What would you buy if you had $500.00 to burn?

Hey everyone,
I'm sure this has been posted before but as everyone's wants and desires change, I thought I'd get it going again: What would you purchase (limited to anything six string related) if you had 500 bucks, maybe +/- a hundred dollars?

So I guess I should start:

Setting up my RG 2550 with a sustaniac, Breed and probably Blue velvet.

or

Buying a PODXT live

or

buying a Firepod

okay Go...

I can't think of anything that I actually want right now that could be had for $500. I've got just about all of the cheap stuff I want.

btangel, you do realize that by answering the post, you're not really spending any money...

maybe I should have put it this way; if you won a 500 dollar gift certificate to an online guitar store, and the certificate could only be used by you, could not be exchanged for food stamps or sex and could not be sold on evil bay...then what would you get?

And if someone posts, "buy a 500 guitar and then sell it" I'm gonna put your name on my hit list.

If it was only for $500, and could only be used by me, then I'd raffle it off at a gig in order to raise money for an upcoming West Coast tour. Then, I'd have the winner go to said online guitar store, choose what they wanted, and I'd order it for them

Sennheiser MD421. Maybe a cheap ribbon mic. OKKO Diablo overdrive pedal. Rebox for an amp head.

Assuming I'm only supposed to answer with a musical gear related response - I'd have to say more pedals.

I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.
I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money.
