TWO’S COMPANY

Jay Edema and David McArthur have amassed a collection of guitars – numbering in the hundreds – that will make your eyes water. But their infatuation with all things strung goes way beyond simple hoarding or speculation…
It’s fair to say that Jay Edema is a fan of Yamaha SGs. He has 123 of them

”OUR OBSESSION GOT OUT OF HAND. IF I WANTED TO STAY MARRIED, I HAD TO FIND SOMEWHERE FOR MY GUITARS TO GO, AND THIS PLACE CAME UP”

What happens when your guitar collection gets out of hand? When your compulsion to buy erupts into an irresistible urge that never seems to ease?

Fear not, help is at hand. There are support groups you could join, or you could seek professional advice.

That’s when we started talking about guitars.”

Jay is an offshore safety professional and David is a senior instrument technician in the oil industry.
