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


That would give me £21 pounds left for Guitar polish, Guitar cable and guitar picks.
A Canon EF 16-35 f/2.8L
I play guitar like a pirate with two hooks....so...uh...just call me Meathook! Yar!
I'd buy £1000s worth of guitar strings and attack people with them!

Tokai ALS48 Love Rock Les Paul Standard
Marshall DSL-50 Head

Keep my Vox Valvetronix AD50VT
