Tell us what your ultimate rig would be. Im having trouble with mine when it comes to heads but its either the Randall RM 100, 6505+ or Triple Rectifier. For cabs I would take the Randall RS125XL upside down with a 15" speaker on top and two 12" speakers under it. Under that cab would be maybe that 4X10 Marshall cab that everyone drools over. That way I would get every range covered and it would be great. Of course that would only be for stuff without a PA. Id take the RS412XLT for my main cab for live use (if I ever get that good). I would have a massive graphic EQ in the rack for tweaking the sound just so, maybe the Mesa tube rackmount for some fun. Before the amp, Id have a Zoom G9.2TT for its fun features and effects. For guitar it would have to be an Ibanez RGA 321F with an Air Norton and Tone Zone for pickups. For a strap, I want one of those neat stretchy ones. That's about all I can think of for now.

fender telecaster

pedals:
RMC wizard wah

amps:

Gee...

Guitars:
Godin LG
Gibson SG standard
Gibson LP standard
Fender Strat
Gibson ES-335
Taylor 610CE

Amps:
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (or Mark IV... I don't know... this is a little out of my current price range ;))
2 Mesa 4x12 closed-back cabs
Peavey Classic 30 or an alternative small tube amp (so I don't get skewered by my neighbours...)

Pedals:
Digital Delay
Tuner

And maybe a simple bass rig... Fender P-bass w/ Ampeg amp.

That is actually the list of what I want... Just one of everything... lol.

I can't do this without getting terribly unrealistic, and depressed.

here's my ideal bass rig:
fender p-bass & jazz bass (inca silver w/ black pickguards and duncan basslines)

line 6 bass pod XT live

mesa boogie walkabout scout w/ yorkville 4x10 bass cab

it's basically ben kenney's bass rig with a yorkville bass cab, which i like more than ampegs.

I'd build my own...

A 4-1000 tube! In cathode bias Class A!

This tube was developed for radio transmitter service but would work fine for audio. It would put out maybe 900-1000 watts!

Plug an ES-135 into it and break a few apartment leases...

Personally I think my ultimate rig would have to be an MG series Marshall amp with a few Digitech's and an ESP Baritone with EMG 81's neck and bridge.

Guitars - My EBMM EVH guitar, and a couple of custom made jobs with the exact same neck as it.

Pedals - Geesh. Uh, a wah (probably a Budda), a boost (something with a little hair to add), and a Phaser (I like it with my lead tone)

Amp - Probably some kind of hand-wired, EL-34/KT-77 50 watter with a PPIMV through a 2x12 (or 4x12 if someone else is hauling it to gigs) with Greenbacks (Although I'm loving my Ceriatone 18 Watt TMB through my Avatar 2x12 with V30/H30. It sounds nice).

I think I'd like that enough.
