I'm thinking about purchasing a new guitar, but the other ones i own i didnt really pay much attention to quality. the only reason i got my strat because blink played with those but that was when i was like 12. lol Now i'm 17 and this time i wanna make sure i get quality so what do you really look for when buying a guitar? and when buying an amp too.

let's say you want $1300 for a complete rig...


Ibanez RG321mh should be fin, that's like, 3/400?

then you have around 900-1000 for the amp.

You have a few choices:

Peavey 5150 used for cheap + marshall 1960 series cab for cheap, might take a while to pull this off, but this is my exact setup which i paid 900 for.

Peavey XXX super 40 EFX - nice combo. 800, would allow you to spend some on a better guitar or new pickups

Marshall jcm 800 + marshall 1960 series cab - again might take you a while to find good prices used but it should be about the same

Mesa F-series: Good stuff. Good prices.

and if you dont mind waiting for a cab:

Used Mesa/Boogie Single Recitifier
