    Someone just PM'ed me with this question and I think it's a good one.

    Okay, if your answer is along the lines of either:

    1. "Sorry, I can't pick a favorite"
    or
    2. "Sorry, but I have so many favorites, I'll have to name the all"

    -- then don't answer!!! Or if you must, do so recognizing that the rest of us have carte blanche to relentlessly ridicule you for being the fiddle-faddling, lilly-livered whimp that you must be if can't commit to a simple favorite. :D

    Speaking for myself, I have to say my favorite is not normally attainable...but it's really, really freakin outstanding, IMO. I like playing my Strat into my Okko Diablo pedal through my Franken-Fender "Tonester" with the volume knob set at about 4-5. Holy moley!! Gives me the chills thinking about the last time I got to do that. Thing is, it's way too loud for my band so I rarely really get to cut loose with it...

    Hmm, I've got a few, but I'll only list a couple :)

    1) Strat-> Landgraff LDO-> Bruno UG-30 (amp has to be a bit loud). I foolishly sold the LDO.
    2) Strat-> /13 Dyna Ranger-> JMI AC-15 Twin. The perfect rock/rock lead sound.

    Dude?!?!? WTF...so you're happily jumping right in and opening yourself up for relentless humiliation for being a lily-livered whimp who cannot simply just pick a favorite??? :messedup

    Gents...let the relentless fun-poking begin...:munch

    Today?
    CIJ 62RI Tele plugged into my Valvetech VAC25 (gain footswitch engaged, Vol1 ~4, Vol2 ~6, MV anywhere). Blazing loud to whisper quiet it's still the best Vox + Fendery "edge of breakup" with natural compression I've ever heard... roll the volume knob up and dig in for some great grindy lead tones, roll the volume knob back and it cleans up really nice and stays full.
    The amp really let's the guitar's character shine through - me likey!

    For me it would be my tele -> G2D Creamtone -> Sano 250 (2x12 with weber speakers). I love the clean tone as well as the creamtone distortion with this amp and a tele!
