So I'd like to upgrade my gear and I'm trying to figure out the best way in doing so. I have a Fender FM 212R and it's just not that great. Kind of limited, is what I'm saying. I also have an Epiphone Firebird VII that is pretty good, but also (like most guitars under a $1000) is a little limited in what it can do.

So at my trip to the GC today I was playing on a Fender 410 Deville and loved it. It pretty much had all of the sounds I was looking for; mainly a fuzzy, overdriven, bluesy classic rock sound (a mix of Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page pretty much). Anyway, I can sell the FM 212R for about $250, and I can buy the Deville for $400. If I do that, I'll have $250 left over for an Epiphone Les Paul.

All of that gear would be used by the way. So at the end I would have an Epiphone Firebird VII, an Epiphone Les Paul Limited Edition, and a Fender 410 Hot Rod Deville. And no money . Is that a pretty good plan, or are there other options?

What about if I buy a Gibson LP Special for $400, save up like $200 more, sell the current amp, and buy a Fender Deville then?
