so, after playing for about 4 years, i think i need better equipment......so i have about $800....for around that, i can get an lp studio, or an epi lp + a decent amp......so is the epi lp comparable to the studio??? or is it just a beginner guitar? which option is better? the studio or the epi+ amp?

we need to know what amp you have now.

What equipment do you have now?
I'd say the Epiphone and the amp is the better option. The amplifier has a bigger effet on your tone than the guitar, so upgrading the amp AND guitar is your best bet here if your amp and guitar at the moment are both naff. Epiphone Les Pauls are good guitars.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

You may want to test the Epi out in person extensively first. They have some of the most inconsistent product QC around.

$800 sorta leaves you in the middle of no where... unless you go used. $800 will get you a mid range amp that might end up being upgraded. Similarly a guitar in this range is rather average as well. If you split the budget between the amp and the guitar, you end up with sorta slightly better than entry level guitar and amp.

Can you sell the 15 watt amp, keep the Squier for the time being and get a second hand amp?

The question is, what are you trying to accomplish?

Bedroom or Gig?

What genre's do you prefer?

Get yourself a bridge humbucker for your Squier and upgrade your amp.


IMO you're better off saving your money for an HSS strat. Putting a nice pup in a squire is still only gonna make it sound decentish. The MIM strats have a little better craftsmanship/sound

What about Gibson Les Paul Special (with p90s)? You can get those for less than $800 (used)...
