Hi in 3 or 4 weeks ill have about 1300 Australian dollars and I want to upgrade my crap rig, ATM I have a squire HSS strat, a 15w Frontman practice amp a ds1 and a vox wah.
My qustion is what should I upgrade first and maybe some suggestions, I play pop/punk/rock kinda stuff like the living end, RHCP, offspring etc.
Any and all help greatly appreciated.
cheers Mick

go with an amp. your tastes will decide WHAT amp you want. you could probably get a decent tube amp and have money left over for a couple stompboxes depending on what amp you get, but thats on you.

Definitely an amp man!!!! Try get something similar to what frusciante uses. I can't remember his exact setup, but i know he uses a ds-1. If you can't afford what amp he uses, getsomething very similar. Your gat should be fine. But obviously start saving for a nice fender!!!

+1 on the amp!
For that price you could probably get an alright tube amp if you wanted. Especially if you import, although be wary as shipping cost can be a killer.

Not going to happen on that budget... And yes he has a ds-1 on his board, but frusciantes sound comes from a lot of pedals.

Start with a decent amp, and maybe an OD to replace the DS-1. A Classic 30 with a tubescreamer or something would work.

I know that you get shafted for gear prices in Australia, and apparently you also get shafted on web design...basically you've got two routes to go down, you either go for a modeller if you're still unsure of the sound you want, still want a lot of variety and effects to play with. Or if you're firmly in the rock/hard rock camp and want something that's designed for those tones you go for a tube amp that fits the bill. Despite the atrociousness of some othe websites here's a few you should be trying....

http://www.guitar.com.au/amplifiers/electric/peavey/index.htm

If you want a great rock amp that can be pushed into heavier tones then the Peavey Classic 30 would be a good choice

Also the Jet City JCA20 http://www.billyhydemusic.com.au/shop/view/12211/jet-city-guitar-amplifier-head-and-cab-ministack/

Don't be fooled by the low wattages of the tube amps, they're damn loud!

If you want a modeller then the Peavey Vypyr 75 and the Vox Valvetronix 50w are the one's I'd be looking at
