I've got my eye on post 2010 Fender American Deluxe Telecaster, Aged Cherry Burst, Rosewood fretboard. However, I've often been more excited and interested in amps. Figuring I might find a Dlx Tele for somewhere between $1000 (used) - $1600 (new), I should carefully consider a nice amp around the same price range. I'd like to see what YOU would do, and maybe why if you were in my shoes. My musical situation: Play guitar and sing in original alt/indie rock band; record mostly my own music in my home studio. We play local bars and are not looking to go any further beyond recording more albums and playing locally. Day job is the way I make money. My live gear: Warmoth Jazzmaster (all premium parts and electronics), Vox AC30cc head with slight mods, Avatar 2x12 loaded with Weber G12H30 55hz variant and Weber 50 watt Alnico Blue Dog, pedalboard with EP Booster, Wampler Euphoria, x2 MXR Carbon Copies, Earthquaker Ghost Echo, Empress ParaEQ. 'Home' gear: Les Paul Standard w/ Seth Lover p/ups, Squier Classic Vibe 50's Tele, Egnater Tweaker head/cab, small pedalboard with Digitech DL-8 delay, MXR Script Phase 90 RI, other bits and pieces I'm forgetting. So, I have a couple nice guitars and a respectable live amp, pretty decent home amp. I do not have a 'boutiquey' amp, ala Bad Cat, Morgan, Top Hat etc. I have the Squier tele which is fun but I'd love to have a super-sweet tele like the Deluxe with its compound radius fretboard (my jazzmaster has that and I love it). But, i'd like a 'super vox' too like the Bat Cat but it must have an effects loop or my delay turns to mush in a gained up amp. If you had to choose to go one way or another, what would you do?
