    At the risk of stating the obvious, it depends on what style music you play...

    A used CS Strat, a KOT, a couple of cables and a Dr. Z combo. Best bang for the buck.

    I leave the $5000 in the PayPal account in anticipation of possible chargebacks and massive eBay fees for whatever I sold to get it. ;)

    Used JMP 2204 +boost + cab (dirt)
    Used Bassman head + cab (clean)
    A decent used LP clone of some sort with a great setup
    Three homemade cables and a self-built amp switcher
    Stings, strap & picks

    I think I could pull all that off for $5K if I found "the deal(s)".

    Traynor yba-3 head Two 4x12 cabinets(for completely stupid and unreasonable volume). find a good sounding tele and strat with alnico 5 pickups, an echoplex and maybe a chorus or flanger, maybe a couple good high end drive pedals too.
