is it better to get a new amp before a new guitar? i've always heard amp before guitar but i'm thinking differently for some reason. share your thoughts.

thanks.

yes. hopefully i mean u have both already and ur talking about upgrades.

but i always spend more on amps now. find a guitar that feels good. but get an amp wt great tone.

get an amp YOU like. don't listen to tone snobs.

usually they're hypocritical anyways, ie. jimi hendrix had great tone and great tone only comes from tube amp. (hendrix played a SOLID STATE).

yea, if you dont have anything, a guitar would be a better choice (obviously)

but if you are upgrading, an amp will be a better purchase when upgrading (unless you got a killer amp already)

jimi hendrix never played a ss amp, mainly because they didnt exist back then. (none i can find)

plus he used marshalls for the majority of his career.

Depends on your current rig...
and also, some people dont realize that alot fo people like getting a new guitar b/c it pulls them inot the guitar playing again, a new guitar usually grabs there attention more b/c they are in love w/ it...

you can say that about an amp too, but i think a guitar wins in the situation

if you dont like your guitar, get one you like
if you think your guitar is decetn,. get an amp

He used All tube Marshall heads. The ones where you can crank the volume to 11. LOL

And for the threadstarter, Amp has more influence on the sound than most people think. But if you put garbage in, then you get garbage out. So, the answer is, if you have both guitar and amp that sucks then you have to upgrade both.
