Mostly just stuff to fix up my Super Six Reverb. I already bought tube sockets so I can get that out of the way, it has old US tubes in the preamp so I'll leave those alone for now but the power tubes are Sovtek so they need to go.

I'd like to buy a convert kit for all these 6GB6 tubes I have, a bunch of RCAs unopened that would sound glorious in the Fender.

I'd like to pick up a decent six string acoustic as well
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Getting a new tube amp
-Orange Micro terror head&cab (i know its 20watt i'm currently living in a apartment and i kinda care about my roommate
-New guitar(Schecter for sure)
-Build a new pedal board and sell my old muti
-Boss DS-1
-Maxon OD808
-MXR Carbon copy
-VOX wah
-Pedaltank Power supply
And after this i'm officially poor

A new amp. No, seriously! My FLMS stocks both Orange and Supro, so one of those is the most likely. But I have Mesas, Tone Kings, Dr. Z and Divided By Thirteens on my online watch lists...

I'm aiming to get a few used guitars cheap, like a Godin Belmont, maybe a G&L Fallout Tribute. There are a couple of Fret-Kings and Reverends I've scoped out, each under $600. I almost snagged a Reverend RT today, but I screwed up my auction bid.

Pedals...my priorities change every time I look at my list. I really need to get a looper, though, and I'm seriously considering a Pigtronix for the job. An Empress Heavy, blackout Effectors Cadavernous Pandimensional and Catalinbread EchoRec are high on the list.

Ibanez (Probably) 12 string acoustic.
2 weeks in Spain or Italy.
New car for my lovely lady.
My gastronomic rapacity knows no satiety.
#11
A fanned fret Kiesel Aries with a buckeye burl top & rosewood neck OR a Kiesel Vader in racing orange

If I could find one with a really nice top, I'd love to get my hands on a JP6 with the koa top but those are pricey as hell

A Carl Martin Octa-Switch or a similar pedal switcher

A new powered pedal rack

EZ Drummer or some sort of equivalent. Need to do some research before I decide

I've also been toying with the idea of picking up bass, I have no idea what kind of bass I would get but probably one that isn't too pricey considering I want to get myself a nice new guitar.
Gibson LP Studio
Taylor 518E
Washburn WD15SCE acoustic electric

Something with P90's
Fancying a new Strat with slightly more powerful pups(maybe fat fifties)
Looper
New cables
New strings
Possibly a new amp

I have an Octa-Switch. They are intuitive and well made. I want another.

They have changed the design, though. The new ones are more compact.

Yeah I saw that they have an MK3 version now, I'm thinking of getting that one since it's the same price as the MK2.

A used Ibanez S, a starter bass rig. I have tons of other things on my wishlist but that's for 2017, or '18.
#16
I just want to get another band going so I can actually use the gear I own

But I'd like to get another POD or M9. I'm leaning towards the POD because I can use it for FX only and I have an FBV shortboard lying around.

Building a 5f1 is up there, probably a kit from Triode, USA.

Some old Japanese guitar. I would like to say a Yamaha SG/SL, or Ibanez Rocket Roll or something, but it will probably end up being whatever I can find on the Twin Cities craigslist.

Also, I don't have reverb. Or tremolo. Or chorus. Mostly because I don't give many shits. What I DO need is a sweet envelop filter. I feel a Q-Tron+ would keep me entertained forever.

Last but not least, more fuzz is always welcome.

OH AND A BADASS VOODOO PEDAL POWER!

At this point most of my goals are to consolidate down the gear I don't use to free up some space:

Randall RG100SC 212 Combo
Peavey 5150 212 Combo

This would leave me with just the Mesa Roadster and a Vypyr 30.

Seriously considering selling the Kelly as well as I feel myself fighting the bridge and neck position when playing it. If i sell this I open the door up for a super strat with a Floyd - Jackson Soloist, LTD M1001, or ESP E-II M-II or Ibanez Prestige.

Swapping the Chrome JB out of my E-II Eclipse for a Chrome Distortion.

The main goal is to just play more!!!!
Guitars:
Jackson Kelly KE3 - MIJ (Distortion/Jazz)
Jackson DKMGT Dinky (EMG 81/85)
ESP E-II Eclipse Custom (JB/'59)
ESP LTD EC-1001FR (EMG 81/60)
Fender MIM Strat

Amps:
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster 212
Laney IronHeart IRT-Studio
Peavey Vypyr 30
Peavey ReValver Amp Sims
TOOOO many T.C. Electronic Pedals. . .
#19
Depends what is released at NAMM to some extent.

Wouldn't mind replacing my Fender Mustang I with a Peavey Vypyr VIP 1.
Replace my fixed bridge Warrior with a trem Warrior.
Replace my Warlock with some JR V.
Maybe order a custom Carvin Ultra V.
#20
My goals are to Reduce and Refine.
I'm paying a lot of storage for gear I don't and won't use.
I'm playing caretaker for gear that's grown too valuable to use.
I've got multiples (and multiples of multiples) that are gathering dust.

If I can turn some of this junk into a Trussart Steelphonic, for example, I'll be happy.
And I'll be stomping around NAMM soon to see what's worth putting on the list.
Now and then you can get some pretty fancy NAMM guitars at good prices (Nik Huber usually sells out his stock on the first day).
#21
Getting a new bass.
Getting a 212 v30 cabinet.
Getting whatever I find on ebay that's a stupid deal that I can make a lot of money on.

I am pretty happy with what I have. Albeit it is not much. I just want to get better at playing this year.

I don't really need a chassis though; I planned on using a Road Runner lunchbox (the cartoon).

well it's been 2 years since i've bought any new gear so i'm thinking i may be due. had a pretty big turnover in 2013 though. i do want a univibe pedal so that may be the one goal for the year. set on guitars and can't complain about amps either (well i can always complain and wish but have to be realistic)
#29
My gear goals for 2016 are:

-Don't buy any new guitars or amps
-Fix the ass backwards pickup wiring on my SG (it was like that when I got it!)
-Rewire one of my dual humbucker guitars for '50s style wiring
-Finish building the distortion pedal I'm working on
-Get my Vox AC30 serviced/repaired
-Sort out my pedalboard - better power supply, cables etc.

That's about it, really.

I mean, I have GAS for a tweed Fender style amp, a Les Paul Junior and a Rickenbacker 660/12, but those can all wait.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#30
I feel kind of done, gear wise. I have too many guitars and couldn't possibly find a niche where I don't have anything that will do musically. That said, I'd like to:

1. Install pickups I already have bought in one of my Strats
2. Buy an acoustic with pickup OR get pickup solution for my current acoustic.

Im gonna get a seven string and put a jazz in the neck and a black winter in the bridge, and I'm gonna have a tune up done to my marshall-its a valvestate 100 watt- and sell it so I can get a small tube combo because I am not gonna be in a band or anything where I need that loud of an amp anymore and I am tired of lugging that cab and head around. I may switch my schecter(six string) back to passive pickups, but I'm not sure yet. I'm pretty happy pedal wise but if i see a deal on a nice chorus or mxr eq pedal I'll probably nab it.I kinda want a bass but I know I'm not gonna buy one this year haha

A Fender Tele with a vintage trem, or a Tele style guitar with Bigsby?

I ask because I have seen some fantastic examples of the latter. Someone had one made of rosewood with a red pickguard. Looked like a milk chocolate cherry bonbon made into a telecaster.

Specifically a '62 Reissue with a Bigsby. I appreciate that there's a world of great stuff out there, but I'm all about the vintage(-style) Fender mojo.

I'd still love to see that, though!

I think Ippon posted a picture of it once. I'm going to see if I can find it.

Found it- apparently not rosewood, but walnut; not a Bigsby, but a FR; still a milk chocolate cherry bonbon shaped into a telecaster:

Pretty conservative:

Schecter Omen 6 and strings for it as I'll be buying used (unless some amazing sale takes place).
Guitar/Bass:
Schecter: Damien 6/Stilletto Extreme 5, Squier: Bullet HSS*, Washburn RX10*/WG-587, Agile Septor 727
*mods

Amps/FX
Peavey: Vypyr 30/Max 112 (200W), ISP: Decimator

First and foremost its high time for me to purchase the footswitch for my Mesa Roadster 2x12 combo that I picked up new on clearance at GC 2years ago and the idiots could not find the footswitch (alhough for $1100 new with full warranty I wasn't too mad) Footswitch and 5 pin cable $165 factory direct from Mesa

Second: Edge pro tremolo to replace the Edge3 on my Ibanez Xiphos

Sustainer/compressor (haven't researched which brand/model yet)
Digital delay (mine finally died)
Set of passive pickups to replace the EMGHZs on my Jackson DXMG

Another tail piece guitar nothing specific just whatever used beauty I come across.

Probably won't get all of it but the top four are a must.
