Id certainly get a nice tube amp first.

Then save up for a nice high end guitar.

Yeah I agree, get a nice amp first. You can make an rg370dx sound fine with a good amp. I have a rg250dx and it sounds great as long as the amp isn't crap. Worry about the high end guitar after you get an amp that will do it justice!
