    The PRS guitar and amp David Grissom uses, plus a few of this pedals. No illusions of sounding just like him, but at least I'd know I had good gear.

    I'm buying used where possible.

    Reverend Jetstream 290: $700
    Reverend 6-gun: $700
    Larivee L-03R Acoustic- $800
    SX Jazz Bass - $125

    Line 6 m13: $400
    Menatone TBIAC 8knob: $200
    Ibanez DE-7: $50
    Tech21 Blonde: $125
    Tech21 SVT: $125
    2 QSC k10 powered speakers: $1400

    That leaves $375 for capos, picks, cables, straps, etc. And I can gig out in almost any situation on acoustic, electric, or bass.
