    I have a Princeton Reverb. It is one of the new limited edition models with the sunburst ash cabinet. It is like a beautiful peace of furniture and never leaves my music room. Anything sounds sweet through it: humbuckers, single coils, etc.

    Almost forgot about my tweed Blues Jr. I don't use it much anymore. But the SG can really overdrive it to a nice tweedish sounding grind.

    Wooh, that is cool. Probably I'm gonna change the speaker also. But first I want to play some gigs with the stock speaker.

    I only use my Fender Pro Tube Twin Amp now. It's one of the 2 channel ones from 2007 with the LEDs on the back that tells when the power tubes are about to burst. The sound is great, and it can go from really loud, defined cleans, to super overdriven. In addition to that it's also got built in Tremolo, Reverb, and switchable effects loop that can act as a volume boost :D

    Before the end of the day I hope to be playing my SG Standard through this little guy. As soon as it arrives I have a Pigtronix Looper loaded up and ready to break it in for a few hours so that when I have time later tonight it'll be ready to try.

    I played the Fender Bassbreaker combos in December and then again at Winter NAMM in January and absolutely loved them. I got mine today and after only four hours of break-in it sounds even better to me than I remember. This FSR edition is loaded with a 12" Greenback instead of the V-Style Celestion that comes in the stock amp. I'm really liking this amp. Anyway, the SG Standard sounds lovely through it.... back to playing.

    ...any one I want. It's called modeling.

    Owned several over the years, currently own a'57 Champ from 2011, one trick pony that does an AWESOME trick, and a 2017 '65 Princeton Reverb FSR Blonde/Wheat that's definitely more articulate than the Champ at the same volume, with tube/spring reverb to die for. the next (and probably last) purchase will be a lightly used '57 Deluxe.

    A fender blues junior, heavily modified with a new tweed cabinet hand made in the USA and shipped to Sweden, using 2x10" Jensen p10r. Also swapped some potentiometers for a slightly less "all or nothing" effect on volume and reverb.

    Babysitting a Squier Affinity Strat and a Frontman 15G while a friend waits for his new house to get built.

    Of course, the 15G is hardly what I would describe as being anything special, especially at low volumes... But at full tilt, wheezing all 15 solid state watts through some thrashy speaker distortion, it's an absolute riot. I'm thinking about recording it this way through a full mix on Saturday, just for fun.

    Here it is, sitting next to the Blackstar Core and Katana:

    I run through my Fender Champ 100. Plenty loud and lots of effects I rarely use onboard. I love the combo.

    Pic is in my gallery. I have no idea how to copy and paste via my phone...
