I'd say the common punk/alt rock club stuff stuff you would see back in the late 80s early 90s - if you had the money or cobbled it together you had a Marshall 1/2 stack. That was actually pretty rare. You would see more people that had old funky Crate, Peavey or Fender combos with Boss...
I also saw Bash & Pop (one of Tommy's bands) do a show. They were ok but nothing astounding.
They are kinda hard to find now and I wish I still had the CDs, but Chris Mars two solo records are surprisingly pretty good especially the first one. I remember liking the first one quite a bit.
Don't know if they have it online, but there is an interesting look into the Replacements general dysfunction in a semi-recent interview with Matt Wallace in Tape Op about recording "Don't Tell a Soul".

This cut I came across a couple weeks ago is also really good. That ascending lick that Scofield pulls off at 5.08 is really cool. The runs right after the Tele starts to squeel starting about 6.20 are killer too.
Yeah, I have been following some of those Scary Goldings/Pockets recordings too.
This is the trio that Scofield has had with Goulding that has done a fair amount of gigs over the past few years. (Although they have done other combinations including the collaboration with DeJohnette doing the...
Fender and Mesa both make pretty darn good stuff. There might be some specific models that have some quirks, but in general they are usually of solid to excellent quality.
You will find boodles of Fender 'hot rod' amps being used on back lines all around the world. Those and the...
