I have a '68 Deluxe Reverb (since about 1997) and a 1999 Blues Jr. (got it used in 2001) and I just love them both, andI bet I'd feel the same about a Princeton Reverb too! Both of my Fenders have served me well for a lot of country, blues and classic rock gigs... I know they are different sounding amps but I seem to be able to make the BJ sound a lot like the Deluxe (as I never really "open up" the Deluxe, its never past 4, so it stays clean, which is what I want) The BJ does not have quite the sparkle or presence or depth of Reverb as the DR, but I can still run it very clean, still with the big Fender Smiley Face EQ and with the Reverb cranked it is about the same as the DR Reverb on 3 (I have a Neo Emi 'Lil Texas speaker in the BJ, which helps with headroom) So I use the BJ for most of my gigs (mostly small/ medium rooms) mainly because it is smaller, lighter, its got a very warm clean tone good foundation tone for anything I play, and likes my OD pedals just fine! Love the BJ, Love the DR, Know I'd love a Princeton! FENDERFENDERFENDERFENDERFENDER Amps!
