    Helix... I play plugged into PA more often than not, so being able to run a wet/dry setup, or dual amps (Vox and Marshall, etc)......

    I mean, I think you can never have too many guitars, but I don't have opportunity to play them all, so they're not 'set on' in the same way.

    Except for getting a Tone Master in the near future and figuring out finally the pickups in my 5420, I'm all set. That one piece of gear though that will always be, is my Blues Cube Hot. 'My Tone' is buried in that thing. Of all the amps I use and borrow and share, that BCH is just ME!

    I drank some of @tartanphantom stateline moonshine during a fullmoon, out in a hollar in Joeltown Tennessee next to a roaring bonfire w Duane Eddy, while branding planks w a Gretsch cattle brand, then recorded my Christmas EP the rest of that week in nashville.
    One of the greatest times of my life... next week I ended up in the ER for emergency gallbladder surgery. So I could have left the moonshine out that situation in hindsight.
    ..but Duane Eddy performs w my atomic brain now. Kinda worth it? I think so. :)

    Everytime I see a new piece, I tell myself, "Learn to play what you have first"! I did see a 66 Dannelectro (ALA Ventures), at my local shop. I may play it Thursday after my lesson. $495 is not too bad. I really hope i don't like it!

    Now you know good and well that the moonshine had nothing to do with gallbladder anything. Don't blame pure corn whisky for your previous dietary trespasses... it doesn't touch your gallbladder, but it can play hell on your liver!;):p

    Yeah, a brilliant little amp that BCH. I feel exactly the same about mine.

    I still obsess about gear all of the time, but these three pieces do everything I need.

    There's a lot of guitars, amps, & pedals in my stash that do exactly what I need/want them to do for me. Unfortunately/fortunately that doesn't seem to stop me from checking out other gear in the same general spaces.

    A few that spring to the top of my mind that come the closest:
    The CDG Penguin is just about everything I could want in a Filtertron & Bigsby equipped Jet/Penguin. I'd still like a nice DeArmond equipped one.

    My Mystery Brains are just about perfect as a slap delay & preamp for ~95% of all my guitars & amps. That being said, I still have every intention of hanging onto & continuing to use other options for delay & preamps as many of them are equally as cool to me, just different...

    My Ampeg PF50T/PF210/PF115 stack is probably the closest piece of gear to what I think you're looking for, I don't really even think about needing/wanting other bass amps (aside from when it's time to move it ;) ), it's just pretty much everything I'm looking for for that function.
