I'm friends with a GREAT blues/rock pro player who hosts a blues jam on Mondays I go to when time allows. He owns tons of amps and brings a different 2 for jammers to play. His band usually does a 30 min set to start it out. 2 weeks ago, he played a Les Paul straight into a Marshall 18 watt. 2 hrs later he plugged that L.P. into a Heritage Victory, which is a 22 watt Fender Deluxe Reverb inspired amp. Sounded pretty much the same. Tone->fingers.
