I'm no expert but I wouldn't mind something like that. All I do is probably get a different amp and maybe a Boss mega distortion (personal preference).
My Stuff:
ESP LTD MH-400 (pic's here)
Epiphone G-400 SG
Vox AD30VT
Marshall JH-1 Jackhammer

Big no on most of 'em.

What styles do you play? Do you need the wah (the crybaby's crap) and distortion pedal?

You should spend about £500 on the amp and the same on the guitar.
