  • 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

            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 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.
