    If they had to be new amps:
    Ceriatone JTM45
    Ceriatone Tweed Twin
    Ceriatone SSS

    Enough money left over for a few cases of beer and a cheap ukelele.

    5K... I'd get either a PWE, an SLO, or a Friedman BE.

    As of this moment, the PWE EH3 in creme with a sky blue emblem panel is heavily on my radar and I will have it within a couple weeks - thanks Oz H!!!

    I could use a car, or put it to one of the kids college educations. But if someone really twisted me arm...

    I miss my elmwood modena 60, but I'd have to look around at what's current/new in the small head market. That would leave some cash for a nice used xxxxxx, TBD

    Those are the amps that I was never able to buy when they were new. I'd also pick up a new Fender Vibrolux.
