It depends what sound you're chasing. I don't like it myself - Champs and Les Pauls both bring a a lot of mids to the table - combine them and it doesn't make for a very versatile sound. Good for classic blues riffing, not much else.
And the hotter the humbucker, the less dynamic and definition the amp can muster, and the greater the treble roll off. It just sounds muddy and out of breath to me. As I said - it can suit blues playing, but not much else.
