    ..and could build the guitar room of your choice.

    What would go in it?

    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.

    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??:D 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.:thumb: 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!

    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.

    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! :thumb:

    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!:thumb:

    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

    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.
