Got the fender squire starter pack a few months ago and I feel I am not getting the full experience of playing guitar because the amp isnt very good. Is there a better amp I could buy ? I like playing classic rock with abit of modern aswell (bands like RHCP) Thanks in advance

urmm nothing too expensive. I dont really know about effects and yeah its just a practice amp. I just think the amp i have doesnt sound right compared to for example people on youtube. Thanks

Well most of the people on youtube have played for a long time, or at least for a few years. They use effects and all that fun stuff. It looks like you have just started out with playing guitar. I got this package 3 years back. The amp isnt the best, but it works and sounds fine. It may just be your guitar aswell. Check if its in tune, because my tuners were the worst with the strat pack by fender.

You mean as in changing pickups?

Unless you have a really good amp and know EXACTLY what sound you want, the stock pickups in your guitar should do just fine.

Oh, I see. Nevermind.

There aren't really any set rules about which pickup to use. Generally speaking however, the bridge pickup is used for lead (it has a brighter, treblier sound) and the neck is used for rhythm (bassier).

How strict is the £100?

Fender mustang:

Roland cube 15xl

There's also the Peavey Vypyr. I'm not sure how expensive they are in the uk though.

Whatever you do, stay away from marshall mgs and line 6 spiders. They suck ass.

^The VT15 and VT20+ are slightly over your budget but worth it imo.

I haven't tried one, but the vox vt series are supposed to be fairly good practice/starter amps.
