I don’t like any amps pointed at my head, Fender or not. I keep the speakers below the waste, Fender, Marshall, or whatever amp. Not a fan of full stacks and putting amps on stands or kickback legs either.
Good amps are good amps, whatever the circuit, which artists have nothing to do with really, other than some guys using combos of gear to achieve some stellar sounds for the stuff that they play. And product endorsements are usually bs any way. I’m reminded here of Slash on early GnR stuff. The guitars were a Les Paul copy and a B.C. Rich, and the amp was a tech modded Marshall tremolo amp. That clone guitar helped Gibson to get their sales back up and way beyond, while they cried for years afterward at people copying Les Pauls. And the amp was something which Marshall had dropped many years ago at that point, modified by a tech who used the tremolo tube to add more gain, which Slash managed to steal from a gear rental company twice (never bought it). And I’m sure that Marshall sold tons of amps from people seeing Slash play that stolen rental amp. And Marshall never managed to reproduce the sound of that amp, despite putting out a signature Slash series amp and having access to the original amp for reference and to poke around in. And there was Eddie Van Halen, who took a PAF pickup out of a guitar and used it in a tweaker special part-o-caster made from bargain factory seconds parts, complete with the switch unwired and stuffed into the pickup cavity and truckstop reflectors on the back. And the amp was a British 220 volt Marshall running at the wrong voltage, because he didn’t know better to buy the 110 volt version, which he upped the voltage on using a variac, although still lower than 220 volt for ‘lower volume’.
I do like amps that are constructed the old way though, because they are highly serviceable, like old cars where there was as much empty space under the hood as engine. New stuff is as hard just to take apart for access as the old stuff is to fully repair, if the new stuff can be practically repaired at all. And that is for electronics in general. I was talking to a guy the other day who had a JBL mains array in which the class-d plate amps died for every speaker (not sure what happened there), and he wasn’t sure if he would be able to get replacement plate amps. And no one repairs those amps because they are too complex and surface mount constructed.
