I have a Epi. les paul standard with a fender frontman 15w amp ( the beginner one u get from the package) and and metal muff with overdrive distortion pedal.

I like playing punk to metal to alternative music. Should i get a new guitar n amp? or is the guitar i have now fine? I like stuff like a7x, rise against, newfound glory stuff like that

Id imagine that what you have is fine for now. I dont know anything about the amp, but Im sure the pedals can make up for the distortion. Youd need a bigger amp for playing with others though. Good taste in music though.

dude, thats what i thought, until i got a lot better and met some people who wanted to jam. That 250 would be better off put towards a bigger amp, at least big enough to be heard over a drummer. You never know...

amp for sure. the standard and the muff are good for years. suggestions for amp: roland cube series for a nice solid state, for tube, blackheart, epi valve jr. , etc. with that metal muff and an epi valve jr. stack, you'll get any tone you could need.

If I were you, I'd put all the money you can to one side until you get into a band. Then get yourself the nicest amp you can afford. There are alot of amps available for you for a little bit more money so don't rush into a decision. Saving a little more now will seem harder, but further down the road, you'll thank me A nice valve amp lasts a long time.

Guitar is cool btw, don't worry about it
