I've played both in similar set ups. Like both a lot. I'm always playing an old school Tele type guitar running the gambit between classic country and classic rock. Lots of hybrid picking. Mild to medium dirt and a touch each of reverb and delay. I have an Allen Accomplice Jr upped to 35 watts, (6l6s beefier transformer, like a pro reverb I think), that has replaced my deluxe for bar gigs. Currently have Red White and Blues speakers in both amps. I love em at gig volume but the deluxe is mostly going to rehearsals these days and the RW&B sounds a little raw and rough at that volume.
