Ok so i have like a 700$ budget. I'm thinking about getting a 300$ and buying like 400$ worth of gear? or buynig a 700$ guitar?
Is this for an electric or an acoustic. If it's an electric, probably spend the majority on amp. If it's an acoustic, I would say buy the least gear you can. Don't even get a pickup until you need it.
I play alot of christian music. I play it at church alomst every Sunday
A nice fender tube would be great . Such as this: http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Pro-Junior-Combo-Amp?sku=480511
and maybe a pacifica 112 for the guitar. Fender tube amps have pretty amazing cleans.

Probably get some kind of strat or tele because you'll probably want the single coils for the music you are playing.
Try to buy used to save some cash.

Okay, even if you have the worlds best guitar if your're going to play it through a **** amp its still gonna sound ****. If you have an average guitar but a really nice amp, you won't sound amazing but you'll sound decent enought. I say spend $400-$500 on a small tube amp and the rest on a pedal or two or even a guitar if you want but i rekon you need $250-$300 for a guitar. But this all depends on what you have now? Do you have an okay guitar, do you have an okay amp?

Here are aome of my suggestions:



http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Vypyr-Tube-60-60W-1x12-Guitar-Tube-Amp?sku=482912 <--- This is not out yet but i'm getting one

and then an od pedal(i konow it probabily doesn't suit your style but its fun to have around) and/or sustainer pedal and/or eq pedal.

If you dont have a guitar at all then here a few guitar you could look at:
