Thought that title would grab attention.
Anyways, nothing urgent but here are a couple things I was considering to do with money I will eventually have.
Before you choose which poll, consider this:
-I'm moving to the US (Uni) in just under 3 years (in the UK now)
-I get 50£ a month (for school lunch, clothes etc which I can actually not spend and so save up)
-I now currently have 300£ in my bank account.
-PRS SE Custom is what I've had in mind for a while but not sure. Something in that price range is what Im aiming for as a second guitar
-And Ive been playing since...November but got my RG321 at Xmas (note: making rapid progress, starting to improvise slow solos etc)
So here we go:

Oranges are actually a revolution though - they're the next step from Rectos IMO.

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

If you were really enterprising you would buy as much euro gear as possible while you're there, Marshall, Orange, Engl, and bring it over here to sell for a profit. Then buy a bunch of Mesa gear to take back to the UK and sell for a profit.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

If you want better tone, buy a new amp, as 90% of your tone comes from the amp. If your guitar doesn't play well, upgrade it. 3 years is a long time to wait.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.
I'm a retired Supermod off to the greener pastures of the real world.

The tone is not something Im worrying about just yet, getting familiar with the instrument is what Im looking for first and although I like how it is possible to play really fast on teh fast Wizard II neck, I find I prefer the feel of a fatter neck, one og a strat for example or a gibso. That was the problem of bying on a budget I guess, not having the right amount of choice.
