1 GumboKing 2 months ago I just got into guitar playing and am looking for an amp. Initially I was thinking about one of the new Fenders but have read mixed reviews about them. Then I found a few guys that make clones of the classic Fender Deluxes from the 1950s. One is Carl's Custom Amps, another is Stami's and another is Magnatone or something like that. Any thoughts on these amps? They are in my price range (maybe with a bit of a stretch) but certainly look the business. I would love nothing more than to own a vintage Fender tweed but they are expensive and I have concerns about reliability, dinging and scuffing a vintage piece etc. I am just looking for an amp in the 15-25 watt range that I can afford and would be good for rockabilly with some 50s/60s rock n' roll thrown in for good measure.
