I have an Affinity Squier and a MG30DFX.
Should I upgrade to a Peavey Classic 30 first or a Fender Standard Strat?

You will sound a lot better once you get rid of the MG.

Get the amp. The standard mexican strat won't be much of an upgrade from the squire. But an upgrade from a MG30DFX to a peavey classic 30 will definitely improve your sound. Or get a blues jr (awesome blues amp)

Well, I need to be able to have my cleans heard over my drummer during practice, and everyone says that the Blues Jr. wont be able to do it.
So that's why I'm going for the Classic 30.

New amp for sure,it'll make a world of difference in your sound.

Classic 30 for sure.
New guitar may improve your playing a bit, but a new amp will make you sound way better than you ever good through the MG.

Alright, hopefully I can save enough this year so I can get my 09 Strat before the year ends lol.

if you're sure you're going to upgrade both (and it won't be too long a wait between them), then it doesn't really matter too much, go with your gut. if you hate how your guitar plays, get a new guitar, if you hate how it sounds, get the amp (first).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I won't be able to upgrade them both at the same time.
It'll be a wait since I have to save up money for both.

how much of a wait?

still, i think it really depends on which you currently prefer, i think my advice of "go with your gut. if you hate how your guitar plays, get a new guitar, if you hate how it sounds, get the amp (first)" is pretty sound anyway... as long as it's not a wait of 10 years or something like that.

Seconded is you can stand your guitar for a while. Affinity's aren't as bad as some other entry level models so if you don't hate it, stick it out for a while. Also, buy used, the Classic 30 or DB's go for around $350/375.

I would say to go with the amp if you gig. If you want, you could put some GFS pickups in the Strat you have, i hear they're good. The pups in my afinity strat are a little weak, and if i didnt replace it (I didnt like the feel of the neck much), i would get new pickups.
