I'd have to say either a string-winder, or a case.
Cables are very underrated, too.

string winders are really useful, but its not like u cant do without one. i'd say cables and picks, once i ran out of good picks and my cable broke and my mom didnt have enough time to drive me to GC

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

You are better off getting a new cable, unless it was really expensive!

straps. at every gig i've been to where there's a bunch of bands playing, there's always someone looking to borrow a strap.

that and cables.
#11
I'd say string clippers--my planet waves winder has a wirecutter on it already.

Also, tuners--tuning by ear is a very important skill, but it annoys the hell out of the crowd. Get a tuner.
#12
i'd say straps........no one really mentions em much but then again one can't couldn't perform without one.......imagine sitting on a chair on a stage while playing metal!

Straplockers also maybe. For electric guitars you don`t need a strign winder, you don`t have wind that much.

sure you do...makes changing strings 100 times easier and faster

the planet waves multi tool is awesome...just bought mine and made changing strings a breeze

A good cable.
I've been cheaping out on cables ever since I started playing electric, but I finally picked up a dimarzio today and it gives my tone a bit more punch and life. It's built really well too.


and straps, it's hard to play live without a strap.

i spent a couple years re-stringing completely by hand and after getting a peg winder i was like ' holy sh*T!!! it's sooo much easier!'

i'd say cable and strap for sure.

Guitar stand and case. Try gigging without a stand. Also, a simple rag for wiping down guitar after use (helps strings and finish last longer.

Probably the cable... or a stand. It's damn hard playing a gig without a stand, and dangerous, too.
