My younger brother birthday is coming up in about two weeks and my parents told me that i have to pay half of the guitar and amp total price.

He wants this

Marshall MG15MSII Micro Stack


Ibanez S520EX


Or

Ibanez RG5EX1


But i want him to get this setup
Palomino V16 15W


Ibanez RG370DXGP


mine is in my budget range, is more versatile, and has better tone than the mg micro stack. His agrument is that the Mg is more versatile than the palomino and the budget on my side doesn't matter because it's his birthday present.

P.S. my brother is tone deaf.

I'm on your side. But he doesn't know the different between anything at the moment it seems. So I guess bite the bullet. Let him have some fun. He'll figure it out later.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

No DO NOT let him buy crap gear like an MG thinkin its good because its marshall, only for him to be disappointed in three months when he realises how much it sucks. Show him this thread, trust me little boy *beckons with candy* you want the 2nd setup!!!

I think you should get him a Roland Microcube or a Cube 30x or maybe a Vox Valvetronix to give him some effects to play around with and some decent tones too.

Both those RGs have Edge IIIs if I remember right, so I wouldn't bother with them. Get the S or a fixed bridge RG.
Got on the bus with me daysavaaaa

How about a
Cube 15x

Ibanez RG 350MH


I don't think you should have something with a FR for a first guitar.

Tone deaf alright. Someone whos played for Five years thinks the the MG is versatile? What the.... lol. Anyways get him that amp from the second set up or a Roland Cube 15. Also get him a different guitar. Maybe a cheap Jackson or Dean.

Dude, if he starts making DEMANDS about GIFTS he's really not deserving at all. You can get him whatever the hell you want and he'd better be happy about it
#25
buy him the mg microstack and watch him whine when he finds out it sucks..then you can rub it in his face
#26
Today i took my brother to the local Guitar Center to try out all the amps and guitars he wanted. this is rig that he wants the only that did change was the amp wattage.

Seriously, if he wants an MG then don't pay for it - it's a piece of crap. There are better amps in that price range that sound better and also have better reliability.

If he wants versatility then he wants a Cube or a Valvetronix.
Actually called Mark!

30 watts is kinda loud for an apartment if there are neighbors to think about.
#34
it's not that loud because where my family lives the nearest neighbor is two miles away so it wouldn't be loud at all. plus i don't live with my family since i go to a bording schooling anyways.

Oh the stuff you could get away with
#36
yeah i could get away with anything back home but i like here at the academy.

back on topic my mom said he can't get roland cube so it's the palomino V16 again it's popular around the house it's better buy for me because it's a two hour trip to where i live, to parent house, and the guitar center.

That's pretty crazy. If my parents tried that on me I'd probably call them gay and start crying. That'd show them.

it's annoying this time of year because most of my family members have birthdays in march, so i'm buying gifts cards in bulk.

this years been irritating me because the twins Akira and Daisuke want electrics but i can only afford to pay half of each of the guitars and amps that they want. plus I'm buying stuff for three other siblings too.
