    What a killer frickin' tone!! It doesn't sound like an old JTM45 or any kind of head...it's lacking the bass of something like that. It sounds extremely punchy and focused so I'd guess a combo of some variety. The Rev was known to use old tweed and Brownface fenders back then. All I know is a great 5e3 amp can get you in the ballpark...the rest is in the hands.
