    I thought it'd be interesting to see the different levels of saving going on with us. Me, maybe not in this order but it is lowest to highest:

    New Bridge for my MIM Strat
    SC sized HB for bridge
    An "analog" type Delay to compliment my DD3
    Complete retube of my TSL

    Used Heritage LP style

    That's my grocery list for the foreseeable future. What are you needing?

    I plan on buying the PRS next year and then I'm on no rush for the others.

    Firstly saving for a prudent reserve of 9 mos. of salary. (I'm at about 2 mos. saved now, so I have a way to go). I have some money going towards retirement too.

    As far as gear goes, I haven't started saving, but my number's more or less up on the Glaswerks wait list, so I will be putting money aside for that. I'd like to get a Bludo too, so I'm saving for the deposit on that too (technically).

    Maybe I should get off your lawns. Prudent and responsible geezers.

    Aside from all the responsible savings... which is wise these days...

    I'm saving for some amp with an EF86 channel. Vox UK, Gabriel, Matchless... I'll move some gear to get there - that's where the savings will be generated.

    That's all I want next year. Really.

    Not really saving for anything but I do plan on buying an ENGL Powerball in the very near future.
