I've owned many amps most of them hand wired but I have been suprisingly impressed with my bandmate's Blues Jr. for playing and recording. Has a nice tone with both humbuckers and single coils, especially with a clean boost running. Not sure what type of circuit the Jr. uses? I know it runs EL84's so it's got a different tone than a typical blackface Fender. Is there a handwired combo amp out there with a similar tone and circuit but with more headroom available? Some of the Jaguar combos run EL84's and seem to be based on a Fender circuit.
