    I had an extra $500 to buy gear with a few months ago. Went for a Line 6 POD HD500X. Love it!

    I'd put it toward a dream guitar--like a Ric, Duo Jet, Gibson J45, etc.--and then not feel as guilty for spending the dough.

    Since I have far more guitars, amps and gear in general than I need or deserve and since I consider Jack Daniels to be an essential part of my musical experience..........

    For $500 you can get a really nice used bass. Yamaha BB's under $500 are a dime a dozen.

    $450 is kind of a sweet spot for budget used guitars. There's an awful lot in that range that can be tweaked to play as well as just about anything. I have maybe a half a dozen guitars and basses in that range that I got just because I thought they were neat. Haven't regretted any of them. I've even given a few away just because they were good and it would help someone out who didn't have a decent instrument.

    But honestly, everybody needs a bass.

    Got all the guitar gear I need, or want. $500 to spend on vintage jazz LP's would be cool.

    Either a line6 HX stomp (I might be the tenth guy to answer this!), or I'd put it towards a J-45 or J-100. I'm not lacking anything though.
