OK I'm not 100% what guitar I'm going to buy (Though possibly a Squier Deluxe Series Satin Trans HH Strat)

I'd like to know what sort of amp to buy

I was looking at the Vox Valvetronix AD30VT or a Roland Cube 30X which I can get for about £130-£150. But do I really need a modelling amp if I'm just going to be playing in my house? Would a Fender Frontman 25R do me just as good (saving me around £30) or would an Orange Crush 30 give me a better quality sound, costing around the same as the Vox but without the modelling?

I'd say go with the VOX. I have a AD50VT, its never let me down, its excellent quality, and its a reasonable price.

They're all pretty good practice amps IMO.

Though I'd go with the Vox or the Cube.

id go with the orange crush, everytime ive played it one its always sounded good. I might be bias though as ive never liked moddelling amps at all..
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

Vox, and that'd be a pretty good starting rig!

A modelling amp is exactly what you want in a first amp. It'll give you access to all sorts of models and effects, and give you a good idea about what you'll want to get as you built your rig.

And the Vox is the best of the bunch.

How much are you paying for that HH Squier? Because you could get a Ibanez such as the RG321 although it's a fixed bridge. THen again for a starter guitar that may not necessarily be a bad thing. Plus trems at that price aren't that good anyways.

flickr you might

Oranges are actually a revolution though - they're the next step from Rectos IMO.

You could always get a used Mexican Strat. That'd be a flawless rig for a beginner.
