blackface Fenders (short BF) are very similar to silverface Fenders(SF), beside that they are somewhat underpowered producing a little warmer tone, but still harsh and glassy. BF's and SF's are good for surf music. If that your preferred style then they are OK. Personally I clearly prefer British style amps, ie. Marshalls and Voxes for everything (Blues, Jazz, Rock and even Country/Surf). They all have a warmer, softer tone which is more tube sound, whereas Fenders, beside some tweeds or vintage vibroluxes) are a half way towards early solid state design.
