1924 Gibson K5 Mandocello retrofitted with electronics

The only thing that I wish I really had was that Tourte bow ($90,000) that I played at New Year's.

That bow was vastly superior than either my Sartory or Morizot, and it would've helped me far more than the Fritz Kreisler's Strad I was playing on (a good solid violin).

I also wouldn't have minded having that "Gabrielli" violin (IV ~12) at the Tarisio auction last March. That was a fantastic baroque violin, equal or superior to my "Hartrain".
