    Guitars, amps, keys, drums -- you name it; if you use it to make music, it counts.

    Judging by the past threads that have discussed the ratio between what this forum spends on guitars vs. amps, I'm surprised to see mostly guitars so far, but I'm sure that will change.

    PRS Rosewood neck Custom 24, artist package.

    2 adats when they were brand new(4k each) and a soundtracs topaz24 with meter bridge. Around 5 grand if I remember. Ever since then I've hovered around 1500-2500 for guitar gear, as it rarely looses so much value as electronics. My adats are worth about $150 now. THe board I still like, though I would'nt have done it this way a second time. I should have spent 10 grand on some used pro board at the time.

    Michael Lewis archtop, the "San Rafael" model, one of two made. I'll just say it was over $6000 and leave it at that.
