Why does everyone hate them? I mean, I'd never use one on stage or anything, but they seem like fine practice/beginner amps to me.

Am currently looking for a practice amp (My beginner died out on me.), and there aren't any Rolands/Peaveys in my local music shops. However, there're tons of Marshalls.

In your opinion, what would be the best MG series Marshall for practice.

Again, this isn't going to be a permanent amp. I'll be getting a tube in like, a year.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
The <30 watt versions are decent practice amps.
But it's when you buy the 100 watt halfstack, it's pointless because you could have gotten something so much better for the price.
Just buy something off an online store, maybe a Vypyr or something.

Just get the MG10 if you really have to, any bigger and you have wasted money that you could put towards that tube amp slightly sooner.

A year is a long time to be stuck with something you'l hate within a month?
Your on a guitar forum, do a search and your question will be answered in the first few threads you find.

They are hated for many reasons...
Lack of Tone
Lack of Features
"Your Paying for the Marshall name"
They are not real Marshalls
Marketing Schemes

Do you really want your Christmas to be full of upset and regret?

Even the Spiders are probably better, you'd get more fun out of it atleast.

Why does it have to come from your local music shop? Its Christmas, the internet is full of deals!

You should honestly get something that you won't be tired of its tone within like a month or two. Order online if you can't find anything locally.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

Definitely order online. Get like, a Roland MicroCube, it's cheap and then you can start saving for something way better.

There are overgrown very quickly. As your ear develops and your techniques improve
it simply wont produce the tones you need it to.

MGs are hated because of their tone and the price. they are pretty expensive for the tone that you get. i own one and i unfortunately cannot get rid of it as of now. if you really must get an MG for practice, go for an MG10 or 15 but don't expect to get really good tones.
