Let me give you advice. Buy a Peavey Vypyr or a VOX VT series amp. IMO, and a lot of others' opinions they are best starter amps period.
Ibanez RGR421EXFM >> Maxon OD808 >> BOSS NS-2 >> Peavey 5150 212

Honestly MGs arent that bad. i just got rid of one, and for a starter amp honestly you can't go wrong. the people here are all just ******s who probably have never even tried one before haha. just got to a guitar shop and try a few out. see which you prefer

your right they arent that bad and atleast he's not thinking of buying a 100watt halfstack
but for a similar price there are much better alternatives like the cube or vypyr and i've had an MG myself so im speaking from experience

the features on the Roland Cube 15w:
Roland's CUBE-15X 15W, 2-Channel Guitar Amplifier comes with an 8" speaker, a 3-band equalizer, four lead types (Overdrive, Distortion, Metal, and Metal Stack), and the Power Squeezer. All together, these features will help you shape your tone and achieve a clear sustained sound. The CUBE-15X has a stereo input that allows you to add an MP3, CD, or drum player to your amplifier, and a headphone output so you can listen and practice along with your favorite music in privacy. In addition, the headphone output also works as a record output so you can record your sessions

the MG10:
clean and dirty, no 3 band eq, just the contour...

MG10 is 70$
Roland Cube is 99$

MGs are a major rippoff!

Well if those were the only two in the world I think I'd take the Laney. Quite frankly I'd have neither.
I notice that nobody is taking the TS's location into account, it hasn't been mentioned anywhere. That usually means he's American (very few others are that parochial) but we can't make that assumption. Maybe he's on a small Pacific island and that's all that's available to him?
how about a location and what sort of music you play?
