I searched for, a 'What would you buy with X moneyz' thread and did not find one. so I decided to make one.

The name of the game is simple.

What would you buy if you had a Maximum budget of £1500(2959) to Buy equipment for Home practice. This includes everything, Pedals, Amp heads, Cabs, Strings, Jacks, Guitars. Everything.

It's just to let people who use this part of the forum have a look at what people would do with the money.

Also, this is as if you had No Guitar Gear at all. It had all been burned down in a Arson attack by Aids Infected Wild men.

I'll post what I'd buy with that cash later.

Post away.

Mate, sorry, No need to kill the thread over some Obvious Points.

I never said it was a beginner who had the budget. Look closely before you start trying to compromise my thread.
simple a marshall DSL n a decent fixed bridged Ibanez or one with a whammy if you think u could cope. a nice Rg or a Sa would be good
Well.. I can't remember what the money amount was in USA money... but I would buy a **** load of Porno with it
Used LP Studio- $900
Used Jackson SL3- $750
Fender Deluxe Blackout Tele- $500
Used Mesa Rect-O Verb Combo- $800

Phew... had some trouble deciding between the Tele and a 2nd amp, but I think that'd set me up nicely.
Used Ibanez JS1000, Used JCM800 for distortion, Used Peavey Classic 30 for cleans, Used MXR 10-Band EQ, Used Ibanez TS-9, then the rest on a rediculously expensive wah.

Could live without an amp/effects for a while with such an amazing guitar.

Best bang for buck stuff in the UK I think

- Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier

Then I'd get an avatar 2x12 with blues - $753
Weber Mass attenuator for $225
with the remainder I'd get some effects.

edit - didn't read the post so this is what I'd get if I had nothing at all...

I'd put together a kickin' warmoth HSS strat type guitar for around $1000 or less
avatar cab for $332
Ceriatone amp for around a grand or less - not sure which
buy cables effects etc with the rest

Ibanez JEM7VWH *used, from like 2006?*
Marshall JCM800 + 1960AV Cab
Ultimate Attentuator, Zakk Wylde Overdrive, Ibanez Wheeping Demon, Delay Pedal of some sort.

That should cost THAT much over budget, if any...
Ibanez S5470.........................$1299 (guitar)
Peavey ValveKing 100 head.....$529 (head)
Marshall MG412A......................$279 (4x12)

this is all from musicans friend, and i left out some small stuff, like picks and straps, i can get that later, its not much
Marshall JVM Series JVM410H and 1960A or 1960B Half Stack-$2849

My Gear:
Jackson DK2M
PRS Paul Allender Sig

Fender Blues Jr.
Roland Micro Cube
Jackson rhoads rr5 - $1158
Peavey 6505 plus half stack - $1799.99
= $2958
+pick = $2959

I think that's pretty solid.
I'd probably buy a nice Marshall halfstack, probably the 2230kk head (that thing is BEASTLY), then put some celestion speakers in the cab... After that I'd probably be outta cash, then I suppose I'd just use the remainder to buy a cheap but decent guitar then save for a really nice one, like and ESP or RAN custom or something...

No amp at all with all that leftover cash? lol

Pfft, you don't need an amp when you're playing with an acoustic and plug into a PA.

And when PA is not available, you say "Fuck it," and play unplugged. Besides, you could buy some hookers for $1500
