add the Spider III on there and the list is complete! (of the most overpurchased bad starter amps)

I'll obey UG and suggest the Peavey Vypyr.

Peavey Vyper or a Roland Cube. Both are MUCH better then both of those amps. Once your ear for tone develops, you won't hate a cube or vyper, but you will hate a MG or Frontman.

Edit: Buy your amp first. A decent amp will make any guitar sound decent to good, but a crap amp will make any guitar sound like crap.
'89 MIJ Fender Strat
Rivera S-120
'60s PEPCO Model 211 5w head
'60s Paul (Pepco) 1x12 tube amp
'60s Harmony H303a 1x10 tube amp
