Let's say the big 4 amp manufacturers are Fender, Vox, Marshall, and Mesa (I'm sure this is probably arguable).

If you could have one amp each from each manufacturer, what would they be? Let's keep it to amps actually made by these companies, not clones. Go!

Fender: BF Princeton Reverb (Grab-n-go)
Marshall: whatever one is closest to the BF Bassman I used to have (JTM45?)
Mesa: MKIII
Vox: AC30 with Blues

The problem is, not matter what else I get, I keep selling it because nothing stacks up to my Mesa MKIII. I hate lugging that thing around, but I never feel I'm performing my best without it.

Blackface Super Reverb
AC30TB
Marshall 50w Plexi

Marshall: 68 Plexi Stock 100 watts

Fender: 66 Blackface Bassman 100 watts

VOX: AC30 Top Boost from the 60's of course

MESA: Pass, Not sure why but I always think of Nickelback when I see Mesa amps. I hate them both, they belong together. (Just my opinion, no offense intended to anyone whatsoever)
