t told your spouse? Read this guide!

How many guitars do you actually need?

Some people (usually non-guitarists) would say the answer to that question is “one.”

But those people are wrong. I’d counter that the answer is always “one more than you currently have.” Which is all well and good, until you try to explain this logic to your significant other.

Non-guitar playing spouses, as a rule, are not very receptive to the “one more than you currently have” principle.

Rather than focusing on important things like one-piece mahogany bodies, mother-of-pearl inlays or TV Jones pick-ups, they’re pre-occupied with the inconsequential, boring details; “we don’t have the room,” “it’s $2000,” “you already own six Les Pauls,” etc.

As a result, bringing a new instrument home without causing matrimonial disharmony can sometimes be a challenge.

But fear not, because I’ve compiled a list of foolproof* strategies for bringing a new guitar into your family without incurring the wrath of your better half!

*Full disclosure: I say that these strategies are foolproof… they almost certainly will not work. Still, worth a go, right?

1.  Lie about how much it cost

She will be annoyed at you for buying a new instrument – you can’t really get around that. But, she thinks you bought that instrument at a steal, she’ll at least admire your bargain hunting tenacity, right?

As a rule, when you tell your wife how much the guitar cost, give them a figure that’s around half what you paid for it. So, to your partner, a $1000 instrument was $500, a $500 instrument was $250, etc. If you spend over a four-figure sum on the guitar (God help you) then shave off a zero to limit some of the damage.

 A word of warning - avoid this strategy if your wife either: 

  1. Knows how much your previous guitars cost
  2. Shares a bank account with you.

2.  Say you got it for free

They can’t be mad at you if it didn’t cost you anything, right?

There are three approaches to take here:

“My friend/boss bought if for me as a surprise birthday present/reward for a job well done”

“I won it in a competition/raffle” (My personal favorite)

“I couldn’t believe it. It was just sitting there in the dumpster outside of Guitar Center/the guitar factory/Peter Frampton’s tour bus. Other than a couple of cosmetic defects, there’s nothing wrong with it!”

This one will only ever work once, so make sure to use it wisely. Oh, and destroy all evidence that YOU paid for it, otherwise this can backfire pretty spectacularly.

3.  Pretend you’ve always had it 

If you’ve already got a sizeable guitar collection, you can always hide your latest purchase in the pack and hope that it gets lost in the milieu.

“That double neck EDS-1275? Nah, that’s not new! I’ve had that since college. Look how beat up it is.”

“The price tag? Oh, I just keep that on there as a memento. You wouldn’t believe how cheap it was! In fact, I didn’t even pay for it; my boss won it for me in a raffle outside Peter Frampton’s tour bus.” 

4.  Hide it

If you’re happy for your new guitar to forever live in the loft/the trunk of your car/at your friend Steve’s house then you don’t even need to worry about the “new guitar” conversation in the first place!The only problem with this solution is that you don’t actually get to play your guitar. But, you do get the satisfaction of knowing that you own it, and that’s all that really matters.

Do you live by the “one more than you currently have” rule? And have you ever hid a guitar purchase from your significant other? Share your stories in the comments.

Sorry guys, my wife is not only cool with the guitars, she paid for 3 out of 5 and all over $2000 each, so six guitars later! Now she does collect stray cats, not the players in the band, little critters, so, 6 guitars, 6 cats!

A friend of mine brought them home and straight into his closet , where it lives for 2-3 weeks . He brings them out and claims they’ve been in the closet quite a while . It worked until his wife looked in the closet and saw 12 cases where 4 had previously been the count . Busted … It cost him a Miata convertible .

Kristen is right in her observation. Most of you who replied to this article need to get spines. If you can’t discuss buying a guitar with your significant other, what does that say about your relationship.

The article was written in jest. Your replies not so much.

I buy older guitars and restore them so that they can be played again. Most of my “reborn” guitars and other stringed instruments are donated to school music programs.

I’ve found that if I buy two at a time, I can get away with only explaining about one. So, you buy a cheap one, and an expensive one, then promptly put the expensive one in the collection, and proudly display the cheap one.

I came into the relationship playing guitar for over 35 years. I already owned three guitars at the time, two Gibson Flying V’s and a Dixon Flying V. I’ve had one of the Gibsons for 34 years, the other for about 6 years and the Dixon V for 35 years. She was ok when I bought a classical guitar for $300.00. She went with me to get my 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard last year. She was surprised at the price at $2500.00 but she said it was my money, I earned it, bills are paid and she was ok with it. We agreed on a 6 month “adoption” period. Only 1 new guitar every 6 months. That sounded like a deal to me. So, to make it fair, I gave her two beach vacations last year, new washer and bought her an engagement ring that was more than my guitar. I got an $800.00 Gibson Les Paul Tribute last October after the second beach vacation. Then, in February, I played a 2018 Gibson Les Paul Traditional and fell in love with it. She said it was really pretty and that I should get it. I paused, told her I’d think about it for a week and came back the next week and bought it. I also picked up a Marshall half stack and Marshall combo earlier this year. Since then, she’s been looking at kitchen appliance upgrades, such as an $1800 fridge, $600 stove, and another beach vacation this year. We discuss purchases over $500.00. And, I try to give her something of equal or greater value. We don’t lie to each other and I think if we did, that would be the real problem. Ex girlfriends are a different story. I’ve often heard “You love that guitar more than me” over the years. Guitars are still with me. Ex girlfriends are long gone. Guess it was true!

I had a guitar store for several years. We specialized in high-end acoustic guitars. Some very unique and incredible instruments came through our shop. In all those years I never once—not even almost—sold a guitar to a guy who said, “Let me talk to my wife about this and I’ll come back.” I heard that line hundreds (maybe thousands) of times. Not one sale happened after those words were spoken.

My last purchase, aG&L legacy delux NOS for $1000 (list $2400) – bargain and guitar number 12;has cost me dearly. I asked the shop to deliver it to work. From where I would smuggle it into home (one black guitar case looks like another, right?) They stuffed up and sent it to home. It cost me $13000 to have the house recarpeted and about $3500 worth of other furniture. I still need a semi and a Gibson.

I bought a two-year-old second hand JSM 10 Ibanez guitar (guitar number 6) on Trade me here in New Zealand. My sister kindly picked it up for me as it was a 4-hour drive away and she lives in that locality. I plan to pick it up soon. I Skyped her to view it and I asked her what model Fender tube amp her husband has. She went out to look at it, came back and said it’s not a Fender it’s a Marshall. I said I’m sure he had a big Fender tube amp. She photographed it and sent me the shot. As we talked we clicked that he had bought a new amp without saying anything to her. She wasn’t a happy girl he had bought it behind her back. Oops! I could be in deep shit with him.
It took me two days to tell my partner I had bought the Ibanez. We went out to dinner, her call, and I go. “I’ve got something to tell you, it’s ok no one died and everything is good”. “I bought a new guitar”. She asked, “have you sold one”? She was fine with it really, it was just the program in my head giving me a little mental grief.

1. I never mention the amount of knitting yarn that accumulates in the spare bedroom.

2. I have baritone ukulele. My wife bought for me on my birthday. We were t a festival and I spent the weekend at the guitar vendor’s booth.

3. One day we were in a guitar shop and my wife was waiting for me to finish looking at instruments, when I picked a 1976 Mossman 12 string guitar. My wife said “that’s a nice sounding guitar, maybe you should buy it.”

Married 36 years.

I so relate to all of the above. I made learning to play a guitar proficiently as my bucket list. I survived my cancer bout and this was on the “will take a while to learn list.” So I started with a 2009 Gibson hummingbird but she was lonely so a Parlor Santa Cruz FIrefly gets impulsed and this little one has a pickup so i then needed an amp. Nothing is worse than a beginner practicing when you neighbor has a loud party. I am eyeballing a Fender JazzMaster and a Taylor V braced guitar. That ought to round out my fun. I am not married and I do not share lol. Yay for the love of guitars and music!!!

Wow. I am woman who plays the guitar and I am in a band. I bought three of my twelve guitars (82 Black Beauty, 89 Strat, ‘08 Tele) from men whose wives gave them ultimatums (it’s me or the guitar!!!) or destroyed most of their beloved guitars or ‘forced’ them to sell off their guitars due to jealousy, general unhappiness in their own lives, mental instability, or combinatios of all three. This level of domestic abuse and vindictiveness and hatred toward one’s spouse is shocking, astounding, and inexcusable. MEN: why are you involved in ANY relationship with anyone where you have to ‘hide’ your beloved possessions, or who would ‘force’ you to sacrifice doing something you love??? Who could ever live or stay with someone who clearly dislikes them so much?!?!?
But, hey, any of you men out there who haven’t grown a spine who thinks he continues to deserve to be treated like garbage – if any of you have a 64 candy apple red Strat your ‘beloved’ wife is forcing you to sell, I’m looking for one.

AND, the happy ending to the story is that two of these guys are now divorced and rebuilding their lives, their dignity, and their guitar collections!!

Like the day I go out to buy a $12 guitar stand, and instead come home with a fabulous old taylor 12 string… who wouldn’t love that!?! My brother, on the other hand, uses the “spread them around the house” technique, so the Mrs. has no idea of how many actually reside in their home. So, ROCK ON, guys!!!

First, I have a wonderful wife and the number of guitars I own is not so much a money thing as is a space thing. I gradually accumulated a collection of several dozen instruments over the last 10-15 years. They are now stashed away literally all over the house. Now, when I get a new one, they act as camouflage for one another. Can’t tell what’s new and what’s “old”. Kind of like don’t-ask don’t tell.

I just stood there blinking at her until she said something like “…or do they all sound different?” Yup that’s what I am going with, they all sound different..

Here’s a few of mine-

- The different one. After bringing Strat #6? 7? (I forget), she used the ’don’t you already have one’ line. My next guitar was a Gibson 335/12. I showed it to her, knowing that she knows I don’t have a 12 string. She knew she was beaten.

- The ‘the gods want me to have it’. Internet guitar auction on the other side of the world. She was away, but left strict instructions. After watching several go cheap, I decided it best not to look and went to bed. I left the computer on and the auction running, so I could see the results in the morning. I had been asleep for some time when the wind blew the bedroom door open. I got up to close it thought I’d look at the auction. The Fender 5 string bass I wanted was up. No-one was bidding. I considered this a sign and press the bid button. All mine, on a single bid.

- The accidental bid. Another internet auction on a laptop with a tricky mouse. Having failed to win the guitar I wanted, I went to move the pointer, for safety. It engaged, didn’t it. “You bid has been accepted” Noooo… “You are the leading bidder” I’m now swearing at the world to outbid me, just as they had done on the one I wanted. “You have won the lot”. Up to then, it was the most I’ve ever paid for a guitar. I fessed up to the wife, promising to sell it. It took a few years, but it finally sold for twice what it had cost me.

- The ’she’s lost count’. I realised I had reached saturation point when the maple Rickenbacker 4004 arrived. She knows I have a (red) 4003, so I chanced my luck, put it away and put the 4004 in the stand. Never noticed.

- The Partscaster. I’ve managed to get a few in by buying parts. I have now two made from Fender Custon Shop parts.

-The pretty one. We had travelled to the US, where guitars are so much cheaper than here. I had just decided on a very nice Fender Custom Shop bass, when my wife looked up at their wall and said, “that’s a pretty blue one”. Yes!! A short time later, I had a Musicman Bongo bass as well.

I’ve currently going a bit nuts with pedals, but I think she’s onto me.

Ha. I must confess, I’ve used some of these. And may use some of the new ones. Later. My funniest story was not about me, but rather a very, very famous musician. I guess I’ll leave the names out for now, but believe me, I would guess anyone reading this would know this person ands work. Oh also, it was told to me by another very well known retailer in NY while we were both in the Admiral’s Club in LA waiting for flights. Anyway, star artist was in retailer’s shop in NY trying out the new LP Historics (this was a number of years ago). He really liked 2 of them and couldn’t make up his mind even though they were almost identical looking guitars. So, he told retail guy, “I want to buy both, but I need you to just hold the other one here for me and I’ll pick it up in a month or 2”. Retail guy says “OK, but why wouldn’t you just take them both home?” Star artist, “no, see, I can take one home and my wife will only give me a little grief. If it’s two, could be painful. But, I can bring the second one in the house later and say it was out for service. Since they look alike, no problems!”
Now this guy probably owns hundreds of guitars, is probably pretty wealthy FROM PLAYING THOSE GUITARS, and STILL gets grief from his wife. So…

This is a genuine story (you couldn’t write it").I recently had a small windfall from my dear old Mum (87 years old) she found out that some insurance premium or savings that matured (that she didn’t know about) and she was £20K better off. As she is very generous, she decided she didn’t need all that money and split it 4 ways, 25% each to myself and my two brothers, keeping the balance for herself. I had been looking and trying to buy a new guitar for months/years, but like a lot of spouses (apparently) my wife is not musical at all and cannot comprehend the pleasure I get “plinking” on my guitar. Prior to getting the surprise windfall, I told her am 63 years of age, worked all my life and think its about time I could treat myself to a decent guitar. I was looking at very reasonably prices guitars and constantly talking about them and showing her them on ebay etc. When I “got the call”, I simply change tactics and said…. I am going to spend a lot of money now. She couldn’t really argue but I still went and bought it without telling her. I put it on a guitar stand in the lounge almost in front of her. It took a while until she realized there was this “new” guitar where the “old” one used to be. Not a happy bunny but she admitted after a couple of days that even she could see that it was a beautiful instrument. So I got away with it with minimal grief. But have to admit, I was a bit nervous waiting for her to spot it! I bought a Taylor 214EC, which is now my most prized possession. I love it and my wife.

Great Subject ! ,and so True ! For the most part my wife has always been the best when it comes to my purchases.
But, she does ask occasionally when did you get that ? and that can be a guiitar, drums or an old car, with which I reply, I’ve had it for a while or a long time, I can’t believe you didn’t notice it. Man I’ve snuck em in the house, hid them in the garage until she wasn’t home so I could sneek them in. In the end it probably didn’t matter to her, it was just me feeling guilty and paranoid. That being said I really did need all of them or It was a bargin that I couldn’t pass up. Now if I just had the brain cells left to remember the songs I am trying to play, that would be great !!!

When my wife and I were engaged (1981) she knew I was into old-school Hawaiian steel guitar music. She engaged the help of one of my guitar friends and found me a 1927 National Tricone which she gave me for a wedding present. She doesn’t play, but understands how much I love instruments and is happy for me when I find something new and special. She also gets very upset when (like so many of us have done) I have to sell something to recoup some fast cash.

I never have to lie about the guitar or the cost. I find that discussing it in advance mitigates all the grief. My wife is awesome (36 years and counting).

I had 12 guitars, she never realized that the bunch increased by one, when I bought the 13th. That was a few years ago. Recently I declared that 13 is a jinx and I need to get the 14th. She didn’t buy it, she said it’s better if I lose one. I have not given up yet, I am thinking about arguing in terms the number of shoes she owns.

I tell my wife about one of every three or four new “acquisitions” just to make it seem like I’m not hiding anything from her. Luckily, she gave up caring around the three dozen mark. Problem is, I have 60 or so instruments now, and I’m running out of space to store them all.

LOL!! Great subject!! I have always taken the strategy of getting a great bargain on the buy. I must admit that I have embellished on how much the savings actually were. My wife is a bargain hunter though, and she really likes it when she shops and gets a good bargain. She’s really proud of herself. A little while ago I bought a high end guitar on impulse. I told her I had to buy it because I got such a “bargain” on the guitar! She said, “See, you’re learning from me!” At that moment I knew I was home free.

OMG, this so true and so hilarious! From someone who has played for 50+ years, I can tell you I have used most of these tactics (lies and deceptions) and probably a few more. “this guitar will triple in value in five years and will really make a nice supplement to our retirement savings” worked sometimes for me. Thanks, I had a great laugh and this just made my day!

Additional strategies…

Claim you traded another guitar for that one and when you are asked which one you traded, describe something that hasn’t been seen or never existed and when your spouse says they don’t remember it simply say, “oh yeah, I had it for years but got tired of it”. Claim you traded for something else that you have interest in. "That new guitar? No, I didn’t pay anything for it… I was on the enthusiast website and somebody offered to trade me guitar for a briefcase / fountain pen / shotgun / car rims / old bottle of bourbon / toolbox or anything else you might have had lying around the house. Advise that you did not find the guitar but are just borrowing it from a friend to see how this particular model or brand feels. If asked years later, just say that your friend never asked for it back so you’re still holding onto it. You can say you were given a lottery ticket as a birthday gift and, much to your surprise, it hit. The person who gave the ticket demanded that you “do something nice for yourself since it was intended to be a gift”. Tell your spouse that you got it really cheap at a pawnshop because “they had no idea what they had in their hands”. You can say that you traded it for lessons you’re giving, lessons in almost anything where you have enough competence that someone might pay you to help. "Jerry was having a hard time figuring out how to use his driving mower so I told him I’d show him a few things but since his finances are low, he offered to give me this guitar in payment. Claim you put it together from spare parts you had accumulated all these years from working on your other guitars and so it is really a Frankenguitar". If you take this line, be sure to hide your boxes and boxes of spare parts. You can say that a long-distance relative left it to you in their will because they were too old to play and knew you like to play guitar. Tell your partner that a guy outside the local Guitar Center was selling it out of the back of his car, claiming he needed the money for child support. “Babe, I didn’t ask too many questions because he was practically giving it away!” Suggest that the owner of the local blues bar you frequent, told you that a recent traveling act left it behind and he wanted it out of there in case they accused him of theft when they came back and found that backstage. Claim that a local small music shop just had a “going out of business and everything must go, our prices are crazy!” sale and this was the last one left so they nearly gave it away.

You might wonder how I have so many of these strategies, but please don’t ask!

You build an expandable guitar rack. Make sure you leave 2 open spaces. That way at a glance, she’ll see 2 empty spaces instead of counting all the guitars that are there. Most people are lazy and will find it easier to count the couple empty slots instead of 8 (or how many you have) guitars.
This work for the gun safe too!
