Hey there, This is my first post on this forum, if that means anything to anybody.

I'd like some advice as far as upgrading my gear, if you wouldn't mind. Last year for Christmas, I got my first guitar. It is a Sqiuer Strat that came bundled with a G-dec jr. amp. A Great starter setup, from what I can tell. Anyway, I'm starting to look at other things now. My friend, who has been teaching me to play along with this site, has suggested that I look into upgrading now. He isn't the type of guy who just gets the best stuff because it's available, so I trust his judgment.

Anyway, I pretty much found the guitar I want:

Though budget may not (read: most likely will not) allow it. From what my friend tells me, it's basically a Fender rendition of a Les Paul with a Strat neck on it. I like how it feels and sounds.

As for the amp, my friend has been in the market for one as well. He has a peavey Delta Blues amp at the moment, and, while it serves his purpose just fine, and was free, it's not really what he's looking for. He preaches against solid state amps as if they are developed by Satan himself, so he's looking strictly at tube amps. He has been keeping an eye open for something useful for me, and showed me this last week:

Now, for the same reason as the guitar, it isn't too likely that I'll be getting it right away.

I'll be 18 soon, and my parents told me that they want me to get a credit card, put something on it, and pay it off before they charge interest, in order to build credit. (I never thought I'd see the day when my parents told me to get a credit card). Anyway, Guitar Center (the only music store withing an hour of me that I know of) almost always has a 12 month no interest deal going on. This means that I will prolly be able to get either a guitar OR the amp. (If anyone cares, I DO work and will be paying for this myself)

My main question is: the guitar or the amp.

Also, feel free to show me something better and/or cheaper if you feel so inclined, the more input the better, I'll be working with the next set of gear for quite a while, I predict, so I don't want to get stuck with junk.
