Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

4 SGs, 2 standards one ebony one natural burst, a vintage special reissue, like Pete's and a '61 reissue as well as a LP Goldtop, and a Tobacco Burst.


My actual dream guitar. I'd love to own one, this may be a LP forum but I'm an SG man until the very end.

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

If I got 10M first I'd build my parish a bigger church.

then pay off bills.
Buy a Jeep Rubicon
And instead of a guitar room, I'd build a jam room with:

Adequate P.A. (all mackie stuff)
Adequate recording equipment
All the guitars I already own.
A Ludwig "Ringo: drumset
An adequate bass rig
Some kind of Marshall tube stack or maybe some Budda, Bogner, or Hughes and Kettner combo amps.
and I'll search for the ultimate Les Paul Junior, Desert Burst standard, and R9

Ok, here's my virtual picture















Like it?? I'd probably give a million to my church, put whatever else is needed for college, and then use whatever's left for a lp custom, sg custom, strat, R9, a bunch of pedals and some big tube amp. and whatever's left i'll just save untill i need a house. No "room" per se just a bunch of guitars and stuff.

The Bloomfield 'burst, the Peter Green 'burst, the Duane Allman goldtop that's on the cover of VG, and the Clapton "Fool" SG.

I'd pay off my bills, pick up a 56 and a 57 GT, a P90 black beauty, a Burst with a fat neck, and a couple of Juniors. All vintage, of course!

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

Sometimes a lot of money can complicate your life. I really don't know if I would want the headaches. But if I did win it, I would give half to my Mom, give a million each to my Uncles (good guys) and then bank the rest. With the economy going south I would expect interest rates to rise eventually and I would live off the interest.

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

The only guitar room I would even be remotely interested in would be the open air guitar room as I lay in my hammock slung between two palm trees on the remote beach front property I purchased with lottery winnings!
Stop playing long enough to jump in my boat and catch something for lunch and dinner!

I really wouldn't add much to my guitar collection other than maybe a REAL Burst! I'm more than happy with what I already have!

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

1 Gibson Les Paul Custom - Ebony
1 Gibson Les Paul Custom - Alpine White
1 Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom - Ebony ( Signed by Tomo Milicevic )
I would want a McSwain Custom Guitar Replica of "Pythagoras"
Jared Leto's Custom Guitar
And I would buy my best friend some guitars too
( He is a bassist )
1 Gibson Thunderbird Gothic
1 Schecter 004 ( Dale Stewart )

Then I would most likely donate most of it

But thank you for putting that fantasy in my head

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

I'd probably donate 500,000-1,000,000 of it to some charities then I'd buy myself a nice secluded house somewhere with a great view that has a sound-proofed studio. after that I'd buy various Les Pauls, SGs, ESs and some Strats along with a couple marshall stacks. When I got all that I would buy a nice drumset and some nice recording stuff. I'd give some to my parents, maybe a little to my brother, save enough for future kids to go to college and maybe invest/save the rest.

I'd have a full blown recording studio at my beck and call, with a couple of good engineers on retainer. When I'm not in it, I'd rent it out.

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

After seeing my answer, i have come to the conclusion that everything that I put in my last post would not equal 10 million bucks (I don't want an 8 million dollar house). In addition to this, I will give a milli (WEEZY! ) to my parents and the rest could go to idk 10+ villages in Africa(not sure how much $ is needed per village)

If you did that, Gibson would probably have enough money to lower the prices again! You would be an international hero!

Re: If you won $10m on the lottery...

I had a boatload of cash/ assets left to me from my dad.better than the lottery
i paid off my house, [275k,] put money in trust funds for my 5 kids @ 5 grandchildren [4.5 mil], bought some new tools for my business,[45k], gave 30% to charity,
kept 100k for retirement[no touchy till i'm 58], paid off my best friends medical bills, 175k.
the rest went into a trust to keep up the damn house he left me,that i can't sell,and can't stand living in that sucks up 3k per month just to keep it lit up and the grass mowed
didn't spend 1 dime on guitars, come to think of it , i must be nuts.
