    Dr. Z Carmen Ghia.

    Pretty much the universal solvent for me when I don't need Fender.

    My first choice is Fender
    My second choice is Fender
    My third is Fender
    and 4th through 24th are Fender

    I do have a few Rickenbacher amps from the '30s & '40s, but I've never used them for a gig.

    I only have one amp, my beloved Blues Jr, but am considering getting another amp. Vox AC15 or Trace Elliot Velocette, probably.

    In addition to my '66 Super Reverb, I have a '60's Kustom 100 head and matching 1x15 ported cab (still use the cab, head is used for backup only), a Sovtek MiG 50H 50W head for the master-volume stuff, and my main go-to amp for any situation (having retired the Super from active gigging) is a '60's Sunn 200S, a 60W head.

    In addition to the Kustom cab, I also have a DIY openback 2x12 (Celestions) made from a gutted combo amp, and an '80's Risson slant-front 4x12 (Risson-Celestion). And my Super is actually split into a 2x10 combo and a 2x10 extension cab, so I can use the Fender 2x10 with a different head if I like.

    I have a Mission 5E3. An old Rockman 2B for headphone noodling.

    If I get another amp, probably an Ampeg B15N.

    I don't have a Fender amp, but I have 2 amps that are Fender based.

    A Kendrick Roughneck and a /13 CJ11.

    Mid '90s Boogie Studio Caliber. Awesome amp. It's really my #1, with my '78 SFVC as my #2 for small rooms or clean clean clean sound mic'd.

    Other than a Fender, I've had great results with a tuck & roll 1968 Kustom K-50 (1x12 combo) and a early 60's Silvertone 1482 in the studio.

    The only thing other than a Fender that I've used live is a Mesa Boogie, currently a Mark IIC+, but I'm not really happy with what I've been able to get out of it.


    Now for bass, it's a whole other story - Ampeg, Clarus, Roland, etc.
