    The country I come from is called the Midwest.
    I'm having a mind block but right now I can only think of two examples of guitarists who typically use an ES-335 into an AC-30 (Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues and Britt Daniels of Spoon).

    Any others come to mind?

    Before Blackmore got into strats, he used a 335 into an AC30. Sounded pretty damn good to me!

    Oh Yeah, and it's an amazing sound. After wondering for several decades, literally, what Blackmore was playing through on "Deep Purple in Concert with the Royal Philharmonic", someone posted a video link to a live performance of that album, and ....

    Eureka! After all these years, you can see the AC-30 and the ES-335 in the video. Ergo, DP in Concert w/ Royal Phil is played on an ES-335 through an AC-30. Sounds freakin awesome!

    The real BOC does not uses VOX (not to confuse it with the SNL skit) , they may have used one very early on with a recording, Backlines are usually provided by rental & carting companies which are usually Marshall at one time Crate was an endorsement.

    I believe that I read that the recorded version of "Hush" was a 335 into a AC-30.
