They are pretty good amps, with a diecent build quality. I see no reason that you caouldn't get some really good tones for your style. It is some what versitile, but is more geared twards metal/hardrock.
And it is miles above your MG!

Yeah I knew a guy who had a B52 and it sounded pretty good, but that was only when it would work! I think you'll be happy with the XXX. I just don't like the face plate, but that doesn't affect your sound. I have the Bugera 333 which is the XXX clone, and it has more than enough gain for any thing I play and doesn't get supper muddy unless you just scoop all the mids out.

I have one and wouldn't trade it for anything else. It's built like a tank and great for metal. Its clean channel is good at high volumes, and there are two separate gain channels,so it is versatile. There is no way you should want more gain after playing through one. I've had it retubed once since I've had it. The only other problem I've had is the fuse cover broke when trying to remove it. From what I've read they're kind of notorious for that.

1. Sure, it can.
2. Peavey amps are absurdly road-worthy.
3. Cleans are decent, crunch is pretty good, Ultra is awesome.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
