Sorry I wasn't sure which forum to put this in, but I need some help. My friend and I formed a band with some other friends, but right now neither of us have very good equipment. My guitar is fine but I need a new amp, but I've already decided what I'm gonna get. The friend that formed the band with me has a Squire Strat and a Marshall MG10CD. He made a couple hundred bucks over the summer and said he's gonna get a new amp with it, but I'm starting to think maybe he should get a better guitar instead. I know amps are more important if you want a better sound but I was thinking maybe it would be better if he had a guitar that's not a Squire Strat, besides we're not gonna be doing any gigs anytime soon so I'm thinking we could just use the MG10CD for now, but I wanna make sure he makes the right decision. Any help is appreciated!

tl;dr: Should my friend get a new guitar to replace his Squire Strat, or an amp to replace his Marshall MG10CD?

No, I was assuming he's getting a new amp no matter what I said. I meant get a new amp now but before you guys gig get a new guitar.
Yeah, that's right, I can roll my eyes too.

I'm gonna look so stupid for asking this, but what's an MIM?
