1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    OK, well the "ultimate" list is already started. How about a "semi-ultimate" list? $25k budget...

    I'd put a Thorn and a JG on my list...

    Turner Model 1 would top the list for me...

    ...and you could add an Ernie Ball Music Man "Mr. Horsepower" Nigel Tuffnel signature axe, too...

    But if I had to have 1 more guitar I'd Get Scott Heatley to design me a Stormy Monday Blues Guitar. It would be either a Gold Top or a Dark Burst with a WCR Betts Set. Nice Fat neck, Jumbo Frets ..........see if he could do a little Fillmore inlay at the 12th fret. [​IMG]:BEER

    I would have to stick with the guitars I currently have and also have on order. (guild bluesbird, modded vintage reissue tele, custom made martin acoustic and on order I have a 53 tele relic and a Gauge Guitars singlecut with P90's)

    the only things I think I would add would be a few more amps and another singlecut speced out like a 58 les paul.

    For me, its my Gibson ES-5 with three P-90's. "They" are talking about this guitar when "They" say "Tone to the Bone!"

    I remember when I could get a Refinished 57 for only $2000 in the early 90's. :jo

    I had dozens of 70's strats and teles for around $500 a pop. :eek:

    Man I'd wish I held on to a few of them..............[​IMG]
