So, my friend's only remaining grandmother died about a year ago and left him 30 grand, even though he barely knew her and talked to her once or twice in his life.

At the age of 19, (well, 18 when he inherited the money) he's using it all for college, mainly because his parents obviously wouldn't want him going around blowing the cash on useless things. (atlhough, he did buy a 1981 malibu classic station wagon with flames on it for 1000, and spent another 1000 fixing it up, but still) and also because....hey, if college is free for you, DO IT. but anyways...

What would you do tomorrow if you woke up to a phone call saying you were going to receive 30,000? Because that's exactly what happened to him.

I'm gonna go ahead and say i would probably use it for college too, but if that wasn't an issue, i have to say i would get an awesome drumset, the exact guitar equipment i want, some home recording equipment, and the rest would pay for bills.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

I'd buy the vintage Rickenbacker in the guitar shop up the street, and use the rest for college.

Something similar happened to me. I inherited $15,000 from my grandfather. I put $10,000 away for college. I bought a macbook and a 6505+ head and Peavey cab and a new guitar.

Well I'm almost out of college, so I'd buy a car.

New guitar, new bass, new amp, new bass amp, and the rest is a mystery. Seeing as my parents are paying for my college, aren't I special.

Since college is free in soviet Denmark, I'd probably blow hald on gear and save the other half für ein rainy dag.

Use it for all my university expenses, but then I'd still be left with like 20 grand, so I'd prob buy a two door Jeep Wrangler.
#12
<$3000 on stuff, the rest i'd put towards college and savings to help with rent, etc

I'd put a couple thousand aside for random ****. then I'd buy an early 70's muscle car, and fix it up, then several guitars, a bass, new amps. also I'd buy a ton of weed

EDIT: my college is already paid for

I'd spend it on hookers and drugs and die in a tragic FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFM orgy.

I'd buy some pedals and other random guitar stuff: picks, strings etc., a bass and amp, a new t.v., a new camera, and a new computer. Then I would save the rest for college.

New amp then put the rest toward college.

Buy a car and throw the rest in the bank. Might be tempted to buy a new guitar and all and probably would :P
I inherited $1000 from my grandma a few years back but my parents only let me spend $100 so the rest is chillin in my bank. Don't remember what I spent it on though.
#24
First, I'd make sure my mom can not touch ANY of it. Then, I'd buy myself a Stingray HH 5-String, a better amp, probably another bass, recording equipment, probably a PA, a pedal..... then, whatever is left, I'd put into the bank...
#25
Holy crap. Think of how many packs of macaroni and cheese you can get for 30 grand. Dude, I wish I had a rich grandma.

Scholarships + Federal Aid. The money totals up to more than my tuition is, so the college has to give me the money at the end of each semster; roughly over a grand each time.

I'd spend 5000 on whatever I wanted ( drugs, music equipment ) and keep the remaining for a car.

Ah okay, that makes sense.
#32
Hmm.......

I'd get a lotta gear. Namely a Caparison TaT II, a Jackson SL-1 Soloist, an ESP Edwards E-CY-165CTM, a 6505+ half stack, and I'd get myself on the Blackmachine waiting list.

I'm kind of a greedy ****er. I may get my friend her car, though.
#33
Well, I'd say college, but how much of it I actually use depends on scholarships and the like (good grades in GA = hey kid, wanna go to college? ). I'd want to get a guitar/amp, of course, but I'd really want to put it towards something else useful.

$20 000 in bank for university

Other half i would spend $2000 on a new guitar (probably a telecaster), $6000 on a trip im taking next year (to Italy with my school for a month), $500 on a cab for my amp, $500 worth of cymbals (so like two), $1000 on a new desktop computer
#35
Save half of it, and give the rest to charity (What charity I'm not really sure) because I'm just that nice of a guy.
#36
probably long term CD's in the bank. then the money can make some more money. i dont really need it now anyway.

I have no opinion on this matter.

i like the idea of paying for someone else's tuition. since me and my friends are all going to community college where a semester is only about 1500, i would spot them for like a semester maybe, i mean, if they're going through a tough time paying for it like i am now.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.
