Well I've been playing for about 4 months or so now and im actually starting to finally notice some of the limitations of my gear. so i was thinking of upgrading something but im not sure which would do me the most good.

Current:
Jackson JS30 (Dinky shape, no trem)
MicroCube
Mogami Neutrik Cable

Want:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard (maybe the plus if i can get the money)
Roland Cube60 amp (open to other suggestions, i just really like my microcube so i now like the idea of Roland amps)

I was also thinking of just getting an acoustic guitar cause ive been wanting one and was having a hard time figuring out whether to upgrade the guitar or amp first.

Any suggestions would help, thanks

If you're looking for tonal improvements, amp.

If you're looking for aesthetic/comfort/hardware improvements, guitar.

If you're gravitating away from electric, then acoustic.

Always spend more on your amp than your guitar... it's 90% of your sound. Always upgrade that first... and considering you have a little mini amp, you'll probably want something bigger with more booming yoo-hoo (whatever that means)...

Both the Roland Cube amps and the Vox modelling amps are pretty good... steer clear of Line 6.

I agree, amp first. How much are you willing to spend?

if your have only been playing for 4 months your gear is not your limitation. Technique probably has the biggest influence on tone they any instrument. I would spend the money on lessons.

it probably has some to do with my technique im sure. but right now im not too willing to take lessons.

i would be willing to sell my guitar and put up the difference for the Epi, i could probably onyly spend like 250-300 on the amp.

I may just get the acousitc. im not at all gravitating away from electric, but i do enjoy the acoustic sound sometimes. And i would probably buy the Yamaha FG730 and just use that as my acoustic for a LONG time, if i ever upgrade it. casue im more into electric.

oh by the way i really just play in my dorm room and no gigs or with any drums. sometimes (very rare) other guitars. so i figured the microcube was fine for that.

Whats the new I banez acoustic electric that is being released sounds almost like the best of both worlds.
