I was in Sam Ash the other day and I seen a used Fender Twin Reverb for $900 that I'm really interested in. What I'm wondering is should trade in my current Fender FM 212 DSP that I would look to get for $250 for and pay the difference or I also want to get a new guitar which I'm looking at a Fender American Standard Telecaster that would cost $1000, my current guitar is a Fender Standard Stratocaster. Any suggestions on what to go for?
Go for the Twin Reverb first; amp is 90% of tone.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Get the twin. The MIM strat is a good instrument, the FM is a horrid amp. Plus you'll be set pretty much forever with a twin.
Also, it's "saw," not "seen."
