OK, im stuck right now. I dont know whether to get a guitar or an amp.

Stuff I have right now is
Ibanez RG370DX
Crate 350 watt SS head
Behringer Cab (eminence spkrs)

I play metal and the budget is around 1300 bux (USD).

What choice should I make and WHY should I make that choice?

Thank you!

Amp, easily.

Amp makes a much bigger impact on tone than guitar. Plus, you already have a nice guitar, but your amp could use an upgrade. Plus, with 1300, you can get an awesome amp.

new amp head

Maybe a ENGL or 6505+

BTW what eminence in the behriger?

Im using some Legends (V12) in the cab.
Sounds like the amp is the way to go. It is the more expensive of the two choices, so it's probably better to go with that first.
Thanks guys.
Any of you other peoples gots anymore ideas?
{EDIT}What amp should I get.
Iv'e been lookin at
Peavey 5150/6505(+)
VHT/FRYETTE Deliverance120
Madison Divinity II
Marshall TSL/DSL 100 2203(KK)
H&K amps

If you have these one of these amps, please let me know how you like it. If you would recommend it or whatever. If you have other suggestions by all means tell me.

The amp will make the largest difference to your tone, and any other upgrades you make will sound a whole lot better when you have a better amp.

However, any other present upgrade you make now may not be that significant when you do upgrade your amp.

Hence, change your amp first, so you will benefit more from future upgrades.

5150s have relatively bad cleans and everyone uses them, so you'd sound like every band out there.

Madisons are terribly unreliable from what I've seen and heard.

Consider the following as well:

- ENGL Powerball or Blackmore
- Mesa Mark III
- Mesa Mark IV
- Mesa Mark V
- Mesa Triple Rectifier 2-channel (or the new, 3 channel one)
- Mesa Stiletto
- Peavey 3120
- Peavey XXX
- Peavey Ultra Plus

Mesa Mark IV, Mesa Roadster (you might be able to find one), JCM 800 + O/D is super brootal.
