How many guitars do Adam and Edge have?

Just curious, if anybody knows, how many guitars does Edge own, and how many bass guitars does Adam have?

Also, anyone have pics of a whole bunch of Adam and Edge's guitars/bass guitars?

Hehe Edge could open his own guitar store I think, put it that way.

Adam has at the least, a dozen.

Think that Vh1 show, Edge had 47? 37? a lot either way.

(Has a few pics of some of Adam's basses)

This site doesn't show that green one he's been playing during "City" and he also has a tan/bronze colored Fender bass (I saw it on a Vh1 special).

I heard a rumour that Edge had some of his guitars water damaged. It was all of his secondary guitars he had in storage.

At the shows I believe Edge changed between 3 or 4 guitars.

Not as many as I expected.

During Elevation, he went through 8 or 10 different guitars each night (depending on the setlist).

In the Metallica Documentary, they had 600 between the 3 members.

I think Clapton once had upwards of 200 - before he sold off most of them.

I also know Kravitz and Ben Harper have very large collections - some musicians have crazy collections, but most of them sit on a shelf or on the wall.

I find that kinda weird. I have one guitar. I may eventually get a few more, but probably not more than 5. I'd rather love and enjoy a few guitars than have a bunch but never use more than a few of them.

For most people somewhere between one and three is all they need... I have three basses and two guitars at the moment, the guy who plays guitar in my band has about 12 I think... unfortunately it is fun to buy guitars...
