I dont know how anyone can be giving advice right now...
We need to know what sounds you are going for and what style you play TS.

What's your reasoning behind this?
It's so dumb how people on here say don't get so and so but they never back it up.

That doesn't answer what amp you have


edit: nvm

your profile says a Marshall stack.
is the control part of the head on the top or bottom of the face of it?

Have myself an MG, what?

You have a half stack version of a practice amp. Seriously, get a new amp if you have 1k.

good Ibanez trems beat out FR brands any day IMO. Edge Pro trems are sex.

You sir, have yourself an MG.

You need a new amp rather than a new guitar.



i agree, people focus too much on their guitar and forget about their amp.

im pretty sure i can plug in any guitar to my set up right now, even a squier or an epiphone(well not an ibanez) and it would sound good...well at least decent

But alls I got is a stupid SG

That SG will sound better through a good amp than a $5000 PRS through an MG

Oh and I also have that Esteban guitar and it came with a little Esteban amp, not sure if its any better.

I'd suggest looking at a 5150/6505+. Also, Bugeras are great amps for their price. Check 'em out, they're almost identical to Peavey 5150s.

I'm just going to say this, whether I'm banned or not..

But you're a fucking idiot.

You hate Ibanez because you're clueless when it comes to decent floyds and above-par playability. The Edge trems (minus the Edge III) are the greatest floyds to this day, other than the ZR, which is another Ibanez trem.

Leader of the Ibanez haters club? LoL @ You

to the guy bashing Ibanez.. You're pretty retarded. It sounds like you're just jumping the "hate ibanez" bandwagon rather than having legitimate reason to hate them. Does Ibanez have a crappy trem? Yes. Do they have ****ty necks? Yeah, sure. But so do low end guitars of all brands. I'm pretty sure you just tried out some sh*tty low end Ibanez and decided that the whole line of guitars suck, when their Prestige line is seriously the nicest playing guitars in my opinion. Their necks are AMAZING, my favorite personally. Their trems are also outstanding (Zero Resistance, the best floating bridge ever). Stop being so ignorant and try a decent Ibanez before you decide the whole BRAND sucks


For the OP, a general rule of thumb is to always have a better amp than guitar.. Most of your tone comes from the amp, not guitar. I know its tempting to have the guitar of your dreams in your hands, but you'll regret it when you realize your tone sounds like crap. A Marshall MG is, well, pretty bad. You can get a JSX combo or 1/2 stack USED easily with 1k or lower. You'll love it, its very versatile

whoa i feel special he wrote a whole paragraph for me and he checked out my profile

ok dumbass first of all i have tried every single ibanez out right now, no lie put it on my mom. why? because i have stupid friends that try and try to convince me that ibanez make good guitars, my guitar tech has 2 prestiges why would anyone buy not one but 2 crappy guitars, i dont know, i even tried out that 8 string ibanez just yesterday which was kinda fun, but thats not the point, the point is theyr not good guitars. and trust me id choose a high end ANYTHING(fender, ESP, Jackson, Gibson) over a "high end" ibanez

trust me buddy i know more about guitars than u may think
