Here it is Andy-maniacs; the definitive museum of Andy's guitars he had during his days with the Police. Like fellow guitar legend Steve Howe of Yes, Andy's ears are highly tuned to the differing tones of various guitars, and he knows exactly what to use for different situations. When asked why he has so many guitars, he laughed and claimed that he just has that many guitars! He is first and foremost a player and not a collecter; he plays and uses every guitar he has, even preciously rare ones like his 1961 Gibson Johnny Smith hollow-body. His guitar "collection" during the mid-80's numbered around 100, and he has since then, "cut down to about 70."
So sit back, enjoy the collection; and prepare to further explore the world of Andy Summers.
