i have a vox valvetronix ad30vt amp, which is ok, but would like something better.

i play through either my parker p42 or more frequently my upgraded squier strat.

which do you think would be more beneficial, a new amp, most likely going to be something along the lines of a blues or pro jr

OR....

a new strat, most definately would be a fender classic player 60s strat

thoughts and musings would be helpful, thanks.

A new amp.

What kind of music do you play?
Budget?
New/Used?
Band/Gigging?
etc.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Good poll?

It's a fact that the amp is more important for the tone, not an opinion.

An amp is what makes your sound. You need a guitar that is comfortable and easy to play. Everyone wants to say its "in the fingers" but hitting a G chord is pretty much the same all around. That may apply to lead players, but not generally making music on a guitar. I'm not a lead player, and amp selection is very important in making recordings.

the amp is more important to your sound, but if you really dont like your guitar get a new one. cos you no, you cant play an amp without a guitar.
#9
If you have a guitar you are happy with, definitely a new amp.

Definitely amp.

And yes, a good setup can make wonders for your guitars...
Sometimes you don't even think they need a setup, but once you get one, you're like "holy $#/%, i didn't know this guitar feels so amazing!"
