I have no filter, hasn't helped me with relationships.

I could never turn down a gift though. Unless it was given with the specific premise that it be returned if there is a problem, like clothes that don't fit.

Lets just assume that the MG isn't terrible. Say it's an okay amp.

I think we can all agree that it is not the best sounding amp in it's price range, for it's target audience. At the very least, there's the Peavey Vypyr and the Fender Mustang. You can even throw the Vox VT on that list, though I don't think they're amazing.

With those alternatives, why would you ever trump up an MG? They're all the same exact price - give the MG any positive light at all gives manufacturers justification to continue to make inferior products. We can be very harsh critics here - and I think being very harsh and very honest is a very good thing. I've been here a little while, and I know for a fact we have driven a very decent number of people away from Spiders and MGs to Vypyrs. I know for a fact that the grapevine exists, we've given the Vypyr a more positive light in the past few years (or at least, given the Spider a more negative light).

That's a great thing. The more people we can push to a superior product (remember, there is no financial advantage here at all), that will force the other manufacturers to up their ante, and everyone wins in the end.

That's why the MG sucks and you shouldn't buy one.

I know a lot of the other regulars are more pacifist, but I'm not on board for this "MGs are okay" bullshit.


+1

if it's a gift that's different and that's fair enough... but at the same time lots of people lurk forums without ever posting. So letting them know the mg is mediocre isn't a bad thing, imo.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

Wtf.... They want almost 400 for one new in Canada around here. That's ridiculous given what a Valvetronix, Vypyr or Mustang go for.

You can get a Fender Super Champ XD for cheaper.

The MG is overpriced for what you get. Crappy cleans, and a distortion channel that can only get a decent tone if you cut out the mid and avoid adding bass. Otherwise I find it sounds like mud.

However if you got is as a gift you might as well use it for the distortion.
Quote by MrFlibble
Zakk Wylde actually uses four MGs on stage. One set to crushing overdrive, one set to brutal distortion, one set to crushingly brutal distortion, and the fourth set to brutally crushing overdrive.
