    Right now I'm using a Super Sonic 60, tubed softer in the Bassman channel (via Eurotubes) for two really clean channels and the drive channel. I'm pretty happy with that, and the tone has more depth than my Hot Rod Deluxe.

    I like my old Music Man 212HD, from the days when LeoFender was still with the company. I think of it as an (extremely heavy) super Twin Reverb. I've never turned it to high output--it was plenty loud on low output.

    I put my tele through a Marshall AVT and even though it's a valvestate amp and not a JCMwhatever it sounds magic! I've got a duncan stacked humbucker on the bridge.

    SF Vibrolux.. Plenty of power, easy to carry and very happy
    With a tele.. Oh yah and reverb..
    Teles absolutely love tweed amps but if i were stuck on an
    Island it would have to be my 68 tele, vibrolux and Vanna White adjusting
    The dials for me;)

    I have a Silverface Champ that is also modded to be a Tweed, and a BMRI, and a '68 Blackface Band Master. All three sound great with a Tele.

    Tweed deluxe. It's almost like that amp was made for a Tele's bridge pickup. (Actually, it probably was.)

    I suspect a 5F10 Harvard or 5F11 Vibrolux would sound glorious too, but I've never played through one of those.

    Tweed Deluxe would be my ideal BUT I have used a Twin and a Marshall Vintage/Modern combo to good effect. However, these are a bit heavy ( and I'm no spring chicken) so I'm currently gigging a Fender Champion 100 (on the "jazz" setting) and it gives a classic Tele sound at the right volume.

    I'd have to go along with the argument for the Tweed Deluxe. Just imagine getting a Telecaster and Deluxe in 1955 or so and plugging that in. That was/is THE sound.

    I can't say I've ever owned a Fender tweed, but want one. I'll settle for my SFPR, that works fine. I do think a tele and just about any classic Fender amp sound great. Princeton Reverb, Deluxe Reverb, Champ, Twin, Super Reverb, Bassman, Vibroverb, etc. all work well with a tele.
