    (That combo sounds amazing and could be purchased gently used for about a grand. No pedals needed)

    Not that it would happen, Insured to the hilt and bank account pretty flush, But I'd go with a First Act VW Garage Master, $200 +- and a used Kustom 72 Coupe 2x12, $500 +- Then spend the rest on hookers and booze.

    Used and modified PRS SE 245 or Tremonti SE (I bought my Tremonti SE with Mann-made bridge, locking tuners, tusq nut, and DiMarzio pups for $500.00)

    Used BOSS ME-80 or Katana Head w/footswitch to run direct like I do now.

    I would probably spend the grand and go into debt to get what I really want. Debt is what this country is all about, anyway.

    Still a home player, so (based on local prices where I am):

    Yamaha Pacifica 120H (dual humbucker model): $300
    Laney L5 Studio or VHT Special 6 + Torpedo Captor: $500
    Mooer Radar: $150
    Assorted cables and cheap adapter: $50

    I wanted to do an overdrive or boost or something, too, but this is a rig I could be satisfied with for a good while.

    First, I’d refuse to pay the ridiculous used prices I see people try to get. I believe with some patience, I could land:

    A Quilter OD200
    An old Avatar 1x12 or 2x12
    A beat older PRS SE
    A Korg Pitchblack tuner
    A Boss DD_ delay

    Actually wouldn't hurt to pair back to this...

    Gonna go with euros here. It's easier :p. All prices new from thomann, delivered to my door in 4 days or less.

    Harley benton SC Custom VB B-stock - 162
    Joyo meteor - 118
    HB 212 V30 cab - 198
    Cables - 60
    Nux Cerberus - 215
    Mooer Wahter - 98
    Channel switch pedal and associated parts - 30
    Weed - 100
    Beer - 19

    1000€

    I could probably score half of that on local frogslist at 50-60%

    I could also save a few more bucks for weed by nixing the Cerberus and just going with basic Joyo/HB OD, delay and verb clones.

    That's basically my current light weight/dive bar setup right now, except I have better pickups in the cheap Chinese guitar.

    Any of my amp/guitar combos would come in under this price, but if I could have only one, for the sake of versatility, I'd take my Harley Benton CST-24T and my Boss Katana 50, and spend the left over $600 on more guitar lessons.

    Tje CST-24T is an extremely versatile guitar. The pickups sound great, and with the coil split you can also get great single coil tones. In single-coil mode, the bridge pickup has all the twang you could ever want from a Telecaster.

    The Boss Katana 50 has all of the effects and tones that I could need.

    If I didn't need the versatility, and just wanted to get my favorite tones, I'd use a Vintage V100PGM into my Crate V1215. The Vintage has a great, bright PAF tone, plus the middle position has that out of phase sound that I love. The Crate is and older American made 15 watt tube amp that has a great, natural sounding overdrive with a lot of bottom end that I like. I paid $400 for the guitar (used) and $200 for the amp (also used), so I'd have plenty of money left over to throw a nice pedal board together.
