Of course I don’t own either of these, but I’d go with a Kurt Cobain signature Jaguar mixed with a blackface twin reverb. Put in a distortion, overdrive, and noise gate and I’m happy.

There's a LOT of Fender boxes in this thread!
And with good reason!!!

Being in a 'music backwater', I've gone the clone route for my amps. My only 'regular amp' is a Fender (yes, again!) Custom 68 Deluxe......modded with an Alnico speaker and all NOS valves in the preamp section.

My shit changes all the time.

Currently a Marshall Astoria Classic (boutique), two (vintage) early ‘68 Fender black-line drip-edge amps with the BF circuit, and a Marshall Origin 50C.

I hope to pickup another 4-hole Marshall someday, either vintage or RI. I recently tested a Marshall Studio SV20H and that is also high on my wish-list.
