    Gibson R8 (used) and a Marshall tube amp. I've got GAS for a Bluesbreaker right now; so, I'll take one of those. :)

    Get an Agile, a Line6 Spider, and a pick.

    Hit Vegas for a 2 day bender with the rest.

    You'll thank me later. Try the veal!

    I'd get a Lowden O25 with a cutaway and move on with my life.

    I'd get a Lentz HSL guitar for $2550 or $1700-$1900 used
    A Silverface Fender Deluxe Reverb from the 70's for @ $800 and have a great tech tune it up for me with all NOS tubes (maybe another $500)
    And I'd get a Richter 5E3 Amp for $700

    with the remaining $1000 or so I'd get a good pedal like a Zendrive and use the rest for guitar lessons from top pros

    Taking into account discounts that stores give me, I'd probably go with this:

    Mesa Mark V
    Port City 2X12
    Suhr Modern - Mahogany body/neck, quilt top, floyd, SS frets.

    With whatever's left, I'd either go for a G Major and Midi controller, or do single pedals. Delay first, boost second.

    I'd personally go for a used Historic LP in the $2500 range, and get an Aiken Intruder w/ cab. Whatever's left goes to buy the nicest cable I can find. :)
