I'm not going to steer you away from that amp so much as pick you up with a crane and drop you on the other side of the country.

In other words, it's an awful amp and you can do an awful lot better
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Do yourself a favor and don't buy it.

Thin and fizzy tone and poor build quality are trademarks of the Marshall MG series.

to be honest those amps are quite brutal, try to get a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe used for that money or save up some more. But MG is a begginner amp, if you're just starting out go for it, but if you are going after a good tone go for something else.

The amp is really bad.

Dont buy a halfstack below $1300

Rather go for a good combo.

I was at GC the other day and it was packed full of Marshall MG's. I was only picking up some strings at the time. With all the negative buzz about the MG - I have to hear this sick amp! As a long time Marshall user/advocate...has Marshall went insane???

Anyhoots, I just have to hear this thing, I'm going to GC this weekend...LOL (actually I am serious!)

Peace!

For a long time I've been of the opinion that Marshall hasn't made a good product since the original JCM800's went out of production. The introduction and continued marketing of the MG series only supports that opinion.

JCM2000 rox? JVM aint that bad? Nor the Vintage modern.

I guess your friend figured out he bought a cheap poor sounding amp and needs a new one now so is trying to pawn it off on you. And of course after a while you will figure it out and sell it to some other unsuspecting soul. Ah the circle of life.

I'm not even a fan of the JCM800, but Marshall has been going downhill since. Marshall seems to have gotten back on track with the release of the JVM, but I doubt they'll stay on track. There's plenty of other amps to choose from anyway.

It's all Marshall, its white cosmetic will stand out ontsage, and it's priced easy. Order today.


Translation:
Its only good points are: the logo on it, the slightly unusual tolex colour, and the price.

Buy it. Its White, so you'll sound exactly like Randy Rhoads.
