So, it's coming up to my 18th birthday soon and my parents/family are asking what I want. All I could really think of was a car, but without a job I'd have no way to pay for fuel, insurance, etc and I live pretty close to public transport.
Any idea's for a good present? Price limit is around $1000AU (plus a bit more if I put some of my money in).

Yeah, another Aussie! Ive been to a few 18ths, id just say parents give you the money and you buy a decent guitar and get some Jack Daniels and Jim Beam and just get off your face.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Yeah but with a decent guitar, say the guitars 800 dollars, get it second hand thats a 1600+ Aus dollar guitar, that leaves 200 for maybe 5 bottles of 700 ml Jim Beam.

Dude I would ask for a thousand bux... Go out, see some over 18s gigs, whatever. $1000 will go a long way. Fuck, I wish i was 18. Are you still in school? Where in Aus are you from?

I always have a big "problem" with deciding what I want for my birthday and such, like I've already began what to think what I want for my birthday, I'm 17 this summer and if I don't start to think right now. I'll never figure it out.. Well, except for a new amp

I did want a new guitar, but my parents won't buy me one. I need to get my 4x12 finished first (I think I should turn it into two 2x12's though, I might have to think a bit about that). There's no point in having a new guitar/effects if I can't listen to it =)
Parents aren't big on giving money or alcohol, I've already asked....repeatedly
I'm thinking I should ask for a super toolkit + soldering stuff, etc so I can get started on building amps/pedals. That's an idea that might work...

You say a car is too much on insurance and fuel?
