Well, I've been playing for about a year now an I think its time for some new equipment.

I have a Squier Fat Strat right now and I've been looking at a Big Apple Strat (Does anyone know the last year they produced it and how much it would cost around?) and an Epiphone LP Standard. As for amps...I'm not sure, a Vox AD30VT? Marshall Micro-Stack? Epiphone Valve Stack? I have a Frontman 25R right now.

Out of the amps, the Vox or the Epiphone would be best, the Vox if you're planning on getting used to effects and all that jazz, the epi if you're planning on just playing straight up with no bells or whistles.
