For longevity I don't think there is any doubt.. point to point is definitely better. There are so many dead PCB amps around it's amazing. My Bassist has 3 dead ones last I heard. My other friend has two dead PA amps. I have 2 in my shop another friend is trying to get me to fix as it's too expensive to take them in. I just sold a Gibson for parts that was dead. Old hand wired amps like fenders etc just go on and on. They are simple and rugged. You can drop one out of a truck and it will still play at the gig.
