Which guitar(s), amp(s), or pedal(s) do you buy?
Actually I don't see that 5K. Can you send it again?
Easy one...Trussart Steeltop (may have to go used) and Swart AST head/cab.
Suhr Pro S1, Axe-FX Standard, QSC K10, Rocktron MIDIMate, rack bag.
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!
Nocaster and BF Deluxe Reverb or Princeton. Might be able to have some spare change too.
I'd get a Lowden O25 with a cutaway and move on with my life.
a late 40's Gibson J-45.
beat up fender bass VI ($4k), 90s sovtek big muff ($100), 70s ampeg V4 halfstack ($800), $100 in backup tubes and strings.
Martin 40 series guitar
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.
-Robot Flying V
-Marshall DSL Head/CAb
-Morley Volume pedal
probably still have change.....apparatifs for the band
I'd just replace this rig:
A custom Tele
Small tube combo, DR or 18w, depending.
used Tom Anderson Hollow drop top T HSH w/ vintage trem
used Silverface Vibroverb
Keeley Comp 4 knob
72 degree OD
(2) CMAT Deeelay
Voodoo Labs PP2+
lava cables throughout
Trailer Trash board
PS I got all my stuff used and in perfect NOS condition from people who were desperate to sell and I had enough left over to take my wife on a nice week long vacation where I found a 62 strat at a garage sale for 200 dollars. And I bought it.
Fat Strat, Fender Twin and a whack of pedals.
Lots of change left.
Used PRS Singlecut Artist (around $2500 right now).
Used Mesa 2:90 ($750)
Used 4x12 ($250)
