Anything tweed is good, but my all-time fav was a blonde showman through a vintage marshall cab with a Les Paul and klon to boost it up. Wow!!! What a rock tone!!! :D

I currently own all original 1965 Deluxe Reverb, Pro Peverb and Twin reverb. Man, it's hard to choose because they sound great. I also like the old tweed Deluxe. :cool:

MY '68 Bassman head and '78 Deluxe reverb of course.:D The '65 Vibrochamp I lent to a former band mate and junkie was pretty cool last time I saw it - 10 years ago. :mad:

I've played pretty much everything Fender made in the tweed, blonde and BF eras.

Here's a list of only what I've owned:

Tweeds:

'51 TV-front Deluxe
'52 Super
'55 Champ
'58 Deluxe
Bandmaster (repro)
Bassman (repro)
High-Power Twin (repro)

Blondes/browns:

'61 Super
'60 Twin

Blackfaces:

Super Reverb (2)
Vibrolux Reverb
Bassman
Twin
Dual Showman Reverb
Deluxe Reverb (3)
Princeton Reverb
Pro Reverb

Reissues:

Vibrolux Reverb
Vibroverb


For blackface, the Super Reverb is the keeper. For tweed, the High-Power tweed twin is the keeper, for the blonde era it's the Twin (or a Showman) and for grab-and-go, it's the Princeton Reverb.

Everything else is gone, and other than for the sake of "collectability" they do not match up to the keepers.

For home use and recording, I really like my '65 Princeton Reverb. It makes guitars sound the way that they should.

For gigging, I don't know if I have a preference and it really depends on my volume needs. I think Deluxe Reverbs are at a good wattage/volume point for live work.

Ha!

How can you choose?

I like the Brown Deluxe and Silver champ. Those are the two I own.

I'd like to have a BF Vibrolux or Super Reverb.

I'd like to have Tweed Bassman, Twin, Pro or Bandmaster.

I'd love to have a Blonde Twin just to look at........sigh

Hell I want em all............
