I'd certainly look into Schecter guitars. I have an Omen 6 (I got it for €300, about 215 pounds if I'm correct), it looks and works great. I would change the pickups though because they break up very fast when playing loud and distorted music.
I would invest in a new amp. But if you have your heart set on a guitar, Schecters are good for metal and not too expensive. Also look at LTD/ESP and maybe some Jacksons.
get a new amp for gods sake

Squier Strat

Fender Roc Pro 1000 Half Stack

Digitech Bad Monkey
Dunlop Original Crybaby Wah
Digitech Cool Cat Chorus
The thing im not sure about is im ok at guitar but im not great and i sometime think is it worth paying oout for a new guitar which at my leval isnt going to sound overly different. been looking at Peavey Vypyr 15 amps.
Definitely get a new amp if you want to sound more bro0talz. If you just hate the way your guitar is (neck is too crap, hardware is falling off) then you can replace it.
