ok so now my question is what should i do with my money, i have about 250-300 dollars so should i keep the esp ltd f-50 i just bought or should i return it and buy good amp and play with the Yamaha for a while and save up to buy better ESP guitar since i always wanted an ESP guitar.

if u think i should buy an AMP then which one is good for my budget? and also, i mostly play metal

Well............ I'd say keep the ESP and save up for a better amp. Cause a good guitar is only half the equation.

So, for amps, since you play mostly metal, and i dont know if your planning on getting a pedal chain. I'd have to say a Line 6 spider, they have good metal distortion built in, and some decent onboard FX.
