id be more concerned about the squire tbh. there pretty bad imo(and m ost other ppls).

the guitar i was bought was 100quid from sound control, legacy strat model and comes with amp ect and is well worth ther price imo

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

Its an ok, amp to start out with, i bought it with my first guitar a few weeks ago and its been good so far for what i wanna do with it.
For starting out, I'd say that's good enough, although you could do better.

Its just a little practice amp its not going to sound like a marshall stack amp. But is alot easier to carry around.

mostly indie rock
the killers,the strokes,arctic monkeys,the fratelies,franz ferdinand,maybe some greenday
im gettin the squire 'cause my bro has a epiphone sg and i just tink the sound is too deep
i tried my friends basic squire strat and thought it sounded good so with the extra humbucker it should sound even better

Stop dissing squiers noobs. Affinity Tele/'51 ftw.

Yes. The '51 is one of the best guitars Squier currently produce. And they're cheap as chips on eBay.
The Squier Strat and a Vox AD15VT (or, like Becky said, even a DA5 - which is portable) would be perfect for you. It would give Indie-type sounds, has some effects to play around with to keep you interested and the guitar is really versatile and comfortable. Just pick your favourite colour and away you go
But they aren't even in production any more. >=( I want one though, to paint pink and stick rails of some sort in...

TS, get an affinity tele and a AD15VT, perfect indie sound.
-Is also 15-
Do it. They're fun to mod. I wanted to get new everything for mine. Pickups, controls, bridge, neck, tuners etc. Even a new paint job. Then I sold it to buy a Strat, but stuff came up and I ended up with a £30 beat-up Yamaha

^ A Strat and a Tele give different sounds. Teles are generally used in more indie and country styles, as well as some blues (think Chicago blues) whilst Strats are more 'rock 'n' roll' and blues (like...Texas blues). Teles are known for their twangy sound, whilst Strats are better at...quacky? sounds.
I think you got a really good package. Even though its a small amp the Peavey will sound good in your room. Its tubey enough to let you get a feel for the response of an all tube amp down the road. You'll be fine with the Squier. Enjoy yourself!
