What would you do if you had.......
« on: January 31, 2013, 11:05:54 am »

A $1000 windfall burning a hole in your pocket to spend on yourself.
 
If you're a guitar player would you spend it on guitar stuff, or sound equipment. And what would you buy?

Apparently Behringer X32s are all the rage.  Wait a month and the X13 will be out for $999, I expect.

+1 

I would rather let it sit and earn me a little and get something nicer when I save some more.

Gold...
With gold prices sitting at near record highs, now is the time to sell, not buy.

Back to Bob, how about one of these bad boys?

It's one of the best guitar delays on the Earth, and you'd have about half of your scatch left over.

Buying a collectible guitar or amp, is not crazy and a more fun way to hedge against inflation. Some modest amount of gold is insurance against wild currency valuation swings.

If it really is a windfall I would basically blow it. Not justifications about future value here.

While I usually have a short list of things to buy, I would use a windfall to change my day to day routine. $1000 sounds about right for a long weekend getaway. Personally I would fly to Florida for a couple days of flyfishing.

Cut out the flight and $1000 can really go a long way. Get a nice hotel in the city. Spend the days in museums. Eat in nice restaurants. Go to shows at night.
