I traded for a Hot Rod Deluxe that has been modded by Jim West at Omega Amps a while back. I dropped a Celestion V30 in there and I just end up using it more often that not. Cool Blackface clean tones, excellent crunchies from the Omega mods, lightweight and portable, loud enough to do most anything I've been doing. What about ya'll?
I just got a Vox ac4tv head and matching cab with a 12" custom made Celestion speaker for Christmas. I go to that every time now. I can't wait until I get my Fender Telecaster back from the repair shop to try it through this amp. It'll be like Christmas all over again. ;D

Pretty rare in Texas too. I've heard great things about them and judging from the Mojo vids it is a well earned reputation. Of course thanks are in order to Mojo for creating yet MORE GAS in me. As if I needed an excuse for more GAS. ;D
My 'go to' amp is my only amp at the moment. A Fender Champ 600. I had a solid state amp, but I traded it in towards the purchase of my Tradition Tele. I also use my Vox AC30 AmPlug as a regular amp sometimes. I hook it up to my old boom box using the 'line in' option. It sounds pretty good, but my Fender is where it's at right now!
I can never decide which one to take, so I go high tech with a POD XT live and usually use the fender black face mod and run it through the PA.. Guitar amps, unless they are mic'd only have a very narrow dispersion. say 45 to 60 degrees so unless you are standing infront of it , you don't hear every part. Since I am older now I don't like to carry anything too heavey. I know it's all digital but The sounds are endless with this thing. Phil
