Get the amp....SG's really do suck...Your epiphone is alot better...Don't be fooled by the name on a headstock, gibsons are only expensive for the name gibson, they are all bark, no bite.

Upgrade your amp before your guitar, or at least that's a good general rule of thumb. Your epiphone, especially with the upgraded pickups, will sound MUCH better with the Marshall than a Gibson would sound through your Spider.

Get the amp first. The SG is brilliant (I know, I play one) but the Epiphone is a solid instrument too. The improvement from the not-so-good Spider II to a JCM 800 combo, however, is monumental. You're going to play one chord out of the Marshall and be like "how did I ever play out of that piece of crap Spider!?"

I'm going to go against what every one is saying here and tell you to get the amp first.

I would get the amp. I saved up and got my RR3 and fixed some stuf with it and now I still don't have a good sound becasue I don't have that good of an amp. You will look cooler with a guitar but you won't sound as good. Right now I'm screwed, I saved for 8 months to get my RR3 and stuff and now I've got to save for like a year to get a better amp. Also you'll probably feel like hte guitar isn't that great since you don't have a great amp yet. So get the amp.

id go for the amp.

and whoever said SG's sucks, sucks! Sgs sound awesome, they cut through a mix really great. Anyone who ever said any guitar sucks, (other than copies, and cheap budget guitars), is a biased and narrowminded, ignorant person.

The amp would pair great with your guitar you have now, and will sound even better with a better guitar.
