    I have been using Tweed Deluxes for for years. I recently acquired a 1980 handwired Deluxe Reverb and PRS H 50 watt head.

    What I want is the Seymour Duncan Convertible I sold about 20 years ago. Best sounding amp of the lot.

    The Fender Deluxe (Black Face) RI is a perfect blank slate for tone sculpting. I’ve probably owned close to 100 amps in my 55 years of playing and love different amps for different situations. The one perfect amp is the mid 60’s style Deluxe. It’s small enough to get old with too.

    Yep! The 210 is just about perfect. Sometimes you may see the mid 80’s Concert 210 that Fender/Rivera made. The clean channel is great in that one (dirty channel was a bit mushy). IVe had 2 of those and am sorry I didn’t keep one.

    Not sure, but it will have 'Deluxe' on its control panel.

    I'd have to say my Tech 21 TM-60 1x12, because I'm happy with it and not buying anything else, unless it dies before me.

    WOW!! Clean to say the least. Makes me want to ask if they came with boxes?

    My THR100HD. I would miss my Blues Cubes, Jazz Choruses, Nextone, and HT-1 heads, but I would be ok.

    Great amp.

    So far, everyone seems to be saying that if they could only have one amp, it would be the one they already have... Strange amount of contentment from this GAS-fueled crew.

    I may retract this statement, but I am 57, have no more delusion of grandeur, and I seem to have my gas pretty much under control. Knock wood - is that an idiom?

    Of the amps I currently own, probably my Brown Deluxe.[​IMG]

    Of amps I don’t own...something similar with a little more power available when I needed it. Maybe a 6G3 with 6L6’s lol.
