I am in need of a good practice amp. I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to buying new gear and stuff. I Heard frontman series (Fender) and Spider Series (Line 6) are both good. Help anyone?

Fail. Dont get a line 6 or the frontman. Get a roland cube perhaps?

if you're a newbie and you like more classic rock or any type of tunes like that (pretty much anything but metal) get the frontman. it's a great place to start, and it has halfway decent tone to start out with. then you can add pedals to your collection and frontman will last you a while. just make sure you get something of sufficient size (8 inch speaker is rather weak). spider series has too digitalized sound of guitar, and lots of effects built in, so it's great for those who just wanna play around with their guitar. however, if you wanna hear somewhat decent tone, get a frontman and a few pedals later on - this setup will sound ok with your sg. once you're ready for the next level, think tube.
It's all about feel

I use a Fender FM65R and it's a great little amp for playing at home. It cost me about $450 (Australian dollars). I would highly recomend it for a newbie.

I completly agree. My friend has had his 10'' Frontman For 2 years and just hooks all his pedals up to it, sounds great.

get an Vox AD30VT if you play anything but metal but the AD30VT-XL is the metal version of the AD30VT.
