Is it worth it?https://classifieds.ksl.com/listing/55103330
No from me too.
Any particular reason why ?
I haven't tried one, but the MG series don't seem to get good reviews in terms of the sounds people expect from a Marshall.
It seems to me, for a practice amp it would be OK at $20, that's pocket change.
I have a mg series. They're ok, not great. I bought it under $50 fully working. It's the one I keep in the basement or bring on the deck in the summer.
One problem of several I'd have with that deal is not knowing that the speaker is really the problem. If I actually considered buying it, I'd take a speaker of some sort and a way to connect it to find out.
Agreed , and the fact that unless you already have a speaker replacing it would be more than the amp is worth, if it is indeed only the speaker.
Some of the top of the line MGs are barely okay, but I'd definitively avoid this one. A great deal on a bad amp is not a great deal. Don't let the Marshall name sway you.
Like others said once you replace the speaker you have an amp that’s only worth the price of the speaker.
Thanks to all...NO DEAL!
I paid $20 for an MG50FX, with some problems. Speaker was OK though. After fixing the problems, it was just a weird amp. I could get a good clean sound and I could get a good crunch, but seems like I had to do something different every time. I didn't care at all for the "FX" part of it. I figured at $20, what the heck. But it also required zero dollars to fix. I wouldn't have paid $20 if it needed a speaker. I used it for vocals at practice for a while, then just pulled the chassis, stuck a 16ohm speaker in it and made it a cab for my DSL1 HR.
If it had been me, If it were able to prove that the output stage wasn't blown, Id probably have ponied-up that $20 just to have a cheap project for the weekend. Maybe a head conversion? Then wrangle the circuitry a little, to taste.
I had similar fun with a little mg10cd, which is an enjoyable rude noisey little b@stard
