    My main amp cost me 250 off craigs list and I like it more and more.

    Id love a real les paul but...they just cost too much.

    I may get a wireless...

    My internet-self is boring but satisfied: old Tele, old Boogie, old Cube 60, old TS9, newish Mooer Yellow Comp (great for such a cheap tiny pedal), Boss RV5, Boss DD3.

    What more could a man want?
    (A good 335, a good Dumble clone, a lottery win............)

    Tele, check. 335, check.
    Amp (or two, lol), check.

    Yeah, I'd be satisfied if I were you too.

    Very nice.

    I think the only thing I really "gas" for is more time to play music with my band.

    I feel totally set with amps and pedals. My main board hasn't been changed in a couple years. Small board almost a year. Amps a year. Guitars on the other hand...

    I am too...but to use Mark Twain's phrase I ain't talked it around.

    I just sold a guitar without buying another straight away as well but even if I replace it, it will be a low cost beater.

    I much prefer my AC30/Blues home/gig amp to the AC15/Green I have at rehearsal space and may make that change if the opportunity presents.

    But pedalboard, main guitar(s)....I'm set.

    Timmers, I don't see one ESS style or one El Pee style in there. Get one of each (preferably a custom built from the small builder of the week (TGP approved of course)). Reassess your satisfaction factor after receiving said pieces.
