    So I have my PRS Hollowbody II up on ebay through a friend, and with the money I get if it sells, I want some new gear. The problem is, I don't know what I want. I can't decide between a new amp or a new guitar. I already have an '08 Ebony Les Paul Standard coming via UPS Friday.

    Here's what I have guitar wise:
    EJ Strat
    AVRI 52 Tele
    Hendrix Voodoo Strat
    R8 Les Paul
    '61 RI SG
    ES-335
    Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic
    (08 Les Paul Standard) - not here yet

    Here's what I already have amp wise:
    Great Dane combo (built in my hometown, marshall-type combo amp 40W)
    Samamp (kind of vox-ish, built in my hometown - selectable wattage)
    Fender Hot Rod Deville 2x12
    Mesa Dual Rec half stack
    Mesa recto-pre amp and 2:100 poweramp with a couple cabs
    VOX AC30CC2

    I was thinking of getting either a good Fender amp (either a bassman or a twin, or even a super-sonic) or like a hiwatt head or Soldano head.

    OR...

    guitar wise, I was looking at a AVRI 62 Strat, a Les Paul Custom, or a Gibson Firebird.

    Anybody have any input? I'm pretty much going to have extra cash and GAS, and I'm bad at decision making, so I like to gather different opinions.:munch

    You could always go pedal crazy or get some recording gear.

    Hmm... interesting idea. I have been meaning to upgrade from an Mbox to one of those digi002 rack thingys for Pro Tools. I have also had my eye on a T-Rex delay and one of those new TC nova-delays. I shall add these into my suggestion box! Thanks!

    Anybody else?

    Since you have a couple strats and LP's already, you should go with the Firebird; especially as it appears you are a southern gent.

    Or just forget about the $$ until you see "IT" and you`ll be prepared.

    +1.. I don't know how many times I've bought a guitar or amp because I had some money burning a hole in my pocket only for a few days later a killer deal pop up on something else that I would rather have.:horse

    Buy used if you're not certain about it.
