    Ok- we've all heard many magic combinations of amp and guitar, but I am amazed when I hear something that really works and sounds amazing, like Pete Townsend with his tweed amp and the Goodrich volume pedal and Gretsch 6120 used for those great 70s Who albums given to him by Joe Walsh.

    I discovered today an amazing combination- the Germino Club 40 and a Les Paul Deluxe w/ minihumbuckers. It has chunk and clarity in all positions. I laughed out loud when I heard it it was that good. One of the best rhythm tones I've heard, sort of like a really fat Vox cranked up without the compression. Amazing combination...

    Post your discoveries!

    ***EDIT:
    Can you guys edit or post WHAT is special about these combinations?

    In my case with the Les Paul Deluxe into the Club 40, it was amazingly clear, versus a regular Les Paul which is wooly in a nice way with old Marshall non MV circuits, no low end rumbling/mush but sort of very Vox AC30 like but with a LOT of meat on the notes. It is an amazing combination and a nearly PERFECT rhythm tone for me.

    telecaster plus ac30.


    sound angry and sweet when the amp is on 10... tons of control from the guitar.

    Will sound a little stupid, so my apologies since it is not the intention, but I have to basic ones...

    Any guitar through my Maverick 4x10 or any amp with my PRS standard McSoapy...

    However, one recent one that I was not expected... a Tokai Les Paul Reborn through a Krank Rev 1... great harmonies and gain and clarity of notes...

    Les Paul with an AC30. It feels very much like riding an 18-wheeler downhill with no brakes. Scares the crap out of me everytime I crank it, but it sounds so sweet!

    There are so many sweet sounding combinations ... one of my favorites is a Telecaster through a Tweed Deluxe. :AOK

    Simultaneously: My guitar player with his Tele through his BF Super (a total mutt, only about two thirds Fender at this point) while I run my fretless Jazz bass through an SWR Redhead on top of a Triad.

    Perfection.

    My Briggs Special T (Swamp Ash/Maple Top) going through my Carol Ann OD2100 w/ CarolAnn 2x12 EV12L cab.

    I play it on the clean channel with the pre gain at 3 o'clock, and sometimes have a Trex Replica Delay in front.

    It's the best I've heard.
