ok so i've been playing for a year and a half and i think i'm fairly good for the amount of time i've been playing. i have a 25 year old yahmaha FG-430 acoustic guitar an Epi Les Paul with EMG's (81/85) and a Mesa F-30. I play a little of everything but mostly metal. What should i get next? should i get some effect pedals like a Wah pedal or delay or something else... or another guitar (what would you guys recomend. I've been looking at ESP's lately) or a better strap > the one i have isn't very cofortable. Also i'm thinking of getting a guitar magazine, What kind do you guys recomend.
Edit: Another idea i just thought about was getting a 1x12 extention cab for my mesa F-30 Combo.

so what do you guyz think?

Go for a good strap first. You have to be comfortable while playing or your arm/shoulder is gonna cramp up, and cramps can lead to **** ups. You can find good leather ones in shops for $15-$20 sometimes. Make sure you try it before you buy it.

I bought a brown leather strap for $15. The name was either FXG or GFX or something along those lines. I forget the name exactly but it's a great strap for the price. Plus it beats that new fad with the straps that look like police tape.

A wah pedal is always good too.

Ohhhhhh or a talk box those things are facking cool. The worst part is you need a mic, stand and amp to feed through, and that can be alot of $$$.

Just get any strap that feels comfortable. I got a leather strap as a present for last christmas, and it is the most comfortable strap I have every used. It is just leather and then I added strap loks.

I would get a Wah before I went and got a talk box. I see a wah as more useful than a talkbox. To each his own though. A talkbox may be fun for a while, but how much can you really use it.

Id go for a delay, reverb, wah, and/or chorus
Board:
Pitchblack - Fulltone Octafuzz - Hardwire OD - Blakemore Effects Deus Ex Machina - MXR Micro Chorus - Diamond Memory Lane Jr - EHX SMMH - Neunaber Wet
