Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is a man of many passions — not all of them vampire-related. Yesterday, he shared one of them with the Instagram-verse. Who knew Ian had such a beautiful guitar collection?

“Sanity in my house... Good night ya'll,” Ian captioned the Instagram photo of his rather impressive guitar collection — complete with both acoustic and electric variety. Why haven’t we seen a Damon campfire guitar-playing scene? This seems like a missed opportunity on TVD’s part.

We suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that Ian has such a fine assortment of guitars. Last year, we saw him playing guitar on the London set of his film, The Anomaly. “Singing a bittersweet goodbye to my character Harkin Langham & his lair on the set of @theanomalymovie,” Ian wrote along with the pic of himself looking dapper in bow-tie and jacket. In the caption, he thanked Martin “for making this amazing instrument that gets me through sleepless nights.” Aww. We’re guessing it’s part of his collection now.

Ian seems to value music highly. After all, he’s besties with Bright Eyes’ frontman Conor Oberst.

Are you impressed and/or surprised by Ian’s impressive guitar collection? Do you think Damon plays any musical instruments? If so, should he and Enzo start a boy band? Sound off in the comments below!

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
