IMHO, assuming you don't have any unsecured debt, I would suggest getting a second guitar and some extra strings and picks.
For me, yes, I have lots of non-essentials. I like guns and knives. I don't just have them for SHTF, I now have a collection. I like bicycles, I have two, I will get a couple more. I don't think a bent and a folder will be much use in a SHTF, but.... I am also a foodie. I have non-essential food.
