Proven product

This is quite an amazing amp... When I first tried it out at the near by Guitar Center store, I was confused. How 600$ amp could sound equally good to double or triple price amps?! Transistor driven amp that delivers tube sound?! Its 100 watts sound like gigawatt! I own a Gibson Les Paul - Studio and a Fender Telecaster, two guitar brands just made for Marshall amps, or vice versa. They both kick arse with this amp. I just don?t understand all these bad reviews, people complain about distortion, effects and so forth...My advice to you guys is: spend 2000 - 4000$ on ?better? amps or just buy good guitars. Good guitar sounds good on a bad amp, while bad one sounds like crap even on a good amp. I?m sorry if I sound like a smart-ass to my fellow musicians, but I think someone has to break it to you guys. I tried bunch of different amps in the same price range, and Marshall, as always, set the bar too high. This amp will blow you away - literally (again: only if you have a decent guitar)!

I tried that amp out a couple years back. Because I wanted something bigger and louder. I walked out with my b-52. That is 1000x better than that amp.

What really turned me off about the MG was how thin the distortion sounded, and the effects sounded awful.

Well, tastes vary... let him have some fun until he gets annoyed by the thin sound and high frequency hiss of the mg.

These amps are weird. I liked them at first glance but the longer you play them, the more they get on your tits.

EDIT: What's even stranger is that they sound absolutely the same no matter what guitar you use. I know this is common with modeling amps and ss amps, but the mg (and the avt, by the way) are extreme in that department.

It would be called regular deaf. Tone deaf means you can't really tell if something is in tune or not.

Sorry to be a smartass to fellow musicians!

I have an MG. Mine's made by Mesa/Boogie, though. It's alright. Nothing to write home about.

wut? pics?
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Whats even stranger is that he seems competely unable to use grammar, and the entire thing is one big runon. Are you sure it's real?

I've never heard of a Mesa MG. More details please?

Edit: I smell troll. I didn't notice the "Fender Les Paul" on my first read of the poster's sig.

Re: the original review, I can forgive a lot when it comes to different tastes. But what I do think is nonsense is the reviewer's assertion that crappy guitars through good amps sound bad, but good guitars through bad amps sound good. IMO he has this completely reversed: a good amp can do a lot for a crappy guitar, but a bad amp will always hold you back.
