you folks are missing one of the most important contributions to the world of designed amperage.
what about the invincable VOX amps from the sixties when the uk was fully contributing to the amp dilemma of those days gone by. over here they were the amps of choice after 1963. their only drawback was their electrons left hand rotational movement. mostly known as the "Paul" phenomenon. little was done with VOX amps after 1968 but it certainly has laid it's claim of amp history.
for my own electrical choice i'll stay with the tubed fender. not taiwan or Mexico only USA.
