    Okay, so I'm getting my first electric guitar, right now I'm looking at a Fender Squier. I need a decent amp but I'm not looking to spend much on one, I just want one to practice with so it doesn't need to be particularly loud, just good quality. Anybody in the know who can offer me some advice?

    I used a 10 watt Kustom amp for my first year of playing. Yes they are pretty awful, but as a beginner as long as you get a half decent sound with enough volume to hear yourself it doesn't really matter. The more fancy stuff you have the more you have to distract you from actually learning stuff XD.

    I'm not saying it's not important to get the best for your money, but that you probably shouldn't worry about it too much at this stage =D. That said, I'd agree with the post above about looking at Roland (Cube) amps; they've had good write ups. Most of the major amp brands make an entry level practice amp though to be honest, and they're probably all much of a muchness. The Roland's might just have the edge from what I've heard, so why not check them out first?

    Good luck & have fun

    roland ones are pretty good, i was actually pleasantly surprised by the sound of the kustom amps at my school, only played one the other day but much better than many small amps i've played
