I'm trying to decide which setup I should do
I know that many people suggest Ok Guitar + Decent amp over Decent guitar + Ok amp, I still can't decide which one I want to go with.

Would you rather have a or b (considering the price range is same)

a)Ibanez RG321 (one without trem) with
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 40w
or
Vox Custom Classic AC15CC1 15w

or

b)Ibanez S520EX (one with ZR trem) with
Vox AD30VT
or
Roland Cube 30x

basically, Ok Guitar + Decent Amp or Decent Guitar + Ok Amp.
Given that you I will have chance to upgrade the "Ok" one later, which would you go with?

Thanks

Hot Rod as amp for sure, but i'd not ruin it by putting an Ibanez into it, especially such a cheap one. Sell your current gear, and get a real guitar and the Hot Rod.

Haha, an Ibanez will sound good through the amp, just choose what you feel best with.

I would go with the better amp, and dont just listen to us on which amp to get, go out and play the Vox and Fender next to eachother. Each will be plenty loud, fender may be a little to loud. play them next to eachother and get what you want, they are both good amps.
Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Joe Perry Boneyard (BKP Black Dogs)
Dunlop Classic Crybaby
Supro Thunderbolt!

The Hot rod but scrap the Ibanez!!

Stick a tele through it and wail or a Les Paul or something semi hollow like a gretsch.

Or even a Jazzmaster....that would be a slick combination, Jazzmaster and Hot Rod, simplistic, raw and distinctive in tone!!
