I've found you can get a decent sound if you fiddle around with the EQ on Stewart for a while.

The MG4's aren't that bad - much better than their predecessors. However, there are still much better amps out there that can be found for less money than an MG costs.

You should lower the DB around 150 hz, her rectum is pretty muddy.

Since everyone has pretty much pointed out the fact that MG's really aren't worth your time or money (unless you're Wayne Static, of course), why don't you answer these questions and we will help you find an amp that will sound good and will fit your styles:

What genres do you mainly play/What band(s)' tone(s) are you trying to emulate
What is your total budget?
Are you willing to buy used or does it have to be new?
If you are willing to go used, where on the globe are you located?
What other gear are you using?

this. i think this is the only intelligent thing i've ever seen anyone say about the MG4s on UG.

the MG4s are bandwagoned against based solely on the abomination that was their predecessors, which really were abysmal. the new ones are actually not bad at all for analogue solid state amps in the price range and i personally like them better than the new vox valvetronix models which i was a bit disappointed with - but they are still overpriced when you consider that there are tube combos which will offer more in the way of tone for less than the stack - not because they are tube, but because they are just better sounding amps. For a bedroom practice and home recording amp they are pretty good, and before everyone launches their flames at me, for gods sake, i wasn't comparing them to a high end all tube marshall amp like everyone previously has assumed every time i said "the new MGs don't sound bad".
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

While I admit the new MG's aren't as bad as the old ones, they're still way overpriced. And the valvetronix definitely kicks their ass, old or new, it's one of the best practice amps out there.

i play thrash, i really like that old maiden tone, also driven stuff like led zeppelin, id say my guitar day is made of 85% distortion and overdrive and that stuff.

budget is around $550-$800

and i dont need anything over 100 watts.
doesnt have to be a stack either,

You might be able to find an old JCM 800 combo or something similar for around 800.
