    Sennheiser MD 421 II.
    350 right now at sweetwater.
    Then maybe a backup bass combo used, low wattage...brewery and coffee house type gig use.

    Cool question.

    I’d probably get a refret to get medium jumbos on my fretless wonder 73 LPC.

    Intense day long lessons from a pro. Not those 1/2 hour things where I'm not even focussed or warmed up.

    Woodworking stuff. I just spent over $600 on vise hardware for my new workbench (leg and tail vises). $300 on a few extra clamps, and $1000 in hardwood.

    The guitar hobby's lookin' cheap...

    Just did that about a month or so ago. It was $40 over but picked up this 2011 Gibson Les Paul Special. Came with an upgraded TKL hard case and also upgraded Lollar P90s. The original gig bag was also in the box when it arrived as well...

    The three things I'm wanting are well over $500 and I really don't want much else.

    Maybe a nice, little PA? Yeah, that would do nicely.

    If I can't spend it on a guitar, amp or standard pedal....

    Maybe a fancy Red Monkey guitar strap.

    I'd get my old ST54 refretted this year instead of next.

    Don't need anything really, so it looks like a healthy supply of bacon to freeze.

    I’d grab a used classic vibe tele and Esquire it. And I’d have enough leftover to put towards a thicker replacement neck.

    Thanks for asking.

    I think I'd just park in on account at my local Mom & Pop music store, where I often to park my gig $$. I'm gonna buy a delay pedal, but am still sorting it out. If I join a band or music project I might get a digital piano, and $500 would come in handy.
