Hey, I need help picking a new guitar/amp within 1 year, seeing as I got $50 in credit for my local music store..

I currently play metal on a Schecter Sunset DLX and through a Dean Bassola (I like the tone bass amps give more than a guitar amp)

Both of these could use an upgrade, seeing as the dean is well, a dean, but the Schecter works fine, except for the LFR

I don't gig, but I MIGHT within a year or two, so as of now, tone is more important that watts (and if I gig, it'll most likely be small, local gigs and that stuff)

The music store has...

Marshall, Crate, occasionally Blackheart and Line 6 amps.

and..

Schecter, ESP LTD, A B.C. Rich or 2, and I can have Washburn special ordered.

Whatever I get needs to be under about 500, but I can bump it up to 550, and I can haggle a bit below the regular price.

Can anyone give me some suggestions?

Thanks!

What kinds of music do you play? Can you go used, if so, where do you live? What is your budget?

I answered almost all of those..

but anyway
Metal.
Can go used, but probably won't because lack of choice
550-650 MAX

Did you totally ignore the post?

I said my store has Crate, Marshall, and occasionally Line 6 and Blackhearts.

...never said Peavy..

this is absolutely, 100% correct.
For example, Dave Mustaine has a signature coffee mix.

Well then, you have $50 dollars more, now are you going to just argue about everything I say?

Christ! Stop arguing like a little bitch, TS.

Don't hang on to fifty bucks store credit for a year, go get some stuff that you need and expand your options. Crate and Marshall aren't really the best options under 500. Like someone said peavey would be a much better amp for the price.
