I'm looking for your opinion as to which way you would go - vintage or boutique - in selecting an amp with a certain tone in mind. I have been looking for a Deluxe reverb style amp. I know several people say to stay away from the reissues. In buying a silver/blackface, I know that resale would always be there, but may need more service/maintainence, where as a boutique version (Carr Rambler?) would command the same price, if not more, but what will it be worth in 10 years if I want to sell it? The vintage Fenders would retain value. I have seen Deluxe reverb "clones" that look interesting as well - I would not feel as bad modifying one of these instead of a vintage one.
