well you know vintage do great guitar for little money, i would advise going for the advance series or you could try levinson blade guitars. ibanez also do some great guitars but id advise vintatages overall or oyu coudl ge3t a gordon smith which is handmade and custom for you for only £500.

for an amp you should get peavey valveking or line6. id also advise a vox ad50vt.
Maybe you shoudl get a few fx pedals form digitech as well

amp>guitar

about 80% of tone is your amp.
the guitar is mainly comfort and charicteristics(assuming you buy a tube.)
and there are nothing wrong with higher end epis.
never post on this site without info on stuff or we will never give you much help.

Cuddles' amp is cool. and its no that expensive. get that and some upgraded pickups in your guitar rather than a whole new guitar. my guess is your amp is a Marshall MG15-50 watter. i dont know which one but its in that range.

its pretty good 500$ Kanadian but im actually having problems with its distotion not wanting to acctually shut of.
but if TS wants a solid state id recommend it.

any guitar will do bud,
It's how you use it that matters.
Pickups will do a difference but mainly the rest comes from the amp and effects.
