I gave all the fender reissues a try and decided I like the 57' Deluxe most. The tone seems to be so 3 dimensional and close - ideal for the telecaster (I use an AV 52 RI). My impression was that there is enough headroom for my small club gigs. But: I wonder about headroom - I heard that many players experiment with preamp tubes to adjust the point of breakup for their needs. I also heard that some use 6L6s in the power amp - can you just stick them in when needed (switch between 6L6 and 6V6?) or is there further modification needed? The one I tried had some scratching noises in some settings and produced some farting with the neck pickup. I heard there is a cure for that but will that take away the fullness of the sound?
