    I like this combo. My happy place is hearing a blackguard bridge pickup into the crunch orange channel (like a JCM 800).

    I play mine through Blackstar amps which have a pretty strong Marshall influence. And a Hughes & Kettner as well

    That is what i found out also..interestingly .. ended up with the 72 Deluxe Tele ,,it has hums & acts very dif in the M's.

    I have a very lucky situation right now. in my band room

    JTM45
    JTM 50
    JMP50
    67/68 Fender Bassman ab165

    my oh my, what a revelation...

    Give me the Bassman..... was blown away so much..i just took it to my tech to go every every single inch again & just move the Bass side a bit to break early...this beast does cleans & can be a monster

    biggest or best observation..the Bassman is so touch sensitive..i mean down to tapping the strings so light it will produce the dull sound if you catch the string immediately..like nothing i have experienced

    .all these amps are great....the jmp50 def, if i want to play heavy most of the time..but in my style clean..to crunch to out front leads as only guitarist in our band.the Bassman became my final destination after a no holds barred search...its been a journey that has taught me respect for all the amps & history of them & how to play better,,,the Bassman just got it in my rock playing world

    I hope your miking technique improved, LOL. SM58 is a front address mic, not side. Today I rely on the trusted Sennheiser e906.

    Me! My Tele gets along famously with a 80's JCM 2204.

    YES, this pic was before installing a mic stand.

    Step by step. First the amps, then the cables and mics, then the stands, and then we test sound

    Can’t take that away from him, not keen on his style though. Just wish he’d let the music do the talking rather than, well, you know.

    Are we assuming all Marshall's are equal ? I did a short stint with a 50 watt/ JCM 900 half stack for a bit, it was ok but it did not produce the typical Fender tones I was desiring.

    then of course , which speakers are in the Marshall cab ?

    The question to me is way to vague

    I would consider a JCM 800 /50 watt but thats about as NEW as I would go. Even at that, its a totally different sound from the Fender amps and the Maz 38.

    You should try the Marshall Origin 50

    You can get Bassman like sounds and further. I can tell you

    I play a Tele through a Marshall.

    I also play a tele through a Princeton, VoxAC15C1, Bassman LTD, Deluxe, and Vibrolux. All different in their own way.

    I think that the music has talked quite well.

    Years back, as in 30+ years ago, I wasn't into Teles. One night in 1988, our band did local support and the PA for a touring band named Naked Prey. They were from Tucson, I was in Green Bay, WI, at the time. Singer/2nd git had all of his stuff except his Tele ripped off at some point in their driving the US in a Ford Pinto wagon. He very politely asked if he could use my amp, if not, the lead player could handle the show.

    I said yeah, so he plugged into my early 800 half stack with his Tele. The sound was amazing! Crunchy, but not Dimarzio Super D like (which is a great sound). It just had this balls out bright crunchy sound. Naked Prey was basically an old school hard edge of classic rock type band. They wrote their own material.

    Took me some years to get my own Tele, but I finally did.

    To the OP, while I play a Tele, I'm using Marshall clones now. A Rockitt Retro 50, and a Trinity 18. Sounds great with both.

    That”s my point, the music got across the anger and angst without the need for the ‘performance’.
