this is the one its a vintage brand SG with 2 humbuckers im paying £200 for this and the kustom amp with a few extras thrown in as well, do you think that is a good deal?

It's not really important what I think as long as you're happy! ;)
I would probably go for this
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=10383
or this
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=3484

but that's me, and your way you have local support in case of any problems (hopefully they'll be none)

why would you go for those over the vintage? the reason i picked it is cos i wanted something with humbuckers but now you have put an element of doubt in my mind.........is the vintage poor value for money?

I don't know much about the Vintage, the Pacificas are supposed to be very good and have a humbucker and I have a Squier myself which I like, you can probably get an Affinity Fat strat for the same money. However I probably know less tahn you about guitars, I just like to give people options ;)
But It is whatever you are happy and comfortable with, if you tried the SG and liked the sound through the Kustom then go for it.

IMO if you are set on a SG though I'd go for the G400 from Peter Cook I suggested in your other thread

and do you think you can recreate the sound on the items you are wanting? Did you try them out or get the shop guys to do it for you?

LOL i can try to recreate the sounds that i want......i mean ACDC Led Zeppelin and all that but no im no where near that standard yet i know a few lick and trick and some basic songs thats it the guy in the shop gave me a demo of back in black and whole lotta love and it sounded awesome....i did give it a go myself but i managed the intro to white stripes seven nation army and played a few bars of wonder wall by oasis and it felt really good...why did you ask?

because the only way you'll know if the guitar and amp give you the sound you want is to hear them.
Did you try the SG through a different amp and a different guitar through the Kustom?
I just worry that what ever the shop guy played would sound awsome, because they always do to me ;)
