Rick has hundreds and hundreds of guitars, some I'm positive he doesn't even know he has.

From the walls of the Burpee Museum, storage sheds, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, his house, maybe even in his car Rick Nielsen is know for an amazing collection of guitars. I've been very lucky to have seen and held "some" of his beauties.

I geek out on watching my favorite guitar players showing off their guitar collections. the years of collecting, buying, trading, and stealing is amazing. I'm not saying Rick stole any of these, but it happens.

Some of Rick Nielsens guitars in this video include:

  • Checkerboard Hammer
  • The Beatles Guitar
  • Bun E Carlos Drum Finish Guitar
  • Pick Design Guitar
  • Rockford Box Guitar

The collection is amazing, I wonder if Rick ever goes across a guitar that he has no idea where it's from?

From the people at Premier Guitar, here is a Rig Rundown in 2012 of guitars that Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick takes on tour.
