What would you buy if you had $1500 to spend on gear for a gig and you had to use that gear alone? Right out the price of each item. Don't woryy about cables, tuners, taxes etc, just guitars, amps, pedals. Also, use retail prices.

I would get

- Ibanez s420 - 500
- DiMarzio DP227 LiquiFire - 75.95
- DiMarzio DP228 Crunch Lab - 79.95
- Peavey 6505 112 - 599.99
- Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie - 116.99
- Boss DD-3 Digital Delay - 109
Total - $1481.88
I play prog.

Interesting...

I'll use rough prices in UK pounds though.

Cornford Roadhouse 30 combo - £700
Godin Progression - £700
BYOC Overdrive 2 - £60
EHX Nano Clone - £40

I'm pretty sure that's all I'd need, well depending on what the gig was, I play Blues, Fusion, Rock, all sorts, but mainly those sorta things. Though I don't use many effects or anything else on my tone, so I think I could live with that set-up not only for one gig, but probably for most gigs!

1500 ain't much, i got 10x that amount in gear, and my gigging amp alone is worth more than that


Same here, my amp head cost £1700 .........
