I've been playing acoustic for about a year now, and i've been wanting to upgrade to an electric for a while. I think i'm gonna get a telecaster from fender squier, but i got no idea what kinda amp to go with.
So if you have any advice for choosing a relatively cheap amp for playing at home or maybe some sort of band practice in some near future, i would be very grateful

Tone is in the fingers.

What you really need is a new amp.

(Anything I missed?)

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.

Since i'm still just getting started at playing guitar, and it is still limited what i am able to play, i would like it to be a kinda "all around" amp if possible. But i think i'm gonna play mostly alternative and rock.

About the price range, i would like to be below 150$, cause' honestly i just want something that works, and i don't have a lot of money at the moment.

Yeah, a modeling amp would be good.

Look at these, I think any of them could do the job.

And stay away from Line 6 Spider.

Also people usually tell you to buy the 12 inch speaker version of Vypyr or Mustang because it has a better tone. I have no experience with either but I had a Roland Micro Cube that does the job fine.

Just remember that there are no boring scales, just boring players.
