Hey all! I just got a Sherwood Green AmPro Jazzmaster. I was wondering what all of your thoughts were on how the Jazzmasters pair with the Blues Jr. Super excited to switch over from a Thinline Tele! Let me know your thoughts. Cheers mates

Also to clarify, it's a 2020 AmPro with the '65 vintage pickups and a maple neck!

I have a Blues JR 3 that has a modded tone stack (basically the same specs as the blackface amps), a few of the other BillM mod and a different speaker, a Jensen C12N. It's fantastic with my offsets. Stock, I felt the amp was a good value for the money, but was otherwise underwhelming. Swapping the speaker livened it up a lot, but replacing the tone stack has put the tone of the amp into the realm of vintage amps from the 60's. I picked up the amp for $300, used and invested another $250 for the mods and the speaker. It was money well spent and I will put this amp against any production fender today, as well as many $2000 > boutique amps.
