  • tax return time: what did everyone buy?

    A little late, perhaps, but....

    So what sorts of musical gear did everyone run out and buy with their money back from the gov'ment?

    A few bucks went towards my Gibson Les Paul Jr Special. The rest bought our summer vacation.

      New brakes for the car, new exhaust for the truck, new lawn mower. Sucks being an adult sometimes. I just might be putting a bit away for a vintage drum kit though.

    Got a good sum of cash back but was warned that next year I won't be so lucky because my wife and i both work putting us a couple steps up on the bracket.  I paid a lot of bills and got some things for the kiddies and the wife as well as the house.  I had enough left over to pick up a Wampler Euphoria overdrive,  I am still deciding if it was worth it and if it would eventually take over the Barber's LTD's spot.  Not entirely jiving with it as of yet.

        About the only thing I'm getting gear-wise is a refinish for my peeling Hamer bass; the wife has offered to kick in some $$$ for it as a birthday present.

        Otherwise, the front porch and steps need replacement and so does the family car.

          Want to buy a custom thinline tele I played at Sam Ash earlier this week...but I'm actually going to be responsible and not buy it, even though it's at an attractive price.  This is going to be a bad year on household expenses; going to have to treat my house for termites, replace a couple of windows and a fence at a rental house, and just paid out about $1900 for plumbing repairs.

            Well I'm an independent contractor so I pay in. So nothing, for quite a while. Fortunately I'm in a thin the herd phase at this point. My 360-6 has turned out to be the perfect guitar for me, has been for a while. Have a half dozen or so more that I will not part with. And a handful that I plan to get rid of once the economic conditions are more favorable to sellers.

              I paid a little bit, but on April 16, I went out and snagged a mid-'70s Ampeg VT-40. It's amazing.

                I got nailed with taxes due to new job and relocation to another state (SC).

                Next year should be a nice return though.
                I love guitars!
