Gibson SG: $350 15 years ago
G&L Tribute Legacy: $500 last year
Soldano SLO: $3500 last year
Soldano 4x12 cab: $1100 last year
1/2 broken Art mixer: free
Computer: $1000 or so, but I already had it when I started using for music...

Hmmm...does the Ford Ranger I bought to cart my shit count as music gear?

I am a computer type programmer like person. I don't make a whole lot. The Soldano has not been completely paid for yet ;)

Money spent on music gear is money well spent...

This is my major purchases:

Edwards LP: 10 000 SEK = $1400
Acoustic Guitar: 2500 SEK = $350
Cort LP: 3000 SEK = $425
Stratocaster copy of unknown brand and origin: 900 SEK = $130
Peavey Bandit: 4000 or 5000 SEK (can't remember) = $570 - $700

As you can see instruments are a bit more expensive here in Sweden than in the states. The stratocaster I got as my first guitar is about as cheap as they come.

I'd like to get some money soon. I've got a lot of stuff I want to buy! :p

EDIT: oh yeah, and what I work with... Right now I work at a super market, gonna continue my studies soon tho. So I don't have the greatest income.

God, I'd hate to think! Bought my first Fender Stratocaster in 1978 and my first Marshall stack in 1979. Between then I've had about 30-odd guitars and 20 odd amps. It hurts to think about the cash spent chasing the tone monkey. :ball:
