How much is your rig worth

So after a discussion about guitars and amps with a mate last night, i sat down and roughly worked out how much it would cost to buy my setup brand new out of a shop/online.

after 20 or so mins i came up with a rough figure of 7000. To me this doesn't seem like a lot for the average set up.

i have become increasingly curious as to how much other people have spent on their rigs. What better place to ask than here? right?

Rules:
All guitars, amps and effects etc. are to be priced at market value

All custom built equipment are the cost of parts if you built them yourself, or what you paid for it if someone else did it.

Only the current valves in your amps can be counted. not old/unused ones.

Everyone has spent most of the cost of their rig on picks and strings so dont include those.

If you can post a list or pics of your rig.


GO!!


ps. sorry if this has been done before.

Jcm200DSL100- $600
Crate Gt412sl- None on ebay or craiglist so, $200
Mxr Classic OD- 30 bucks new so 15?
Dunlop Crybaby with fasel- 50 bucks
JJ El34 and 12ax7- 25 bucks
Epiphone les paul standard with gibson pups-300 bucks if im lucky
20 bucks in cords.

so around $1200 probably. Though Im no longer in a band or anything. So Im content with this.

All this stuff in total I paid just under $2000 for. Im very tired, and thought you were asking used prices. Doh!

I'm gonna do what I paid, which usually isn't retail...

Classic Player 60s Model Strat - ~$300
Blues Junior w/ upgraded speaker and tubes - ~$400
Proco Rat - $50
Dist+ - ~$50
Muff - ~$50
Dano TOD V1 - Traded for it but we can say ~$50
Small Clone - $90
DD-3 - $70
Memory Boy - $120
A/B - ~$30
Bypass Looper - ~$30

Total: $1240

I'm surprised its that high to be honest. I'd like to sell all my pedals, because I don't use them anymore. If and when I do I'll have just about the best sounding $700 you can find.



Don't have the white strat anymore.

Somewhere in the $6,000 mark.

That's no where near what I've spent on past gear and accessories though.

I only count what I gig with as my rig. So:

EVH Wolfgang Special = 900
Fender Hot Rod De Ville 410 = 860
BOSS ME-50 = 150-ish
BC Rich Mockingbird Special = 385
Jackson Dinky w/ Live Wire pups = 560-ish
Ibanez EW20LASE-NT LH = 295

It adds up to just over 4000.

Crate CR-212-$150
B.C.Rich warbeast w/case- $500
DOD FX-69- $40
Home-made switch box- $30
Ibanez PR-1660 w/case - $800
Ibanez GT10DXR combo - $50

My rig is only worth $1570, and if it weren't for my dad's stuff it'd only be worth like $680

Damn, I just realized that the only part of my rig worth anything was inherited from my dad. The warbeast was a christmas present. I bought the crate myself. I made the switch box. The pedal the GT10 and the pr1660 were all my dads.

My gigging set:
VGS Screech Select 300
Ibanez S670 499
(pickups + installation to follow: 270)
Peavey Valveking + Celestion Vintage 30 700
JJ 6l6s + Tung Sol 12AX7s: 70

Modtone Vintage wah: 80
Cool DD20 delay: 100
Digitech Bad Monkey OD: 48

So all in all, current total: 1797
Future total: 2067

Prices ending in 0 are an approximation, the rest I have looked up / still remember off the top of my head.

Also, I do have a Peavey Vypyr but since it's not part of my gig setup, it's not included in the pricing.
