I like them both, though I think the Bogner has a better clean tone (actually much better).... I have an opportunity to buy either for the same price (used of course)... The Bogner is the standard offering (30 watt version), and the Mesa is in a custom premier exotic hardwood finish. I will use this for a variety of music genres, except hard rock/metal. So either one would fit the bill The Mesa has the effects loop, Reverb per channel, power scales of 5/15/30 watts. Give me your opinions..... BTW both amps are priced, well below used market prices.
