Lets says you were given £1000/$1500 to buy gear and you had no gear what gear would you buy?

I would buy:
Epiphone Les paul Custom - £419
Vox VT100 - £350
Jim Dunlop Zakk Wah - £130
Boss MT-2 - £80

=£979

That would give me £21 pounds left for Guitar polish, Guitar cable and guitar picks.

I'd buy a bitchin' head.


EDIT: I didn't read the part where you said "You had no gear."
Gear:
-Gibson Les Paul Studio Cherry Sunburst w/ Alnico Pro II
-1960 Yamaha Orange Sticker Acoustic
-Marshall JCM2000 DSL 401
-Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
-Blackstar HT-5RH

yeah, but he said you have no gear, so youd have that bitchin head with no guitar or speaker or anything.

but yeah, I would go with the head, assuming I already have gear.

if not, I dont know, quite a few options, but definately a good combo with good gain so I wouldnt have to buy a pedal, and a guitar, and Id be set.

Probably an ENGL fireball 100 head... then sell my traynor and ibanez to get a decent cab.

A MIM strat $500
A Vox AC4TV head $200
A fender hot rod deluxe cab $360
A Electro-Harmonix OD $90
Cables, strings, and stand $70

All that would be $1,200 for a nice bed room rig.

Fender Highway One Strat ($700)
Used 70's Blackface Fender Super Twin (local CL, $500)

Pounds are GBP, right? So 1,500 pounds equal 2,541 USD. In this case I would buy a Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline (Like I already have) And I'd add a Stetsbar T Style tremolo to it and some Steinberger tuners, That would cost $650 right there. Then I would buy an Orange amp of some sort and a Fender Rumble 15 Bass amp. Oh, And extra strings and picks.
Always tin your strings.

Used Peavey JSX combo - $800
Used Carvin DC model - $600
MXR Carbon Copy - $100

I'd then somehow make an instrument cable and picks materialize out of thin air.Not an amazing guitar god setup,but this rig would easily get the job done for me.

Used Fulltone OCD $100

I'd probably a Fender Strat, any model - a Strat is a solid all rounder that works in every situation and always sounds good. A real workhorse that won't mind a beating.
So, that's around £350.

The leave £500 spare.
Probably a Laney VC30, or maybe a used Marshall DSL or a used ENGL Thunder.

Any spare cash would go to: New pups [if needed], and a Big Muff.

If you had no gear at all you would use your entire budget on pedals?

May I ask why?

But in this scenario you have no gear at all.You're building your whole rig from the bottom up with the budget,so you'd be the guy with a nice guitar and some fancy pedals and no magic sound box to play them through .
