Well in the summer i will be looking for a completely new rig. As stated i have about 1700 to spend (1800 including taxes). I play mostly blues, classic rock, hard rock but will often venture into other styles of music.

As for the amp i want something very versatile. Good cleans yet a good crunch. It doesn't have to go any higher than Metallica's sound. Right now i have my eye on the orange tiny terror but am open to suggestion. As for a cab to accompany this amp i am thinking of buying the epi valve junior cab (limited funds) for now and untill i can get more money for possibly an orange cab.

As for a guitar i am completely open to suggestions but have my eye on a fender 60's or 50's classic stratocaster. Dont want anything to crazy looking, rather more classic.

I would also prefer to spend more on the amp do to its greater influence on tone so please dont suggest any 1200 dollar guitars. Try to stay within 1000$ for the amp and 700$ for the guitar.

loud as hell but amazing, i have one

Guitar wise if you like those strats get one. I dont know how great they'll be for metallice-ish gain like you asked for, but if you get one with a bridge humbucker your fine. Either way you might just want to buy a cheap OD to push yourself into heavier territories

You cant use just any head with a valve junior cab, its a 25watt cab i think.

If you have your heart set on a Strat then get one that has a humbucker to give you that extra bite you need for that hard rock/metal tone. And even with the humbucker, a nice OD wouldn't hurt at all. It will help push you into that metal territory and if you ever get into heavier stuff than what you are now you will already have the OD to shape your tone.
