    Other than a new 1x12 cabinet I am having built right now, I am quite happy with everything I have and can't think of anything else I would want. I may get an FRFR for my Kemper but so far, I haven't found anything that sounds good and is the size I like.

    I bought my '17 Tribute, a used Squier P-Bass, a used Squier VM Mustang and fourteen pedals in 2017. I'd like an '18 LP Classic gold top and swap in mini-hums, but that isn't gonna happen this year unless I sell my other LPs to pay for it. I'm done selling what I have to chase what I don't have.

    I will be taking delivery of my new Peavey Classic 20 Mini Head tomorrow, if Canada Post tracking can be believed. So all I really want in the next few months is a 1x12, 25-50W 16 ohm cab that can be used with the Peavey or my Class 5.

    Sheer Brilliance :applause:

    I almost always regret selling, and frequently end up repurchasing what I sold to finance something else :rofl:

    Please make sure to give us a New Amp Day for your Peavey

    I'm also selling stuff off this year, I have far too much gear that I don't use regularly enough, it should be in the hands of those that will use it.

    As for gear purchases?
    Not too much I can think of.
    My semi-hollow GAS and my bass GAS have finally been fulfilled, so I think I'm actually pretty much set for the year.

    I had some great guitars when I was young, but traded or sold them. I like my small collection; I've got the Fender single coil sound covered, and Gibson is represented by two different P-90 types and one set of 490s :jam:

    Definitely a NAD post coming up! :dude:

    In keeping with my New Years goal, purge.
    I’ve had an absolutely fantastic three years buying, selling and trying many things I’d never had.
    Great education. Great fun.
    I’m now at the point where I don’t want a collection. I just want to stick with a couple of my main players.

    Unless a pile of money magically appears, I don't have any real plans other than upkeep stuff. I'm toying with the idea of putting gold speed knobs on my wine red Standard. I like their functionality better than the witch hats that are on it.

    I inherited a Hercules stand today, so yay me.

    /no... the witch hats will not be going up for sale.

    I did some math and the last 14 months I spent around $10,000 in gear. I sold some stuff first, and I sold off quite a bit since, but that’s nuts.

    I bought a bunch of stuff last year claiming I don’t need anything, but that’s because there were just so many great deals. When I sold off the stuff I realized it wasn’t worth it. Almost every sale was just horrible, but I got it done.

    But yeah, I’m set. My goal is to spend nothing on new gear this year.

    I think this is going to be the year that I finally get a Martin. I'm still considering which model but I'm strongly leaning 000-18. I love the body style and the spruce / mahogany combo is killer.

    Other than that, I'm hoping to finally get my Fender '63 VibroVerb RI re-tubed and tuned up. I'll probably end up tweaking my ever changing pedalboard as well.

    If I can stay off the smokes for 6 months, I'm going to buy an old tweed champ. Putting my daily tobacco savings in a jar. $90 in there so far.

    I have plenty. I would like to get a resonator maybe. But I’m happy with what I have on the whole. Hell, I have more guitars than I play already, so unless something breaks I’m not putting more money into gear. Loving playing the guitar, I’m just not feeling the need for new stuff.

    A mlp member suggested spending cigarette money on gear. Gas may be my only sickness powerful enough to stop me from smoking.
