It depends. If it is a 20-watt Dr. Z, for instance, then yes. If it is a 20-watt Line 6 Spider, then no.

Cheap guitar < Great amp

Basically you tone depends more on the amp than the guitar.

Depends on the amp. My VOX sounds pretty good for $240. If you aren't gigging then an amp isn't a high priority, yet. Save up your money and once you start want to jam with others use your guitar to audition amps you are considering buying. No snese playing a mediocre guitar thru a great amp in your bedroom.
Moving on.....

Just because one don't gig, that dosen't mean that tone dosen't matter.

There's nothing wrong playing a mid level guitar through a nice amp in your bedroom.
Great tones tend to inspire Makes me want to play more when I have a good tone.

probably not. given that you said practice amp, I assume its probably not the best amp on the planet (generally, people don't refer to low-wattage boutique gear as "practice" gear). if you have a good, small amp, it'll be fine. wattage is an indicator of power, not tonal quality.

if, you do have a cheap little amp, you may want to invest in a better one before you pop for a better guitar. given that the amp ultimately processes the signal from the guitar and makes it audible, even the best guitar will sound lousy through a poor amp. therefore, upgrading to a nice guitar (the LTD is a very nice guitar, especially considering the money), but playing it through a cheap amp really stands very little chance of giving you a decent tone.

If the 'tone' freaks here concentrated a little more on their actual playing instead of their amp we'd all be a little better off.
