Yes, you're right, we should all buy crappy amps and then use a Boss ME-50 to make up for it. That's the best solution.

you can come to your own conclusions about the Frontman, but with the 12inch speakers it has a very good sound to it. I suggest checking out some of the recordings on my profile. I have compared it 1 on 1 to an MG, and the FM was by far the better amp, and very cheap too.

Besides, its the player not the gear, but if you insist on bashing people becuase of their gear than i suggest you leave.

TS, putting EMG's in a Squier may not be the best plan, as I believe the pickups thelselves are worth more new than the guitar, depending on the country you are in.

Yes, coming from the guy who said 'MG = male genitals'. It's all fun and games until someone bashes your gear, isn't it?

I'm very happy that your FM sounds better than an MG. This proves nothing. One lousy amp sounds better than the other. Great.

And 12" speakers don't magically make great tone, just so you know.

true, 12's arent the whole thing, but compared to the 8" in a MG of that size, there is a considerable difference.

My personal opinion of MG's is that they have little in the way of clean tones, and are far overpriced for what they do. The FM, for me, provides me with an indesatructable amp, which I got for about $250. Fair in my mind. When it comes time for me to get a new amp, i'm going to go all the way, and probably end up with a vibroverb, or super reverb. I figured that compromising with a $250 amp was a better decision than compromising on an amp that I want to keep for a good 20 years.

Right, right, don't get me wrong, I'm not defending the MG either. I'm also aware that if you're using amp models and such the choice of amp matters less since you're pretty much using it as a PA at that point anyways. I was just talking amp vs. amp.

Anyways, haha, what was the TS's question again? Oh, new pickups. Well, all amp-bashing aside, the point is that you are NOT going to hear a difference with new pickups on that amp. We're not trying to attack your amp, but rather save you from spending money that won't help you at all.

lol... that is full of wins right there :p

... MEGS? Oh, you mean EMG?
No... They are more of metal pickup. I mean REALLY metal! If you want to sound like Slash, any Seymour duncan medium output would work just fine... his sound coming from the amp.. well, mostly.

Hmm, well I have the AD30VT and I'm still not so convinced that I would invest in new pickups myself for my Strat--even though the build quality of my humbucker is quite disappointing.

Ugh... Another one of these threads.

How about the classic JB/'59 set? That should do what you want it to, but your amp will probably hold you back.

Haha, thanks, bro.

I suggest you just try whatever stock pickups you've got (or are getting in your new guitar) with the AD50VT. Solid amp but I'm not entirely sure new pickups would be worth it with this amp either. You most likely will find that you won't even want/need them.

What he said ^

I was talked out of new pups for my Strat too until I got a better amp.

amp > pups

usually, but not always.
