  • I'm about to get some monies... What to do w/ it?

    I got a new job which I start in a month. My old job will give me a check for the vacation time I've not used. Said check should be about $1,200 USD. Teh wife gave me permission to do whatever the hell I want w/ it. I figure I'll put it away and save it towards something awesome. As the poll indicates, here are the thoughts I'm having:

    1. New computer dedicated for recording
    2. A high quality acoustic guitar
    3. A second amp - like a Matchless or Dr. Z
    4. An Axe FX
    5. A really cool Looper pedal

    None of these above. Buy pedals from me cause I want your monies...
    Always without desire we must be found
    If its deep mystery we would sound
    But if desire within us be
    Its outer fringe is all that We shall see

            If you don't own a decent acoustic, get one, that's more important than anything else on there.

                Is that $1200 check reflect consideration of taxes? If not, put some money aside for your tax bill. With the rest I'd probably get a nice acoustic. There have been some really nice Breedlove models I've played for about $1k.

                  I'd advise a SAL buffer.....

                  .........would I ****************! Home recording comp/set up would be good I think.

                      acoustic is the most fun on that list

                          I'd take a Martin 00016GT (my personal favorite martin. I play it everytime I got the guitar store.

                          But yea, I'd say acoustic. Recording computer is a close second.
