Always amp first, unless your guitar is unplayable.

Especially if your gigging. Im not gigging and I actually play unplugged alot or through my POD so I decided to go with a new guitar first but yeah I would go amp first since you gig.

i have a 50W behringer, its pretty aweful.

i understand completely what you mean by horrible noise at high volume.

luckily, having it on 2 makes it loud enough. and its alright for practising at low vol.

It might do you well to get the guitar professionally set up as well.



What do you mean like the floyd rose and stuff? because I was thinking on telling them to drop it to c for me because I'm not experienced with Floyd roses yet

Set up does not mean a floyd rose. A setup includes: String change, Truss rod adjustments, action adjustments, intonation, nut adjustments and some minor maintenance jobs.

See http://users.powernet.co.uk/guitars/setuptut.htm for more info on a setup.

The setup will probably cost you around $50 depending on how much work they need to do but it will make your guitar play, sound and feel better.
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums

I meant your current guitar. Getting it set up would probably help get you by until you get a new guitar.

Do you think I would need a good distortion pedal for for the amp? what about a noise surpressor

It doesn't have a ton of built in gain so if you're going to be playing heavy metal then yes a distortion pedal with the clean channel is quite nice. A noise suppressor would be a good idea as well as it can be a fairly noisy amp.
